Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The New Dot Line Corp. Follow Focus w/Ring is the next evolution in the affordable follow focus design from D|Focus Systems. We’ve made several changes that improve on the durability, reliability and aesthetics of the V3, while still maintaining the small footprint and affordable cost.
The V4 has the same, “open gearbox” design as the previous models, but is improved thanks to our new, custom manufactured “hybrid” gears. These gears offer the same damped, low backlash, smooth feel of the V3 but with the durability of metal gears!
We’ve also done away with the plastic rod mount found on the previous models in favor of an all CNC machined, single rod clamp, aluminum mount. This makes the new D|Focus V4 even smaller and more compact than the already small V3!
The New D|Focus V4 features our new, custom manufactured "hybrid" miter gears, plastic teeth molded onto aluminum insert.
The advantage of plastic gears is that we can get a smooth, near backlash free action without the need for grease. This comes at a cost to durability though as plastic is obviously not as strong as metal. Metal gears offer the highest durability, but require grease for a smooth operation and that requires an enclosed gearbox, adding to the expense. You don't want to get grease all over your expensive lenses!
