M1 Volt twitching

Recommended Posts

After 18 months of use I have noticed a twitch when holding lock off shots when using my Volt. It seems as if there is a kind of electronic movement generated I assume by the kit which shows itself as a twitch or maybe a 'heavy hand' look. Has anyone experienced this? I will be in touch with the guys at Tiffen UK tomorrow morning but and advice is welcome.

Thanks, Robert Carter

I’ve noticed some chattering if the batteries get low. Kind of a rude low voltage alert. 

I haven't noticed this Deke, but will keep my eye out for it. Thanks, Rob

Check to make sure the belt motors are tensioned. If they slack out at all it will cause a slight twitch. 

I've checked the belt tensions and all seems good. I think the problem is more 'electronic' in nature. Thanks for your comment though Kevin.

Any updates to share about this twitching?

I demo’d the Volt at Cinegear again. The Tiffen rep mentioned this might happen if the side to side adjustment on the top stage was off a little. Any feedback about this comment?  Also there were comments about the Volt box, if it’s not mounted properly with zero vibration possibilities it can also affect the performance consistency.
