Looks like a case of long time listener first time caller for me,


I was recently tasked with making sure the follow focus my school is looking to get can function both off and on our Stedicams. While I could easily locate an adapted plate for them to use when off the rig, I am having more trouble sourcing out a suitable LEMO cable for running the receiver's power while flying. Our current fleet is 2 Zephyrs and a Pilot, if I am correct in my research I need a 3-pin LEMO male to 4-pin LEMO male (using Ikan PD2 remote system). I would be greatful to hear any suggestions or if anyone out there has a good "go to" guy for cables of this sort. I know that it could be possible to fly with the V-lock on the sled but given our standard camera rig it would max the Zephyr out which I do not want to do if avoidable given the fact that a good deal of the users are flying for their first time with a real rig.


Thank you for any adice you might have.

Thomas, contact Alan Rencher or Terry West. There are others, too. Alan is a forum member, and if you search the forum for Terry's info, it will come up in old threads.
