D Focus Systems D/Gear Follow Focus Gear Ring

Product Highlights
  • Use Any Lens with Your Follow Focus
  • Works with Any Standard Follow Focus
  • Injection Molded

The D/Focus Systems D/Gear Follow Focus Gear Ring is a universal gear ring that will let you use almost any-sized lens with your follow focus.

Four sets of legs, each of a different length, come included and serve as the means to fitting a lens on the inside of the D/Gear. The legs attach on the inside similar to how spikes do on the wheel of a bicycle. A lens positions in the center of the wheel, where the spikes meet, and is pressed tight into that center by the spikes. Then you can apply your follow focus onto the exterior of the D/Gear and pull focus.

D/Gear is compatible with any standard follow focus.

  • Features industry-standard 32 pitch (0.8 mod)
  • Large pitch diameter for more accurate focusing

  • 4 x Sets of Different Length Legs to Fit Almost Any Lens
  • One Screw with Nut
  • Rubber Band

      Over the summer I worked on a film where only RedRock Micro equipment was used, and I have to say that these D|Gears are designed far better and of higher quality than the redRock gear were. The ease of use of the interchangeable sized screws make it so simple to get a good sturdy grip on the focus wheel without worrying about it slipping or a screw not being quite in the right position and having it uneven, often which was the case with the redRock gears.

      My only complaint would be that the screws snap in so tight, you have to use so much pressure getting them out to change the size it seems they'll almost snap. I'd recommend buying a gear for every lens you have so that you can avoid trying to switch out sizes of the screws.

      These work great with the D/Focus system... once you can get them on the lens.

      Removing and putting them back on a lens can be tricky, so my recommendation would be to buy enough to put on each lens. It will save you the headache of trying to switch the little screws in and out of the "force-fit" holes each time you have to switch to a different size lens.

      Definitely gets the job done and allows me to focus from infinity to macro on most of my photo lenses.

                  If you have more than one lense, get extra gears for your favorite lenses.

                  Save time on set when changing lenses.

                    Very simple and versatile, and it's cheap!
                    you don't need to buy a full series of gears like the RedRocks.
                    Get a couple of those and install them on your most common lens, when you need to adapt it on a new lens, change the legs and you're good to go.

                    It comes with varied plastic screws in order to fit different lens sizes. Works well, material is plastic though, quite flimsy. One word of advice, in order to have smooth focusing, its best to place some sort of rubber band on the lens ring, so 1.that it doesnt slip, 2. it doesnt sratch the lens housing.

                            Just used this for the first time at a wedding yesterday. Worked exactly how I intended it to and didn't have any problems. Allowed me to use my battery grip on my 60D along with my follow focus. The only thing I would suggest would be getting multiple rings if you plan on using this for multiple lenses. It can get tricky to put it on and if you have to switch lenses fast it's not the most ideal option.

It will save you the headache of trying to switch the little screws in and out of the "force-fit" holes each time you have to switch to a different size lens.

                              Definitely gets the job done and allows me to focus from infinity to macro on most of my photo lenses.
