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.Read more ›
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!
I've been using their follow focus for the last year and it has been flawless
Had looked at a lot of these follow focus units for many times the price and was a little concerned at what the quality was going to be. Not worried now. Care and precision in manufacturing are evident throughout. The focus stops included in this make it easy to preset your moves. Many follow focus units don't even have these.
Bottom line is I'm glad I didn't spend what some higher-end companies ask for units that do essentially the same thing. This exceeded my expectations.
