50-Dollar Follow Focus

If you’ve ever looked into buying a follow focus, you already know that they’re quite expensive, and yet pretty much a necessity for precise shooting. Wiley Davis’ 50-Dollar Follow Focus changes that with its [predictable] 50$ price tag and robust, machined aluminium design. The device forgoes the standard gear-on-gear design which is cleverly replaced by a pulley, toothed-belt and lever, and looks like a pleasure to operate.

Even amateur videographers can justify this purchase. Check it out at Hondo Garage or Amazon – $50
