Has anyone done it? i know that its a good idea to get a follow focus but really? 200-1000 dollars? it's a very simple concept, why not do it diy?
has anyone made a DIY follow focus? if you have would you like to give some insight?
making a follow focus using a 1:2 right angle gearbox seems like the easiest way to go about it. Just designing a simple way to make the engagement surfaces work well.
Let me know what you think, if you have a follow focus, what kind do you have and is it worth the money you spent?
