FreshDV Reviews the Cinevate Durus Follow Focus
Hands on with the highly-anticipated Durus follow focus system
By Matthew Jeppsen | January 19, 2010
In the fall of 2007, FreshDV released an extensive review series of 5 popular follow focus units. We've continued to update this video review series in the following months and years. To date we've tested nine individual units, from ARRI, Chrosziel, Cinetech, Indifocus, Petroff, Redrock Micro, Shoot35/SGPro, and Zacuto. Today we're adding another review video for the new Cinevate Durus follow focus. The Durus is a new arrival as of 2009, a single-arm, all-aluminum follow focus unit that is designed for 35mm adapters, HDSLR's, and Red/Cinema applications (with the 19mm rod option).
