DSLR Solutions last week announced a simple inexpensive DSLR follow focus – and planet5D had an exclusive first look at this new HDSLR follow focus unit. After the announcement, Aric sent us one to have a look and we've put together this video demonstration and review.
Pros and Cons!
- Light but strong – very well built
- Easy to use
- Very smooth action once you've mastered it
- Tin and packaging are very well done – fits easily in camera bag
- Manufactured in the USA
- One size fits many lenses
- takes a few tries to learn do focus pulls smoothly (but doesn't really take long)
- need different sizes for some larger lenses
- needs to be on firm tripod
- velcro focus points aren't firm enough to be hard stops – maybe having a couple of wider based pointers would make them sturdy
Blogger's Disclaimer: DSLR Solutions did send us a kit to review but asked for no special treatment.
