Bartech VS DJI Focus

My analogue bartech is serial number 95. I purchased it used about 2 years ago on the forum. It was from the first year bartechs were being made 1997. Not only does it still work flawlessly, but it has held its value pretty remarkably. Mr Bartell's engineering, and just as importantly customer service are incredible. Having not used the DJI, I can't speak for it personally, but based on their other products I doubt this follow focus will stand the test of time at a professional level the way a Bartech does.

Thanks for reply. Its good reason for Bartech 1:0 "will stand the test of time"

But what about functionality- Motor speed, accuracy, delay and power motor with old lenses?

 

I hear that Bartech has one type unlucky motor-some one know which one?

Hi Marcin

 

I own 3 BFD. The first one bought in 2004. The last one in 2015.

I live in Argentina, and everytime I had a problem with the BFD (usually because Focus Puller let drop the transmiter, broke antenas or burning some integrated for a wrong cable connection) Jim bartell answer was inmediatly, and after 48 hours all spare parts were here in Argentina, below of the world.

The costumer service is amazing.

Just my experience.

 

Besto to all,

Thanks guys!

I will trust Yours experience and i chose a Bartech.

1. "will stand test of time"

2. Amazing service

 

but DJI is a prototype and i price speaks for itself - better user Bartech analog (around 3000$) as newer digital DJI Focus(2000$).

 

Anyone test a red digital motor?:

One important thing to remember when you shop for a wireless focus system. You will never use it, your 1ACs will. You need to make sure that they will know how to use it as fast and efficiently as possible. Bartech is straightforward, and everyone knows how to use it. DJI, not so much...

Have a look at Cinegears, they have superb customer service. We have been using the high torque motor version for about a year, and its been flawless. The high torque motor is built in Germany BTW. I have no commercial association with them .
