follow focus for Z1U

Does anyone know whether a follow focus exists for the Sony Z1U???

That DP on the video clip promo for the Z1U who shoots for JAG and was talking about such indispensable accessories as a follow focus had one attached to his Z1U camera.

I tried to get hold of one but was told they don't make one yet for the Z1U??? Something about an adapter ring needed for the Z1U.

Feedback please.

I could find one for the FX1, but should work for the Z1 too I think.

Chrosziel have a DV follow-focus drive available. I bought it originally for a DVX100 and now use it on my Z1. It will fit onto 15mm support bars.

Its not cheap but it looks of a more solid professional build than the Cavision model.

Go to www.chrosziel.com and look through the DV section.
