On this page, we'll go over the setup and operation of the Glassmark II Lens Encoder.
Choose the gear that correctly interfaces with your lens. Gears can be replaced by using the included 1.3mm allen wrench.
Select the rod clamp that fits your setup, and slide it onto the clamp track.
During usage, the first time the gear passes the top of the encoder, it's position will be stored internally. Each time the mark passes this position throughout the day, the current position will be compared to this stored position. If the position has changed, due to missed steps or drift, it will be reverted back to the original. This allows the encoder to remain extremely stable over the course of a shoot day!
Tightening the knob will lock the clamp to the encoder and rods.
When first powered on, the encoder will indicate it needs to be zero'd.
It doesn't matter which side of the lens you mount the encoders. When you Zero the encoder, it will report positive values no matter which direction it is spun.
Set the lens to the following settings:
Once set, press the Zero button to zero the encoder.
We realize that by adding Conduit boxes and two pieces of software, we've made understanding the system a little confusing to the customer. In this section, we'll try and clarify how everything connests.
