I need to borrow a camera, any camera that has a lens that we can put a follow focus on for testing. It won't leave my shop and it doesn't even have to run, I just need it to test a new piece of gear on. If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it. I need it for Friday and will pay for the shipping. The only restriction is the lens must have mechanical stops so DLSR are out.

Please call or e-mail me if you can help.

Best regards,
Jim Bartell

Hi Jim,
You can use mine, Panasonic Varicam 2700.
I will be at Cal State Long Beach for a meeting at 9:30am.
I can stop by your house at 9:00am.

Cheers,


Ken Nguyen.

FYI Jim, plenty of DSLR lenses out there with mechanical stops (Zeiss ZE/ZF's etc).

I guess this means I'll have to hold off on getting new BFD! Jim's making new toys! ;)

First, I have a camera, Thanks everyone. And we are just tweaking some software so don't panic.
