Has anyone used this system for focus pulling while flying a stead ?





If not, could someone suggest a reliable focus pulling system that could be used by the operator himself when using manual focus lenses ?


(I know :) it's not the ideal situation, it's usually best to have a focus puller).

Thanks a lot guys for your advice ! I had hard time finding relevant information.


By the way I just saw a similar steadicam gimbal adaptable fingerweel controller on redrock's site too. (Not sure if it's as reliable as the ones you suggested.)

I see, so ideally in my case for controlling the focus myself (I don't own a wireless follow focus system at all - renting so far)

a good combination could be for example the G-Focus Package: http://www.erik-anderson.com/product/g-focus-package/

Plus motors from Bartech or another manufacturer ?

Hey everybody! I have recently had to conduct a research on follow focus systems, their specifications and so on. I think many people, at least who is looking for a FF, will be interested. I’ve checked the most popular models, both wireless and wired, mechanical and electronic. I’ve done it myself so If you have any questions I will be ready to answer.
