- User Manual
PROAIM presents its new Drive One wireless remote follows focus system. It assists the camera operators in adjusting the focus or focal distance (zoom) of the camera shooting remotely. The Wireless Follow Focus can be used along with matching camera control gear like DSLR rigs, sliders, Steadycam kits, cranes/ jibs / dolly, Easy Rigs etc. It allows the user to precisely operate the focus ring on a 35mm lens from up to 200 metres away. The system provides a choice of 7 bands on which to transmit the encoded data stream, and two user definable limits to calibrate motor movement or serve as focus stops. The transmitter requires only a single 9V battery and the receiver utilises a standard 4-pin XLR for 12v power input, allowing the user to connect a standard V-lock power, or use the provided AA battery pack.
