  8. Complete Preston FIZ System w/ HU-3 & MDR-2 for Sale A Complete itemized list and photos below, but highlights are: - MDR-2 G4 with latest firmware installed (3-channel Motor Driver) - HU-3 with latest firmware installed - Digital Microforce Zoom Controller and Brackets - 6 batteries and 2 chargers - Three (3) DM-2 Digital Motors - PAM Brackets and Arms for all motors - Complete set of all motor cables, run/start cables, power cables - Beautiful custom hard case by Master Cases This is a complete three channel Preston FIZ system in beautiful condition with the latest firmware and updates.

  11. hey yall im about to sell an OG preston 1: HU1, MDR1, etc. Someone asked if they can control iris with a single channel preston hand unit. im pretty sure that this is not possible, but does anyone know for sure? I know that there is a small iris wheel that can be hard wired to the HU1, but curious about wireless iris control. have a good one brett.
  12. [Complete Steadicam System] The time has come for me to part ways with my starter steadicam rig! I bought the system about 2.5 years ago and it has done me well. The arm was recently serviced by Tiffen. The sled recently serviced electronically and mechanically by Terry West and Robert Luna so it is up to specs! This is a fantastic starter package for someone looking to get started with a pro rig. Sled, monitor yoke, dock, and various bits and pieces come in a standard production hard case. Included is a universal mounting plate. The sled is all upgraded internal HD and 24/12v internal power wiring. There's also an analog BNC and HD BNC that runs through the system. 2 Anton Bauer battery mounts have been added as an upgrade to the sled for power. Cam jam monitor arm with yoke is a must have. Has greatly helped with my rig balancing and switching back and forth from low mode. You simply just flip the monitor and it doesn't change anything with the rig's balance. The yoke fits pretty much any monitor you'd want to put on it, but additional spacers may be required to fit the different monitors out there. I have spacers for a SmallHD DP7 that I will include. Most will say the Master Series sled doesn't fit onto the IIIA arm, and you are right! Luckily I got a new post from Robert Luna that makes the 2 compatible. Works flawlessly. Ultra II vest shows some signs of regular use, but is still in great working condition. Safety release works perfectly, socket block is undamaged. Bartech analog unit has been fantastic. Includes a hand unit, receiver, motor, and various power cables, motor cable, etc. Anton Bauer LP2 Dual Gold Mount charger with 2 HC Dionic AB batteries. Both were recently sent back to Anton Bauer to get re-celled. The batteries are in perfect working order. See below for a list of what's included. There are a few things I didn't talk about here. Included: -Master Series upgraded HD sled -Docking bracket -Low mode bracket -Camjam monitor arm with yoke -Various BNC cables, tools, miscellaneous bits and pieces -Hard case for the sled, docking bracket, cam jam monitor arm and yoke -CP IIIA arm -Allen wrench for adjusting the arm tension -Rain cover for the arm -Master Series sled compatible post for IIIA arm -Long post -Bag for the arm -Ultra II vest with socket block (can be switched to either side of the vest) -Soft bag for carrying the vest, arm, rain cover, and Mitchell hard mount -Mitchell hard mount -Bartech analog wireless follow focus receiver -Bartech hand unit -Wireless follow focus motor -15mm rail adaptor for motor -Power and motor cables for Bartech -Bartech system carrying case -Anton Bauer LP2 dual gold mount charger w/power cable -2 HC Dionic AB batteries Total is $24,400 This is practically everything you need in order to get operating. It's also a fantastic back-up rig. Please contact me if you have any questions. Buyer pays shipping costs, PayPal (or any other money transfer) fees. I'd prefer to do this over PayPal. Bill of sale will be sent to buyer. If you refer someone else (who actually ends up buying the system, that is) I am willing to pay you $300. So please refer! All pictures are of my equipment. No stock photos or anyone else's gear other than mine pictured. Photos (including photos of the Bartech): https://flic.kr/s/aHskR4sU77

  20. When using a remote focus device for cameras on a Steadicam, what is your preferred brand? Do Steadicam operators need to worry about the weight of the controller and motor like on a Movi? Are operators still using Bartech or are most using CMotion or the Arri CForce mini motor? We carry Preston Single Channel and FIZ units, but they are too heavy for most operators. We have one Arri CForce mini motor that can be used with our Arri SXU-1 controller or by itself on the Arri Mini. Are there any brands that Steadicam operators would like to see carried by a rental house? Thanks everyone! -C

  25. hey yall i have been loving and using heden motors for quite some time, as well as Preston DMs, but recently was thrown a Betz motor and liked that the cable could run flush with the motor itself, just keeping it more streamline and less poking out at anything. i didnt have a chance to put it through the paces, so i dont have a good sense of its capabilities when it comes to bigger lenses, tight barrels, cold days, etc. Does anyone have any notes or experience with these? I am in the market for 3-4 motors and would consider throwing one in the mix, but frankly Id be very happy to go with Heden again. Ive gone through the forum and theres little to nothing on these. Any experience using these motors with a CMotion, Chrosziel, or Preston that would entice or dissuade me from using? Also, any idea of price? And are the only serviced in Germany? Also, how does the M21VE-L perform? A thread was started but with no responses. If I get some more Hedens, itll probably be 1xM26 & 2xM21, but would entertain the L for an Iris motor or slick barrels. Is it just a smaller M21VE? have a good one! brett.
