Thanks for the pics of the Eldercron ( is that how spell it ?) Anyway hard to tell how it works I assume the big wheel on the arm drives the lens cog. So a question, the gearbox looks bulky how much room does it take up on the rods & is it clip on clip off ?
P.S. For still glass I'm going for a left field nomination . Gini Rigs "I focus" no hard stops, fully manual, no backlash, locks to one rod, similar to Cinevate Durus with a rubber O ring on the drive cog you don't need lens gears, works similar to the Oconnor still lens FF in that respect. Whilst it ain't a Arri or an O'Connor it's rock solid & cheap.
Even the best FF can't compensate for inaccurate focussing of still picture lenses. If you want the best FF available, try Arri LFF-1. Price to match.
What about the Letus FF? Anybody got one of those that could comment?
Been using the Cinevate durus. Works well. Really does have a solid build and minimal play. A bit chunky so sometimes it is a pain to maneuver around. Michael, i'd be willing to sell mine if you were interested. Been looking to get the O-focus dm for some zeiss glass.
Absolutely, here it is mounted on top: http://achtel.com/services.htm
What I also like about the LFF-1 is that it reduces the clutter around the lens because it is so tiny!
