Follow-focus units have been around for a long time. Over the last few years, we’ve seen many of them pop up from quite a few companies. Particularly manual follow-focus units. You’d think that by now, it’d be pretty difficult to innovate and do something a little different, right? Well, SmallRig’s taken up that gauntlet and run with it for the new Small F60 (buy here) modular follow-focus unit. And despite the buzz over last year’s SmallRig MagicFiz, this one’s all manual.
What makes the new one so special then? Well, it dispenses with the lens gears. Sort of. It does come with a gear for those using cinema lenses, but it also includes a friction wheel for those who want to use photography lenses without the hassle of fitting gears each time. We spoke with David Zhuo on the SmallRig stand at NAB 2023 to learn more.
