Quick one for you: The prototype of the ZEISS Servo Unit for Compact Zoom CZ.2 cine lenses at IBC.
The Zeiss Servo Unit for Compact Zoom CZ.2 fines lenses is planned to be coming out at NAB 2015.
ZEISS Servo Unit (Prototype)
One motor for three Compact Zoom CZ.2 lenses
No matter the application – hand-held, camera crane or dolly: with the Servo Unit ZEISS offers you one compact motor drive for all three Compact Zoom CZ.2 lenses – ergonomically designed, fast and versatile.
The unique toolless assembly saves you valuable time at the decisive moment. Snap-on mounting of the main unit enables fast switching between all three lenses. The focus unit is another modul that can be mounted toollessly and adjust to the respective lens.
