D|Focus Version 3

acc_dfocus-main1

**New Update The new 3D Marking disc for the D|Focus V3 is now available. For more information go to www.dfocussystem.com

A Follow Focus is a Focus control mechanism used in film and video cameras. It is ergonomic rather than strictly necessary; in other words it does not contribute to the basic functionality of a camera but instead allows the operator to be more efficient and precise. It is usually operated by a focus puller (often called the 1st assistant camera, or 1st AC) but some camera operators prefer to pull their own focus (the act of changing focus is called “pulling” or “racking” focus). Traditionally follow focus systems costs thousands of dollars, and many manufacturers have tried to make a more affordable follow focus, but they still cost hundreds of dollars, well finally David Aldrich has come up a truly affordable design.

D|Focus Version 3 Features:

  • Customizable to fit most cameras
  • Accepts Industry standard 15mm rods
  • Accepts Industry standard 32 pitch gears
  • Accepts Industry standard Whips and Cranks
  • Rail Block holds rods at 60mm
  • Reversable Gearplate (Set it up on either side)

$139.99 + SH ea.

Choose Gears

Changes From the V2

    • New custom manufactured knob. Smaller in diameter and longer for a better grip and more room on the marking disc.
    • The reference pin also doubles as the 5/54″ hex wrench for making adjustments and flipping the gearbox over. This way you always have your adjustment wrench with you!
    • Thinner gearbox, about 1/4″ thinner than the V2. With the JAG35 Cage or the new JAG35 DSLR Baseplate we are able to make the D|Focus V3 work with even the shortest of lenses without having to reverse the gearbox (which would get in the way of a matte box.)
    • Thinner slider mount, again reduced by 1/4″, saves room on your rails

The D|Focus is quickly becoming one of our best selling products. It has proven time after time to be a very functional solution for all your critical focusing needs. With the release of the new and improved Version 3 not only has the design gotten better, but the drive gear box has significantly improved in functionality making to more effective and precise for focusing.

Everything Included in the D|Focus v3 Box

Everything Included in the D|Focus v3 Box

What you get in the box when you purchase the D|Focus will be the actual D|Focus version 3 unit itself, which will already include the white marking disc and marking pin. The D|Focus unit also comes with one Rail Block, so you can mount the D|Focus on support rods. (should work on any industry standard rods.) The package will also include the two needed allen keys, which can be used for adjustments during setup, or if you want to invert the D|Focus so it works on the other side of your rig. You will have the option of ordering D|Gears in the same package if you want to, you just have to specify how many you want and they will ship in the same package, or you can order the D|Focus alone.

    I have a Canon SLR with the Canon 70-200, 10-22 and 50mm

    Would I be able to buy the rig and 1 gear, being able to use it with each lens individually?

    • http://misagarcia.com Misa Garcia

      Well first of all, you should be looking at our new page for this product: http://j35.us/dfocus3

      But yes, our D|Gears that we sell together with the D|Focus is a universal gear, that should work with all those lenses, no problem. You can remove it from the lenses you use it on and install it on the other lenses. It’s not the best thing to do, only cuz setup time is not ideal, but it can certainly be done. the best thing to do is get one gear per lens, if possible, We also offer different type of gears, that are smaller and more compact and cheaper: http://jag35.com/onesizezipgear.html

      Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hi Sam, if you have the same lens all you need to order is the D|Gear: http://jag35.com/products/followfocus/dgear.html or a One Size Fits All Lens Gear: http://jag35.com/onesizezipgear.html

  • Anonymous

    Hi,
    You would have to get our DSLR Baseplate and 2 lens gears. You have two options the D|Gear or the One Size Fits All Lens Gear. Or you can get the D|Mount and two lens gears.

    Hi! if you want to use it with a battery grip you can do this all you would need is order a D|Riser to adjust the height of the follow focus you check it out here: http://jag35.com/driser.html

  • Anonymous

    Hi, you might want to try and use a regular marker and not a permanent marker just incase but I have not received any complaints about this before

  • Anonymous

    Hi you can use the battery grip with the D|Focus V3 but you will need a D|Riser to adjust the height.

  • Anonymous

    Hi,
    we havent tried it, it could possibly but it depends with what camera you are going to use it with. You can also email us about this and we continue to help you with more details.

  • Dave

    Do you have an estimate for shipping and duty/import tax for shipping to UK, thanks, do you have any distributors in UK?

    • http://misagarcia.com Misa Garcia

  • Jrconglomerate

    Just to make sure, All I would need is the DFocus and the DMount  with gears in order to use this on my camera, without the use of bars??

    Hello, Yes the D Focus V3 will work with your lens. But we would recommend for you to look into buying a D Gear for it as well.

  • http://misagarcia.com Misa Garcia

    Yes still in stock. Add it to your cart to see shipping quote to your location. Will work with any lens, as long as you have support rods to mount it. Shouldn’t be a problem.

    Many thanks 

    Tim

    • http://misagarcia.com Misa Garcia

      That definitely is an option if you want to do it that way, however, just so you know, we do ship direct from our warehouse direct to any location worldwide.

  • Michael House

    hey I purchased the d|focus last night with 3 gears and the money has been taken out of my account but I haven’t been sent a shipment email.  Has my order been sent out and aprox how many days does it take to ship to NYC?  Thanks a ton!

    • http://misagarcia.com Misa Garcia

      If you purchased last night, chances are we weren’t working last night, so we haven’t even seen your order yet. As soon as we do and we process it, you’ll receive a tracking number, as soon as we ship.

  • http://misagarcia.com Misa Garcia

    Yes, I believe you’re order has already been proceed and shipped, should be on it’s way today, here’s your tracking UPS number: 1Z0F01701291278132

  • http://misagarcia.com Misa Garcia

    Yes, it’s still available, but going fast, they won’t be available for much longer. We are only selling whatever we actually have in stock, it will ship within 2 – 4 days from when you order it. After we’ve sold our current batch, we will stop accepting orders, ’till we have more on our shelf, we’re no longer doing pre-sales at all. 3D marking disc is included.

  • http://misagarcia.com Misa Garcia

    yes, and if you order it with a D|Gear then it comes with a D|Gear, if you order it with No D|Gears, then it comes with no D|Gears.

    • Carl Petty
