I use this on a weekly basis. So far it is holding up and works well with my Follow Focus system. Price is so right!

-First, it has trouble gripping almost every lens I own, not sure why the inside is practically flat.
-Second, you can't really tighten it down for any small lenses, as the excess rubber gets in the way and the tightening part is cumbersome.
-Third, no matter where I place the ring, the tightening piece will hit my camera body or the rails, or barely have enough room to move.

I'm not entirely sure how this was designed to be used, but it looks and operates like an afterthought.

This being inexpensive works great for me. I have a lot of others use my equipment and occasionally pieces get lost. If someone looses this, no problem its a $14.00 replacement at Amazon. This product does the job and is inexpensive,great for me.

A gearbelt has one job: lock into the gear of the follow focus and rotate smoothly without skipping. This is where this gearbelt fails.

The gear belt is thick, which is a mandatory design feature thinner and more expensive gear belts lack. Reason being: I use 1 full set of 77mm B+W nd, pola and uv filters for all my lenses. Each lens has a 77mm adapter ring on the front. For one of my older Zeiss lenses with a 49mm barrel diameter, a thin Zacuto gear belt hugs the lens and when the follow focus gear locks into it, the 77mm wide front rubs dangerously close to the follow-focus arm. A thicker gear belt leaves clearance between the 77mm adapter ring and follow-focus arm - Great thinking in that regard EZFoto.

The problem is that the actual teeth on the gear belt are of a soft pliable rubber that bends instead of firm plastic that makes for rigid teeth. An example of how this fails is that the Zeiss lens I mentioned earlier has a minimum focusing distance of .18 inches. If I focus on a marble that closely and backtrack away from it to the other side of the room, or, if I have a lizard in my immediate foreground and a car passing on a highway in the distance and want to rack focus from 1 inch away to infinity, I need to crank the follow-focus aggressively. When I do this to keep focus, the teeth on the gear belt bend from the stress and the focus skips. This is a huge problem stemming from a basic design flaw of not using the right material for the foreseeable tasks. For less aggressive focusing the gear belt works reasonably well... but good equipment should handle any job. These don't.

I replaced this with the another lens gear from e-photo, the three ring pack. Much better. This, the soft rubber, it doesn't always grab the gear and gets a bouncing/slipping action.

I use this as a lens adapter to zoom on Redrock shoulder rig. It fits well on the manual zoom handle.

This is very easy to use and to move from one lens to another. I bought several and just keep them on each lens....great value.

I was skeptical of having this rubber ring flopping around on my lens. However, I was pleasently surprised that it works well and didn't even bother me enough to remove it when using the camera off of the rail system. The clamp is anodized aliminum. I bought this as an extra gearbelt. One came with my EzFoto Rail System 15mm Rod Rig Base Plate for HD DSLRs.
