Follow Focus With Gimbal?
Soon enough I'll be buying a 3-Axis Gimbal (most likely the Moza Lite) but I'm concerned about focusing. The most obvious choice to focus would be with a wireless follow focus system, but all these systems are WAY out of my budget.
What I'm wondering is if anyone has used a manual follow focus system with a 3-Axis Gimbal? And if so how did they do it?
I've been thinking if attaching a large focus whip to the gimbal and securing it near one of the handles of the gimbal would work?
I'm really looking for advice on this as I've searched the internet and can't find a single thing on manual focusing with a 3-Axis Gimbal. The prices of wireless systems are CRAZY, almost as much as the gimbal itself.
Hope someone can help me with this dilemma. And if I just invented using a focus whip with a gimbal, then you're welcome everybody!
