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 !!
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!
