Rack focus on gimbal

You could get a FocusShifter, if that's what you mean: http://focusshifter.com/follow-focus-dslr/ . But it's generally not a good idea to touch your camera and the lever will shift the center of gravity ever so slightly. Indeed as said, the Aputure DEC is a nice system, but restricts you to EF lenses for M43 cameras of course. Cheapest way: squeeze your aperture to create a plane sufficient enough to have some wiggle room on tracking your subject and just keep you focus fixed and stay a steady distance from your subject. You an increase/decrease your distance to create out of focus as a tool to reveal something for example. Or... switch to a Canon with dualpixel AF and enjoy continuous AF.

Thanks for all of the replies. Really I just want to manually focus on the gimbal. I can almost do that now, but unfortunately I am not light enough on the touch. Focusing electronically would be ok I guess, but I much prefer another non-electronic way..
