ALL SOLD! THANK YOU ALL FOR INQUIRING

Hi All,

This is an older style Preston for sale. That means MDR-1 and no LED on the hand unit. But it is all the modern microwave technology - no UHF stuff. PLEASE DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND RESEARCH THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCES! Call up Preston. They know me well and know this unit.

It is in excellent condition, regular maintenance by Preston. The Iris knob slider is a little loose, but Preston has assured me on more than one occasion they cannot tighten it further and it is absolutely fine. First generation microwave units. Here is the breakdown on exactly what you get. ie. Preston part # / description / current price for new (ie. not what I am selling it for!)

#4000 / FI & Z hand control / $2950
#4004 / focus scale marker pins installation / $40
#4005 / spare focus scale rings / $24 - you get 6 (value $144)
#4423 / Arri-Moviecam on/off cable / $155 - you get 2
#4102 / MDR-1 - motor driver receiver / $3450
#4908 / 2.4 GHz Tranceiver & Voltage converter (this is for the MDR) / $1,195
#4910 / Transmitter module (attaches to top of FI & Z unit) / $1450
#4905/6 / Antennas for TX & RX / $25 each

I will include a quick charger and one battery (new cells) for an additional $500. (Item #'s 4903 & 4904)

Total package cost: $6,500.00 w/ battery and charger $7,000.00

You save over $3000.00 if you had to buy it new (& more than the cost of a new lens motor w/ cable).

Package only. Will not sell individual items.

You pay for shipping. Ready for immediate worldwide shipping.

You will need to buy:
- A lens motor & cable
- A power cable for the MDR set up to power off your sled - available from Preston or Fred Davis @Production Cable Services.

This is incredible value if you want to get into a Preston system and an excellent option if you are looking to have a back up Preston.

ALL SOLD! THANK YOU ALL FOR INQUIRING
