CAME-TV has made a name for itself for offering quality filmmaking gear at prices low-budget creatives can afford. Its Astral Follow Focus is no different, offering powerful wireless focus, iris, and zoom control for under $300. But now, CAME-TV has dropped the price by 15% on this already inexpensive unit so filmmakers of all stripes and financial situations can take advantage of what a follow focus system can offer their productions.
Designed to pair with DSLR, mirrorless, and cine-style lenses, the Astral Follow Focus system has a lot to offer. The two units, the focus control motor and the focus handwheel, are able to connect from 328 feet away over a 2.4 GHz wireless signal. The handwheel has a built-in marking disk with light indicator and an OLED display that displays the unit's battery level, connection, calibration, travel, and memory info. It also features run/stop and shutter functions. The motor features a 0.8 MOD gear and 0.5Nm speed at a maximum 250 rpm. The follow focus system features a mini-USB port and auto-calibration. As far as power goes, the motor can be powered by either your camera or an external battery, while the handwheel is powered by a built-in 1000mAh LiPo battery with up to 8-hours of life.
