Of all the follow focus solutions this really seems to be the most promising.
I kind of dislike the iPhone/pod display idea as you can see in the vids that the screen redraw could be a lot faster with a built in solution...
But anyways, i'm interested.

I don't think using an iphone is the best solution, I'd much rather use a built in display. I'm wondering about power - what happens when you've been doing 6 hours of steadicam and the iphone battery runs out? Also what happens when you are pulling focus and get a phone call? or a txt message? Also makes the hand unit more fragile. Everything in the kit looks very low build quality, all plasticy.

I'd love to see them make something that is really production worthy, but cost a bit more. I'd pay $10,000 for a system if it was the build quality of a c-motion or preston.

Not a fan of the rip off cinetape either. The numeric display is built into the horns?? What if you are working from the dumb side? It makes much more sense to make the display seperate, like on a real cinetape.
