Hi guys, I'm new and I'm not an expert, but I'm trying to find a good-but-cheap follow focus for a Blackmagic Cinema Camera mFT 2.5K. This is my list of preferences, and I hope in your advices.
1. Engineerable: FocusShifter (50$)
This is my first choice because it's so simple and so effective, and the minimal “rubbery” backlash seems useful to smooth focus changing. But I fear that the elastic band that fix the FocusMarker panel can stress the lens. Am I thinking wrong?
2. HONDO Garage: EverythingYouNeedPro (239$)

3. D|Focus: D|Mount_Bundle (240$)
Third choice (perhaps screwed upside-down to the top of the BMCC). It's light and cheap, but I don't like that the marker doesn't face directly to the user.
4. Edelkrone: FocusOnePro + Rods + CameraPlate (600$)

Last one... even if I must admit that I like this more than the D|Mount (and FocusOne's marker face to the user!) but it costs more than double!
