    I just got these in the mail a couple of hours ago, and I’m pleased with the quality and construction. As you may know Lens Gear rings provide a major step up in production when you don’t have true cinema lenses in your arsenal. I have purchased the 

    Neewer Adjustable Follow Focus Gear Ring Belt for DSLR Lenses/HDSLR Follow Focus, fits any lens with diameter from 65mm to 105mm

     before and they were able to make my follow focus work, but they leave all the extra gear ring “strap” hanging out and you have to tie or secure them to the ring which makes an oval / nautilus shaped gear ring. I will need them because there are some situations where this new set just won’t work and you’ll see why. I was ready to step up to this design but the cost has been prohibitive for a full set of 6-8 lenses until now. I took my chances on these as a new product and I’m happy I did. But there are some things to be aware of before you guy them. Here’s the good and bad of it.

    PROS:
    Great Price: This is pretty obvious.
    Good Construction: I pulled and tugged and stretched on them and they hold up well.
    Simple packaging. A box with lenses in a plastic bag. No hassles and no “are these used goods” kind of red flags.
    Fits well with some lenses and standard follow focus gears: the mid-sized ring fits perfectly snug on L Series glass (17-40 Canon F4)
    It is snug and there’s room for a larger lens but when tightened down flush like it shows in the photos these will fit perfectly on your L Series Glass. When using these on a non L series they are so snug and tight fitting that you can see them pull down on the camera / lens when you get to the end of the focus spin on a ring that doesn’t spin on the lens after infinity or minimum focus distance. I take that as a sign that these are really holding on well to lenses with rubber focus rings.

    CONS:
    3 rings don’t rule them all! These gear rings err on the side of too large instead of too small. They have these long screws and they don’t use them at all. If you have any old school manual photo lenses the smalles ring just isn’t “small enough.” I think they should have made the smallest gear have even longer inside “brackets” to hold onto smaller lenses. If you have anything smaller than a true 58mm focus ring, then you are not going to be able to use these without adding something to your lens to increase it’s circumference.

    The largest ring is so large that it would probably take a 70-200mm L series lens or something even bigger. And those lenses are rarely used in video production because of their cost and focal lengths they are pretty impractical options; of course gear rings are made for shooting video. I think they should have reconsidered how they size these and allow the long screw to work in your favor when you need them to fit on a larger piece of glass, instead of just having them need to be totally tightened down to be useful.

    I think 2 of these will be useful for adding a gear to most common photo lenses. The most useful one will be the mid sized ring or the smaller ring big the big ring is just too big.

    CONCLUSION: So I would say you MUST MEASURE YOUR FOCUS RINGS FIRST, before buying these. You can use those tape measures for sewing. If you find one without metric measurements just convert it using google. Even if you just wrap something (string, ribbon) around your lenses/focus rings then lay the string out and measure it with a ruler it’s better than nothing. Then you will have a good idea of how useful these would be for mod-ing your glass.

    REAL WORLD SPECS:
    1. Small Ring: You NEED to be a minimum of about 65-mm for the smallest ring to fit properly for a production as is. Any lens with a ring smaller than 63mm will probably need gaff tape or something on it to get the circumference wide enough to use the small gear in this set during production.

    2. Middle Ring: As stated the mid-sized gear fits perfectly on an L series with front filter screw that is 77mm. The smallest focus ring that the mid sized gear will work on is about 74-75mm in this set. That’s what I put it on and it is nearly flush on both ends of the gear ring when tightened down on this lens. It could go a little tighter if your lens is a little smaller. But there’s not much room to spare.

    3. Big Ring: You need a focus ring with a minimum of 82-85 mm on your lens for the largest gear in this set to hold tightly enough to work properly.

    I double checked these numbers using a set of step up rings ranging from 49mm to 82mm. But be aware, if you don’t have solid rubber or plastic ridges on your lens’ focus ring then you will need these to be very tight because there’s no rubber or ridges on the feet of the gear brackets where they contact the lens.

    LARGE LENSES:
    I tested the smallest gear ring to see how much more size you get with the screw loosened all the way. A 72mm ring fits inside at full extension but it is too loose for operation. I think you need a ring that is about 74-75mm to operate it properly. So the small ring has a range of 65mm – approx. 74.5 mm. Since all of these have the same screw you can basically add about 9 or 10mm to the minimum sizes stated above and then you have the maximum size for each ring in the set as is out of the box. You could always go to a hardware store and ger a longer screw if you need a few more mm of extension but at some point you would not be able to fit around the lens at all since a screw is straight.

    Room for improvement:
    Rubberized fittings or ridges to hold onto the lens a little more securely.
    It would be great if you could choose which sizes you wanted in your set
    If the small ring was small enough for small 55mm lenses that would be helpful for a lot of people
    Maybe a longer screw to compensate for smaller lens brackets would be more universal/useful for the market searching for this product.
    If these improvements were made THEN this would be a 5star offering.

    I hope this is a helpful review. Thanks for reading to the bitter and informative end! Now get out there and shoot something …. something good!

    The rings arrived stacked in a small box. They are made of semi-rigid plastic with a thumb screw with a knob to tighten on a lens. When installed, the small ring adds about 2.6 centimeters (about an inch) to the diameter of the lens. The medium ring adds about 2 centimeters and the large adds about 1 centimeter.

    The small ring, when fully tightened, fits the Panasonic 12-35. On the Panasonic 35-100, it is a bit loose. A size 62 rubber band on the lens adds just enough depth to allow the focus ring to tighten properly. Using a silicone lens band would work also. The medium ring fits a Sigma 18-35. I don’t have a lens with a large enough diameter to fit the large ring.

    The rings are geared to a 0.8 pitch and should work with most any follow focus gear. The tightening thumb screw is long and you may have to be careful about positioning the ring to avoid having the screw interfere with focusing.

    I do wish that they would sell individual rings rather than the set, so you could have several of the small rings without buying multiple sets.

    Perfekte Verzahnung mit allen 0.8 Follow Focus Antrieben. Habe immer eine geeignete Position finden können, bei der die lange Schraube nicht stört. Einfache Montage ohne Werkzeug und Fummelei.

    Vorteil gegenüber den Zahnriemen zum umbinden ist der annähernd konstante Durchmesser bei allen Objektiven. Durchmesser und Breite sind deutlich größer als bei den Zahnriemen, daher ist auch ein besseres Übersetzungsverhältnis und feinere Kontrolle möglich.

    Durch die starre Konstruktion ist eine nachträgliche Montage im Rig schwieriger, wenn die Matte Box sich nicht wegklappen läßt. Daher am besten 2 oder 3 Sets kaufen und alle Objektive vorher damit ausstatten. Leider ist hier der große Durchmesser wieder von Nachteil, da in der Tasche/Koffer mehr Platz benötigt wird.

    You can definitely tell that the quality in the building materials is very high. Are used a follow focus adapter that was kind of like a stretchy material that wraps around like a rubber band and decided to try to upgrade to something a little bit more firm.

These Movo rings are awesome. My last adapter would skip and these are built solid and are very easy to put onto the lens and if you clamp them down it feels very very solid on the lens. Don’t hesitate to pick these up they’re fantastic.

    Now I have to admit I didn’t do my homework on the size of these suckas! Let’s face it, when purchasing Amazon products…in the pic the product will look ADULT SIZE, or larger but when you receive it in your hand it is tiny! NOT THE CASE HERE! These sucka’s were LARGE! I was impressed at how STURDY they were! I especially admired how the screw atop the ring can be tightened to preference. Plastic, but forged! A few minor adjustments and BOOM!! My Nikon D3400’s focus was ready to be controlled on the rig, by a follow focus!

    Been using this for about a month now and i have no problems with it. They are very sturdy. It still made of plastic but a harder plastic. The teeth on the outside of the rings where the focus gear is mounted is really nicely shaped. I found them to work quite well with my follow focus that I have. Sometimes the follow focus does slip a little, but i found that that is due to the design of the follow focus i have and am using with this Movo Follow focus ring. The follow focus that I am using is the fifty dollar follow focus by hondo garage. It grips well but the mechanical wheel on the follow focus that grips the teeth on theses rings is a little narrow, which is why I suspect that it slips just a little if i am not careful. Again not a flaw with these focus rings, rather the design of the fifity dollar follow focus from hondo garage. Also the only thing is I wish instead of a three pack of different sizes, they could sell different packs of the same size as most of my lens are the same diameter. But besides that it works as advertised!
