    Turns out that for the exteriors (where steadicam and talent were moving spontaneously), each block of pavement was 2.5 feet long so I used that as a distance gauge and it worked pretty well. Most of the other shots were tracking where the steadicam was at the same pace as the actors so just set a base focus measurement then adjusted for the drift between the two.

    The monitor was mounted on the camera and at least for the exteriors was absolutely pointless since there was so much movement and I couldn't always get a good bead on it, much easier to stand at 90 degrees to the operator and gauge distance.

    I also learned that the RED One is a POS nightmare of a camera.
    Glad it went well. Also count your lucky stars that you are just finding that out now....
