* FocusONE comes with 1 x edelkrone Lens Gear
Just the price ... I shop it for school. Otherwise it's excellent man. Exactly how to be.
Solid...bulky focus pull
most affordable follow focus units are kind of awful but this little guy is pretty darn solid!
I still can't believe people don't talk about this. It's beautiful and, by itself, works like a wonder. Unfortunately when paired with my lenses, Meike cine lenses, the 0.8 standard pitch gears match each other with a slight play. It's no trouble when focusing, since the play is very subtle, but the sound it makes is not as subtle. I care for silence when shooting. I hoped this would achieve quietness, but it sounds like a loud zipper. It's probably a tolerance issue.
Whilst I really liked the concept and the overall weight / build of the Focus One, sadly it doesn’t produce nearly enough torque. When used in conjunction with larger cine lenses there is excessive vibration and judder. Ideally better suited to small 4/3 and 35mm DSLR lenses.
FocusOne is extremely well made. I have tried several "focus-zoom controllers" and this one is the smoothest perfectly balanced one of all. Highly recommended!!
This tool is a must have. It makes sense, given their line of products that Edelkrone would make it so you could pull your own focus. Just perfect!
I haven't had a chance to use the FocusOne rig yet but I am positive that it will be seriously good when I do.
In the over all I am impressed with quality and functionality. Just as I expected.
Very precise, easy to use. Works well with "hard ring" lenses also. Excellent materials. Great construction. Just wich it had hard stops for continuous rotating rings.
This follow focus system turned out more useful than initially expected. As a single operator and shooting a lot of handheld, this device really improved my focusing precision. I move my camera to me ‘end’-position and set the focus mark there. Then I move my camera to ‘start’-position and focus on my subject. Now I can rather precisely move in and out while keeping the mark in view to roughly guesstimate my focus plane. Combined with checking the focus on the screen this really helps me focus better than simply turning the lens. Great product for a reasonable price.
I've had a FocusONE for some time, and found it to be the right follow-focus for tucking in right under my wood cage grip, for being able to adjust focus even while handholding. I was using another follow-focus on the other side, under the other wood grip, to make it easier to find the aperture ring on my Rokinon Digital Cine lenses, but I finally had to admit that the fit was awkward. The price for the FocusONE is so good for how well-made it is that I got a second one, installed it on the aperture side in three or four seconds, and my only question now is WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG?
The one arm connector is great when you’re working on location and switch between photography and film. Using the Pocketrig in combination with Focus one, takes a few minutes to use my hybrid camera as a professional film tool. The size, functionality and build quality combined makes this a pocket devil. I'm not leaving home without it in the morning. The big turn knob makes it super easy to hit the exact focal points. Changing lenses is a breeze. Just one screw and swap the lens. Our image output quality has actually improved. And there's less time for the crew to stand around and wait which means more footage to work with and an energised team. Thanks so much, Edelkrone!
Excellent fine focus!
luv it .,,,
This has good build quality and function, but the fact that you have to measure, cut and attach a plastic strip with teeth to each of your lenses to match the teeth of the FocusONE is sort of a pain. I had to order a separate pack of 3 plastic strips ($45!, which is ridiculous--it's just a cheap little strip of plastic) because they recommend making a custom strip for each lens (which you do have to do to make each one fit). There should be a number of these strips included with the price, because it doesn't work without them.
