The FC-U provides smooth manual focus control of your Sony PMW-300/200/EX1/EX3 from the tripod handle. Similar to our pro rear focus controls, the FC-U adds a clamp-on EX gear adapter and a bracket-mounted gearbox that fits on most rod systems (15/19mm).
FCU on DVRods SystemRequires Rod Support System (15/19mm). If you do not have a rod system, see VariZoom’s DV Rods System: a high-quality rods system for DV/HDV cameras which enables you to attach matteboxes, focus control systems, wireless adapters, and other accessories (Sold Separately).
The DV Rods system boasts an impressive range of adjustment that will accommodate most cameras, and the X-Y rods-adjustment plates are even reversible to allow greater upward adjustment. When paired with VariZoom’s new quick release mechanism, the possibilities are extended even further. The DV Rods system has additional threaded holes to enable attachment of aft-mount rods that will allow even more accessories to be mounted behind the camera, helping to counterbalance the fore-mounted accessories while keeping the overall configuration’s center of gravity low.
Designed to work with the VZ-FCU and EFCU focus control systems for the Sony PWM-EX1 and EX3, the DV Rods system not only provides a mount for the focus bracket, it will allow users to add a mattebox or any other accessory that can be mounted to standard 15mm rods (19mm-15mm step-down adapter rings available for separate purchase). The DV Rods system was designed with functionality in mind, with a broad, flat mounting surface and low profile to prevent top-heaviness that can lead to awkward tilting or wobbly shots.
Highly Recommended Accessory for use with EX1/EX3 – VZQRP quick release plate. The VZQRP allows great flexibility in mounting the camera, adjusting and dismounting it.
