Redrock Micro has announced a new accessory—Torque Motor bundles—for the Freefly MoVI Pro gimbal. The Motor bundles provide operators with plug-and-play focus and lens control, allowing remote focus, iris and/or zoom control to shooting with any cinema or still photo lens (with proper gearing). The Motors come standalone, and plug into the MoVI Pro’s motor control board and Freefly-supplied motor cables.
Among the additional features are a lightweight, ultracompact design that translates to longer run times and easier handling.
The Torque Motor bundles are available immediately at a list price of $695 per motor. Operators have a choice of two bundles: a 1-Motor kit (focus) and a 3-Motor kit (focus, iris and zoom).
