The SmallRig Follow Focus F60 3850 is an video accessory that lets you take fine control over manual focus while filming. The unit has been designed to be modular, so you can update the system to suit your camera and lens setup.
If you haven’t come across follow focus before, essentially, it’s an accessory used in video production and photography that attaches to a camera and enables you to smoothly and accurately adjust the lens’s focus while filming or shooting.
The F60 3850 consists of a gear wheel connected to the lens focus ring, either by friction or a gear strap, and a knob or handles that you turn to adjust the focus. Follow focus systems are especially useful for professional videographers or photographers who need to create smooth and precise focus pulls or transitions during filming or shooting.
The SmallRig Follow Focus F60 3850 is designed to fit onto standard 15mm rods, which are standard for most Mirrorless and DSLR rigs and were part of the SmallRig rig I looked at back in January , making it easy to set up and adjust to your camera system. The build quality of the SmallRig Follow Focus F60 3850 is exceptional, with a solid construction that ensures it will stand up to the demands of professional use.
One of the standout features of the SmallRig Follow Focus F60 3850 is the sheer number of adjustments that are available to you, ensuring it not only fits that camera system snuggly but also feels comfortable for you to use. For instance, there are multiple options for the wheel’s position and the ability to adjust the friction control and the lens gear; this follows focus is incredibly versatile. It can be easily adapted to your specific shooting requirements.
