It works well, feels solid, and looks good.

I am using this on an F3, it works every bit as well as one costing five times as much.

The metal gears make this Follow Focus extremely accurate.

Now... this is the way to design and build a follow focus! Especially for those without Hollywood budgets.

They did their homework on this one, keeping both the independent filmmaker and the larger crew in mind with features to make life easier.
I am an instrument designer and machinist by trade and I will give this an A+ for workmanship and functionality.
The build quality and form/fit/function/finish are excellent, rivaling units costing an order of magnitude higher.
$ave the extra bucks for new glass instead!

My favorite feature is the two-point hard stops for focus. I tested them with my Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens, focusing on two different subjects, one about a foot away and the other at 30 ft. With the aperture wide open and viewing at 10X live-view zoom on an external monitor, I found they provide imperceptible error in focus repeatability with every rack focus attempt. I checked it at least a dozen times and there was no shift. You can't be heavy handed with this, though - you have to be gentle as with any precision instrument. Speed cranks can be a problem for some.

Even if you prefer not to use the hard stops, they are great for setting rotational limits for your lens if you are using the typical still type AF lenses (not the cine primes) that will normally cause the focus range to slip when you exceed the end-point friction limits. Setting these limits in advance will keep your witness marks in sync with the lens focus. Of course, setting your two focus points as above will also accomplish the same thing.
(Always switch the lens to manual focus if you are going to be rotating the focus ring at all).

Also, I would suggest using china marking pencils rather than whiteboard markers for your marks.

Yes, this was somewhat of a disaster but bear with me.

This is not the first EzFoto product I have purchased from Amazon. In fact I have been very surprised and pleased with the quality of the products. Working in the industry I get to see the crazy inflated, Unjustified prices ... I'm talking to you Redrock Micro ... so EzFoto and others that I have found, they meet the needs, quality and durability that we are looking for.

Now back to the story, We ordered a EZFoto Follow Focus for testing. The Unit arrived right on time and was well packaged and in perfect shape. We mounted the unit on the rails and got ready to test. That is when the DP realized that the unit was broken. You see there are two small pins that hold the main shaft in the housing to meet with the secondary gears. Since the pins were slipping the main shaft would slide out without pressure.
Ok so that was the disaster because it meant no testing for the day.

Here is the lucky part, since the unit slid apart we could see all of the internal working. What a surprise. I would not have faulted EzFoto if they have some heavy plastic parts for the internal workings of the system but this was just the opposite. The gears themselves were heave brass gears that looked as though they had been balanced. Industrial lubrication throughout. The tolerances for the drive shafts were very tight. All in all it was impressive that a unit that cost hundreds if not a thousand dollars less had this level of precision, attention to detail and industrial components.

I'm giving it a 4 star only because I was pissed that we did not get to shoot that day... But I jumped on Amazon and ordered a new one that should arrive tomorrow!

This item should have all 5 star reviews in my opinion!

Excellent build!!!

I also have a different fallow focus "D-focus V3" from Jag35. This EZFoto fallow focus makes the D-focus look an feel like a happy meal toy! The Ezfoto is almost all fully built with metal - including shafts and inner gears in fact the only plastic in this build I can find is the small secondary gear you see in the pictures which is a sturdy and solid gear, and the white marking ring and of course the outer lens gear is plastic and rubber. The only con in this kit (if there was one) is the outer gear design mounts tight to the lens - which in comparison to a larger outer gear - puts more torque on the camera/lens mount on your rig. I like the outer lens gear that comes with the "D-focus" better (they are universal/exchangeable I might add) it sits higher off the lens and is made of hard plastic (like the secondary gear on the EzFoto) giving it a larger radius and therefor puts less torque on the lens and camera to minimize slight shifts in the lens/camera as you transition your focus from in to out. The EzFoto outer gear does works fine but if you need another I highly recommend the "D-focus" outer lens gear for a second, it will also give you more flexibility in camera height if you have a grip on your DLSR. The only other thing is weight, as this is an all metal build it is a solid and a Heavy unit. I moved my D-focus to a light weight rail system for a smaller cam as it is almost weightless in comparison. The two above kits are almost the same price if you are looking to compare your options. In my opinion the Ezfoto wins hands down!!! Buy it! You will love it!
