PD Movie PD1 & PD2 Remote Air Wireless Follow Focus System
ikan's Remote Air Follow Focus One HT PDMovie How To Video
The Remote Air Two (PD Movie) Dual Channel Wireless Follow Focus System with Standard Torque Motor from ikan allows you to pull focus and iris/zoom remotely from up to 300' away. It operates on the 2.4 GHz frequency and allows you to select from 20 channels for best transmission/reception. The standard torque motor is good for use with primes, lightweight zooms, and infinitely rotating DSLR style lenses. The remote Hand Unit/Transmitter unit features an OLED screen with a blue readout that displays information confirming your signal settings and battery condition. The system includes 2 x motors, and the handwheel can be used to control both of them, automatically calibrates your lens and maps the rotation of the lens to the handwheel, providing a consistent workflow, even when using lenses with varying degrees of rotation.
You can adjust the focus stops, and when you are using lenses with infinite rotation, you can program in the near and far focus stops. The handwheel incorporates a rechargeable Li-ion battery, while the motor requires external power, which can be supplied by the included P-Tap cable attached to available batteries. The motor and receiver units incorporate 19mm rod clamps, that feature about an inch of adjustment. The system includes 15mm sleeves that adapt the 19mm rod clamps so you can mount the motor on 15mm rods. The system fits in a water resistant polypropylene hard case with custom cut foam, an o-ring gasket, and pressure relief valve.
The system features a three-hundred foot line of site range, although it is unlikely that you will need to pull focus/zoom/iris from three hundred feet. However, a signal powerful enough to work from that distance makes it unlikely that you will drop connection during a.
