DIY HDSLR Shoulder Rig & Follow Focus

DIY HDSLR Shoulder Rig, Rail System, and Follow Focus from Brad Justinen on Vimeo.

This is an ongoing and unfinished project.  I'm not sure when I will be able to finish so I wanted to get something out there for people looking to build there own setup.  


The gears for the follow focus are from an Erector set.
The lens gear is a small drive belt from an old Xerox
The lens gear screw clamp hardware is from a quilt hoop

good video with good song hahaha.
I set up a Rig with the Atomos Ninja-2 on the Nikon D4. <br>Nice Rig! <br> <br>From my blog: <br>Once set up all I have to do is start Live View (in video mode) and start the Ninja-2 recording. When I cycle the Live View button on the D4, the Ninja-2 starts recording when Live View is on and stops when I shut it off. Each time the Ninja-2 creates a new file for the next take. I turn on the Focus Peaking to ensure perfect focus and it stays on the whole time (does not reset when Live View is cycled). Perfection! <br> <br>Check out my rig <br><a href="http://vigorotaku.blogspot.com/2012/11/atomos-ninja-2-on-nikon-d4.html" rel="nofollow">here</a> <br> <br>Dan at Vigorotaku
