OConnor Introduces Cine Follow Focus CFF-1
Jim Elias and Eric Johnston are now at OConnor, and introduce the first product off their assembly line: the Cine Follow Focus CFF-1. What’s different or special about it?
1. It attaches to 15mm or 19mm studio rod systems.
2. It has the lowest clearance of any double-sided studio unit, so it works with large diameter lenses such as the Angenieux 24-290mm, Red 18-85mm, Fujinon 18-85mm, Fujinon 75-400mm, and almost any other fat lens.
3. Works with existing popular accessories such as whips, gears, and cranks.
4. Mounts to either side of the lens, and slides horizontally to adjust the focus drive gear for a clear line of sight.
List price for the OConnor Cine Follow Focus starts at $4,500. A variety of options – such as a wooden handle – will be available. Nice idea. Scheduled for April 2010 delivery.
