HI all

JUst a question, i know this has been discussed before as i found an old discusion but it was 4 yrs ago,
i was wondering does anyone have this system? if so how does it compare to a preston?
i am looking to buy a backup system and i like the price of this unit but i have never seen or even used this before.
apparently there where some issues with it perhaps they have been worked out?

Any favourable/unfavourable opinions?

Get a BFD for a backup.

Any follow focus that can blow a 10 amp supply fuse but not it's own 5 amp fuse has some serious issues

Hi Richard

I rent this system when I need 2 or more channels. I own the Digifox single channel remote from the same manufacturer (which I like very much BTW).
It has always worked flawlessly. I've used it both with Heden and Scorpio motors. Easy setup and calibration of the motors. I like the fact that you can choose between single and dual handset modes. This gives you separate remotes for iris and zoom/focus. One for the DP and one for the assistant.

Good luck on your choice!

Best,

Sven
