  • Entirely Geared Transmission
  • Removable Marking Plate
  • Dual Focus/Zoom Control Option
  • Compact & Lightweight

The Cavision RFD15BF is a Basic Mini Single Wheel Follow Focus mechanism for your mini-DV / prosumer camera. It provides you with a convenient, quick and precise method for controlling the focus on your camera using a knob on the side of the camera without the need to constantly reach over to the front of the lens. Follow focus systems have become a staple of professional photographers and videographers needing to frequently adjust a camera's focus according to changing scenes; hence the name "follow" focus.

Note! Rods support not included

Optional Dual Focus/Zoom Control
You can mount two RD15Bs on the same rods support, and then use one for focus control and the other to control zoom.
Removable Marking Plate (Spring Loaded)
A removable marking plate will allow you to mark focus points during rehearsal and then use those points as guides during the actual shoot.
Compact & Lightweight
Like your camcorder, the RFD15BF is designed to be compact and lightweight for easy transport and storage.

      Comments about Cavision RFD15BF Basic Mini Single Wheel Follow Focus for Fujinon Lens:

      Bought this for the Cavision shoulder rig to use with the 5D. After spending a month trying to get the correct gear size for the 24-105 mm lens (correct size for the focus ring is the RFGR8), it turns out the the marker (in my view a crucial part of setting up a follow focus shot) does not screw in or hold its position. Cavision is slow to respond to requests to replace it. Buyer beware! I want to like this product, but the manufacturer is getting in the way.

        Buy Cine Version for 0.8 gearing

            Comments about Cavision RFD15BF Basic Mini Single Wheel Follow Focus for Fujinon Lens:

            This is currently the cheapest, properly made (ie small sealed metal gear box) FF on the market, and it works well. Only a very tiny amount of slop/back lash, which appears to be between the plastic gear and the metal gear shaft, not in the gear box.

            If buying for a D-SLR, buy the Cavision Cine version instead. It's $20 less and comes with the standard 0.8 cine gear.

            Mine had a little fine rust between the screw and shaft that holds the gear wheel on the standard side, which was a little disappointing, but doesn't effect performance.
