Ikan PDL-F Remote Live 2 Compact Follow Focus Control. Harnessing the power and precision of PD Movie’s popular follow focus systems in a compact control set perfect for both camera stabilizing and traditional camera setups. The PDL-F attaches easily to most rigs. Simply install the precision motor onto either a 15 or 19mm rod and firmly lock its drive gear into the gearing of your lens; its 0.8 pitch gear is 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 the D-tap to lemo compatible adapter. After installing, simply push the control set’s button to start and calibrate the unit. Once you do that, your follow focus is ready to use.
With full tactile operation, the PDL-F reacts according to how you maneuver the control. Unlike other FF it does not react to a preset speed or programmed reaction. Its compact size is a welcome inclusion to your camera rig even those requiring lighter payloads.
