Quickly and easily mark two manual-focus points on your DSLR. Slide reasonably gracefully between foreground and background subjects in your video shoots. What these lack in clockwork grace of an gorgeous but expensive, geared follow focus rig, they make up for in portability, speed, and price! Why rubber bands and not clips? Simple. Look through your camera bag. Look at all the different sizes of lens barrels. A plastic clip (even a slightly adjustable one) will fit some of your lenses, but not all of them. An elastic band will fit all of them. That, and clips are delicate and bendy. Think of a wishbone. Now think of a wishbone rattling around in your camera bag. The markers are really easy to use. You'll need two elastic bands (not included). Stretch one band around the focus ring, and slip one of the two non-tilted markers in place, with the band tucked into the cutaway notch. (There are two non-tilted markers, because some cameras have narrow focus rings.) Pop your camera into manual focus mode, and set your focus on one of your subjects. Stretch another band anywhere else on your lens's barrel. Just be sure it's on a part that doesn't move, relative to the focus ring. Slap the titled markers into that band, leaning towards one another. Focus on one subject, and slide a tilted focus marker to line up with the focus ring marker. Focus on another subject, and repeat. See the prototype photos for an example of what the markers look like when in use.
