Hello,

I have already emailed Filmotechnic with this question but have not had a return email. I am an American 1st AC who has used the All the Russian Arm/ Ultimate Arm type cars in the USA and have only used the the Preston FIZ with those cars. I am traveling to Spain to work and the Camera rental only has a Scorpio FIZ. I know they are more popular over seas than the Preston FIZ but I would like to know if the Scorpio FIZ works with the Filmotechic Russian are coming from Amsterdam? The Operator joy sticks needs to plug into the Handset so the Op can zoom.

Thanks in advance

Hello

If anyone is interested, I found out the answer to my question. Igor at filmotechnic said that the Scorpio does work but they prefer to use the Preston because the Scorpio looses "link" sometimes with their Russian Arm car. As well as, the zoom for the Operator doesnt have to plug into the handset of the focus puller.
