Sachtler S2153-0001 overview

  • 1Description

The Sachtler Ace Follow Focus is a backlash-free follow focus that's adjustable to support photo and video lenses of different makes and sizes. It features both a 0.8 Mod drive gear and a 35mm diameter friction wheel to accommodate lenses with and without gear rings. The drive gear and friction wheel are positioned on opposite sides of each other and can be swapped as necessary using an included Allen key. The direction of the gear mechanism is also reversible to support lenses with clockwise- and counterclockwise-moving focus rings.

The Ace Follow Focus features a 15mm rod clamp and can be mounted on either side of the lens. The follow focus bridge is adjustable horizontally so you can adjust to different size lenses. Two interchangeable marking discs are included that simply click into place when properly aligned on the handwheel, and they can easily be removed and replaced. Hard stops can be set using an easy to use hard stop slider button, especially useful for some modern photo lenses. The handwheel features a socket for an industry standard focus whip.

    Sachtler S2153-0001 reviews

    Ace Follow Focus is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice overall, has a rattle I use this in combination with other Sachtler Ace accessories like the Matte Box and Baseplate, and with a Panasonic GH4 with prime lenses. The unit is very nice overall, and if everything is properly positioned and clamped down provides essentially no play for focusing, which is its main purpose. One issue is that the Follow Focus is relatively fat sometimes making it hard to position everything properly (camera, follow focus and matte box). It sort of helps that the follow focus allows you to mount the gear on either side, but the inactive-side also sometimes gets in the way. It seems many follow focus units have this type of issue, however. THe main issue I became aware of after using this product for awhile is that there is a rattle in the rings associated with the stops. This rattle is not as bad as the one I reported for the Matte Box filter holder release buttons, but it is nevertheless relatively significant, and the reason I do not rate the unit higher. The Follow Focus rattle is not as bad, and under most circumstances it does not interfere with filming, however I constantly have to be aware of it possibly intruding on the audio track.
