I will be shipping out orders today and tomorrow to try and get somewhat caught up! Thanks to all for your business and congrats!
Included in the current batch is the first "HFFF" follow focus for the Canon HF-S series cams. I got a bunch of extra time with an HF-S30 and was able to get the HFFF all dialed in and ready.
Interestingly, the HFFF will do quite a bit more than just manual focus. This is due to the fact that the dial is actually the "custom" setting like on the HV cams. You can set a bunch of different controlls to that dial, including manual focus, apeture control, and I'm assuming other things in different shooting modes. It's also pretty cool that when using the manual focus setting the results of your twist of the HFFF dial shows on the screen!!! This is SO HUGE!!! You can essentially bypass using the white marking disc- a killer option for use with the focus whip!
REMEMEBER: You will still need an extension of some sort, but no step-up. I used 2 58mm filters and it work perfectly, but I imagine a WA lens or lens hood or any other type of extended piece will do. Many HVFF customers and builders were able to get the HVFF to fit on many different accesories so I think this will actually be easier.
As always, let me know if you have any questions...
