  11. 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 G4 with latest firmware installed - 3 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 Pelican hard case This is a complete three channel Preston FIZ system in beautiful condition with the latest firmware and updates. Most importantly it sells with three DM-2 Motors - critical because many used systems for sale come with DM-1 motors which are obsolete and no longer serviced by Preston. This is a fantastic system. It was my personal system for my steadicam. An identical new system would go for $27,400. Asking $19,500.

  19. 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

  23. Hi, I'm selling my Preston 2 FIZ kit. It came with a Steadicam kit I bought a few months ago, and now has become surplus gear for me. I've used it a couple dozen times and works great. It does have the usual superficial wear and tear, but is a complete kit ready to go. Free shipping/drop off in Australia. I estimate it would be about $400-$500 shipping to the US. Please email with any questions. I've attached some photos, if you'd like any more detailed photos just send me an email.
