Follow Focus Devices - Focuses on Follow Focus Devices with Karl Horn from Cinetech.

Forget your wrist, learn to use follow focus wheels that reorient the direction of the focus dial to one that more easily fits the movement of the human body. They give you focus stops, so that you don't have to guess where your subject is. Just set up the a and B stops and go from a to B. No guess work. This comes in very handy in cameras that do not have numerical readouts for focus marks.
