CAME-TV FF-01 Reviews

Nice FFfor the price

I've been happy with this follow focus. One issue I have had is that the set screws for the stops easily fall out and get lost. I ordered a four-pack of Dubro Socket Cap Screws 2.5mmx10 from a hobby store, and these work great as replacements and only cost a few dollars.

A great follow-focus

Sure, there are other FF systems that don't cost as much, but this unit is very well made and offers smooth rotation w/ hard stops. As soon as you hold it in your hands, you immediately notice the excellent built quality. There's a knob that will allow you to adjust the pitch off the rails, and I like the it has a pivoting arm. I purchased this along with the CAME-TV Cage Rig for use with my GH4. Now that I have a Ronin M, not sure if I can find a way to make it work, but may have to look at wireless/wired FF option.

Takes a little time to get the mechanics right.

Once you take the time to learn how to adjust it, this follow focus is terrific. It's sturdy, stays in focus, it's very flexible, adjusts to any lens, and the stops are great. Just shot two days with it and one of the best features is being able to change lenses quickly and easily. Overall I'm happy I saw this product demo on YT and glad I bought it. Worth the money!

nice unit but fell apart

Bought this for use on a film and halfway through a little sticker on the end of the tightening knob fell off revealing that was the only thing holding the knob to the screw so now to tighten and loosen it it requires an allen key. Not particularly user friendly anymore. This unit is otherwise nice, though there is about 1 cm of play in the knob which I am just working around.

Good for the price

I've used many follow focus systems from high end to the cheapest of the cheap. The construction of this product is great, high quality material. However, the two pivot lock system is a major con for me. When you reach min/max focus on a hard stop lens, it usually will loosen the lock and the focus gear will go out of place. This happens to me on a high intensity run and gun situation. For normal usage this unit is fine, I just think it could have been improved by not having a pivot lock to get lenses in gear.

Very pleased with the FF-01

We used the FF-01 on our first shoot last week, and it worked great. No complaints at all. We used it with a set of Rokinon lenses. The construction is great, and is extremely solid -- no play in anything. The stops worked great as well.

Hi, I lost one of the hardstop thumbscrews ... how do I go about getting a replacement thumbscrew?
Asked by: ruben r.
I had the same issue. I ordered some Dubro Socket Cap Screws 2.5mmx10 (package of 4); these work quite well as replacements. One of those also fell out and got lost - I'm glad I ordered two packages of four so I have plenty of backups!
