There are many ways in which new technology can present itself. Most of the time, it adds a degree of convenience to the user and it can do so via an extremely complicating method or something which is simple and makes things a little easier.
The folks over at Microfacturing along with a man by the name of Daniel Bauen have come up with the Lens/Focus Shifter which is remarkably simple in design and usage and it can be attached any lens with diameters from 56mm (2.20 inches) to 98mm (3.86 inches). If you’re measuring the circumference, it can fit lenses from 176mm (6.93 inches) to 308mm (12.12 inches).
In essence, users will be able to use the focus marker board to mark ideal focus points which can then be shifted to smoothly with the Shifter toggle that is attached to the lens. For precise points, the Shifter has an arrow that can be set to match up with your drawn focal points.
The creators of this concept have collaborated with Kickstarter and are currently collecting pledges at a minimum of $1 but $10 is required to get one of these nifty gadgets for yourself when it releases around September this year. With 22 days remaining and $14,857 pledged so far, the project needs about $5,200 more to qualify for funding and the pledge packages below $45 have all been sold out.
The lowest package currently in stock is the $45 one that includes an extra Focus Marker Board as well as the privilege to vote for the device’s name (Either Lens Shifter or Focus Shifter).Each Shifter set includes the shifter itself, a focus marker board which can be reused with a dry-erase marker that is also included and a bag of black elastic bands to hold the focus marker board to the lens.
