Hi.
Lovely pic as usual. Is it an Angenieux?
I don't have a 5d yet. I do have Genus MB, old AI, AIS Nikon primes, RedRock follow focus.
Can you tell me If RR follow focus works with shorter lenses (talking about eventual interference where focus ring is so close to 5d body)?
Cheers.
Alvise
btw I'm the one who pointed Steven Rushford to your site.

RR FF works with short AIS lenses on my Genus rails with the help of The last piece: Manfrotto 357 Universal sliding plate. This piece was necessary to allow clearance for Follow Focus to reach lens gear on small Nikon prime lenses that I have. What ended up being is that FF assembly is not moving along the 15mm rails at all when switching lenses. I just slide the camera back and forward. Down side is that this metal adapter makes the whole set up a bit heavier.

What are you using for the view finder? I have seen the 5D with this on it but can't seem to find information on it any where. I looked on the redrock site but couldn't find it.

5D MK2 Every Day Set Up

Steven,

Thanks for this post. I have the Redrock follow focus unit available for 5D2, but undecided on the mid zoom lens for every day use. After viewing the images on your site, I'm still unable to pin down the make and specs of your selection.

I would be obliged to you for that information, if possible.

Ron

Great looking set up. What's the 'sticky up' eyepiece above the Hoodloup Steven?

On Stephen's site he says it's an Angenieux 28-70mm that he bought on eBay.
