Does anyone know if the lens has teeth on the focus ring that will match up with my follow focus motor? I have all the different gears for my motor. Also I may need to scrounge up a rod bracket for it today. Anyone know someplace in LA that rents it? The further west the better. I know this camera has a composite output so won't need a downconverter.

Hey Jess,

The gears are pretty common, yes (focus, iris and zoom). Here check this picture, you'll see it:

As for the bracket, what do you need exactly?

Hi Jess,
What FF do you have?
For Preston, you need a 0.50M gear for Canon video lens, and/or a 0.60M for Fujinon lens.
These gears you can buy from Jerry Hill (Steadimove).
Double check the camera plate of this one.
It might be slightly wiggled at the tail end.
Be safe, bring along a small wedge.
Fun flying,
Ken.

I'd bet that it's the standard fuji gear. That camera is the best balanced of all the smaller format cameras

Hi Jess-

Don't know if it's exactly the same camera, but this is a setup I used some time ago.
That is a 0.6 gear for focus.
The 15mm bars adapter is from Cavision (nr R15PU).

Hope this helps.
