    I need to find a new system for pulling focus. My redrock micro remote torque motor chatters on the lens/gear when it's on and not pulling focus. I am a bit pissed off at this and starting to realize their products are not up to par. What are some suggestions to use for pulling focus remotely and also will work on the MoviPro as a single operator?

    Hi Adam,

    You may need to adjust the gain on the microRemote's Basestation, and lower the torque setting to it's optimized setting which is 5. If you're running our 4.0 firmware, tap the Down button to lower the high torque setting. If you set it lower, you'll see increased smoothness.

    Please drop Support a line at support@redrockmicro.com if you continue experiencing issues with your system. They're eager to trouble shoot your system and directly assist you.

    I highly recommend the Chrosziel Magnum. I own a two handset kit with Panavision, Arri, Red & Cinetape Cables.

    An affordable starter kit is this.

    It has two motors.

    You should contact Timm with any questions. He is a good friend of mine. They hands down have the best Customer Service over any company I have ever delt with in this field.
