“We’re excited to introduce our follow focus as we continue to build out our range of video accessories,” said Paul Zakrzewski, Director of Marketing for Manfrotto Distribution, Inc. “From our line of protective bags and cases, to our renowned tripods and heads, and now the follow focus, we’re giving videographers the ability to build a complete system around their gear, no matter if it’s an HDSLR or higher-end cinema camera.”The follow focus contains a 35mm friction wheel and a 50 tooth drive gear to accommodate lenses with and without gear rings. A marking disc is also included, which easily clicks into place when properly aligned on the handwheel. This lets the operator mark focal reference points. Manfrotto’s follow focus also has a slide switch, allowing the operator to create hard stops.
The follow focus slides onto standard 15mm rods so that it can be paired with rigs such as the Manfrotto Sympla 2.0 and can be mounted on either side of the lens for left- or right-handed use.
The MVA511FF is available now for $599.99.
