so to summarize
-out of the box it is almost unusable (at least mine was)
-if you loosen the nuts on either side of the spindle it makes it MUCH better (worth the money in my opinion)
-if you remove the bearings clean them out and put them back in with the nuts hand tightened it feels amazing (most people would probably say it was perfect I'm just picky)
-this follow focus uses 686zz bearings commonly found in long boards and you can easily find replacement or upgraded bearings online (honestly I believe if you put in top-of-the-line bearings this follow focus would compete with follow focuses in the thousand dollar price range)
So if you're willing to take apart your follow focus and work on it a bit it's definitely worth the money. If you're not than thismight not be for you. hope this was helpful
Being a freelance videographer however, doing things a cheaper budget is very important and is hard to find products that are way below its normal price range with a quality build. I'd have to say that this particular follow focus is very very good. I've gone through other follow focus's like Zacuto's etc ($1000 price range) and this one I think matches up in terms of quality with the Cinevate follow focus. I'm glad I bought this item, and do not regret it. There is however a little play, but with consistent care and bolt tightening, it wouldn't be too much of a problem. I think it's the perfect follow focus for DSLR shooters trying to up their game.
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!
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.
The construction materials and quality is easily that of RedRock Micro or Zacuto, with all metal construction (aside from the marking disk) and extremely low play. I tested the unit thoroughly with both a few of my cine lenses and stills lenses and it was incredibly accurate. If you're on the fence, do yourself a favor and take the plunge. You'll be glad you did!
