Best Follow Focus Gears I've used

A very simple product but does the job great! I bought a few of these for some of my different size lenses. The gear material is good quality. It's easy to cut precisely to the size you need. The little blocks that lock in the gears are awesome! I love that you don't have excess gear material hanging off the end and the Z-Drive teeth grab on to the gears very well.

ZipGear is a Must Have

Have to use this if you are using a follow focus while filming. The large teeth will catch the lens and help you focus smoothly. Costly, but put it on once and never worry about it again.

This zip gear was purchased for a Sony PMW-EX1 camera and works precisely as required. Easy to fit. What more is there to be said?

Low Profile & Functional

I purchased (4) ZipGear(s) for my Zeiss ZE lenses and Zacuto Z-Focus follow focus. I chose them over other competitors due to their low profile and engineering simplicity. My only gripe is the cost of these gear rings! They should be half their cost for such a simple product, IMO. Lastly, don't get hung up on the marketing hype surrounding HDSLR's and using follow focus. In most situations, it really isn't necessary, unless you have a dedicated AC working in tandem.

Not cheap, but it's the most compact solution I've seen.

is this for 1 lens?
Asked by: Resti B.
If you mean can this be used on more than one lens, the answer is yes. It is not permanently attached to a lens. If you mean is there enough material for more than one lens I'd say no.
