Hi all,

 

Has anyone used the Heden Carat wireless follow focus system?  Does it have any shortcomings/issues?

I've already got some M26VE motors and looking at hand unit / receiver options.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Tom

Hi Tom,

 

I have used the Carat many times. It's a very reliable, lightweight, single-channel system that rarely gives me any issues. Occasionally there are connectivity problems, but I've always solved them by power cycling the hand unit and receiver. Overall it's very user friendly and all the ACs I work with love using it.

Thanks for the reply Lisa, great to know.  I looked in to buying one but unfortunately you can't buy the set without the motors, so I've opted for the Bartech system.  The Carat does look very neat and hopefully I'll get to see it in action one day.

 

All the best

Tom

Hi Tom,

 

Good to know that it can only be purchased as a system. I also enjoy using Bartech systems - both are great! 

 

Happy flying.
