Midas Mount Offers Filmmakers SnapFocus Package Deal

To announce the release of their all-new SnapFocus Follow Focus System, Midas Mount Camera Support Systems offers filmmakers a limited time offer on their complete line of filmmaking gear.

CULVER CITY, Calif. -- Midas Mount today announced a limited time offer on their SnapFocus Follow Focus System, HitchHiker Shoulder Support Rig and SkaterailSlider Camera Slider. The slider, shoulder rig and follow focus, which will retail for a total of over $2,000 when they hit retail stores this summer, are available for a package deal of only $1,299, only at      

The SnapFocus Follow Focus System was a project launched in May of 2012 by Brandon David Cole, founder of Midas Mount Camera Support Systems and inventor of the SnapFocus Technology. The project raised $110,000 in under 30 days and created a buzz in the filmmaking world, attracting endorsements from Directors JJ Abrams and Jimmy Hayward and DSLR Personality Philip Bloom. 

“The Kickstarter experience was a great way for us to connect directly with filmmakers and literally kick-start our brand,” said Cole, “and this package deal is our way of reaching back out to filmmakers again before our product line hits retail stores this summer.”

Cole, a feature filmmaker and ex-professional BMX rider, 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. Midas Mount has sold dozens of prototypes over the past year to filmmakers all around the world.

Filmmakers can pre-order the SnapFocus Follow Focus System and HitchHiker Shoulder Support Rig as a bundle – which will ship by July 2013 - and get the 4-foot SkaterailSlider Camera Slider free – which will ship within two weeks of purchase. Go to and email the Midas Mount Team through the site’s contact form for the offer code.

“It’s an awesome deal and a great way for filmmakers to build an entire indie filmmaking production arsenal in one fell swoop.” Says Cole.
