Insanely Cheap DIY Follow Focus

$2.50 Follow Focus Assist Solution!! Cheap Awesomeness!! from Tony Carretti on Vimeo.

It seems DSLR users are looking everywhere to find ways save money on gear. Interestingly enough, Tony Carretti found a cheap solution for a follow focus at (of all places) a Bed, Bath and Beyond. Visiting to purchase a gift for his mother, Carretti found this $2.50 tool to assist with his DSLR.

I’m fascinated by all of the DIY ways people find to use their cameras. I feel like this field has more people taking power into their own hands instead of having their budget control their shoots.
