microRemote Wireless Bundle
microRemote Wireless Bundle
The Redrock microRemote Wireless Focus Bundle brings an entirely new level of price/performance to professional-level focus control systems. This bundle includes all the main components needed for controlling your lens’ focus wirelessly with precision and power. Unlike other products that rely on a specific camera or lens combination, the microRemote is a universal focusing solution, and works on virtually every camera and lens. This is especially valuable as your needs and cameras evolve with each project or even with each shot.
The microRemote handheld controller is a professional-level wireless device loaded with features that make focusing easier and more intuitive.
Smooth Lens Control
The system maps any lens to its full 270 degrees of rotation, including DSLR lenses. You can change the lens direction, and use the unit left- or right-handed. Camera run/stop allows you to remotely start and stop your camera. The smooth weighted focus wheel has an exceptional feel and offers adjustable hard stops.
With the Redrock Torque motor, you can attach this to virtually any lens and camera combination: the microRemote is not limited to a specific camera body or lens type. The microRemote handheld wireless unit controls the motor via the basestation, and delivers precise and fast focus pulls previously only found in expensive high-end professional focus units.
The microRemote Basestation offers advanced features for automatic lens calibration or, if you use DSLR lenses with ‘infinite spinning’ focus rings, you can calibrate end stops manually. The basestation also provides centralized power to the motors and microTape (if one is attached).
Unique to the microRemote is the ability to use more than one type of controller: the wireless handheld, tethered (wired handheld), fingerwheel, or follow focus emulation with the optional handwheel. This bundle contains only the wireless handheld, but other options can be added without any overlap in product or price.
The microRemote can be used in virtually any situation where it’s difficult to pull focus directly from the camera: steadicam, jib arms, cranes, or just to have some extra room. In situations where wireless may not be possible or allowed, the optional tethering cable wires the microRemote for direct, interference-free operation.
This bundle is also fully upgradeable to our wired controller options. Just add the inexpensive fingerwheel controller and it’s ready to go for operator-controlled focus on a handheld rig, or as another control option for jibs and cranes. The microRemote Wireless Bundle is lightweight, compact, and an exceptional value.
