Remote Follow focus GH5
  • Currently I don't know of any way to smoothly control GH5 Panasonic lenses via remote manual focus.

    Canon has the ability to control lens focus via USB port on camera, and you can buy on eBay devices that plug in and have rotary encoders for follow focus.

    I believe that the 2nd firmware update will bring USB tethering to GH5, if so it would be amazing to have similar solution.

    Let Panasonic know your thoughts here.

    Also- if anyone knows of way to do wireless - or wired follow focus on GH5 (without additional motors) please post.

  • This would be fabulous...

  • Hello, the CAMremote is supporting manual focus control through USB port on Panasonic GH5. Also newest Sony A7S3 is now supporting manual focus drive.
