MicroFollowFocus and Vocas Matteboxes

Hi everyone,

Not very sure of where to post this thus thought of trying my luck in this forum.

Im currently using a XL-H1 with the Canon EF 180 macro (via a EF adaptor) for macro work. Difficulty in follow focusing has made me decide to get a followfocus unit. The problem is I am using Vocas mattebox with 15mm rods. This is the widescreen MB-250 model and I would like to know whether I can use the Redrock Micro's microfollowfocus on this set of Vocas support rods?

Thank you very much for any advice in advance.

Cheers

Han

Hi Han

The only requirements are that the vocas rods are standard 15mm lightweight (60mm center to center) and have enough room for the microFF to attach - this shouldn't be a problem as the vocas mattebox needs to be at the end of the lens so it should have plenty of room

Hi Brian! Im already a proud owner of a MicroFF for more than a year already. Haha. Thanks alot for the reply nonetheless.

For others info, the MFF really works well and as a nature macro shooter (my subjects have been ants and termites filling the frame of my H1), the focus is smooth and stays put when I let go. That is good.

Cheers

Han
