In this Episode:
Rod-connectors, 3D-scanning, 3D-printing and Main part finished
I’ve started work on the geared follow focus, but it’s tricky and will take some extra time to get completed. The FF-system will use glue (for now) to fit inside a structure that angles the torque 90 degrees, so your FF-knob/wheel is rotating towards/away from you. Just like any system today. The main gear that attaches to the lens will of course be adjustable and available in different sizes for different lenses.
