The PD Movie Remote Air Pro 3 Single-Channel Wireless Follow Focus System includes a single wireless receiving motor and a handwheel that integrates focus, zoom, and iris control, although controlling more than one channel requires additional motors. The handwheel has a wireless range of 100m and supports 19 wireless channels, allowing you to find the cleanest signal path even when using multiple motors in a FIZ (focus, iris, zoom) setup. An available iOS app allows you to control the system with your iOS device from up to 10m away.
The included receiver motor has a built-in wireless antenna and power port. This motor features a cine-style drive gear with 0.8 MOD and can drive either focus, iris, or zoom on a lens with cine-style gears. If you need to drive more than one lens ring, you will need an additional motor, but you can use one without the wireless receiver as you can daisy chain motors together. The calibration procedure has been simplified and you can calibrate lenses with or without hardstops. Built-in OLED screens on the motor and handwheel provide clear information on the state of your system.
