Movcam MOV-302-0203 overview

  • 1Description

The Movcam Mini Follow Focus MF-1 is a single-sided follow focus with a variable lock system and a base that slides to accommodate different lens constructions.

The MF-1 quickly and securely mounts 15mm rods via a tightening mechanism controlled by a silver underside knob. A standard flexi-ring comes included for lenses that don't have ring teeth.

The variable lock system allows start and end points to be set, and a focus scale helps in measuring distances. The gear drive is .08, and focus is achieved by constant damping that ensures precise focus.

    Movcam MOV-302-0203 reviews

    Mini Follow Focus MF-1 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid, Well Designed and Built...but I have used several different follow focus units, with most showing design flaws, poor craftmanship, or both. I researched this purchase as much as I could, though there is not a lot on line about it. The good news is that this follow focus is very sturdy, and the articulating arms allow nearly infinite mounting possibilities. The mechanism for attaching to the rods is great. No more need to remove the matte box to remove the FF. Yay! The dial is large and the mechanism very smooth. The gear can be placed on either side of the arm... so far so good.I wanted production stops in my next FF, and this has them for $200 over the basic unit. The problem? How do you set the darn things? In addition to myself, this issue has confused a grad school film teacher I consulted. I contacted Movcam, and heard back from Lucy that she would consult an engineer and get back to me with drawings. That was two weeks ago. This FF has several great design features, and, supposedly, production stops, but I have yet to figure out how to use them. Until I do, this gets 3 stars and a recommendation to look at the more basic unit. If I get some positive feedback from Movcam, I will update this post.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Sturdy, Cost-Efficent This is the mini follow focus I've been looking for. I've used Arri's MFF-2 Follow Focus and loved the fact you can move the follow focus up, down, side to side. Very few other follow focus systems provided that option until I found this product. Now when I change lenses, I don't have to wait around adjusting the gears or size of the gear rings. It's so much faster to use the MF-1!I have been extremely satisfied with the MF-1. Great buildWorth the investment especially since it's still 1,000 cheaper than it's competition.Heavy DutyProfessionalIn my opinion it competes with the Arri MFF-2 Follow Focus.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Review Very solid, so also very heavy, so not really suited to handheld work. On a tripod/ dolly, its fine, although I have had the whole assembly pop out on me... Lots of different positions possible, which is nice. On the whole not bad, but still haven't figured out how to set the hard stops. Can only set one hard stop, and even that is tricky and time consuming, maybe I'm missing something... Think I may end up going to Zacuto Z-Drive (which is lighter) and then I can add Tornado for one man band focus pulling... Then this will sit in a drawer...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy, well built I purchased this for my Canon C300 after having used less robust FF units that tended to lose focus and break under heavy use. This unit is great, but a little tricky to set the stops. After communicating with the company (which was pretty efficient), they sent a sheet that made everything clear. I have it if anyone needs it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Follow Focus Good build quality!I love the many different ways your can position it on the lens with the adjustment options.Very smooth dampened focus wheel. It wont spin or wiggle unless you turn it. Best i've ever owned!
    Date published: 2013-10-23
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from too large and heavy Its too large and heavy. You get what you pay for here, 1/2 the price as an arri and this is 1/2 as nice. The point of a LW 15mm setup is to be lightweight. this is not. It didnt fit my larger cinema lenses. I would save up and buy the arri instead, you will have it for a lifetime.
    Date published: 2017-11-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I need after a long search Nothing more frustrating than a soft focus and this equipment is what you need for critical focus and focus pulling. I use this F.F. with my Canon C100 and 3 Canon L series lenses. It is mounted on a gear by SHAPE which I also purchased from B&H
