These plates were designed in collaboration with Engineered Cinema Solutions, in Canada. They are available for sale for $145 CAD, or about $120 USD. You can purchase them now at Engineered Cinema Solutions or FilmFrog Media! Pair your VOU with a P-Tap VOU Splitter cable, and simultaneously power your VOU and HD Video Receiver (Teradek, Boxx) from a single P-Tap outlet on your focus monitor! This cable is assembled in Canada and available in different configurations starting at $200 CAD, or about $165 USD.
  5. Hi Everyone! I am selling my Preston FIZ3 3 channel remote focus kit. I have owned this for the past couple of years. And it has always been used only by myself, It has never been dry hired. It has worked flawlessly through that time and I have never had an issue with this reliable kit. I purchased this as a Preston FIZ II Kit, but upgraded it to the FIZ3 handset and also sent the MDR back to PCS to get the Blue dot upgrade and also to be serviced. (I can provide the receipt if needed) The Handset is 1 1/2 years old and also the Heden M21VE-L motor is only 2 years old as well. All the other equipment is a bit older but still works perfectly, as I have always taken great care of this kit. Im Looking for $18,000USD but I am also open to reasonable offers. In the Kit for sale Handset 1x FI+Z 3 Handset (#2803) 5x Premarked Disks (A,B,C,D,E in Imperial) 6x Blank Disks Microforce Digital 2 1x Microforce Digital 2 (serial #D25274) 1x Handset to MF Bracket Motors 1x Preston DM1 (#1791) 1x Preston DM2 (#2483) 1x Heden M21VE-L (#M21VE-3849) 5x Heden Gears 0.4,0.5,0.6,0.8,0.8 wide 7x Preston Gears 1x0.4 2x0.5 2x0.6 2x0.8 Misc screws for gears etc MDR 1x MDR-2 G4 Bluedot with 4pin serial port (#1192) 1x MDR-2 Cheese plate (Kar Wai Ng) Cables 4x Motor Cables (3x R/A to R/A 1x R/A to Straight) 1x Cinetape Interface Cable 2x Microforce to Handset Cables 1x D-Tap Power 2x R/S 3pin Power cables 3x R/S 3pin Camera Run Cables 1x Moviecam Camera Run Cable 1x Panavision Camera Run Cable 1x Serial to USB cable Brackets 2x 19mm Hill Brackets 2x 15mm Hill Brackets 2x 5/8' Hill Brackets 4x Hill D-clamp Bracket slider 4x Hill/Preston motor Rosetts 2x 15mm/19mm Colett 3x 5/8"/19mm Colett 2x 15mm/19mm Preston Dogbones Batteries 5x Sony NP-50 Batteries 1x Watson Two Bay Charger 1x Single Bay Charger Case 1x Nanuk 945 Black Hardcase Fstop 1x PLC fstop wireless WIFI 1x D-tap Power Cable 1x Panavision Power Cable Im also throwing in the F-stop wireless iris as well as I have not used it and it came with the original kit. I believe you can download the 'wireless iris' app and control a motor through your phone. This Kit also comes with 9x Kathmandu clear packing cells to keep the kit tidy. This kit is located in New Zealand. I don't mind shipping it to anywhere in the world. Purchaser pays for shipping. Payment through Paypal is best. I also have higher res photo files if needed, I can email them to you. If you have any questions or would like to get hold of me please contact me through email at davidsteelcamera@gmail.com Many thanks, David Steel
