seems like a great piece of kit on the cheap (compared to other solutions)... thoughts?

i put in an order for mine a few minutes ago. looking forward to getting this and a larger external monitor.

That looks like a pretty awesome idea, bit on the expensive side, but cool none the less. Wouldn't the noise from the AF motor be recorded?

Still, it isn't going to help you if you mount manual focus lenses, like for example the carl ziess cp .2 lenses designed for video that were just announced in a range of dslr mounts.

saw it a while back and i am really thrilled!
i will be the first in line to hear your thoughts bolts.
if it can do a really slow focus pull i'll be ordering one as well but from the looks of it in the vid below it seems to very chunky.. (medium step size so maybe it has a finer step size as well?)

Woot, cool stuff, expensive though.

A related albeit a bit noobish question, can you control the EOS cameras via USB with a computer and some softer?
And which software if yes?
And which cameras (if not all EOS)?

Yea you can teather and control these cameras from a computer, not too sure about how the focusing works, but I guess you can control that too

Indeed, i run the eos utility to remotely control my cam and really see what is going on.
It will also allow timelapse shooting and full control over all the bells and whistles.
There is also dragon stop motion to do even more (kb tested this and got some nice results)

EOS utility
