          Very easy to attach to a lens and use. I use it on my Nikon d800 and lenses. Fairly easy to figure out. You will also need a rail system to mount it on. It is a lot easier than trying to turn the barrel of the lens

            i had been looking for a follow focus kit for some time. I had heard good things about the Ikan kit, and I'm glad that I purchased it. It is really well made and solid feeling when attached to the lens.

              Got this follow focus on sale and it's been a god send. Amazing solid build and works like a charm. The pull is smooth as butter with little backlash that I noticed. I used it for a short film and it was perfect. And what a great price as well compared to what's out there. Again the build on this is fantastic.

                    Comments about ikan ELE-FGK Follow Focus Cine-Kit:

                    Follow focus is surprising rugged and solid. Feels much more heavy duty than many of the more expensive ones, including redrockmicro. I just wrapped an independent short and this worked very well. The whip/cranks that it comes with are nice as well. Very easy to adjust and use.

                      Sturdy build, comes with a whip, easy to operate... I've had no problems so far with this equipment! The adjustable gears work well, but I can foresee issues if your lens has a very long helical, as you can't go all the way around without the slack getting in the way.

                        Comments about ikan ELE-FGK Follow Focus Cine-Kit:

                        I was a bit skeptical of buying this unit due to the price, but price was a consideration. I was looking for a 'cheap' solution for a follow focus until I'm able to save up a little bit more money to purchase a high-end MB/FF system.

                        I wasn't expecting much, but have had positive experiences with some of the newer Ikan gear lately so I figured I'd give this unit a shot.

                        The build quality is suprisingly solid with just the right amount of resistance in the FF wheel, it was pretty much ready to work just out of the box. The whip and crank accessories are also a nice bonus to the 'kit' at this price point.

                        I'm not a huge fan of the "wrap around" teeth for use with SLR lenses, but I purchased this unit for use with Zeiss CP2 primes, so that's not a major issue for me.

                        Overall another great find and another kudos to Ikan for starting to bring some high-quality, cost-effective solutions to the industry!

                          I bought it for my Red Scarlet because of budget but now I'm very happy I did.
                          The unit is solid, all metal and little to none backslash. It doen't get close to the camera what can be a problem for small lenses but you can mount it on the other side backwards. Just great.

                            The system feels solid and doesn't leave much room for problems. The gearing is tight and sealed. The adjustments are few and easy. I'm really happy with this pro-feeling piece of gear. One of the attachments is ridiculously short though, just over an inch.

                            There is an issue for shorter lenses like I use with my Panasonic GH2 DSLR. The unit can only get so close to the camera and shorter lenses may require the gear closer than is possible. Having a slimmer base or an offset gear would help.

                            Instead, you mount the FF on the rods backwards and get almost up to the camera. The downside of this is that now the same chunk of material keeping you from the camera is on the outside keeping the mattebox away. For my lenses, this can be just a quarter inch but it is still an issue that has to be addressed.

                            Smaller lenses like the micro 4/3rd's manual Voitglanders may need to have up to an inch of gear around them to reach the FF though depending on your setup.

                              Incredibly solidly built unit. Works like a charm.

                              Only real downside is that the lens gear is a lot bigger than most follow focuses I've seen, so it makes using this on DSLR autofocus lenses a pretty twitchy affair. With a smaller gear, this would be perfect - as it is, I'm knocking a star off, since this is a lower-price unit, and that gear choice makes it a little less practical for the DSLR usage most people in this price range would be using.

                              I will be trying to source a smaller gear - I really like this unit outside of that one (easily fixed) problem. It will come in handy when dealing with proper cine lenses, though...

                              Solidily built FF. Great accessories for this price.

                              Couple issues:
                              -minimum of backlash, maybe a few millimeters (a plus at this price, BUT with 5D MKII's razor thin depth of field on some settings, that is enough to be out of focus)

                              -the focus reference mark (thin metal piece that curves to top of wheel for marking reference) is very thin metal. Also not movable. Which limits where you can pull focus from, and how the FF is positioned

                              -gear is not easy to mount on opposite side of FF.

                              Recommended as a good value buy, but with reservations about it's usefullness as a DSLR rig, and in other complex camera rigs.

                                    Super smooth, large diameter makes things easy to operate. I've actually setup with and without the ring on the lens and used tightly fitting rubber bands to achieve clean motion. I'm really pleased after researching all options, this was a great buy! FF should not be as expensive as they get, I mean there really isn't much to it after all.
