Looks a bit like a knock off of my Chrosziel. Mine even has that same adapter from lightweight to studio.

It's a Proaim brand, marketed by Cinecity and sold by various resellers on eBay for about US$550. Made in India.

I'm also curious to hear from someone who has used one. Hope they speak up.

This FF is almost the only cheap one (Cavision also do one) that lets you put the drive gear above the rod clamp rather than offset.

Cheers,
Gregg

Adrian/Gregg,

Really appreciate the help! I recognize the Chrosziel influence now that you mention it!

I think I may end up with a Movcam MFF-1 which looks to be a copy of Arri

Best,

Adam
