It definitely works and is a cheap alternative to more expensive equipment that is made specifically for this purpose. I have used these in a few videos and they are much more convenient and smoother than having to manually turn the focus each time. I highly recommend using one of the specially made pencils in order to mark the focus stops on your wheel in order to have the smoothest transition possible.
Shop carefully, though. I paid a little over $12 for three of these a few weeks ago. Today they're more than $17 dollars a set of three as "jar openers" and more than $20 for just one as a "follow focus".
However, the little black piece barely keeps any tension in this thing, which makes it nearly useless when actually using it AS a jar opener. On top of that the silicon is semi-slippery, NOT grippy. I was able to open one commercially-canned jar of sauce with it, so I won't be sending it back, but on home canned items that were tightened before they cooled, I tried and tried with this item, and couldn't open the one I wanted.
Cue the husband. He got the jar open with no problem. I'm pretty annoyed about this purchase. The people who reviewed it for photography use are probably on to something, but I wish folks would review it for the INTENDED use...
Well, I bought one of these silicone twist jar openers and put it in my desk. It is small, takes up very little space and is readily available for me to open my soda without having to ask a coworker to do it for me.
This DIY type solution does provide a tiny amount of isolation if you're lucky enough to hit focus, but it's too sloppy. Longer lenses at low apertures (shallow DOF) missed 35-45% of the time for me if I tried to repeat movements. That might be acceptable for flower videos in your backyard. YMMV but I found this to be an interesting experiment only, not a solution.
Another option is to get a spider steady and brace your focus palm on one of the arms. This allows your fingers to change focus without getting your wrist, elbow or shoulder involved, and the movement can be more fluid with the camera tightened down to the steady.
Sorry, didn't try using this for opening bottles. Don't let this review sway you if you're buying it for its intended purpose.
It doesn't really grip on to the focus ring so I put a thick rubber band that I found at Walmart and then put on the Jar Opener.
It works but it doesn't stay on for too long.
The reason I give it four stars is because when I pull down the plastic piece to tighten it, it comes undone and falls.
To fix that, I had to take a rubber band and loop it through the plastic so it would add more friction.
This would be amazing if I had a lens with a large focus ring.
If you have the Lenses that I have then I would say get it just to have it, but it won't work for many things.
