FocusMaker FM01 Overview

The FocusMaker DSLR Focusing Tool is a follow focus system that allows you to get fast, smooth, and accurate focusing on virtually any DSLR lens. The FocusMaker mounts on your lens and is comprised of a ruler with incremental focus marks, lens strap, sight, clip-on stops, and handles. It is lightweight at only 2.8 ounces and fits in most camera bags, making it ideal for small crews or single shooter setups.

The FocusMaker features a half-circle ruler that straps on to the focus ring of your DSLR lens. The ruler offers incremental markings for increased accuracy when obtaining focus marks. A sight mounts on the lens barrel and provides a fixed point for viewing the ruler's measurements. Focus points are marked using the clip-on stops. The stops can be mounted to serve as active hard stops or as passive stops for loose or intermediate focus points. Two handles are provided which attach to the ruler and provide smooth, jitter-free focusing. A travel pouch comes included.

Does this attach to the lens in the same exact place each and every time? I would like repeatable focus settings each and every time without set up and refocusing
Asked by: Kenneth
This cannot be attached in such a way. It will need to be adjusted when put back on.

This focusing tool will work on focus rings with a diameter of 2.48 to 3.58". It will work with mirrorless lenses as long as they are within this range.

question

It looks like this is a 70-200mm zoom lens. I use this lens on a 5D Mk4 to shoot video and discovered that I can zoom, but it takes several attempts to get it right. Looking at this accessory I think it may help smooth the zoom, what do you think? I suspect it may work for both focusing and zooming.
Asked by: John n.
It works well enough if you have some time to set it up before the shoot. I have had a couple of very dark set ups that I couldn't use traditional methods, tape, paint etc. to change focus and focal length and the Focus Maker worked great. Not something you will be using in a run and gun environment.
