Wooden Camera UFF-1 Overview

Wooden Camera's UFF-1 Universal Follow Focus is designed to fit on any of the three major rod standards, 15mm LWS, 15mm studio, and 19mm studio without rod adapters. The UFF-1 achieves this through movable rod clamps that lock into marked positions along the follow focus' bridge. The swinging arm allows lenses of multiple sizes to be used, and provides extra reach for using with the studio rod standards. Drive gears can be mounted to either side of the arm, and the arm itself can be mounted to either side of the gear drive.

The pro version of the UFF-1 includes a bevy of accessories that can have an AC or operator pulling focus in nearly any situation. Dual handwheels allow for focus pulls from either side of the camera. Ten marking disks are included, so you'll always have a fresh one ready. For DSLR lenses, or pulling focus while operating the camera, two hard-stop disks are included as well. These disks have two movable hard stops for setting focus marks. Using the included handwheel extension, you can extend one of the handwheels further away from the camera to accommodate for larger lenses. Using the ARRI-standard accessory ports on either handwheel, the included focus whip or crank can be attached. The crank has a pass-through accessory port, so both accessories can be attached simultaneously to the same handwheel.

Five focus drive gears are included. 0.5 and 0.6 MOD gears for driving Canon and Fujinon ENG lenses, respectively, as well as small and large-diameter 0.8 MOD gears for driving standard cinema lenses. For DSLR lenses that are not geared, a friction gear is included. The UFF-1 and all included accessories come packaged inside custom-cut foam that can fit in a separately available Pelican 1500 hard case, for protection during storage and transport.

Wooden Camera UFF-1 Reviews

Solid build, nice design, too much play in multiple units

By Andrew
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2020-10-23

I bought three of these units and all of them have quite a bit of play on them. One is to the point of being unusable in production as the focus marks end up out of place. The problem resides in a loose connection inside of the focus wheel itself. I am waiting for follow up from the company. They released a video on how to minimize the play, however the core issue is in the manufacturing of the focus wheel. Some seem better than others, but it makes me pretty suspicious of the QC standards of wooden camera.

Solid follow. Altough with Backlashing

I have been using this follow focus for 2 months. Very nice, solid. Works in all rods. I am disappointed with the backlash. It has a little bit of backlashing. I send and email to wooden camera, and they send me a tutorial to get less backlash. Altough it didnt change nothing. I was seing this follow and the Bright tangerine. I think i will have to try the bright tangerine to compare it. I just hope it didn’t have this backlashing problem its a great follow focus only with this problem.

works almost 100% as expected.

this is a good solid follow Focus. Very similar to the Tilta. only issue I have with it is that when using it on 15mm rods, the clamps are almost fully extended when tightening. So if you have any force or vibration on the camera the follow Focus will loosen and move. There just isn't enough purchase on the clamps on 15 mil rods. 19 mm, works great.

Returned it

I had this and it had 2 much slop and play. It is solidly built but I had to return it because of the play it had. I got a bright Tangerine revolvr atom and really like it over this.

Overall good

This is an overall great bit of kit. It is solidly made, and comes well-packaged - having everything you need at a good price point. We have been struggling with a little bit of breathing when using it with Cooke 5/i lenses. There seems to be a tiny bit of play in the follow focus, though not enough to be seriously concerning. Overall a great product.
