The 50 Dollar Follow Focus on Kickstarter

January 25th, 2012

way to adjust the focus on our DSLRs in a precise, repeatable
manner,” writes Wiley Davis, creator of the 50 Dollar Follow
Focus. “We wanted a device that performed solidly and
intuitively and we didn’t want to spend a lot of money on it since
we’d rather spend our hard-earned dollars on more lenses or food and
beer for the underpaid crews on our low-budget shoots. But such a
follow focus didn’t exist, until we made one, that is.”

The result is called the 50
Dollar Follow Focus
(FDFF) and it’s currently set up on
Kickstarter for funding. The funding goal of $10,000 has been met
and exceeded with a total of $28,871 going towards the project at the
time of this writing. That doesn’t mean you can’t still get in on
the action though.

A donation of $60 will get you in on
the first batch of 50 Dollar Follow Focuses – you get to pick one in
the color of your choice. The extra $10 will go to cover shipping
costs. If you go above and beyond that you can get multiple FDFFs
and even a clip-on handlebar moustache.
