The perfect accessory for an extraordinary set
Author: Luis Pavia
The professional field is characterised by excellent quality tools and high levels of specialisation. Today, we have an example of one of those extraordinary components developed by one of the best independent manufacturers of accessories for the film and television industry: Chrosziel. Chrosziel is widely recognised for its optical control system, among other components.
The zoom servo we’ve had the chance to test on this occasion, the CDM-MK-Z, is characterised by being specifically designed for Fujinon’s new cinema range lens, the exceptional 18-55 and 50-135, both T2.9, which share exactly the same physical dimensions.
Its LAN-C control renders it compatible with remote controls of any brand that use this protocol, and thanks to its two connections, it is ideal for cameras like the Sony FS-5 and FS-7, whose sophisticated handles keep all its camera functions through the servo.
For our analysis, we set up the Chrosziel device with a Fujinon 18-55 lens and Sony FS-5 and FS-7 cameras.
The equipment consists of a small, lightweight box that fits securely into the lens with two screws in a matter of seconds and does not require any adjustment since the fitting of the elements in general, and the gear, in particular, is simply perfect. There is no margin for error, and it accepts two positions, to leave free space on either side of the lens according to our needs.
