The System ZERO Follow-Focus Regular Combo for Canon T2i from iDC Photo Video is actually a kit whose components come collectively and attach towards the T2i as one particular unit and that along with the T2i can mount a tripod as one unit. The kit is for the T2i because the camera plate of your kit is T2i-specific. And also the kit's becoming "standard" indicates that its focusing plate is the standard version with 4 dovetail slots, as opposed towards the longer XL version with seven slots. The main difference among the two forms is the fact that the longer a single, jointly with a follow-focus wheel assembly, can assistance longer lens constructions. The focusing plate can also be what the principle components in the kit connect to. 1 principal aspect could be the concentrate wheel assembly, which slides into one particular with the 4 slots in the focusing plate, and which tightens into spot by way of a thumbscrew underneath the plate. The concentrate wheel itself is equipped having a soft, replaceable but difficult O-Ring that presses against a lens and adjusts concentrate once the wheel is turned. The assembly has no gearbox and no ring gears and so gives comfort in swapping lenses. Just like the assembly is tightened into spot on the focusing plate, it can be loosened to allow a lens swap. And the kit is compatible using a pretty extended list of lenses (see specs) since the focus-wheel assembly can adjust along the focusing plate slots to most any lens. And for lenses that fall in-between the slots, the focusing plate slides for swift micro-adjustments. And on the side on the bracket is attached a quick-release clamp that in the push of a knob accepts or releases any dovetailed adapter plate that conforms to Arca-Swiss dimensions. And also, the accessory bracket itself has several mounting holes along it for the accessory mounts to become repositioned all through and for added ones, which include iDC's mini-tilter, to become attached. Yet another principal a part of the kit is the accessory mounting bracket, which also slides into the focusing plate and which also tightens by thumbscrew, and to which attach some of the other components on the kit. A grip take care of made from industrial plastic and fastened to a billet-aluminum tall cold shoe is attached using the shoe as a single for the top with the accessory bracket and with each other they give a manage plus a mount for any shotgun mic or for any fill light or for other accessories. The shoe also capabilities a pin registration hole for Speedlites with locking pins. A handful of inches away from the handle is attached one more cold shoe.
With all the accessory bracket as well as the wheel assembly joined for the focusing plate, onto the best from the plate also fastens a T2i-specific camera plate; and the camera plate is what attaches towards the T2i, thus attaching our complete kit with it towards the camera. And towards the bottom of your focusing plate fastens a spacer, by means of which our kit may be mounted onto a tripod or monopod quick-release plate, and which gives one particular inch of space amongst the focusing and quick-release plates thus affording easy access to the red thumbscrews underneath the focusing plate. The spacer also enables the kit to fluidly be moved along a quick-release plate to be positioned within a way that ideal distributes the weight of both the kit and of an accompanying lens.
