  1. Used Preston DM2 Motor for sale Serial Number 2682 Perfect working condition $2000.00 Richard 310-944-4367
  2. Hi all, First, this is a great community. Happy I found it googling. I've lurked for a little while and the wealth of insightful posts is great. I have a Defy G5 gimbal showing up tomrrow that I am using with a 5D Mkiii and a RR wireless follow focus. It's going to be fun but I need to help with powering the follow focus. I am looking for a lightweight solution to mount a battery somewhere near center mass on the gimbal. The main rod is 20 or 22cm...I'll measure tomorrow when it comes in. I may have a friend 3D print some sort of carrier or integrated bracket for that. My main hurdle now is ordering the actual battery/charger. RedRock has this on their site: "Please Note: External power via p-tap power source is also required for proper operation." So they also recommend something like an Anton Bauer with a ptap/dtap, AB, or vmount with a bracket. Because a lot of this is new lingo for me, could someone quickly distill the major differences between those battery types. I know a couple may actually share connections but after a couple hours of research I'm still scratching my head - a bit. I have a friend who uses IDX batteries with his RR microRemote. He has a 7s and 9 with a bracket. If anyone can share a link to some batteries that would fit that application I would really, really appreciate it. How are guys with the Movi powering their followfocuses? Finally, here's a picture of the gimbal with a remote follow focus and an external battery pack. Can anyone reverse engineer what is going on from these angles? Thanks.

  11. Hello all, I am a steadicam operator who is still somewhat fresh to Los Angeles with a steadicam flyer LE. So far things have been a little slow but I am getting there. The one thing that seems to drag me down into the mud over and over again is follow focus issues. I have lost more jobs than I can count because I simply can't afford to just go out and buy one. I took a minimum wage job at a studio to subsidize my income until the steadicam can provide at least minimum wage earnings. I've tried setting up my rate so that I can rent one for each shoot out of pocket, but since I cannot consistently have one handy it shows in my reel, who in turn will turn me down. Does anyone have any sort of advice on the matter? This literally eats at me every single day, sometimes makes me depressed about the whole issue. I'm not sure what else I can do at this point, but I love steadicamming way too much so I have no intention of ever giving up. I've considered taking out a loan, but I'm afraid if things go sour I wouldn't be able to pay off the loan without starving.

  13. Hey Guys and Gals I looking for a single unit Bartech system. Analog is fine, with out motor ok but would prefer a M-one. Thanks Brian hartsteadicam@yahoo.com
  14. Hi guys, I'm new and I'm not an expert, but I'm trying to find a good-but-cheap follow focus for a Blackmagic Cinema Camera mFT 2.5K. This is my list of preferences, and I hope in your advices. 1. Engineerable: FocusShifter (50$) http://www.focusshifter.com/follow-focus-dslr/buy/ This is my first choice because it's so simple and so effective, and the minimal “rubbery” backlash seems useful to smooth focus changing. But I fear that the elastic band that fix the FocusMarker panel can stress the lens. Am I thinking wrong? 2. HONDO Garage: EverythingYouNeedPro (239$) http://www.hondogarage.com/index.php/pr ... u-need-pro 3. D|Focus: D|Mount_Bundle (240$) http://dfocussystem.com/d-bundles/d-mount-bundle Third choice (perhaps screwed upside-down to the top of the BMCC). It's light and cheap, but I don't like that the marker doesn't face directly to the user. 4. Edelkrone: FocusOnePro + Rods + CameraPlate (600$) http://edelkrone.com/e-store/61-focuson ... 80408.html Last one... even if I must admit that I like this more than the D|Mount (and FocusOne's marker face to the user!) but it costs more than double! Any advice? Thanks
  15. I had a problem with my Hocus Focus wireless FF this weekend. I have had it for about 2 year now and its been faultless up to now. For me it's an essential bit of kit when I'm on Steadicam. However on Sunday it broke down. Luckily the shoot went on with a wider lens, stopping down for more DOF and using more sideways movements rather than going back and forth. The shoot was on Saturday evening and I tried to get in touch with Pete (The owner of Hocus Products) via email and mobile. I left a message as his answer machine was saying he was returning from NAB that same day. About half way through the shoot I got a call back from Pete straight off the plane I guess. He suggested a few things to try, but to now avail. I asked if I could pop over and see him to do a repair or replacement unit for my next shoot which was more important. So earleir today I met up with Pete. He repaired my unit while I waited and gave it a good look over and now its as good as new with a few extra free marking rings thrown in for good measure Absolutely fantastic service from a fab UK based company. While I was there I had a look at the new Axis 1 unit which looks like a major upgrade to the original unit that I have. I believe it should be shipping in a few weeks. I'm seriously considering ordering one and keeping my original unit to do iris pull when needed. Overall I'm very chuffed Surinder.
