Mine was brand new and all sealed up when i got it from B&H... I'd return the unit to B&H and demand a brand new one.
So if you going to work with Still and Cine lenses you should buy 2 Sets, (Photo set and plus CFF1 Handweel) it is 1800 for Photo set and plus 700 for CFF1 handweel? So you need to pay 2500 if you are going to work with both still and Cine lenses?
For example many people are working with still lenses (ZE, Canon) but sometimes these people rent or just use Cine lenses too (CP.2, Zeisse standart or Heigh speed or even Ultra Prime) so if they buy Photo Set they will be able work only with still lenses and for work with Cine Lenses they need additionally buy CFF1- Handweel for 700 USD?
So in this case O'focus is good for people who work with one tape of lenses Still or Cine?
Because if people work with Still and Cine lenses the price in this case will be 2500 and in this case it is possible to buy ARRI FF5 HD for 3200 and for any tapes of lenses or maybe ARRI FF2 for arround 1700 USD for any lenses too?
And Photo set has 2 hard stops and Cine set hasn't any stop? Is it normal to work with Follow focus without any stops?
So, I want to know if I would need both the Photo & Cine version for the Mini FF.
I have a Canon 17-55 IS.
And I also have a Contax Zeiss 85mm.
The Zeiss one has more rotation and has hard stops. Would I need the Photo version for it still or the Cine version?
And with the RPP, because of the limited focus marks, wouldnt it be better to use the Photo version than the Cine version for it? Im not sure how much rotation it has, but looking at some of the pictures, it didnt look like it was almost a 360' rotation, so I thought the Photo version would be better, and would help with the missing markings.
The cine wheel feels alot more solid than the photo wheel, which has a hollow sort of feel. I prefer the cine, but I own both. You would use the cine wheel with red lenses definitely.
It's the same follow focus. Just get both knobs.
Will the cine version accommodate a lens with a very large diameter, such as the RED Pro 18-85mm zoom? Or will it require something like the CFF handwheel extension?
I believe it will accomodate the 18-85. You should check with OConnor though to be sure :)
