  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
  5. This is an analog MicroForce zoom control from Preston. It’s had a new knob installed a few years ago, and got a clean bill of health from Preston at that point. I’ve used it a few times over the years, but there’s now an identical one from the rental house in my show’s camera package, so this has just sat in the case. Includes 2 MicroForce to Hand Unit cables - one short, one 30’ (perfect for letting the DP run zoom off of a monitor without disturbing the 1st AC). Asking $750. Email me if you’re interested. willsvideo@gmail.com

    Micro Force

    Looking for a used Micro Force.
  11. At Preston Cinema, our products remain serviceable as long as technologies are available and we can source parts. As we stopped selling the Analog V+F Micro Force Zoom Control in 1999, we haven't had replacement boards for several years. Critical parts for these units have been obsolete for some time, and we've been unable to source suitable replacements. As a result, as of February 19, 2016, we can no longer service any Analog Micro Force Controls prior to V+F2. This includes Analog Film Only, 12/24V, and V+F Micro Force Zoom models. Similarly, there are no replacement boards for the Hand Unit 1, Transmitter 1, MDR1, Transmitter 2 and G3 transceiver boards for MDR-2s, Focus/iris units and Radio Micro Force Zoom units. Original parts and equivalents are mostly obsolete and due to our diminishing supply, the service of these products will be discontinued as of April 1, 2016. We apologize for any inconvenience and will continue to service our other discontinued products: Analog V+F2 Micro Force, V+F lens Control single channel motor driver, MDR-2 and Hand Unit 2 (without the transmitter.) Here is the full list of products that have or are reaching end of life: · Analog Film Only Micro Force Zoom Controls · Analog 12/24V Micro Force Zoom Controls · Analog V+F Micro Force Zoom Controls · Hand Unit 1 · Transmitter 1 · MDR-1 · Transmitter 2 · G3 boards for MDR2s, Focus/iris units, Radio MF Zoom units · UHF units · Micro Servo · Digital Lens Control · Power Pod · Heden M26T motor (serviceable by Heden Engineering in Sweden) If you have any questions please email or call us. Thank you for your continued support. Alanna Berkson Technical Sales Preston Cinema Systems Office: 310.453.1852 alanna@prestoncinema.com
  12. Microforce controller V + F Microforce to Hand Unit zoom cable (short) Microforce to Hand Unit zoom cable (25 ft) Hand Unit bracket $1500 total for everything All items work perfectly. This microforce, cables and bracket will work with all motors, hand units and MDR's. DM1, DM2, DM1x, HU1, HU2, HU3, MDR1, MDR2 and MDR3. I have done this and I have verified this with Preston that it is ok. For comparison, a new Microforce V +F3 costs $2350 new and a Microforce DMF2 costs $2750 new. Add in cables, brackets and tax, a new set up would cost about $3000-3400. Also, new prices on my remaining cables. $100 - Motor Cable. Straight to straight connectors. 36" length. $100 - Command cable. 25 ft. $50 - MDR Power cable to 3 pin XLR. 8 ft.
