DIY Follow Focus Adapter - $6 - For All Lenses

As many of you may already be aware of, Knoptop had shared a great idea to pull focus using a jar opener.  Unfortunately as he stated it wasn't suitable for smaller focus rings.  Well I have found a solution to that by simply using a Gear Tie by Nite Ize.  They are strong, flexible and very grippy.  As you will see in the video I demonstrate how I am able to attach it onto probably one of the worst focus rings ever, yet one of the most common lens around, the Canon 50mm 1.8 lens.  Check it out, Subscribe, Share and Like the video if you could!  Thanks for watching.

Here is one spot you can buy the one I am using:

Attach your LCD viewfinder to your Swivel camera screen!

So I came up with a simple way to attach your LCD view finder or LCDVF to the swivel screen on your camera or camcorder.  The main purpose for this was to avoid physically attaching a metal mounting plate to the screen.  Doing so would cause, in most cases, the user to be unable to close their screens properly inwards to avoid any damage to the display.  But the method I came up with allows you to firmly hold your viewfinder against your display using this simple trick.  Take a look and take care!
