Please correct me if im wrong, but it seems Red are re-badging the Element Technica unit which was on display at Cinegear this year. 

 

Like Eric said, ergonomics of the handset were and still are terrible. One of the main things that let them down 

at Cinegear was that none of the people demoing the unit knew how to use it and couldn't answer simple 

questions about it. When I tried to fix it myself, it was stupidly over complicated to do anything and 

was annoying me, so i stopped caring and grabbed another beer! 

 

If that was the response I got at a trade show, imagine a focus pullers response when taking it on set! 

 

Think i'll hang onto my Preston!

Pricing is more reasonable than other 3 motor remote focus systems.
