    Hello Everyone,

    This is our latest Frankenstein creation…and it’s ALIVE!

    We just wanted to do some due diligence before we commit to making it a “real” product.

    These are ARRI standard size flat marking disks that are compatible with the OConnor CFF-1 and obviously a number of other follow focus handwheels in existence.

    Should we make them a product?

    Technical details to follow if there is enough interest…

    Awesome idea, Eric.

    Any chance to see an angled glow disc for the Arriflex MFF-1?

    Thanks Lewis-

    We weren’t the first to come up with the idea…it is just cost prohibitive to create the injection molding tool needed to make them; but since we have it already for the CFF-1 marking disk’s we figured hey let’s give it a shot!

    Nope-

    That’s a totally different size disk…maybe time to upgrade to a mini double sided unit with a full size knob?

    Perhaps the OConnor booth at NAB may have something to your liking.

    Great Jeff…

    We’re thinking $30.00 List (our regular white disks sell for $24.00 list each currently in packs of 10) and these would also be in packs of 10. There would be some dealers who are willing to split them up and sell as one off’s. Is this pricing OK? It’s in line with what you would pay now for a comparable product BUT we offer a unique selling point over a boring plain white disk.

    I think that's a very reasonable price, and would definitely come in handy!

    cheers,
