          Comments about Redrock Micro microRemote Wireless Bundle:

          As an assistant camera, I add a lot of value to myself by including a wireless follow focus with my rate. I couldn't afford to purchase a preston or any sort of 3-channel system at the time, so I decided to buy the microRemote system so I could at least say it's an option.

          I was concerend about the previous reviewer's comments on wireless range, so I contacted redrock directly to see if they had any comment. They told me that all new units were now shipping with an upraded chip that gives a 1 mile line of sight range. I thought that was pretty ridiculous, but with that states spec I figured it would work for my needs. And it does. The new chip lets me go further than my Teradek wireless video signal will even go. I can blow through walls, houses, anything. I have yet to loose a connection, or even needed to change the channels on the back.

          The unit works great, and I ended up purchasing the run/stop cable for epic cameras so now I can trigger the recording of an epic/scarlet wirelessly, which is super nice.

          I really like the mapping feature of it as well, so even when I'm forced to pull focus on short-throw L-series lenses, the system expands the throw so I can actually make marks with the much longer through of the control unit.

              Mediocre focus pulls & wireless is poor

                • Poor Performance

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Redrock Micro microRemote Wireless Bundle:

                  The microRemote took about 2 1/2 months to arrive. Not 2-4 weeks as advertised. The handheld controller is smooth and is large and heavy. The lens motor stutters slightly when asked to turn slowly but is smooth enough to pull focus (usually). Slow focus pulls will reveal the motor's limitations. The motor is powerful enough to turn most focus rings. The lemo connectors and cables are well built. A screwdriver is provided, and necessary, to change radio channels or batteries.

                  The 'wireless' performance is almost useless. The 300 foot range the manufacturer claims is utterly preposterous. Regardless of the channel used (even in remote rural areas devoid of local 2.4Ghz radio signals) - the transmitter/receiver on the microRemote is v-e-r-y unreliable. At short distances (less than 30 feet) you must maintain a perfectly clear line of sight between both antennas, and even then it is still unreliable. If anything (a finger, the camera, your body, etc) gets near either the transmitter antenna or the receiver antenna then the wireless distance, for all intents and purposes, drops to zero.

                  Plan on getting a cable to use this 'wireless' follow focus because otherwise you will miss a lot of shots due to the severely anemic radio of the microRemote. Cables are proprietary and not easy to source - nor cheap to buy. A 30 foot cable will add at least 10% to the cost of the microRemote bundle.
