Tired of your assistant whining because they have to manually calibrate the motor? Want to use your BFD to focus two lenses simultaneously for 3D work? Got some digital motors laying around but can't afford that "other" system?

Well, this is your lucky day! The new BDR (BarTech Digital Receiver) is here! Go to my website, http://www.bartechengineering.com/ and click on "Digital Rcvr" for details.

Hi Steve,

I've never seen a Digifox (they are quite rare here in the States), but the auto-calibration is virtually identical to the Preston. And a BFD + BDR is over $2300 less than a DigiFox.

Hi Jim.

Yes, I know.. You have very good prices... I'm saving money to get a kit bartech soon... but, here in Italy, the dealer (in my opinion) haven't a good service... So, Can I order it directly from you in the future? Many bartech owners have spoken highly about you and your service! ;-)

I ready have an order list!

p.s. Maybe are you making also a new transmitter?

Best, Steve.

Hi Ben,

Please contact me off of the forum to discuss the ordering situation.

And I have no plans for a new transmitter. If it isn't broke, don't fix it.

Erm.... Thats awesome!

What motor do you recommend. I am used to using that M-Motor that I sometimes also hook up to my washing machine. What is a good value and strong digital motor?

Hi Jorge,

I look forward to hearing from Isabel. The BFD will not work with the Heden M28VP. It should work with the Betz BTM motor.

I would recommend the M-One Digital but you have lots of choices. Shop around!

Do you know if we can upgrade our analogue M-One motors to digital M-Ones? Otherwise; how much is a digital M-One?

How much is a package? One Bartech TX and a digital RX?
