Comments about FGM08-34 Medium Film/Cine Lens Gear for Cavision Follow Focus Systems:

Really pricy for this little wheel but it works. This is the wheel that comes with the Cavision Follow Focus well originally. If you lose this little piece will cost you and you will hate yourself. It is put in by pressure. I hammered my..

It is a solid follow focus system otherwise.

Comments about FGM08-34 Medium Film/Cine Lens Gear for Cavision Follow Focus Systems:

These gears work well. Good fit for the lens. But it is difficult to judge just how much torque to give the holding screw. Too loose and the gear slips. too much, and the gear will crack... Overall design flaw I suppose.

    Comments about FGM08-34 Medium Film/Cine Lens Gear for Cavision Follow Focus Systems:

    I bought this because i needed to change the fujinon .06 pitch gear to mate with my film .08 pitch gear.

    its solid, makes a great connection and operates smoothly.

    i am sure this happens with all ff but on rapid pulls you can hears the gears turning. its not over audible and i havent heard sound department complain yet.
