The two follow focus systems are constructed from lightweight anodised aluminium and are compatible with a wide range of lenses mounted on DSLR cameras and camcorders.
They work with standard 15mm rod support systems, have an adjustable height (flippable) gear drive and include three different sizes of lens gear rings: 66-77mm, 77-88mm and 88-99mm.
These systems can be used either side of the lens, so the operator can decide which best suits their own rig and camera equipment. A removable magnetic marking disc is also included.
Both models SKFX1 (0.36kg) and SKFX2 (0.57kg) measure 23.5 x 14cm. The SKFX2 features a quick release plate and A/B hard stops for precision focusing, as well as an adjustable locking system. The SKFX1 is designed to attach to a single 15mm rod support, whereas the SKFX2 attaches to dual 15mm rod supports.
SRP of the SKFX1 is £176.94 including VAT and the SKFX2 is £219.96 including VAT.
The perfect companion to these follow focus systems is Sevenoak’s new universal camera cage SKC03.
This beautifully made, aluminium cage holds most DSLRs and camcorders up to 20kg in weight. It provides full access to all camera functions, buttons, batteries, etc, and provides stability and protection while adding mounting options.
The camera cage features built-in cold shoes, a removable top handgrip, mini HDMI to HDMI adapter cable, HDMI plug protector, quick release base plate, 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch mounting points. Plus, a pair of 15mm standard rods are clamped to the base - ideal for mounting a follow focus system.
SRP is £129.96 including VAT.
Says Paul Kench, Kenro's managing director: ''It’s very hard to achieve smooth focusing without the use of a good quality follow-focus device and Sevenoak have thought very carefully in the production of these units.''
''They are easy to set up and provide the user with smooth fluid movements for follow focus effects any movie producer would be proud of. The gearbox has a left or right function to enable the wheel to run the focus in either direction and the quick release system on the FX2 means that it can be quickly snapped onto the rods without moving any other components.
''Those who get seriously into DSLR video work soon realise that a decent camera cage is one of the first must-have accessories. This new model from Sevenoak is not only built to last, but is extremely functional and very competitively priced. Its universal fit makes it perfect for videographers with multiple DSLRs or camcorders.
''This cage joins three other Sevenoak-made cages that are dedicated fits for Blackmagic, Sony and Panasonic cameras.''
