About DeluxGear

Focus hunt in low light is one of the biggest issues for all photographers. Have you ever been outside at dusk and missed the shot because your camera kept whirring, not knowing where to focus in the low light, or it focused on an object in front of the subject you wanted? Or maybe you were inside at a wedding reception, but couldn't get the detailed beading on the wedding dress because your camera lens was unable to focus.

You may have also wanted a shot of a hawk in front of a dim, dark background and not been able to lock in on it. The PinPoint Focus Assist takes the guesswork out of focusing in low light. It helps photographers instantly highlight their focus point. The PinPoint emits a narrow green light beam. The camera auto-focus zeros in on that small point and quickly acquires focus with accuracy.

The PinPoint uses a universal mount for any SLR/DSLR camera, securing to the tripod mount of the camera body or battery pack. It also secures to any lens tripod collar and to most tripod quick release plates.

Handy product in need of improvement

By

from Ann Arbor, MI  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Simple to use and necessary when focusing on solid-color surfaces and when focusing manually. Great about it is that it was made to be fixed to the camera freeing one hand. Unfortunately not made to be sandwiched between camera and tripod or to be mounted directly on camera's accessory shoe. Limited up and down movement of laser beam. One of several improvements would be to connect the product electrically to the camera so that it would be activated when the camera will focus on the subject and lock by pressing the AF-ON button or pressing the shutter-release button halfway.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why would notj any hand held laser pointer work?
ANDRE L  Possibly it would. Of course you'll need to mount it in some fashion to keep your hands free. I do people photography in low light, so it was not appropriate for me to be pointing a laser at them.
