  1. Hey everyone, I am working on a feature right now, (pretty low budget), and recently the Preston follow focus system kind of stops working at random times. There is power running to the MDR, the battery in the hand unit will be very much charged, but the system will not work. I have tried changing frequencies, changing out motor and power cables, repositioning the MDR, and I am running out of ideas. A little more info on my set up; we are shooting on an Alexa Mini, we have a Teradek Bolt 300, and sometimes we put the camera on a steadicam. Whenever the system stops working, I unplug and plug the motor or power cable back in and then it works fine until it goes out again. When it stops working, the MDR will have its lights on, but no one is home. If anyone has experienced this or has any advice, please let me know. Thank you so much!
