    arm hanger for Scout cart

    Am i crazy or did I see a nifty arm hanger for mounting directly to a inovativ cart ? I swore it was a 16X 9 product but i cant find it again. I want to free up the table space and the stinger on the Hill dock is not in the right position to clear the tray.

    Teredek bolt 2000 gen 1

    Mike, I'm also using a Gen 1 Bolt 2000, and it does work well, Funny enough it will pass PSF on the sidekick , but will ghost on the old receiver. Just yesterday we had an issue with the transmitter, which has suddenly stopped passing signal on the BNC ,SDI pass through circuit. Unit is still transmitting as per normal, but I'm wondering how much af a nightmare it is to get that fixed. if i want to keep the sidekick , what are my options for compatabilty, ? i understand the 3000 and sidekick are not compatible, but the newer gen 2, 2000 is? AN d yes pairing the sidekick to the gen one is possible, but it is challenging.

    UK: Tilting low mode bracket

    and thats not how you use it. its a SR 1/2 bracket and the block you have threaded onto the rosette screw goes on the handle dovetail on the top of the camera.

    Walter Klassen Vest $3500

    if you knew what i paid for the first version ( with all the bells and whistles) you would have a meltdown. to its credit, its has been the best asset to my operating ever, i never went back......

    red epic run/stop for mdr 1

    Lawrence. they do sort of exist. Phil Cramer of Panavision toronto, built one for me but had to build a mini 3V circuit into the lemo. I know others who had burnouts but it always worked for me. there is the danger if the MDR is on unregulated power of zapping the Red, but i always run camera battery separate from the sled.

  15. Selling my personal Preston handset HU1 and MDR1. I have upgraded to the HU3 and MDR 2 and looking to consolidate my gear a bit. This has been a fantastic unit that has been a great workhorse tool for me. In 18 years I have only replaced two fuses and changed the iris slider this past Christmas,which got a bit loose. The main knob works like new. New slider has zero hours on it. The unit comes with a omnishot battery adapter and i will include two large Sony M size batteries with the purchase. The original charger and batteries are included which will likely need a rebuilt as they have not seen a charge in 5 years since I switched to the omnishot adapter. This unit does work on 12 and 24 V, there is no external 24v adapter needed as in the UHF versions. included will be: (1) P tap /safetap 12v power cable (1)Sony VTR run stop cable (1)Sony f5/55 run stop cable (1)Red One Run Stop cable (1)Epic Run Stop cable BNC (1)Epic run stop cable lemo (1) arri 3 pin run stop (alexa/amira) (2) motor cables (24") (1)jerry hill Uni clamp (15mm,5/8",19mm) (1)jerry hill 15mm clamp (1) FI &Z hand unit 1 (1) FI&Z transmitter module (microwave) (1) MDR 1 (1) omnishot sony M battery adapter (2) M style omnishot M batteries (1) lightweight no name charger (1) SONY lightweight charger (1) spare transmitter antenna (2) DM-1 digital motors (6) lens marker rings with studs (3) lens marker rings without studs (3) preston Nimh batteries for recelling (1) preston battery Nimh charger (1) spirilox bound manual (8) pico fuses for MDR driver board (1) Nanuk hard case Asking 5000.00 USD for the lot. will consider breaking up motors and MDR separately if kit does not get serious offers. This unit actually outperforms my current Preston for range. FAQ it cannot be upgraded to G4 there is no serial port for cinetape This would be a great unit for a newer op who needs a reliable focus unit that can be offered to production at a reasonable price, and gives you an upgrade path to HU-3 by re-using the motors and having the cables remade.
