Doesn't look like anything I've ever used. Are the grips on the wheels really orange...? :blink:

And this year in camera equipment, the retro look is IN, folks...slap one of these on the support rods of a Frezzolini and you're good to go!

Looks like the definition of Home-Brew. I'd bet it's 30 years old if it's a day. Scary.

Where did you get it from? Does it have any play in the gear mesh? Might be kind of neat to slice off the bottom and slap on an Arri rod adapter.. and change those wheels.

It's a little ghetto but it looks pretty solid.

At first glance, it looks like a Cinetech follow focus.

There are certainly similarities. I wonder if it could be a prototype of something.

It's from an eBay auction.

According to the seller: "It's a Sammy's conversion. Sammy's was a rental house in Europe that specializes in rentals and manufacturing of after market motion picture equipment."

Hi Michael,

Samuelsons were the first Panavision Agent outside the USA. Panavision bought them & they now tarde as Panavision.

I had a hunch it was Pana related, it looked solid and sleek enough :)
