The newer Canon lenses that have internal focus servos will have a 20 pin connector on the bottom of the lens take a look:
This custom ergonomic unit allows the Steadicam operator to control the zoom while holding the Gimbal handle. Compatible with most Canon and Fujinon lenses (for controlling zoom function). It also has the ability to control focus as well (depends on lens model). Unit will control focus (hardwire) via Bartech Focus Device and with new G-Focus device. This unit also comes with zoom speed control as well as a switch to control zoom direction, there is also a direction switch for focus direction too.
This is basically an “ala cart” unit where you buy the connectors/adapters that are required. I put this one together so that ops that have certain lenses and or focus systems can custom tailor this unit to best fit their needs.
From the Focus Adapters page you can order the adapter cable (lens model dependent) that you need, as this unit will allow you the ability to control focus on many different focus devices and lenses.
This unit will come standard with a zoom adapter from Canon to Fuji unless you need something completely different and have contacted me already.
