What People Are Saying About D|Focus...
"Well I did my shoot and I must say I’m most impressed with your rig. Frankly, for the money it can’t be beat. The follow focus is smooth and rail kit is sturdy and solid. Ive worked with follow focuses 3x the price and the difference is negligible. The quick arm (D|Crank) that you sent me was a nice addition for grabbing hold of while looking through the viewfinder. It was a little easier to locate “blindly” with my hand than the knob is. Overall, much impressed. I will be sure to advocate your product to my peers."

The guys over at D|Focus understand Filmmaking! As a Filmmaker that makes corporate films with budgets that are tight and always up against deadlines . I appreciate that my D|Focus gear is reliable and works every single time. One of the things I like about this company is how quickly they have developed and migrated their Gear over the last 3 years. It keeps getting better. They listen to filmmakers and they make improvements, upgrades based on user feedback. D|Focus is one of those companies that I can say is STILL made in the USA. I like that! Good Gear made by Good people. I can't wait to see what these guys do over the next 3 years. Its cool to see this little company that started as a hobby now making Gear that is First Rate. I highly recommend their Gear!
I first got wind of D|Focus Systems when raising sponsorship support for a documentary film I played part in producing overseas in Japan. Me and my team we're looking for a follow focus that would be ultra light and portable as well as cost effective. After having spent weeks shooting utilizing the D|Focus Follow Focus there's no doubt that D|Focus Systems met our needs.
Most amateur and even working professionals can't afford top notch camera accessories so they either spend money that's not in their budget or do without critical time saving accessories. With D|Focus products you can get the features you want at the price point that almost anyone can stomach. From a documentary film in Japan, to commercial short films on the East Coast, to an upcoming feature film in Uganda, I've been carrying around my D|Focus Follow Focus and Mattebox and putting them to great use.
I highly recommend these affordable and functional camera accessory products for anyone wanting to up their game and increase shooting efficiency while not breaking the bank. And it's always nice knowing everything is made right here in the USA.
I'm very glad to have found D|Focus and Robert Aldrich. Their products are wonderfully made and very affordable. I will continue to be buying things from them and always enjoy talking to the ever friendly Robert about their products and questions I've had about using them. This is an A+ boutique company.

Working in the industry I have access to equipment from many companies but I always choose D|Focus products. The follow focus is light weight and has less slack in the gears than products costing much more. The matte box is fantastic. I have two of them and use them all the time. Plus, in an age when everyone is making cheap junk in China, D|Focus products are still made in the USA.
Recently we have started working with various D|Focus products included in the Cine Bundle. The V4 Follow Focus is just an amazing piece of equipment, and the price to quality ratio is unmatched. The D Matte is another tool we now use on every shoot we do, can't live without it, amazing feature set for such an accessible price.
You can check out our review of the V4 Follow Focus at the following link, our D|Matte review will be posted soon!
D Focus is great for any filmmaker on a budget. Anyone that is already using a DSLR is doing so in some respect to save money while still getting a high quality product. D Focus is a great extension of this desire for a professional look without having to pay through the nose to achieve it. Whether you are doing a run-and-gun style shoot with the shoulder rig or want a smooth rack focus, D Focus is the product for you.
I use my D|Focus and D|Matte on almost every shoot. Theyre easy to use and serve my purposes well. For their price, dfocus products offer great video solutions.
I have enjoyed using my follow focus and matte box from D|Focus. Their customer service is prompt and concise. I am excited to see what new products they come up with in the future.
Really love working with the DFocus Systems gear. They make quality affordable equipment.
