There's currently an auction for a Varizoom Wireless Follow Focus VZ-WFF system. Normally priced around $4300-$4600 dollars, this brand new item is on auction for a starting bid price of only $3k + Free Shipping. Not something i'm looking to buy, or your average videographer will buy, but a good deal if you just happen to be in the rental business. I can't seem to find any local rental places with a decent Wireless FF system. Besides the most affordable Jag35 Wireless Follow Focus system (currently unavailable) waiting on V2.0, what else is everyone using? Anyone remember what RedRock may be pricing their unreleased WFF at?
@missy - Radio Control, as in the toy cars which you control with a remote.
@Carlos whats RC stand for?
Guys find yourself a RC hobbyist and ask him to build you one. Probably way less than $1K. Those are just plain old RC controllers with servos in the other end. No science to it. specially the very expensive Chrosziel.
Varizoom has its appeal in being small.
The RR rep I talked to at NAB said their WFF would retail around 2k
@Darryl - Thanks. These videos are like 2 years old already..LOL. I think the WFF is in the same boat as their EVF.
Last video Brian stated about $1000.00 for the wired
and between $3000.00 to $5000.00 for the wireless.
Usually use a Bartec or a Preston wireless FF system.
