Rack focus testing on the 50mm f/1.4 Canon lens

Rack focus testing on the 50mm f/1.4 lens. from Karl Soule on Vimeo.

This was shot handheld, just following the action at a friend's house as they discuss the amount of sugar in an energy drink. Lighting is all natural.

I've been very surprised how easy I've been able to pull focus with the Zacuto Z-finder in place. I would definitely rate this as a "must-have" for serious video work with the camera. I still need practice, but I'm getting more comfy with the camera each day. The Z-finder gives the camera the traditional 3-point contact with the body. With 2 hands on the camera/lens, and my eye in the viewfinder, the action is amazingly stable.
