Well, the X1 is a nice follow focus, one that you would expect to be over £200 just a few years ago. In fact it’s virtually the same as my Camtree Follow Focus, which I bought for over £200 just about 2 years ago. It has the same marking disc, same 360 degree adjustable pointer, similar mounting system (probably both were made by the same manufacturer). While I still prefer my good old Camtree, the X1 offers so much for such a low price. Although the gearbox has some play (similar amount to similarly priced, but simpler RJ and probably less than Fotga DP500, which another really cheap option).
The fact that you get the whip and the lens gear on top of all the cool features gives this follow focus the edge over the similarly priced units.
Although I decided not to keep mine (I don’t need more than one FF anyway), I do recommend it to people who on a really low budget or/and just buying their first follow focus.
If you think, this might not be the one for you, make sure to check out my Follow Focus Buyers Guide for more great value for money options.
