Indifocus Follow Focus
Posted 11 January 2008 - 01:33 PM
I hope I don't have to send it back to the US. I'm in London. I was going to use it for my up coming film. Any help greatly appreciated. Maybe I´m doing something wrong. Fingers crossed.

I hope for you indiefocus has a good return policy.

That being said, I also don't understand people who don't USE the follow focus. I was talking to a cinematography professor recently who advises his students against it and I had to bite my tongue because to me, pulling off the lens is awkward and if anything, less accurate than being able to use a fine-tip dry-erase on the marking disk or whatever.
:shrug: Just saying...

Yeah. I worked this crappy Aaton job where I had to pull off the lens and it was mostly handheld...so it was ridiculous. Thank god for skinny arms. I feel like the follow focus has the potential to be MORE accurate as long as you aren't making these big fat marks on the disk.
Absolutely, and as long as it's a good one with no play or lashback. You can often see the FF a lot better than you can see the barrel of the lens.
