In this #diymonday video I am building a wireless remote focus puller rig for my Zhiyun Crane 2 with my Panasonic GH5 mounted with the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8. This makes a great combo, however controlling the gimbal and focussing at the same time, if actually quite hard to do and leaving the focus pulling to another person would make it a lot easier. I have found out that with the Panasonic Image App you can use the Remote view to see what it is filming plus also control the camera with the exposures and stop and start recording, but the best thing is that you can still see the focus peaking over the remote view making it quite easy to view the focus, also with the Zhiyun Crane 2 you can set AB point to make it very easy to rack focus between two objects.
