Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Okii Systems FC1 USB Focus Controller
The Okii FC1 USB Focus Controller gives the photo and video enthusiast a compact yet powerful device that enhances the capabilities of HD video enabled Canon EOS Digital SLR cameras. Like Canon’s EOS Utility, the FC1 uses Canon’s USB protocol to allow control of a wide range of functions, but without the limitations and bulk of being tethered to a computer. The device is handheld, weighing under 5 oz. including batteries, and less than 3" in diameter. It is connected to your camera with a standard mini-B to A USB cable, and can be used as a remote control or attached to a rig using a 1/4"-20 mount located on the back of the anodized aluminum enclosure.
The FC1 uses the autofocus motor in lenses to control focus, even while recording video. This also works in any Live View modes, which can be useful for photography. The HDMI output can still be used in tandem with the controller, so the use of an external monitor is still possible. The nine other switches located around the central focus knob can be used to access important camera functions, such as video start/stop, digital zoom, saving focus points, and adjusting camera settings. The FC1 works great as a remote control for a camera mounted on a crane or jib, giving both setting adjustment as well as focus control from the ground.
The Okii FC1 is a very cool product. I typically don’t shoot too much video, but this focus controller makes me want to! There are a few different settings you have to tweak based on the lens/camera combination used, but it’s all laid out in the User Guide.
You will have much better results with higher quality lenses, so L-series is the way to go. You can get by with lower end, but keep in mind the FC1 uses the AF motor inside the lens. If you’re trying to use a lens that doesn’t AF that great, it won’t work very well with the FC1. The ability to adjust camera settings from the device is awesome. With that addition, even landscape photographers should consider!
