Redrock Micro 16-066-1103 overview

  • 1Description

The Redrock Micro microFollowFocus Video Camera Bundle features as its core components a complete and very well-built follow focus system and a beautiful and rock-solid baseplate that's adjustable in all the right places and that will let you mount the follow focus, a camera and a matte box all for use at the same time. The follow focus's gear ring has 0.8 teeth and is thus readily compatible with any cine lenses, since cine lenses natively have matching 0.8 teeth; (and separately-sold Redrock microLensGears can be employed to accommodate still lenses). Two 9" 15mm rods come included for use with the baseplate and can at anytime be replaced by longer or shorter ones you may have, each type creating different opportunities for your rig. The remaining components of the bundle are a white marking disk, which cleans easily at the wipe of a cloth, and a grease pencil for marking focus stops on the disk. (A focus indicator cutout on the focusing wheel at all times very clearly shows where you are focused.)

The follow focus system -- the microFollowFocus -- is the "little brother" of the microFollowFocus | Blue. It tightens by thumbscrew onto a pair of 15mm rods and can be used with 19mm rods per the separately-sold addition of a microOmniMount accessory. Once the follow focus is on the rods, and a lens is mounted onto the camera that's on those rods, the focusing unit of the follow focus slides left or right to adjust to the diameter of the lens; and as different diameters are supported, so are different lengths -- the follow focus's gearbox flips to the front or to the rear to support long and short lenses by lining up with their focusing rings. The gearbox is additionally adjustable to reduce backlash to minimal/zero in order to achieve backlash-free focus pulls, meaning that the teeth of the gear ring will meet the teeth of the lens in a fit such that will leave no space, no looseness, between them, achieving hence precise fluidity -- the whole purpose of a follow focus.

microFollowFocus is made of precision-machined aircraft grade aluminum, its drive gear of hardened composite with a metal insert in it, and its focusing wheel featuring a rubberized handgrip. A standard accessory port is available on the side of the focusing wheel for the attachment of a speed crank or a focus whip (items that let an assistant pull focus from about a foot or more away).

The baseplate, called the microSupport Baseplate, very importantly comes with a universal camera plate. Featuring both 1/4" and 3/8" screws, the camera plate can be attached to most any camera so that thereafter the camera can be quick-release mounted or dismounted to and from the baseplate. Two additional very important features of the baseplate: one -- the camera block, onto which the camera plate mounts, is left-right adjustable to achieve center of gravity with different camera shapes/builds; and two -- the rod clamp, where the rods attach into, is height adjustable by inserting under it separately-sold Redrock shims. And again, as way-abovementioned, the included rods are removable and can be replaced with longer or shorter ones for different rig configurations. The 9" rods will certainly support the follow focus and a matte box, but you're free to get creative and find room on it for other accessories.
