Simple (I think) question: How does a BL2 with lens blimp work with a follow focus?
The focus ring sleeve on the prime blimp is smooth with a couple of nubs to control focus.
How can you use a FF? Do you "add" a gear sleeve?

On the zoom blimp, the focus ring does have teeth so I assume you can use a FF.

I've access to a cheap (broken) FF and need to know if I can use it with the primes. It's broken on the "left" insert metal housing that can either be welded/repaired, or I just use it always on the right side.

The BL2 is one that used to be owned by Disney...kind of neat to see mouse ears on my camera.
