DP 500 II S Follow Focus
Every detail of this follow focus has been considered during the design process to create the best follow focus on the market. Compact enough for matte boxes and packed with smart features makes the Follow Focus a filmmakers dream. CNC machined from high grade aluminum. Solid, smooth, compact, and smart.
2 Levels of adjustable dampening for fluid movement and very little backlash. Virtually Zero (<0.5mm).
Dual Rail Quick Release/Lock
The 15mm Dual Rail Quick Release and Lock provides a better foundation for follow focus units compared to single rail clamp systems which tend to slip and move. The double rail spring-loaded system provides ample amount of resistance against the lens gear for even tension. The best part about the Quick Release feature is that you don’t’ have to take apart your rig in order to adjust or remove the follow focus. Simply release, lock, and go.
The ultra compact design allows you to use the Follow Focus with just about any matte box. Most bulky follow focuses tend to get in the way due to either large gear boxes, clamps or dials.
A/B Hard Stops
The fully adjustable and locking A/B hard stops allow you to quickly mark your points without distracting you from the scene. The A/B hard stops give you the freedom to move from focus to focus. When used with the magnetic marking disk it can save you tons of time while setting up shots.
Magnetic Marking Disk
The dry-erase polyurethane marking disk is fastened by super strong magnets, and also locks in place so it does not move around. You’ll know where your focus points are every time.
360º Adjustable Marking Pin
The marking pin is can be rotated and locked 360º around the center wheel. This allows you to be able to precisely mark your in and out points whether your looking down on the unit or from behind the camera.
The Follow Focus allows you to adjust the space on the X-Axis from the lens gear giving you the freedom to use wider or narrower lenses.
Easy Gear Reversal
Both left and right handed users can easily reverse sides by unscrewing the gear knob, and simply putting both the gear and knob on the other side. Voila, done. No tools necessary.
Standard .08 Lens Gear
The Follow Focus includes a flexible gear belt that can be used with any zoom or prime lenses with a wide range of lens diameters (46mm to 110mm)
