Follow Focus + Remote Made From K’NEX

Follow Focus + Remote  Made From K'NEXOn of the big rants of Videographers moving to HD-DSRLs is the hard to control manual focus. The focus ring on most DSRL lenses is very tight, completing a full zero to infinity cycle in about 120 or 180 degrees.

A follow focus can use gears to change that ratio. Sadly such follow focus for DSLRs  are in the megabux neighborhood.

Enter prippman from Bootleg Productions. Using a secret K’NEX stash and their motorized battery pack, prippman created the first child-toy-driven-remote-controlled follow focus.
