Oh yeah that's a good one. I think it's possible to programme this onto the cmotion cpro or the WCU-4, if they can do something similar with a DOF pull with the cinefade, I'm sure they can be programmed to keep a certain exposure, maybe?

Hello, I had that problem a lot, in Situations where I get a Startstop and an Endstop, I put the Iris on the Zoom Stick on my Handunit and limit the Lens to the Stops and choose the (zoom)speed on the Handset for the pull. So I just have to Push the Button at the given moment. Works for 95%.

Such a good question.

ive Always struggled with doing an iris-pull. Thats something my brain cant handle, one hand to focus and the other do iris.
I know there are loads of ways to fix it, but in reallity we do it 90% of the time.

So i would love to have some auto-iris. Maybe a bit like the Cvision where you can track a certain point. Lets say, a face in the frame and keep that  as the main exposure. Would be awesome if you dont need an extra person or handunit to do the iris.


Or does this already excist…..

Or maybe just a user button on our hand unit with an "iris auto rack" function. It would be cool to have an automated iris pull from T-stop A to T-stop B which could take as long as we want it to last. Then whenever we pushed the user button the iris would automatically start moving. I've found myself in that situation when switching from interiors to exteriors or from tunnels to open roads. 80% of the times the 1st take was bad because my hands just couldn't move the slider and the knob while pulling focus and caring about the exposure at the same time :(

I guess you mean something like this, right?


I just found that on the internet but yeah, the Idea of having a "Frame marker" with a laser lighting the edges of the frame would be amazing. With the push of a button you'd just show everyone where the limts are. The only issue would be programming every side of the laser whenever we switch lenses or we apply framelines, but I'm pretty sure that the device could be mounted on top of the mattebox (with 4 individual straight line lasers and 4 adjustment wheels to position them).

Started out as a focus puller 8 years ago, I shot movies and commercials in Italy, Spain, Turkey, Uk, Bulgaria, Morocco and USA. Love everything camera related, gear porn and sharp lenses. Sharpness is not debatable.
