The iDC PhotoVideo System Zero XL2 Follow-Focus with Viewfinder (for Canon 5D MkII) is a versatile follow-focus system designed to lend cinema-like focus control to your DSLR videos. An adjustable focus wheel attaches to one of seven dovetail slots on the sliding focusing plate, which in turn mounts to the dedicated base plate beneath the camera.
The base plate, designed expressly for the Canon 5D MkII, can use any standard quick-release assembly for mounting onto a rig or tripod. It also accommodates iDC PhotoVideo's adapted Hoodman HoodLoupe, included, providing you with a larger viewfinder for even more precise focus. When not in use, the focusing wheel slides away from the lens and locks in place, or the combined baseplate/focusing plate/wheel can be removed as one piece (using an Allen wrench) for easy switching between video and stills shooting.
This XL2 version works with most wide to mid-range telephoto lenses, with a second wheel assembly included for use with the zoom ring on Canon's 70-200mm zoom lens. For smaller prime and telephoto lenses, the Standard kit - with its shorter focusing plate - may be more suitable.
