ARRI FF-5HD Follow Focus

Please contact us for questions:



The ARRI FF-5HD is a follow focus that has been designed specifically for video lenses or cine lenses with a small diameter barrel. The FF-5HD has a longer swing arm for better gear positioning with HD lenses. A lower gear ratio is also better suited for the smaller lens diameter of HD lenses and/or for cine lenses with a compressed focus scale. The ARRI FF-5HD can be mounted directly onto lightweight rods through a snap-on mechanism, ensuring simple and fast setup on the set. With an adapter it can also be snapped onto 15 or 19mm support rods. The FF-5HD can be equipped with driver gears for all popular types of HD and cine lenses. The drive gears can be attached on both sides of the swing arm.

Since the FF-5HD shares the accessories of the ARRI follow focus FF-4, it can easily be equipped with a right and left focus knob, short and long focus whips and a focus crank. The follow focus body has been designed long enough so the same focus knob can be used camera left and right. With the FF-5HD, the typical quality of ARRI camera accessories is now also available for video cameras.
