DSLR Follow Focus

The Intuit Focus is a pretty cool looking wired follow-focus unit that uses a notched rubber belt (and small drive unit) to control focus on DLSR lenses. There's a demo video at Viemo.

Unfortunately, I can't find an actual website for the company/developer (there's just an email address on the Vimeo page.) A post on a forum suggested the price was going to be around 2,000 pounds. I think the idea is awesome, but the price makes it unlikely I'll get one...

Red Rock Micro is also working on a wireless follow-focus that (they hope) will cost about $500. They have a preview web page. Check also this interview from Cinema 5D which sounds exciting...with a caveat: "fingers crossed everything will come together".
