Product Highlights
  • Used with Genus 0.8mm Pitch Gears

The Genus Follow Focus Flexible Lens Gear Ring is a required component of any of the Genus follow focus systems, designed to mesh with 0.8mm pitch gears. Durable and highly flexible, the gear ring wraps tightly around the focus ring of any DSLR lens and can be adjusted as needed. By using such follow focus systems, it becomes much easier to achieve smooth, precise focus changes with lenses not originally designed for filmmaking.

      Comments about Genustech Follow Focus Flexible Lens Gear Ring:

      This is a great alternative to the Redrock gears! Since I have lenses of all widths I actually own two of these. One of them I left this size, the other I cut down so I could use it with smaller lenses. It's just as strong as the redrock gears and creates a tight fit!

            I purchased this gear ring from my Canon 5D Mark II and 24-70 2.8 lens. It work great with my 3rd party follow focus and was super simple to setup. Great product.

            Comments about Genustech Follow Focus Flexible Lens Gear Ring:

            Has a nice universal fit on lens that can adapt to a large range of sizes. The tightening mechanism could be a little smaller but overall this is a lot better than having to buy a lens gear set that some other brands provide. I use this with my Redrock Follow Focus V2 and it works pefectly.

                  Comments about Genustech Follow Focus Flexible Lens Gear Ring:

                  Those lens gears are used on photo lenses - lenses with extremely low tolerance for "out of focus-ness" (if there was such a word) as the focus ring often moves very slightly to change the focus plane tremendously. As this system allows one to flex the gear thus it also allows one to change the pitch of the gears (even if just so slightly) increasing possibility of error in the focus.

                  I bought 2 of these units, they work very well, much better then the redrock lens gears that came with my DSLR support system, a little high on the price, but what choice do you have, I have yet to see a better solution for this lens, follow focus gear problem.
