    ... without needing a remote follow focus? Our budget is really tight and I'm considering a Movi 10 for a job. I'd like to know if it's possible to set up a wireless follow focus system (or wired) from the FF motors on the camera to a FF wheel on the frame of the Movi?

    Thanks!

    I use the redrock finger wheel and love it. Especially with the new gimbal flex cables from redrock. Not ideal for long focus pulls that require precision but for fast run and gun readjustments nothing.

    Yeah, I mean I try and advise against it but we have the fingerwheel controller and actually it works very very well. I dont think its ideal because trying to frame up etc. and operate in general whilst also then having to worry about focus can be difficult but we have seen it being used a lot for event stuff that we are doing, especially the multi cam live stuff....
