FocusMaker™ is an invaluable focusing tool for any DSLR filmmaker.
It serves both as a simple and easy to use follow focus system, as well as a device for making long travel rack focusing consistent, smooth and fast at very high accuracy. It fits on virtually any DSLR lens and provides an unmatched accurate overview of your focus points. Its flexible ergonomics allow smooth operation with less fatique and camera jitter.
It is compact (less than 15mm thick) and lightweight (less than 100 gram) and fits easily in any camera bag.
It mounts in seconds and can be removed even faster and requires no heavy rigs or extra gear.
FocusMaker™ is ideal for small the camera crew – especially for photographers working alone.
