Excellent condition Scorpio remote focus unit with motion generator encoder included. Includes 3 motors plus all the cables and backup cables you can imagine including a Scorpio MDR cable to an optional preston motor. Hand unit has had upgrades to the battery unit (Sony system), as well as a Preston antenna system. Also included are various motor brackets and extensions, monitor plates, optional pistol grip, 4 Sony batteries and charger. Recently serviced and inspected by ‘Cramped Attic Technologies’ of Vancouver.

A rarely used motion generator. The motion generator encoder is primarily used for creating the ‘Dolly in’, ‘Zoom out’ effect and vice versa, while still maintaining the same frame size. Automates the zoom and focus features with optional manual override.
o Encoder with locking arm and maffer clamp assembly (cable end attaches to Scorpio MDR)
o 24ft Kevlar belt (runs along dolly track)
o 2 modified maffer clamps (for the Kevlar belt)
o 2nd full size pelican case

A great value at nearly half the original cost, with thousands of dollars worth of cables and specialized machined brackets.
Asking $18,000 USD
