Out of the box someone commented about how much play there was to his new Kamerar Follow Focus. The amount of play he mentioned seemed too excessive, so I asked him to check the small allen bolt that holds the knob in place to make sure it was tightened down. After tightening up the screw, this solved his problem and Lainol generously created a video reference on how this procedure is done for us

Once you remove the marking disc on the FF, you can find a small hole that leads to a #1 allen screw. Tighten the sucker down, and you should be good to go. If you come across what might feel like play on the Kamerar Follow Focus, check to make sure it isn't just the knob sitting loose.

I saw plenty of reviews of this follow focus and it seemed like a quality product, so i ordered one. When i received it, i was surprised of the all metal construction and solid build quality, so far so good. Then i put it on my rail system and linked it up to my lens... this is where I started to regret my decision of ordering one.

The follow focus turns perfectly without it linked up to a lens, hardly any backlash but as soon as you attach it to a lens the focus almost feels like your forcing it, I'm not sure if this is because of my lenses (Rokinon cine lenses) or if its the follow focus, but my guess would be that because the follow focus is only mounted on one rail it is not stable enough and creates a small twist when you pull focus causing it to be uneven. If i had the choice i would have never ordered one and saved up for a dual rail mounting system instead.

Absolutely love this follow focus. So far this is only the second one I've bought but it blows the first one out of the water. It has a solid build, little to absolute no play if you tighten everything down. I would recommend this product to any film maker on a small budget looking for a solid follow focus but doesn't want to fork out an arm and a leg

I just have to say I'm appalled. In a good way.
This thing is 100 bucks. I just got it today, and I'm surprised at the build quality. It's pretty freaking good. I saw it off Oliviatech's blog.

It's not as sleek nor has as small a footprint as the other follow focuses I've worked with. I even have an Arri one which was way more expensive than this and while the Arri still beats it out design-wise and in craftsmanship --

The Kamerar's follow focus functionality is 100%. Now I haven't used it in the field yet, so I don't know if it'll dissolve in rain or rust easily, but I have no qualms about leaving this on my rig and bumping around and being rough with it.

I assume this is another one of those Chinese-made products that is a great bang for your buck.

It's all metal. Even the gear is metal. The only plastic part on the FF is the marker disk. And the design is not even bad at all. The play is pretty minute...perfect enough for run and gun videography or no budget independent films. Probably would use the Arri on a bigger budget set but for easy low-risk shoots, this is great.

when i first received this item i was very happy with it the packaging was really nice, the unit felt incredible its super solid feels like nothing could break it! but the second i hooked it up to my lens i suddenly realized why it was so cheep. Out of the box it was almost unusable when i would turn it it felt like the gears were just grinding agents one another and at one point i was turning it and it got completely jammed and i had to use a lot of force to get it to turn again. So at this point i was dying to know what was going on inside that tiny little solid metal gear box so like any customer who doesn't care about his manufactures warranty i started taking the thing apart (im a pretty mechanical guy). There are two nut like things on either side of the spindle attached to the the gear that actually makes contact with your lens. I started by removing those with some needle nose pliers then i removed the 2 bearings and the the spindle (which has a gear attached to the middle of it inside the gear box) i was expecting the see a bunch of stripped gears but that was not the case all of the gears were in perfect condition. So I put the spindle back in and put the bearings back in and then before putting the nuts back on i turned the Focus wheel a few times and found it was MUCH smoother so I figured I had somehow fixed it and put the nuts back on and tighten them down and it was back to how it was if not worse. I found that if you put the nuts on and just hand tighten them it's much smoother. So just by loosening those two nuts you can take an almost unusable follow focus and turn it into a very good follow focus.Read more ›

I just got this Follow Focus to accompany my Rokinon Cine lenses on my Black Magic Cinema Camera. It's like a match made in heaven.

The Follow focus doesn't have a "quick release" function like other more expensive versions, but that doesnt really matter since it's a single rod mount, so just loosen the clamp, swing it out of the way, switch your lens and pop it back up and your good to go!

CONSTRUCTION:
All Metal, except for the marker disc which is plastic (of course)
Nice touches for me are the magnetized focus marker ring, with some pressure it pops off to wash it, but stays on tight otherwise.
There is only a little bit of play in the gear box, i heard you can tighten the gears to get rid of that though. Play is so negligible I don't even bother.
Reversible lens gear is fantastic, gives you more flexibility in setting where you want your follow focus, hand grips, etc to go.

All in all this is a fantastic option for the budget filmmaker and even non-budget minded people. It's a quality device and I see no difference in function between this and other high end devices.
