The ePhoto FF unit provides smooth and play-free accurate pulls. It is ergonomic rather than strictly necessary; in other words it does not contribute to the basic functionality of a camera but instead allows the operator to be more efficient and precise. It is usually operated by a focus puller but some camera operators prefer to pull their own focus . It works great with all kinds DSLR camera on the market today.

I am a film student, slowly building up and adding to my own rig for a long while. This Christmas i bought this device and everything else that is required it to attach it to my rig. Today the rails arrived and i have put it all together.
Synopsis of review: ( if you don't feel like reading the whole thing ) Pros: - Quality build of plastic & Metal - Easy to use and assemble - High quality feel - Does as advertised
- internal gearbox grinding slightly. Could be fault point in future (not enough to worry about although if it fails after 30 days of regular use i will lower my review considerably) - Build quality control was slightly less than perfect out of the box. Needs basic adhesive repair. (a monkey can do it, so its easy, but i don't understand why the manufacturing monkeys didn't do it already ;) ) - Pulling and lens gears are plastic. Quicker wear and tear but should still last a long while if...
Although the listed price of the EZFoto is higher, at this moment it sells for just 180.
Comparing both FF, the FancierStudio one has cheaper materials, mostly plastic and has some play between the control and the gear, the EZ studio is mostly metallic, way more solid and has absolutelly no play anywhere.
It also has 2 metallic stops to set pulling range and overall it's construction is similar to higher end FF.
I am now trying to sell the Fancier Studio FF to get the EZFoto one.
Unless the price difference is unaffordable (currently it's about $50)...
It does just what it is supposed to do. It works well. I'm not too impressed with the gear that fits the lens. I wish it would fit the lens tighter. But it works.
