A focus pulling system for the stead operator to handle by himself

Recommended Posts

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.)

The red rock is exclusively for their focus system. TheG-zoom is compatible with the analog Bartech and any eng style lens that have servos (Fujinon etc...) it also does focus, zoom and push to talk.

Just to be clear the digital bartech cannot be used to control your own focus. Only the analogue one has the control port where the g-zoom or bartech thumbwheel connect. I have an analogue for sale in the marketplace. Make me an offer if your interested.

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.
