Personally I've never used this follow focus:

But it is only $299

Thanks,
Luke

Tim, the creator of the indifocus, sent me a cine-pitch gear attachment free of charge that swaps out with the foamy thing. The trick, however, is finding gears to gear your lenses with...

He does?! I tried emailing him about that and he never responded. Maybe I'll shoot him another email...

OK. I am also looking into having my foam wheel on my Indi Focus swapped out for a gear wheel.

I sent Tim an email today asking that he send me a gear wheel and a wheel for my Canon 35mm FD lenses that I use at the end of the LETUSXL Flip.

Do you have a picture of your setup with the gear wheels he sent you?

Michael, when I saw you posted I knew to expect a negative criticism. But when I looked at the pic again, this time I had to laugh.


Actually to me it more resembles an automotive oil filler cap...

Honestly, I didn't mean to put it down at all. As it seems to be a DIY, I was wondering if he used a lid cap or what he used.

I have touched that toy. It's not the oil filler cap even though they look alike. Thanks.

So what's it then? I'm sure it's not custom made.

Why do you call it a "toy"?

I don't think it's custom made either. I called it "toy" in no mean saying it's quality is not good. It's indeed quality built stuff. Isn't this toy to some of you? Thanks.
