Harnessing the power and precision of PD Movie’s popular lens control systems, the PDL-FZ Remote Live 2 Compact Focus and Zoom Control Kit is perfect for traditional and stabilizing camera setups. The PDL-FZ easily attaches to almost any rig: Simply install the two precision motors onto a 15 or 19mm rod and firmly lock their drive gears into the gearing of your lens; their 0.8 pitch gears are compatible with most common cinema lenses. Then, attach the lens control module to your mounting point of choice (less than 1″ in diameter), and provide power using thle D-tap to lemo compatible adapter. After installing the hardware, easily assign the motors and the control to one of six individual channels (two of the six are set for the focus and zoom respectively) by simply tapping each unit’s single button. Quickly set calibrations with a tap of the controller’s two individual push buttons. To adjust additional settings and alter the speed of each channel’s control, use the same button that was used for calibration. In a few minutes, your follow focus will be ready to use. You now have precise control of the zoom and focus at your fingertips. Due to its compact size, the PDL-FZ is a welcome inclusion to almost any camera rig, even those requiring lighter payloads.
The precise movement of the PD3-M motors follow every nuanced adjustment you make to your focus and zoom.
The PDL-FZ can be installed quickly to most camera setups that incorporate mounting rods.
Control Multiple Motors
Both the Focus and Zoom controls can be set to operate numerous motors, perfect for setting up elaborate 3D and special effects rigs.
Lightweight yet Effective
While powerful enough to be used in traditional camera setups, the PDL-FZ is perfect for lightweight applications such as gimbal and Steadicam operations.
Simple to Operate
A simple “one-button-per-channel” control makes calibration and changing settings a breeze.
