From our friends at Midas Mount:
“We are close to halfway done with Kickstarter fulfillment on the SnapFocus products. We spent way more money than we raised on Kickstarter redesigning and getting the SnapFocus and HitchHiker into production and this sale will help us get across the finish line.”

“The SnapFocus is an intuitive way for humans to interact with cameras,” said Brandon David Cole, a feature filmmaker and ex-professional BMX rider who married his passion for filmmaking and knowledge of bicycle mechanics when he devised a way to actuate focus with brake levers with the help of his neighbor Harry Gramig, a retired inventor and machinist.
The SnapFocus Follow Focus System consists of a set of brake levers and brake cables that allow filmmakers to control focus at the grip level of a handheld camera support rig without using a focus pulling assistant or losing camera stability.
“The SnapFocus technology sets a new standard for motion picture image capture,” said Cole, Midas Mount’s co-founder and co-inventor of the SnapFocus Technology. “It’s a breakthrough idea that will empower filmmakers with the ability to pull off Hollywood cinematography as a one-man-band indie filmmaker.”
