Focus Gears Ipod: Friendly Encode
Cinevate is pleased to announce our new focus ring design. The original design has been completely re-worked after 3 years of field feedback and use of our focus gears with ENG lenses, still lenses etc. These rings allow the use of our DURUS Follow Focus unit with virtually every lens and camera combination on the planet, and carry a lifetime warranty!
Changes from our older design other than the drastic reduction in cost (we've made a very large quantity), are as follows.
1. They offer over twice the lens travel distance of the current design.
Please note that spokes are not included and need to be ordered separately; please use the basic chart below for your reference.
2. The gears are fiber-reinforced composite and use brass thread inserts.
3. Our "spokes" (stainless steel) now feature custom integrated nylon tips. Please note: spokes have to be ordered separately, using the chart below.
4. Enlarged inner diameter for easier use with ENG lenses, larger cine lenses and video camera stock lenses. They now fit the Fujinon lenses used with the HPX500, LOMO cine lenses and anything else we could dig up to test them on. They're shown here on the 24-70 Canon f2.8D lens.
5. About 50% lighter with a 40% reduction in profile.
6. Because they are matched (we're talking gear thrust surfaces) precisely with our FF drive gears, they have what I'd call perfect engagement that is silent, with lash near zero measurable. What this means is super smooth, self-lubricating and silent performance that we would be completely comfortable holding up against much more expensive systems
7. Installation is now much, much quicker. About 2 minutes per lens.
8. We don't and never will use zip gears. Flexible gears cannot guarantee consistent tooth profiles (tooth distance at tip varies as you flex them), nor can they ever handle full 360 degree rotation. They're cheap and can be made in one mold (very cheap to make) however we pretty much rejected the concept from day one.
