“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.”
