Customer Reviews

I tried to contact the company and they never replied.
Steven A. Williams
The two main issues are the screw mount for the actual camera (which never seems tight enough to hold my D600 from moving and then the handles.
Lars Thomas Schlereth
All the rails are very high quality and seem very sturdy.

When I first saw this pop up on amazon I was very skeptical, I know you usually get what you pay for. After getting this I realized when you spend $500-$1000+ on a rig and follow focus you pay for the brand name (red rock, zaucto, etc).

This rig/follow focus seems very sturdy. When I took it out of the box I was expecting a very light cheap set up, but the whole thing has a very high quality feel. The only thing that I could see maybe breaking years down the road are the blue thumb tightening screws since they are plastic.

The follow focus is very nice, the whole system has no play. The final gear to the lens has a SMALL amount of play nothing I am concerned about. The gear for the lens stays in place and I have not had any issues, I just need one for each lens now. I trimmed about an inch off the end so I didn't have as much hanging off the end and I can still get around all the lenses I have.

The mounting block has 4 tripod mounting holes and is made of nice solid metal. All the rails are very high quality and seem very sturdy.

The only part of this that is not amazing is the shoulder mount, I didn't expect it to be amazing from the pictures. It really needs the shoulder and either a mono pod or a 2nd support for the torso.

Overall if you are an indie HD DSLR film maker or are looking for a cheap non DIY follow focus rig this is a nice high quality rig that I will be shooting with for years to come. I would highly recommend this to a friend.

Overall, the rig is very nice. I'm happy with it. Easy to hold, and the mount is broad enough to use HD DSLR or full sized camcorder like the Canon XH-A1. I have only tried it out around the house, making home movies of our new puppy, but even though there's no counterweight, it isn't heavy on your arms.

Hand Grips are comfortable. The machining isn't quite precise, as the holes are VERY tight, and it is difficult to slip the rods through. I needed to pry it open with a flat sided screwdriver. However, the threads are tight and responsive. The thumbscrews are plastic, so we'll see how long they last. But I think it is a great option for newbies who can't afford Zacuto or Cinevate rigs.

If you are looking for other options, I would choose eBay. There are better rigs and better prices. I also saw this same item that came straight from the factory for $290. That set includes a chintzy matte box that looks pretty useless (I bought it because I needed a follow focus). I am keeping the one I bought from Amazon because at least I can return it if I need to. I've contact ePhoto through their website twice thus far asking about their LED lights, but no response. So this is a "take what you get" Here is the list of second hand items

So I have been staring at this item for almost two months now...To say the least i was very skeptical...I finally decided to bite the bullet and make the purchase, I figured the worse that could happen is I loose out on shipping and decide to return it...BUT WHY WOULD I EVER DO THAT! Now that it is in my hands I really don't understand why anyone would spend big bucks on big name brand stuff. I am a video production major and also film weddings and other free lance projects. Trust me this is worth the buy! I have my Canon 7D on it with a 24-105mm L series lens and it fits perfectly. With the easy to adjust follow focus I don't ever foresee running into any problems with any lens purchase.

In fewer words...Buy this, You won't regret it.

I should start this review by saying I use this all the time, but make sure to work out your upper body because it has some pitfalls. Also I am going to break this review down in two parts because it really is two different products that you are getting bundled.

The Shoulder Rig: 3.5 out of 5
The shoulder pad itself, is primarily something you can use to push the rig against your body to stabalize your shot, and it works well. There is not counter weight system, all the weight is put on your arms, partly extended, and after a few hours of shooting, it's a work out to say the least. I have run a gambit of different dslrs and lenses and it can take pretty much all of them, it's a pretty sturdy build, at first I questioned the plastic knobs that tighten all the pieces but they have worked really well. A big thing for me is space, and this product disassembles really easily and I can pack it in pretty much anything, which is one of my favorite things about it.

Follow Focus:
For the price I have yet to find something of this quality. I was blown away by how good this thing was. I have since bought a 15" whip that I works perfectly with it. I also use this bad boy off the rig and on a tripod, this follow focus alone is worth the money I spent on the whole thing. One not so great thing is the actual gear ring that goes on the lens is one straight piece that connects to itself so you can't have the focus go 360 around, which I know, I would never need to use, but It's just a small complaint. The focus itself would work great with some 3rd party gear rings, but it hasn't bothered me enough to go out of my way to buy it.
