Rangefinder Cine Adapter offers single focus for Anamorphot owners among others
The second product revealed by SLR Magic today is referred to as a Rangefinder Cine Adapter. Additionally, the accessory is described as a special optical product with built-in follow focus capabilities.
It can be mounted onto some lenses in order to override the focus settings of the lens in question. This way, photographers and videographers will get superior focus control which is usually found in professional cinematography products.
The manufacturer has confirmed that the optic will also offer single focus capabilities to users of the Anamorphot adapters.
SLR Magic promises that the Rangefinder Cine Adapter will deliver cinema-like manual focusing capabilities on regular optics. This unit will also be on-display at Cine Gear Expo 2015, while its release date is set for sometime in Q3 2015 and its price at $599.
