  • hazers and sharpness

    Hey guys,

    When using hazers, do you find it hard to focus and get a sharp image? Everytime there's smoke on set, it's a nightmare to pull focus. What do you guys do? Maybe I'm using too much?

    Thanks

    I would measure distance when marking blocking and focus by numbers with a monitor just as reference. Also, CineTape if you can afford it.

      Yeah...I have to revert to my old pre-auto-focus photographer days and focus entirely by eye. Although using a tape is fine if the lens you're using has markings that are that reliable. Personally I almost never use them. Call me paranoid but I need to put my eyeballs on every shot and confirm it is as well focused as possible.

          I usually blame them too.
          For everything.
          I mean, it's just so much FUN!
          Nobody abuses MY focus pullers except ME.
