TAAB is a Universal Lens Tab That Puts Manual Focus Control At Your Fingertip

30 Comments

Some lenses have tabs on their focus rings that allow photographers to precisely control focus with a push or pull of their finger. For those that don’t, TAAB is here to help. It’s a universal tab that can be used on most lenses, giving photographers greater manual focus control than simple focus rings.

The patent-pending TAAB is built out of ultra tough neoprene and grips your focus ring tightly without any screws, glue, or zip ties. It’s like a tight wrist band that slides onto your lens.

There are three different sizes: the Mini for rangefinder and mirrorless camera lenses, the Standard for mid-sized glass, and the Hefty for larger DSLR lenses. To find the right size, simply measure your lens’ diameter and find the TAAB that can stretch to fit that size.

TAAB is currently in search for dealers to distribute its product, which is set to hit the market in late Spring 2015. If you’re interested, you can place a pre-order through a form on the TAAB website.
