Can this be used with a Sony PXW-X70?

Yes, you can if you get a gear such as this one. Wide Open Camera Universal Lens Gear B&H # WILU Or you can get this other Opteka and avoid the gear altogether. Opteka CXS-800 Gearless Follow Focus System for DSLR Cameras B&H # OPCXS800

Is it possible to reverse the focus spin direction?
Asked by: Njord N.
This interesting device is, in what we see, not reversible in that way. The reversible ability appears be being able to put it on either side of the lens.

can i use this with HVX200A?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can use this with the HVX200A. You will need a lens gear. Do not worry, many are available. Here are two that will fit. The Cavision Focus Gear Ring CARFGR99 B&H # CARFGR99 is very compact and is very affordable. However, it is a special order. The Lanparte Gear Ring for Follow Focus B&H # LAFFGR01 is in stock, is good quality and can be used on a variety of lenses. It is a little bulky.
