ARRI MFF-1 on an EX1 or EX3
Posted 29 November 2008 - 09:33 AM
Being an ARRI guy, naturally I am attracted to their products, and today I discovered this:
The follow focus is the MFF-1 and I was wondering if anyone had used this on an EX1 or EX3? And in general, since I have not had a chance to use either camera yet, how does the manual focus work on these cameras? Is it the servo manual focus, which is kind of mushy, or is it a direct mechanical manual focus where you can repeatedly hit your marks?
Any and all info would be greatly appreciated.

And like a typical customer, always wanting more, any chance of doing a video with the ARRI MFF-1 on the HVX-200?
Not sure how well a follow focus would work on that camera (HVX-200) as it does not have a "real" mechanical manual focus ring. Have you tried the HVX with the MFF-1?

I've not yet used a follow focus on the camera but I'm betting it will behave quite well and focus should be repeatable.
