Well-known camera accessories manufacturer Wooden Camera, just announced their UFF-1 Universal Follow Focus at NAB 2017. According to Wooden Camera this is the first follow focus to be compatible with 15mm LW, 15mm Studio, and 19mm rods without the use of adapters thus bringing a new meaning to the term “universal”. Users can simply unlock the clamps and slide to the appropriate rod position. Notches in the bottom of the bridge indicate when the clamp is in the correct position.
The included swing arm and lens gears can be flipped to the front or back position which is helpful for compact lens configuration and the bridge has the lowest height in the industry so it will work with the larger zoom lens barrels.
