The Revolvr Atom Cine Kit from Bright Tangerine is a small-sized follow focus unit for mounting on 15mm LWS support rods. The Atom is a single-sided focus bridge that accepts standard and mini handwheels. Single-sided focus units are often, but not exclusively, used for handheld work or on locations where spaces are tight.
The handwheel and bridge both accept standard accessories, and using an optional Bright Tangerine 4D crank or focus whip provides for a play-free coupling. Included with the kit is a swing arm with an internal drive ratio of 1:1.842, and it also features a drive belt tension adjustment to eliminate play. The kit comes with two 0.8 Mod cine-style gears, and a total of two removable marking discs are included.
Bright Tangerine Revolvr Atom 15mm Lightweight Core Bridge
The Bright Tangerine Revolvr Atom 15mm Lightweight Core Bridge is the very heart of a precision-made, smoothly operating follow focus unit. It requires the addition of a swing arm, focus drive gear, and follow focus handwheel or crank to create a functional follow focus unit. The Revolvr Atom 15mm Lightweight Core Bridge is a small unit that accepts a single handwheel. It is suitable for use during handheld operation or in tight spaces where space is at a premium.
The core accepts both Bright Tangerine swing arms, and features a gearbox that provides a backlash-free experience with virtually no play. The snap-on clamps mount the Lightweight Core Bridge on 15mm LWS support rods. Custom rod adapters by Bright Tangerine allow you to mount the core on 15 or 19mm studio rods (rod adapters not included).
Bright Tangerine Revolvr Focus Handwheel
Designed to work seamlessly with your Bright Tangerine Revolvr or Revolvr Atom focus unit, the Revolvr Focus Handwheel provides a raised gripping surface for a secure grip. Featuring a ribbed surface with a built-in keyway depression that allows you to find your place on the handwheel without having to take your eyes off the action. You can mount the handwheel on either side of you focus unit, so you can pull focus from either side of the lens just by switching it to the other side.
The handwheel also includes a removable Delrin marking disc, and it features an industry-standard accessory socket for optional whips and cranks. With an optional pack of two removable soft/hard stops, you can mount and adjust the position of either stop on the handwheel. Each stop features an index line, so you can set multiple focus points on your handwheel. Pressing the plunger activates the hard stops, which can be set to provide limits to lens rotation when working with endlessly rotating lenses. With the plunger released, the hard stops become soft stops, allowing you to use your fingers to stop the rotation of your focus wheel.
Removable Marking Disc
- The disc is interchangeable and can be used on any industry-standard handwheel.
- The detent will prevent the disc from rotating on a handwheel with a matching locating pin. This guarantees your marks remain accurate.
- You can pre-mark discs to match specific lenses for rapid lens changes and focus resets; additional discs must be purchased separately.
Optional Soft/Hard Stops
- The stops feature an inscribed white index mark for lining up the marks on your disc.
- Using soft stops allows you to set your focus positions, and then you can grasp your focus handwheel with your fingers on the edge of the disc, allowing you to pull focus while looking at the subject and not the lens, as your fingers will feel the stops. This is a popular technique, as it allows the focus puller to have a sense of where the ends of their pull is, without having to look away from the action to check the lens or handwheel. Because it is a soft stop, the focus puller can also go beyond the stop simply by moving their fingers away.
- Engaging the hard stop functionality allows you to set limits for rotation of your lens. This can be useful when pulling focus on lenses that rotate endlessly.
Optional Torch Holster
