Redrock Micro microRemote Overview

When your camera is on a jib, a gimbal, or a situation where physical contact with the camera lens is not possible, the Redrock Micro microRemote Wireless Bundle allows for smooth and accurate focus adjustment. Included with this bundle are a Basestation which acts as the wireless receiver and power distributor for the motor, a digital Torque Motor, a Handheld Controller with hard stops on the handwheel, and two 24" flexCables for connecting the components.

The Basestation is the center of the microRemote system. It wirelessly coordinates with the Hand Controller and calibrates the motors to the lenses. Power is also distributed through the Basestation. The Digital Torque Motor can drive photo or cinema lenses, while its small size keep it unobtrusive, and its light weight won't unbalance your rig. The motor will attach to 15mm rods and can be adjusted to fit the diameter of your lens.

Automatic lens calibration (with manual calibration option)
Left- or right-handed operation
Lanyard loop
Powerful Redrock Torque motor works with both cinema and still lenses
Handwheel with adjustable hard stops
Camera run/stop feature (with appropriate cable)
Handheld can be used in tethered or wireless modes

Redrock Micro microRemote Reviews

Trash in the modern landscape

By Casey

I have well over a year and a half of REAL WORLD experience with this unit as an industry 1st AC. From the forest to a month long feature in the Arizona desert. Sure it may work a decent portion of the time on a sound stage but it does not have what it takes in exterior locations. The amount of wireless chatter I got alone from RF interference was inexcusable. The motor would rattle so hard when I wasn’t even activating it that the DP would look at me in confusion. Cycling power wasn’t enough most of the time. The motor would regularly slip on a lens that did not even require much torque. The hand unit can not be more than 20 feet from the camera with a direct line of sight or I would lose signal. What is this, 1995? If you leave the hand unit on all day you will have to go through 2 sets of batteries. The battery door is irrationally locked down with 2 small phillips screws as if a toddler is going to come across this thing. It is a professional tool, do not make it so hard to change batteries when I need to change them quickly. The Nucleus-M has its problems but it is half the price and I’ve had far fewer issues with it. I have gone through a ridiculous amount of headaches with the RedRock and I will never touch one again. We are past the age of LCS technology to revert back to it. I give it 2 stars only because it works sometimes

The base station blew a fuse on day 3 of ownership, and of course that was the day I was on location with it. I asked Red Rock Micro to ship me out a replacement part so I could salvage the rest of my shoot days. They were unwilling to do that. They had the part for 12 days replacing the fuse, and I never got to use it on the shoot for which I purchased it. It may be an OK product, (it worked great for 2 days of rehearsal), but the customer service at Red Rock is pretty bad. They obviously aren't too concerned about your shoot.

Picked one of these up a few years ago. Started having very bad range. I sent the MDR and the handset back to Redrock for repair. Came back broken in the same state.

Awesome product, manual calibration can be a pain

Redrocks microRemote is a solid, dependable unit backed by good support. I have had mine for four years. At one point, I accidentally damaged the antenna on the receiver and needed to replace it. Redrock sent me the parts either for free or for a very small charge. They have been very quick to respond to me when Ive had questions as well. Redrock also updates the firmware periodically. The v4 update added remote calibration (so you can calibrate lenses from the remote instead of from the receiver). I cant count how many times Ive forgotten to calibrate after a lens swap and then walk away from the camera. Or if Im working with an AC, I often handle the motor gear setup and auto-calibrate for my AC. If I forget, now my AC can do it remotely. Great! The firmware is at v5 now, so that shows their commitment to providing product value. The unit is solid and well built. Ive never had an issue with the power of the motor when using it with the Rokinon set or Canons CN-E series. The motor has a nice feathering to avoid hard focus stops. And you can crank the gain up or down. Ive also never had a problem using it at a distance, but the remote is usually pretty close to the receiver in my setups. The ability to switch directions from the receiver is great. I tend to use it backwards from how traditional ACs do, so this helps a lot. Overall, this is an excellent product that I intend to keep using for years to come. The only issue I have with the unit is that the battery plate requires a small philips head screwdriver to remove. This can slow things down during production, so I discarded the screws and used gaffers tape to keep the plate in place. Much faster!

Very simple, very reliable

This follow focus system is extremely simple to use. All you need is 2 AA batteries in the remote, and a power source for the basestation. We use this system on our RED Helium, and plug the basestation power cable into a v-mount battery on the back of the camera via the included D-tap cable. Once you connect the motor to a rail and plug it into the basestation, boom, it is up and running. Very reliable.

Double the fun!

The Tandem Bundle from Redrock is a serious kit to own! Both controllers are included for solo op or remote ac control, and loads of accessories. The carrying case is foam fitted, perfect for packing all of the gear on the  go, and securing it safely.

Best bang for buck!

Kit came with everything I needed. Wireless Focus has great range, but more impressive is the fingerwheel to pull focus on your own! Hard case to hold everything is a great plus, highly recommended!

question

Will I be able to use the start / stop function on the a7S II? If so, what cable will I need?The Micro-D HDMI output is occupied by an Atomos Shogun, if that has anything to do with it.
Asked by: Jay
I believe that a little bit of this info is very incorrect! (ASSUMING I READ CORRECTLY?) While I can't speak for the A7 (family) I remote start video with the wifi app ALL the time on my Sony a6300... I will admit that the Sony's like Android over iOS (which I use, of course). And that many functions become unchangeable until you get out of the app section of the camera. BUT remote Start and Stop (with limited monitoring) works and exits!) for the a6300... I assume it doe for the A7 family too!

question

is this rig compatible with Gh4 with lumix 12-35 lens ?
Asked by: Anonymous
This can be compatible with any camera and lens. The lens require a focus ring with a .8 pitch lens gear (or this can be added to a DSLR lens additionally). You will need a 15mm based rig to mount these components, and most importantly a power source that outputs DC power such as a V-Mount or Gold Mount battery and battery plate with a D-Tap output.
