  • 1Description

The Wired PD Movie Remote Live Multi-Control System with High-Torque Motor from ikan allows you to pull focus or zoom using a wired controller grip that you can attach to a pan handle, shoulder rig, camera stabilizer, or even a jib. The high torque motor is suitable for use with large cine-style lenses or lenses with stiff lens rings. The handgrip features a knurled thumbwheel for controlling your lens. It features two speed settings and you can set A/B focus stops for custom focus points or when you are using lenses without built-in hard stops.

The handgrip incorporates a non-removable battery that can power the motor for up to 10 hours, and it is equipped with multiple rosettes for flexibility in mounting. The system requires only the press of a single button to calibrate your lens. The system includes a 15mm sleeve that adapts the 19mm rod clamp so you can mount the motor on a 15mm rod. The system fits in a soft-sided clamshell case with custom cut foam.

Handgrip
  • The handgrip incorporates a knurled thumbwheel that you use to actuate your lens.
  • The hand controller attaches to removable clamp that can clamp to circular rods and features a clamping range of 14 to 40mm.
  • The included 4mm Hex key allows you to adjust the position of the hand grip for left or right operation.
Motor
  • This unit comes with one high torque motor, which features 30% more torque than the standard motor.
  • The motor includes a standard 0.8 cine-style gear and will also accept optional PD Movie gears.
  • It features a 19mm rod clamp, and the included adapter allows you to mount the motor on a 15mm rod.
  • The motor bracket features approximately one inch of adjustment, allowing its position to be adjusted along the bracket using the included 2.5mm Hex key.
Functionality
  • The system calibrates to your lens and allows you to set near and far focus stops for working with lenses that do not feature hard stops.
  • The system packs into an included soft-sided clamshell case with custom foam.
Battery
An integrated li-ion battery provides up to 10 hours of operation.

    Wired PD Movie Remote Live Multi-Control System with High Torque Motor is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Decent Follow Focus. I bought this follow focus to use when i stedi-op by myself or dont have an a.c. to pull focus for me. it has a really nice grip to it and the focus wheel is placed in a comfortable position to operate with your thumb. The on-off button works fine, but the function button is a little difficult to learn and it takes time to program easily but once you know it, it becomes second nature. one other thing that i find somewhat annoying is how long the rosette clamp is. it would be nice to have a shorter arm for the gimbal on the steadicam. Overall, this is a convenient device that is pretty adaptable for an array of different situations.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for some uses, but not for a quiet set This system does what it's supposed to do, but unfortunately it was a lot noisier than I expected. The unit emits a very audible whine when adjusting focus, and the sound of the gears on the lens is unusually loud. At its very slowest function it's passable, but if you try to adjust focus quickly the noise kicks in. There's no way this noise would be acceptable on a quiet set, so I had to return it. I don't think there's another product on the market that fulfills this specific need, so I'm a bit disappointed. But if the noise issue isn't a thing for you, it's a great product and very well made.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best match for run and gun style shooter and Ronin-MX I buyed this because I thought it will match and work nicely with my style 'run and gun' shooter, and also with my dji ronin-mx.. After I test when the package came, it does works very well, but the motor for me it's a little too heavy than I expect, the weight is 0.5 kg. I need put an extra counterbalance on my back ronin mx when I use FS7 with prime cine lens... But overall, it works and I love it!!
