DJI’s LiDAR focusing system (buy here) has been met with mixed responses since it was released in 2020. Some love it. Some hate it. LiDAR focusing is still in its early days, and the tech has a long way to go before it’s perfect, but it shows a lot of promise.
They’re not the only company working on it, though. PDMOVIE has just released their new LIVE AIR 3 SMART (buy here). It’s a remote follow focus motor that also includes LiDAR focusing for cinema and other manual lenses.
