Hi Steve,
Here is a link to the post i made of the follow focus. http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=120864
I have tweaked it a little since i posted the photos, & drilled lots of holes in the lens support & parts of the follow focus itself to lighten everything up, but i must say, it works like a charm. I will be heading over to Western Australia for a week to see my brother & sister in law & their new little baby girl on Friday night, so i have high hopes i will be able to do my entry whilst i'm there. Hopefully i will be able to give you a good idea of how my follow focus works in the footage i shoot.

Bryce

Nice shots, Vidar!
Seems like we will get some under water footage from you this time. :)


I will most likely end up in the shark tank this round.
Don't think I will get my computer before the deadline.
Still crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.

Yes I know, the dreadful shark tank is the last place on earth I want to be in.
Hope everyone manage to stay away from that place this round.
Would be very good if everyone can submit an entry this round.

I will at least shoot my video, regardless if I have access to a computer or not.
Hmm, maybe Premiere Pro 2 can be installed on a 8 year old computer running win2k on a 450MHz CPU and 256MB ram? Guess it's worth a try.

I spent spent Monday and Tuesday of this week trying to capture something, anything that resembles wildlife. On Monday I crossed paths with hundreds of little, baby frogs crossing a path. I got some good shots, but it would have been cool to get some macro shots. I'm using my standard vx2100 without anything fancy. I'm not sure if it is usable but I thought I would share some scren shots with all of you anyway.

It's always awesome to get good shots. But it's almost as cool to have interesting experiences. Too bad that you didn't have a macro option, that would have been amazing.

The wind is killing me this week. I hate trying to shoot in big wind. I guess I should look on the bright side. I'm not trapped in flood waters up to my eyeballs like Kevin....

The bag is limit to rec ,you have small manuel controll.But it make good results.
But I think for futures work a good housing is is a must.I think the weight is problem,
in stream I think EAW bag is imposible to hold stady.Light and motion my bee necst.

Good evening,

Tronde, an older version of premiere would likly run.

Perhaps a trial software of one of the consumer prograns like ulead would do the trick????


meryem, I appreciate your trouble with wind!!!! we arre on our second month of winds 20 to fifty clicks everyday. windiest spring I can recall sense new mexico spring of 75!!!


We have had a week of needed rain and unrelenting wind. Rain spoiled my trek last week to bad lands for prairie falcon footage. Had a trek planned for tomarrow, that is not going to happen as it is still raining and you might get in the bad lands with 4x4s but you'd definitely have to walk out.

Looking like my second option is going to be the only option!!!
