  4. I’m finally moving out some of my old Preston gear as I make some upgrades. This MDR served me well through many TV shows, commercials, and features, and was babied in its life before I got it. I carried this kit (without a Hand Unit) onto many shows, and it proved valuable. If you have a Steadicam body on the show, leave this MDR on the Steadi body, and your focus puller just has to switch channels on the hand unit from your studio camera. My current show has gone all WCU-4, so I’m not getting enough use out of this to warrant keeping it right now. The MDR was firmware updated in mid-2017, and works beautifully with even the most updated HU3. This package has a goldmine of cables, more than in many rental units. There are over $2000 in cables alone in the kit, especially the sometimes hard-to-find originally $600 Cinetape interface. I paid $4000 for this package in May of 2016. Asking $2750 for the package with all cables. Will not part out. Email me if you’re interested. willsvideo@gmail.com - Preston MDR-2 with G4 Blue Dot Receiver Board (Updated Firmware 2017) - Cinetape Interface Cable (the notorious $600 cable) - RS Cables: - 2x Arri RS - Red Epic - Sony F55 - Red One - Panavision - Power Cables: - 3 pin LEMO (Steadicam standard 0b small) to MDR Power - P Tap to MDR Power - Arri RS to MDR Power - 12v Panavision to MDR Power - 24v Panavision to MDR Power 25 foot Command cable (HU3 to MDR hardwire) Also available as a kit with: DM-2 Motor, PAM Bracket (19mm) and cable for $4500 total (will not separately sell motor) Also available separately: Microforce V+F Zoom Control (analog) for $750 with 30 foot and 6 inch Microforce to Hand Unit cables
