ikan FG Follow Focus

ikan has announced the FG Follow Focus ($449). It offers precision machined aluminum construction, light weight design, beveled dry erase marking disk, and is compatible with all ikan Elements kits and/or any 15mm rod-based camera support system.

Driven by a 2” diameter control wheel, the FG Follow Focus features low backlash and is compatible with standard film pitch gearing of .8 MOD supported by a 2.3” diameter focus gear. The horizontal adjustment feature accommodates a wide range of DSLR lens diameters and is complimented by a focus mark indicator and lockable focus control.

The included 17" FG Follow Focus Whip features vinyl covering and a crank stability grip for smooth control. Utilizing ikan’s compact square connector, the FG Whip provides leverage over distance and smoother focus pulls all around. Also in the box is a pair of 2.5” to 4.25” diameter adjustable zip lens gears. Complete with two no scuff, non-slip lens gear liners; your DSLR lens is protected and ready to pull focus.
