Hi All,

Planning a shoot using SI-2K Mini Heads in Stereo, and now looking at remote focus. While not worrying about zoom, we're planning on keeping focus sync between the lenses of each camera.

We've been looking at two systems: C-Motion & Preston FI+Z. Can anybody weight in with their experiences with these systems, or have special knowledge in this area?

Thanks,
Ben

I'm not sure specifically what you want to know.... If you're more specific about what you need to know I'm sure someone will be able to help you.
I own a Preston, as do many many people I know, and they're great. C-Motion is new and I don't know much about them.
