Lots of people wonder how to set up their camera stabilizers, so that they can remotely pull focus on the go.
If you combine such a system together with your stabilizer, you will have complete freedom. You can move in and away from your subject, and still keep the shot in focus.
The only thing that you might not be aware is that most camera stabilizers will not take on the weight of this full set-up. This is especially a problem if you want to connect an HDMI splitter and a monitor (so that you can see what your DSLR/DSLM sees while sending a wireless video signal to your focus puller). To put a system like this together, you will also need to use some kind of a cage and rail system for your camera, which, of course, adds even more weight.
If your camera stabilizer can’t handle that much weight, you can now get a good and affordable (under $900) steadicam that can handle any camera set-up.
For a little extra, you can get the exact same steadicam kit I used (including the travel case).
Please check out below my video review of this set-up
If you want to know exactly how I connect my whole system then watch the following video
I use this Liliput monitor. It has both HDMI and SDI connections with HDMI and SDI splitters built into it. This allows me to use this whole set-up with any DSLR, and still be able to see what the camera sees while sending the HDMI signal to my focus puller. This monitor is also great because of other video functions, such as histogram, peaking, etc.
