I am wanting to see who out there owns and rents a Preston Gimbal Micro Force.  I might have a need for one coming up.  I have an MDR2, so I'm not sure if they are compatible, or if there is an older model that exists.  

 

Thanks for any input.

Aaron,

There are two models: an older one that uses its own digital motor controller (http://www.steadicam...showtopic=20644) and the new one that preston sells that uses the MDR3's analog input port. The new one is not compatible with the MDR2 or 1.

Thanks, Jarrett. I figured that would be the case with their current model. If that's the scenario with their previous model, I might be better off getting ahold of a G-Zoom since those are more widespread.

If you have a controller, I have a betz box that allows you to use a fuji controller with a digital motor for zoom or focus. Let me know if you want to play with it or try it. I am not using it as of now. Shoot me a text.
