              And that's without the motor I guess.
              It's a rental thing, like most high end remote FF

                  I doubt rental would be that bad, depends how many units are available and the demand.

                  Be interesting to know how accurate it would be when used in conjunction with MoCo.

                    Snap Focus is pretty insane, very interested...... Would need some of the best AC's to even try to compare, I for one have been in many instances where I could use this type of focus.

                    Great post!!!

                      A good AC will cost you at least $500 a day, and even they blow a focus rack here and there.

                            Given the technology used (a few magnetic? distance sensors, a tablet and an interface to a FF motor), I'm sure there will be a Chinese/Eastern Europe knockoff within 6 months or so... after all, the $15k MöVI has $3k clones by now...

                              i love to begin to see the precise system.
