Air Lens Gears are the best way to adapt still lenses for motion and cinema.

Air Lens Gears – 66% lighter, 200% smaller, 100% what you want

Air Lens Gears are the best way to adapt still lenses for motion and cinema. These lens gears add lightweight precision gearing for accurate and repeatable focusing using a follow focus or wireless remote, and are small enough to leave on even when shooting stills. If you use still photo lenses for video and need lens gears that are top performers, small and light, and a great value, Air Lens Gears are for you.

The Best Way to Use Still Photo lenses for Motion and Cinema

Gearing your still lenses is essential to give you precise, repeatable focus pulls for video and cinema. The Air Lens Gears are designed with a unique lubricated nylon that wraps around your lens’ focus ring and applies gentle, even pressure for non-slip performance. Air Lens Gears have industry-standard 0.8 gearing that works with any focus system including Redrock’s microFollowFocus, microRemote and Eclipse.
Your lens is not modified in any way, and Air Lens Gears can be easily removed. But you won’t need to: they are small and light enough that you can leave on all the time, whether you are shooting motion or stills.

Perfect for Drones, Gimbals, and Smaller Cameras

Air Lens Gears are ideal when you need to keep weight and size down. They are 66% lighter than alternatives, and small enough to keep your rig tight.

Professional Performance you don’t have to worry about

Air Lens Gears are made of a unique lubricated nylon, so they grip your lens gently and securely, and unlike other gears never cracks or loses its shape. The unique Final Touch tightening system ensures you get just the right amount of tension so the gear never slips.
