    ELE-FGK Follow Focus Cine-Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not great, kit Incredibly solidly built unit. Works like a charm. Only real downside is that the lens gear is a lot bigger than most follow focuses I've seen, so it makes using this on DSLR autofocus lenses a pretty twitchy affair. With a smaller gear, this would be perfect - as it is, I'm knocking a star off, since this is a lower-price unit, and that gear choice makes it a little less practical for the DSLR usage most people in this price range would be using. I will be trying to source a smaller gear - I really like this unit outside of that one (easily fixed) problem. It will come in handy when dealing with proper cine lenses, though...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Entry Level Follow Focus Solidily built FF. Great accessories for this price. Couple issues: -minimum of backlash, maybe a few millimeters (a plus at this price, BUT with 5D MKII's razor thin depth of field on some settings, that is enough to be out of focus) -the focus reference mark (thin metal piece that curves to top of wheel for marking reference) is very thin metal. Also not movable. Which limits where you can pull focus from, and how the FF is positioned -gear is not easy to mount on opposite side of FF. Recommended as a good value buy, but with reservations about it's usefullness as a DSLR rig, and in other complex camera rigs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Like A Charm Needed a Follow Focus System that works with my Ikan Superfly EV2 Handheld Rig. This Follow Focus Kit works perfectly, and I have 0 issues with it so far. Saved me a lot of struggle with focusing on a major project. For the price, definitely worth the investment!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Kit thou Overall it is a great and inexpensive Kit. I don't know if its regular that you can hear the grease inside smucking, while Pulling the wheel? And the wheel is not turning like a Skateboard wheel, witch is kind a good, in my opinion. That the items inside the Box where oversewed with little white PVC sawdust was kind of frustrating, but I could solve that problem by using a whole can of Spray Duster. The Crank is Tiny, the whip is Superb. The Lens Zip gears are okay for the start, not the best on the Market, but the concept is great, just a bit to bulky. For the Canon 50mm 1.8 Lens just the right Zip gear System.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value i had been looking for a follow focus kit for some time. I had heard good things about the Ikan kit, and I'm glad that I purchased it. It is really well made and solid feeling when attached to the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Follow Focus, Does the job Using on a rig I made for my A7S ii. Works as advertised. A bit expensive for what you get but hey, its professional camera equipment. What can you expect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it Very simple but perfectly made piece of art. I definitely lacks the hard stops, but for me it't not that crucial.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pro Feel The system feels solid and doesn't leave much room for problems. The gearing is tight and sealed. The adjustments are few and easy. I'm really happy with this pro-feeling piece of gear. One of the attachments is ridiculously short though, just over an inch. There is an issue for shorter lenses like I use with my Panasonic GH2 DSLR. The unit can only get so close to the camera and shorter lenses may require the gear closer than is possible. Having a slimmer base or an offset gear would help. Instead, you mount the FF on the rods backwards and get almost up to the camera. The downside of this is that now the same chunk of material keeping you from the camera is on the outside keeping the mattebox away. For my lenses, this can be just a quarter inch but it is still an issue that has to be addressed. Smaller lenses like the micro 4/3rd's manual Voitglanders may need to have up to an inch of gear around them to reach the FF though depending on your setup.
