PDMOVIE Live Air Overview

Remotely control your zoom lens over Bluetooth without the hassle of cables with the PD Movie LIVE AIR 1-Channel MOTOR MINI with Zoom Controller Kit from ikan. This kit includes a compact, single-channel MOTOR MINI lens control motor with a 0.8 pitch gear and a LIVE AIR Bluetooth zoom controller.

The MOTOR MINI has just one button for setup, automatically calibrates to your lens size, and is compatible with most DSLR or cine lenses on the market. It has a built-in 15mm rod port to mount on standard LWS rod systems, and a 15mm rod is included. It uses a removable 600mAh battery that offers four hours of usage time when its power-saving feature is activated, and an LED light displays battery status by color.

The LIVE AIR controller has a single zoom thumb rocker and a built-in battery which is charged by a micro-USB cable. The battery provides eight hours of usage time and twenty hours in standby mode. The controller can be affixed to any rod or pole up to 1" in diameter.

Both units have a Bluetooth range of 213', and the motor can also be controlled by the REMOTE AIR smartphone app to provide you with your lens information and zoom or focus controls. The motor can also be used with a separately available Bluetooth LIVE AIR focus controller. Two batteries, a battery charger, two micro-USB charging cables, and a camera shoe clamp are included.

Hey there, can this be used as a follow focus rather than for zooming?
Asked by: Carl
You need a different controller to use for follow focus. The zoom controller is not precise enough. I seem to recall they have a Smartphone app that might give you the control necessary for follow focus. I don't know if there's any latency involved in using the Smartphone app.

Can I mount under the lens? Is the rod clamp adjustable?

With the 15mm rod clamp provided with the system, you can mount the motor under or above your lens depending on where your 15mm rods are located. The clamp is unfortunately not adjustable.

Can the batteries be changed when they run out of charge, or do you have to stop filming until they are recharged?
Asked by: Roger
It would be hard to charge while shooting. But they charge really fast and last a really long time. For the price point, I am really happy with the purchase.
