Hi,

what follow focus will work with the XTR Prod screw-in 15mm-rods in combination with Zeiss Superspeeds (Mk2, Mk3)? The lens gears are very close to the mount (compared with Zooms) and the follow focus can't be brought very close to the mount because of the unique front of the Aatons.

What follow focus specifically won't work?

What about the Petroff? The old Arri SR style FF's? The different Chrosziels available?

Thanks,
Marc

Chrosziel video or cine rigs should work fine with it: http://www.chrosziel...StudioRig_E.pdf

Arri FF4 or 5 are nice as well.

Pretty much anything 15mm, that arms in (under or over) and has a focus gear you can unscrew, remove and switch to the body side of the arm, should do nicely.

Just don't try to go too cheapo "Indie models" with either brand, as they tend get beefier and more difficult to slide into place.
