Can one turn on/off auto focus without first focusing at minimum focus?
Asked by: Philipp
The PDMOVIE LIVE AIR 3 Smart LiDAR Wireless Focus Lens Control Kit PDL-AFX-S/PDL-AFX-RA-S must rotate the controller to the position where it stays to activate or cancel autofocus. Therefore, PD Movie generally recommends that users only set 4 autofocus lens data, leaving a blank channel for pure manual wireless control, which will not be interfered by the controller staying at the position of the nearest focus point. If you want to switch between manual and automatic control through button commands on the controller, or motor, it is not possible. In essence, it also does not support completely seamless switching between manual and automatic. In addition, there is a new model being release PDL-AFX-RA-SP next month which is a purely manual wireless control mode, which can be set independently.

Will a matte box block the view of the Lidar camera?
Asked by: Ashton
That would depend on the size of the matte box and where you mount the PDMOVIE LIVE AIR 3 (BH #PDPDLAFXSMRT), but yes, in many situations a matte box could interfere with the lidar functionality.
