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.

Cons: Follow focus has a little play in the internal worm gear (this might be adjustable, but I have not taken the time to check). If you are truly wanting to mark out and preform bidirectional focus pulls, it might be 2-3% off, one way pulls are on mark.

Full size DSLRs or battery grips will need to use rail spacers to fit the focuser (spend your money on a better rig for a D4).

The shoulder pad could be better.

Pros: Well made and engineered. Very nice cuts and finishing. I was not expecting the quality for the price. Like all good rigs, this one is just a few hex bolts (metric) from perfect. The blue nuts have the VERY NICE pull up to adjust feature that I wish my more expensive rig had. My XH-G1 and Z1U fit well and are usable but if you are looking for a full 15mm bar solution for a nice head, look to spend the correct dough on something more suited.

Nitpicking: The rails could be a bit thicker walled. The grips could be better (but after days of shooting, I have had no problems after I locked them in place.

Modifications: It depends on your cameras and lenses, but I would recommend reversing the top plate with the three 2.5mm hex bolts. You will also need a set of 6mm metric hex to tighten down the grips (use blue Loctite as well). A tiny dab of contact cement (no need to let it set up) can give you the well needed friction you need if you use a heavy hand (true about every tube rig).

Overall: I have three rigs, and none of them are perfect out of the box, but this cheap rig, has been the best overall. Using Nikon d7000 d800 and d600 cams with lenses from 15mm 2.8 to 70-200 2.8 with this rig is a pleasure. Features like the pull to adjust thumb screws, and overall versatility, make this a great buy, and a good starting point for anyone wanting to add stability to their hand held shots.
