How to Pull Focus with the REDMote

A recent post from Sean Brown shows the method of using a REDMote to pull focus. I’m on the fence about how much time this would save, as well as options for using glass – since it would require your lenses be either electronic, or servo-synched to the camera. In addition, for my Scarlet-X setup, I find things like the REDMote and Sidehandle to be superfluous and unnecessary. However, if you already own one, in addition to some electronic glass – then by all means this could be a handy trick to achieving critical focus quickly without doing a 1:1 zoom or using a tape measure. Check out the video below:

The funny thing is that there have been reports of the Canon Mounted Scarlets having backfocus issues. If the flange distance is wrong on the backfocus, it essentially means that either your focus marks on your lens won’t line up to where you actually are focusing, or precise pin-point focus becomes next to impossible. I’m currently preparing a post on this topic, however it would be interesting seeing if the back focus issue would affect pulling focus with a REDmote. Anybody know? Tell me in the comments.
