ARRI FF5 Follow Focus Unit

With the ARRI Follow Focus FF5-HD, a completely modular, film style follow focus is now available for digital productions. Designed specifically for lenses with a smaller diameter focus barrel, the FF-5s longer swing arm ensures proper gear position on the focus ring and a lower gear ratio for a more exacting focus pull on smaller diameter lenses or those with compressed focus scales.

The FF5-HD integral snap-on mechanism locks to 15mm lightweight support rods and can be adapted to work with ARRI standard 15mm or 19mm bridge-plate support rods. ARRI Follow Focus drive gears can be attached to either side of the swing arm, allowing greater mounting flexibility.

ARRI gears are made from low friction Delrin for optimal drive smoothness and use precise self-centring stainless steel couplings to eliminate run-out and wear.

For more options, the FF-5HD is compatible with all ARRI FF-4 Follow Focus accessories. Right and left focus knobs and the FF-5s longer body allow operation from either camera side with ENG lenses.

In addition, an extension is available to clear the largest matte-boxes. Short and long focus whips allow the assistant to stand farther away from the camera and a focus crank makes fast snap zooms smooth and accurate.
