    Follow Focus Gear and Lever Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Even though it's simply a lever, the build quality is so strong, it gives you the potential expandability to use other Cinevate Follow Focus products later down the track, I'd love to have one of all my lenses for my DSLR videography. You can really feel the difference in control using the lever vs using two fingers to manual focus, it takes a bit of practice buts smoother, cleaner and more continuous.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cinevate focus gear and lever kit Mmmmm! I can't talk about using these on any lenses other than Nikon, as that's all I have - but I do have quite a bunch of 'em... When I first wanted to put together a DSLR rig, I first selected Cinevate and bought a kit from B&H. However, before it had been delivered, I decided that the Genus Tech equivalent would better suit me - so I ordered such a kit and returned the Cinevate unopened. Thanks B&H! Part of the decision was the clumsiness of the Cinevate rings and the manner in which they are attached to lenses. They are very bulky and, in reality, one is needed for every lens that might be used on the rig. When these are fitted, storing the lenses takes a LOT bigger diameter compartment in the bag!!! FWIW, I have been VERY pleased with my Genus Tech-based rig - and now have an extensive selection of components. The Genus Tech geared follow focus works well, but is too wide for two to be used on a single lens (focus and zoom). I wanted a lever arrangement for use on the zoom controls of my Nikkors but found that there is very little available other than the standard Cinevate rings with one of the fixing screw spokes traded for a lever. That's what this product is. Well, there are two problems. Losing one of the six fixing screws means the ring does not fit very well and there is a major tradeoff with the tightness (actually, they have to be pretty slack) of the screws on the lens ring. In the case of Nikkors, when used on the focus rings, the screws have to be tightened extremely carefully as pressure on the lens focus rings makes them bind. This also happens with the Genus Tech flexible toothed strips, but as they make contact with the lens rings almost all the way round, they hold in place quite well and allow smooth rotation of the focus rings. Not so with the Cinevate! I would personally NOT use this Cinevate lever for focus on Nikon lenses. OK, so how well does it work for zoom control? Basically, no differently to how it works (barely) for focus - for the same reasons. The only obvious difference is that the zoom rings on the lenses do not bind quite as badly as the focus rings. Bottom line: Clumsy. Do not fit well on Nikkors. Impractical to have one on every lens. Don't work very well even when fitted VERY carefully. But there's very little available as an alternative! I have evaluated the Cinevate Focus Gear and Lever mostly using 24-120/2.8, 24-70/2.8 and 28-300 Nikkors, as these are the lenses that I use predominantly for video. Footnote: The Cinevate toothed rings are completely compatible with the Genus Tech follow-focus gear.
