The CFF-1 Cine Follow Focus, features modular construction that eliminates the need to juggle separate bridge plates. The CFF-1 has the lowest clearance available in a double-sided studio unit, and sports a large diameter lens-friendly design. It integrates seamlessly with existing popular accessories such as whips, gears, cranks, and is designed to be both camera versatile and to accommodate future accessories.

Another innovation is the O-Grips Handgrip system for popular professional cameras. They feature single-handle ball joints with high-load capacity, and a rod bridge that fits all three rod standards. The modular O-Grips are stackable for custom applications and can be configured to create double or even multi-joint handles. Each grip is fully adjustable and is capable of a half sphere of stepless articulation. By combining two grips, the range can be extended to a complete sphere.
