The Lens/Focus Shifter is a lens mounted follow focus which claims to offer thrifty film-makers and photographers more precise control over focusing
The Lens/Focus Shifter comes with a marker board which attaches to the lens with an elastic band
Users of the Lens/Focus Shifter mark focus points using a dry-erase marker and then quickly switch between them by moving the shifter
Adding clips to the marker board also means users can add 'hard stops' for focus points that they want to move between
The lever is moved to give more precise control over your focusing than you would have with your bare hands
The Lens/Focus Shifter works with any DSLR lens with diameters from 56mm (2.20 inches) to 98mm (3.86 inches) - meaning it will be equally usable on a nifty fifty or a 70-200mm 2.8 lens.
The Lens/Focus Shifter is also said to be of benefit to photographers by improving manual focus speed and accuracy
The Lens/Focus Shifter consists of a lever which attaches around the focus ring of your DSLR lens via a toothed rubber gasket strap and a marker board which snaps into place with an elastic band
The grip of the Lens/Focus Shifter can be loosened or tightened by spinning the ball at the end of the lever
Modern DSLRs can shoot some pretty impressive video footage, but unfortunately their small and often fiddly focus rings aren't quite cut out for creating cinematic masterpieces which require smooth and accurate focus. The Lens/Focus Shifter is a lens mounted follow focus which claims to offer DSLR film-makers and photographers a professional solution to this problem … on a budget.
