Hi all, Photographer turned Videographer here. and I had a few questions about pulling focus that i was hoping some of you could give your input on. I have been using a Tilta Nucleus on Canon c200 setup for about 3 years now. We have done a few jobs with this setup but I haven't been around a big film crew where I would have seen a real pro pull focus. So everything is DIY and pretty self explanatory. However, we did hire someone to pull focus and they did a few things that after some research has still left me a bit puzzled. We were using Cinema Zeiss Lenses and they firstly matched the Tilta focus ring on the remote to match the lens foot by foot. But what really puzzled me was throughout the day he would measure his focus from camera to subject depending on the shot, the camera stayed relatively still in Z space for our shots. After researching why this was, I am finding it isn't good to "rely on your monitor for focus" because you can "lose your focus in the space of the 2D image. Can any focus pullers out there explain to me why you don't rely on the monitor when in todays age it seems like you see everything for what it is? -Any other tips are appreciated Thanks!

Hi. Now that the Black Magic have been on the market for a while, I would love to hear any experience shooting with this camera? I am going to shoot a short film soon, where this little camera could be very cool to shoot at:-). Thanks, Henrik A. Meyer www.henrikameyer.com
