I've been trying to justify spending the money on a follow focus system, but considering that I would have to invest in the system itself, rails and what not, I've been trying to come up with a more affordable solution for the meantime...

Well, last night while in Bed, Bath & Beyond (shopping for a gift for my mom...) I happened across these little gems for .... (wait for it....) !! $2.50 !!

They are:

Cheap
Light
Sturdy
Washable ( you never know....)
Variety of colors
and did I mention cheap?

This fits all my lenses from my 20mm pancake to my Tamron 17-50 VC which is pretty darned thick!

The movement is silky smooth and the consistency of the rubber creates a very nice ease in/ease out for the focus pull itself.

Just thought I'd share....

BTW, shot this on my Canon HFS100. Really comes in handy for quick stuff like this!

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
