Simon Skinner - 3 years ago

Sevenoak, the filmmaking brand distributed into the UK via Kenro Ltd, has announced three new essential products for enthusiast and serious/pro filmmakers: two pro-level follow focus systems and a ‘universal’ camera cage compatible with most DSLRs

The two new follow focus systems are built from lightweight anodised aluminium and are compatible with a whole host of lenses, mounted on camcorders and DSLR cameras.

They operate with all 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. They can be used either side of the lens, so you can decide which best suits your rig.

A removable magnetic marking disc is also included in the pack and both models SKFX1 [0.36kg] and SKFX2 [0.57kg] measure 23.5 x 14cm.
