Axler FF-PRO2S-QR overview

  • 1Description

Featuring solid metal construction and minimal gearbox play, the Axler Hammerhead Pro Follow Focus earns the "Pro" moniker. The knurled hand wheel rotates smoothly and has built-in hard stops for repeatable focus pulls. Alternatively, release the hard stops and mark your focus points on the marking disk for visual aid, visible from the operator and assistant positions. Camera assistants will also appreciate the presence of an ARRI standard accessory port for whips, cranks, and other focusing accessories

A 0.8 MOD drive gear is included for meshing with standard cinema lens gearing, or with the included lens gear which can be installed on DSLR or mirrorless camera lenses that don't already have gearing. With the quick release mechanism, the Hammerhead Pro can be easily installed on rigs that employ 15mm LWS rods without disrupting other mounted accessories, such as matte boxes or lens supports. This saves valuable time on set.

Smooth Focus Adjustment
The large knurled hand wheel on the Hammerhead Pro provides a sure grip and smooth focusing action. A small thumbscrew at the base of the gearbox can be tightened or loosened to adjust gearbox stiffness.
Adjustable Hard Stops
Easily repeat focus moves by setting the end stops of the focus move on the hand wheel itself. Release the stops to regain full rotation of the hand wheel, or to just reset them for your next shot.
Accommodates Multiple Lens Diameters
Release the bottom thumbscrew while the Hammerhead Pro is locked down on the rods to slide the hand wheel and gearbox to mesh with your lens. The sliding range can accommodate lenses ranging in 30-120mm in diameter.
Switchable Drive Gear
With shorter lenses, connecting the follow focus can be difficult if the lens gear is fixed. The Hammerhead Pro features a side-switchable drive gear, meaning the drive gear can be mounted on the side closer to the camera for working with short lenses commonly found on mirrorless cameras.
Accessory Port
At the center of the hand wheel is an ARRI standard accessory port for whips, cranks, and other accessories, either for the camera operator or an assistant.

    Axler FF-PRO2S-QR reviews

    Hammerhead Pro Follow Focus is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made The Axler Hammerhead Follow Focus is a solid, well made, reasonably priced focus assisting tool. I purchased three of them and so far they have worked well for me with my Panasonic GH5 cameras and Rokinon cine lenses. They feel much more professionally made as compared to some of the more expensive follow focus wheels whose company names I will not mention just to be fair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on my shoulder mount It's been amazing using this follow focus system on my shoulder rig. Fitting it on the rods and adjusting the positioning are super simple and the system itself doesn't add much weight which is great. The adjustable hard stops and marking disc are nice for more cinematic stuff. Adding this to my gear arsenal has been a blessing. I use this almost every time I shoot now.
