Opteka FF240 Overview

The FF-240 Gearless Follow Focus Rig with 15mm Rod Kit for DSLR Cameras from Opteka is a compact DSLR rig bundled with gearless follow focus. It is constructed from aluminum and ABS material and is designed to work with all DSLR cameras and prosumer camcorders. The bundled follow focus is adjustable for virtually any lens and has a gearless feature to minimize bulk and add a sleek look. A quick-release plate lets you easily switch the camera between tripod and handheld use.

The gearless design utilizes a special rubber ring to securely grasp the focus rings on a lens. This facilitates fast lens changes, eases operation, and allows for a more affordable follow focus. The focus knob is tilted towards the user allowing for single user operation. Designed to have only a single, direct point of contact, this eliminates play (deflection) found in geared systems. The focus knob can be adjusted horizontally to accept a wide range of lens sizes.

question

Would I be able to use this follow focus with a matte box on my rig? It looks like there's no space to mount a matte box and still be able to use the follow focus.
Asked by: Noam
The answer depends on what is your rig, your camera, your lens and your matte box. Outside of that, I would say that you can extend the rods provided to accommodate most camera/lens/matteboxes available for this level of rig.

question

Does the follow focus ring adjust up and down or just in and out?
Asked by: Ramiro L.
While you can move it closer/farther from the lens and closer/farther from the camera, you cannot move it up and down. The unit is nicely made and so far not being able to move it up/down has not proven to be a detriment.
