We'd all love to become the next Martin Scorsese or Quentin Tarantino...right? Imagine the fame, the popularity, the uh, other benefits of being a famous director... Well, the excuses you've been hiding behind that were supposedly preventing you from getting out there and making a name for yourself are becoming diminishing each day with the rise of HDSLR filmmaking. Modern Digital SLR cameras pack incredibly large sensors into a small space, allowing you to get excellent high-definition video from a compact and affordable package. The accessibility of the new filmmaking tool has taken the cinematography world by storm, with cameras such as the Canon 5D MKII leading the way. The problem is that DSLR's were made to take still images, they don't have the best form factor and they lack a follow focus unit. Luckily both of these issues are easily addressed with one of iDC Photo Video's SYSTEM ZERO Gearless Follow Focus units, made right here in the United States. ($399+)
We've thrown the SYSTEM ZERO around the globe several times, and so has its designer, Canon Explorer of Light and Veteran Hollywood Director, Bruce Dorn. We haven't been able to break it, no matter how much abuse we dish out. In fact, we've found the SYSTEM ZERO acts as a great roll cage for your expensive camera gear.
The SYSTEM ZERO is available for a wide-range of popular model digital cameras, and offers the ability to simply bolt-on several accessories, including handles, external screen mounts and more. Did we mention that it's completely gearless and requires no modification to your camera or its lenses?
