Ikan's EV2 DSLR Follow Focus Kit contains the FG Follow Focus Cine Kit and the EV2 Adjustable Baseplate. With the adjustable baseplate, you can achieve easy left, right, forward, and backward maneuverability.

You can use the FG Follow Focus with all Ikan Elements kits or any 15mm rod-based camera support system. An integrated 2" (5cm) diameter control wheel allows the follow focus to offer low backlash. You can use the FG Follow Focus with standard film pitch gearing of .8 MOD supported by a 2.3” (5.84cm) diameter focus gear. A horizontal adjustment feature combined with a focus mark indicator and lockable focus control allows you to use the follow focus with a wide range of DSLR lens diameters. Precision machined from aluminum, the FG Follow Focus integrates a lightweight (2 lb / 0.9kg) construction.

The EV2 Adjustable DSLR Baseplate includes an integrated tripod plate, two 6" (15.24cm) long 15mm rods, and features 1/4-20 & 3/8-16 mounting holes that accommodate the Ikan Elements Quick Release Wedge and Elements Handle Arm.

Also included in the kit is the 17" (43.18cm) FG Follow Focus Whip that integrates a vinyl covering and a crank stability grip for smoother and enhanced control. Connecting via a square compact connector, the whip provides wider control over a larger distance. You can achieve faster and accurate focus control via the 2.3" (5.84cm) FG Follow Focus Crank Knob that allows you to rapidly move from one focus mark to another.

You are also provided with a beveled dry-erase marking disk, 2.5" and 4.25" diameter adjustable zip lens gears, and 2 no-scuff / non-slip lens gear liners.

              Best Uses

              • Pulling focus

              Comments about ikan EV2 DSLR Follow Focus Kit:

              So the follow focus part of the kit is absolutely awesome and flawless. I've seen a couple of other reviews complain about inaccuracies in pulling focus, but mine is absolutely dead on every time. Yes I've used Arri, Chrosziel, RedRock, etc. so I know what a high-end follow focus feels like. I just think for the price and everything that comes with it, you can't beat it.

              The base-plate is almost really great. The problem is with my particular camera (GH1) one of my lenses, 50mm Nikon AI, doesn't reach the follow focus gear because of how far back the slot in the base plate ends to attach the camera. Luckily my Dad has a machine shop in the backyard, so I'm going to modify it by extending the slot a 1/4". Ikan should know that many of us use primes, not the cheapo zooms that came with the camera. My other lenses, 24mm, 35mm, 85mm Nikon AI lenses barely reach the follow focus gear. Luckily I mostly use the follow focus on my Letus rig and use the GH1 for tight shots or run and gun.

                  Best Uses

                    Comments about ikan EV2 DSLR Follow Focus Kit:

                    Pros:
                    1. Self-contained kit
                    2. Relatively cheap

                    Cons:
                    1. Won't work with short focal length lenses - has a minimal distance between the lens focus ring and the body of the camera, I think it's about 2 inches (can't be sure because I returned the device shortly after getting it).
                    2. The focusing gear makes an audible clicking noise - THIS IS A BIG CON
                    3. Brand new, out of the box, uniformly covered with white plastic particles, the result of cheap packing material used - I spent an hour blowing it all off as to not expose my expensive equipment to aggressively sticky minute particles (which is also irritating to your airways, I might add).

                    Conclusion - if you don't mind spending hours cleaning every nook and cranny of the kit (which I did) before using it AND you don't mind the clicking noise the focusing mechanism makes, then it's a relatively inexpensive follow focus setup. If you do mind the aforementioned issues, then keep looking.

                    Comments about ikan EV2 DSLR Follow Focus Kit:

                    Ikan is my kind of company: striving to deliver the best possible product for an affordable budget. I've had mixed experience with my first few Ikan purchases, but this completely tips the scales. Cinema-grade mechanics coupled with practical field-friendly adaptations make for an extremely effective follow focus kit sitting astride a well-made baseplate and rod system. Definitely money well spent. Did not come with carrying case, so I kept the foam insert and put it into a spare Pelican case.
