DSLR photographers looking for an easier way to control Follow Focus shots might be interested in a system which has been designed by Daniel Bauen and Microfacturing called the FocusShifter.
The latest generation of design builds on the company’s previous lens/focus shifter that was designed back in 2012 and brought to life thanks to Kickstarter and over 550 backers. Since then the design has been refined and tweaked with help from the Kickstarter community.
Once again Daniel Bauen has taken to Kickstarter to raise the funds he requires to take the latest FocusShifter into production. Check out the video below to learn more about its design and features and how it can help you easily create Follow Focus photography.
FocusShifter is a follow focus that fits any DSLR camera lens. No extra equipment is required. FocusShifter is perfect for filmmakers, photographers, students, and anyone wanting to step up their production capabilities and add professionalism without adding expense. The original FocusShifter and the counterweight upgrade were both successfully funded on Kickstarter. Today there are thousands of FocusShifters in use all over the world. FocusShifter is perfect for DIY filmmakers and run-and-gun videographers. The new pouches help you keep your FocusShifter set in one place while on the go!
