            This is just a rush Video Test to show the Okii USB Follow Focus Controller when mounted on a rig and manually changing focus using the controller's knob. This is the ORIGINAL video clip saved by the camera. It is not edited in any way. Due to very slow internet speed connection a longer video was not possible to be uploaded yet. Please don't judge the focus puller abilities :) Especially since he was watching the 3" camera LCD screen and not an external monitor (a huge advantage, completely possible while using this device). Also keep in mind that the camera has Full Frame sensor (very shallow depth of field) and aperture was set to f/4 on focal length of 50mm. - SETUP: Canon EOS 5D Mark II + Canon EF 24-70 2.8L USM (at 50mm) - CAMERA SETTINGS: 1080p24 (Full HD 24p), Shutter: 1/50, Aperture: f/4, ISO: 1600, WB: 5300K Picture Styles settings: "Standard": Sharpness 3 (default), Contrast 0 (lowest), Saturation 0 (default), Tone 0 (default) Audio: Disabled - Okii FOLLOW FOCUS CONTROLLER SETTINGS: "Medium" Step Size, 15 focus commands per second. - OPERATIONS: 1- The lens is pre-focused on the basket (~0.6m from the camera) 2- USB Controller's "Start/Stop" recording button pressed 3- Camera/Lens aimed to chair/furniture until got them framed 4- Chair/furniture (~3m from the camera) focused using the knob 5- WAITED FOR A MOMENT (about 1 second) 6- Camera/Lens aimed back to basket while focusing back 7- Basket framed and finished focusing; waited a bit. 8- Controller's "Start/Stop" recording button pressed ** FOR MORE DETAILS about the USB FF Controller check: http://www.hdcamteam.com ** There is a COUPON CODE posted on the blog for those people interested to buy the controller directly from the manufacturer. ** Thanks for watching!

              Short Test (not a professional video!) to show a simple Rack Focus operation using the Okii USB Follow Focus controller. This is the Original untouched file, recorded by the camera and uploaded here. Not edited nor converted at all. (original file available for download) After adjusting the controller and saving the focus points (3 in this test), Start/Stop Video Recording button was pressed and then the Rack Focus operation was done by pressing buttons: Focus Point #1, #2 and #3. The focus change occurs immediately after pressing the Focus Point button. I simply waited a bit between pressing focus points. Of course, this process can also be manually done by moving the knob, but I wanted it to be automatic, pressing saved focus points. SETUP: Canon EOS 5D Mark II + Canon EF 24-70 2.8L USM at 70mm VIDEO CAPTURING SETTINGS: 24p, 1/50, f/3.5, ISO 500, WB: 5300K Picture Style: Neutral, Sharpness: 0 (lowest), Contrast: -4 (lowest), Saturation: 0 (middle), Color tone: 0 (middle) Sound: Disabled. Okii USB FF CONTROLLER SETTINGS: "Medium" Step size, 11 commands per second. This rack focus can also be done faster, I just wanted to use reliable and conservative settings. ** ORIGINAL Full HD video untouched file available for download for 1 week (Vimeo's limit) ** FOR MORE DETAILS about the USB FF Controller check: http://www.hdcamteam.com ** Thanks for watching!!

                Short Test (not a professional video!) to show a simple Rack Focus operation using the Okii USB Follow Focus controller. This is the Original untouched file, recorded by the camera and uploaded here. Not edited nor converted at all. (original file available for download) PROCESS: Focus point #1: David Focus point #2: Chairs To give an idea of distances: Subject "David" was at 0.8m (2.6ft) from the camera and subject "Chairs" at 5m (16.4ft) from the camera After adjusting the controller and saving the focus points, with the focus set on the subject "Chairs" (Focus point #2), the Rack Focus operation was as simple as pressing button Focus Point #1. SETUP: Canon EOS 5D Mark II + Canon EF 50mm 1.4 USM VIDEO CAPTURING SETTINGS: 24p, 1/50, f/2, ISO 800, WB: 5300K Picture Style: Neutral, Sharpness: 0 (lowest), Contrast: -4 (lowest), Saturation: 0 (middle), Color tone: 0 (middle) Sound: Camera Buil-in Mic. Settings: Manual gain (25%) (* see at bottom) Okii USB FF CONTROLLER SETTINGS: "Medium" Steps, 13 commands per second. This lens has a micro USM motor, which is not as smooth as other Canon USM lenses. (*) SOUND NOTES: The recorded sound may distract from the actual video result. It does not reflect the real sound level of the noise made by the lens during the process. The sound was recorded only to make note that the motor is running BUT in the REAL field it is barely noticeable, even with this lens that is not the quietest Canon USM lens. OF COURSE, no sound would be recorded at all if an external microphone is properly placed and used. ** STRONGLY RECOMMENDED ** Turn Sound Off while watching the video test, to avoid confusion or distraction by the motor of the lens. ** ORIGINAL Full HD video untouched file available for download for 1 week (Vimeo's limitation) ** FOR MORE DETAILS about the USB FF Controller check: http://www.hdcamteam.com ** Thanks for watching!
