Hi All,

If Red could build a well engineered follow focus unit and matte box for under $999 each I think they would be onto a winner.

FWIW quality follow focus units currently start at over $3000!

Indeed, the build quality gulf between the current lower budget matte boxes and the hi end jobs is huge.

My favorite, the Arri FF4 goes for around 3000 for the complete set incl. marker rings and whip, etc.
Concerning matte boxes i usually rent an MB14 wich i think goes for about $4000.
