LensShifter™ Focus and Zoom Grip
The little brother of FocusShifter, LensShifter offers an essential grip for more precise control of focus and zoom. LensShifter can be used independently or in conjuction with FocusShifter®.
LensShifter's superior grip adds production value and professionalism to your shots. The ergonomic design gives you the mechanical advantage necessary to achieve higher accuracy than turning the focus or zoom ring by hand.
Photo and Video

Use with Prime and Zoom Lenses
LensShifter is available in 2 colors popular with adjustment features on professional camera gear, red and blue. Photographers and videographers use LensShifter to fine-tune focus when using prime lenses.
Precisely control both focus and zoom when using zoom lenses. Have you ever grabbed the zoom ring, thinking you were focusing, or vice versa? The different colors allow you to easily identify and locate your focus and zoom controls.
With LensShifter, gone are the days of fumbling with your lens trying to find the focus or zoom ring, while losing that perfect shot. Intuitive controls allow you to respond to the action quickly.
Twisting your hand in awkward positions to adjust the focus and zoom and accidentally getting your fingers in the shot or in front of the flash will be a thing of the past. With LensShifter, the controls are moved to an easy to reach position. The ball at the top of the lever provides a comfortable grip.
Lensshifter uses the mechanical advantage of a lever to allow you to fine tune your focus and zoom.
It takes only seconds to install or remove LensShifter. If you are switching between lenses often, we recommend getting a LensShifter set for each lens to save even more time.
There’s no need to remove LensShifter when you are putting away your lenses. You can leave it attached and ready for the next time you shoot.
LensShifter includes a Balance Counterweight accessory. You won't have to worry about the LensShifter handle moving when you release it or move with the camera.
The counterweight stays securely on the belt when attached. It is easily removable if you choose not to use it.
The toothed belt matches the grooves on the focus and zoom ring, insuring a non-slip grip.
The tightness of the belt is adjustable to your preference, giving you ultimate control.
LensShifter is compatible with most DSLR, Mirrorless, Micro 4/3, and other interchangeable camera lenses with a focus ring outer diameter between 56mm & 98mm.
LensShifter vs FocusShifter. What's the difference?
If you are familiar with our FocusShifter DSLR Follow Focus and may be asking yourselves, "What is the difference besides the color?".
FocusShifter is a full follow focus set, which includes all the accessories that you would need to take a cinematic style focus pull shot. FocusShifter is primarily for videography work. Find out more about FocusShifter.
LensShifter is a simplified version that doesn't include the follow focus accessories. It's designed to improve the precision of focusing manually and adjusting zoom for both photo and video work.
LensShifter can be used by itself or in conjunction with FocusShifter. Example: If you are shooting a video, and want to setup a focus pull with the ability to hit the focus points precisely every time through multiple takes, then setup a FocusShifter on your focus ring. If you also need to make adjustments to zoom on the same lens, add a LensShifter to the zoom ring.
