DIY Lego Friction Follow Focus + Tutorial

Submitted by one of our readers in the comments section [Thanks Jerry]. Here's an interesting video on a DIY Lego follow focus from YouTube member havok2. Small, Lightweight and stable. It is attached directly to the lens, and variable sizing helps to adjust for other lenses. Taking it even further, there's a complete 3D Rendered video tutorial on how to put everything together. Additional photos can be found via slideshow http://slideshow.havok2.imageloop.com/en/index.htm. To help you get a better idea, you can check out the video description, questions, and additional comments at the video page.

    That def would help, I was hoping it was just a kit but I guess you have to get each piece separate. If you ID all the parts on the Lego page def list them.

    Oooh, I know someone with an old VW beetle, I know they are good for chassis, maybe we could just cut and shut a little...

    That is brilliant, if I had not sold all my lego upon leaving home. But at the cost of Lego technic these days I think it's cheaper to buy the real thing!
