A new innovative device has started its journey on Kickstarter, that has been designed to allow you to control the focus of your DSLR camera. The SnapFocus has been created by Brandon David Cole, to allow filmmakers to pull focus and steady the camera on the move, making it easier to achieve Hollywood production on a small budget.
The SnapFocus will work with almost any DSLR camera and any lens combination, says Cole. Check out the video below to see the SnapFocus in action. Cole explains how the mechanics of his design works.
“With a simple lever and cable system, the SnapFocus is really easy to use. You simply pull the lever on one side and your lens spins to infinity (focuses the lens far away). Pull the other lever and it spins to macro (focuses the lens close up). It’s an intuitive way to control the focus on your camera and since you don’t have to keep spinning and spinning a focus wheel, you can literally “snap” the focus into place or use it for smooth, continuous focus and turn your DSLR into an ENG rig.”
The SnapFocus is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think it is something you could benefit from, jump over to the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help SnapFocus become a reality.
