I just wanted to have some tips regarding how to use them efficiently, how to do steaadicam moves. Also when pulling focus whilst a tracking shot going into a subject, how to you keep constant focus more so at t2.8 or shallower? As i have seen some many done professional and looks great. Any tips, or just measure things by the subject i.e tree and go off that regarding your marks or measure your lens distances for example if your lens shows 10-5-2ft and labell these on a disc. Th
