Advice on Value of my Preston System

Recommended Posts

HI All,

I'm thinking of selling my Preston system but would like some advice from the market place on it's value.


It is a MDR2 HU2 G3 System with Digital Micro Force, 3 x DM1 Motors a Preston Focus / Iris Handset G3 and also a Preston Wireless Microforce Zoom Control Also G3,


Still has the original Iris Hardwire control and cable as well


2 x custom made, 1 x long and 1 x short Zoom Y Cables for panhandle use as well as 2 x Panhandle brackets,

1 O Connor Style and one Panavision multi adjustable style


It has 32 Focus Discs a whole array of cables for focus etc as well as many various bracket options and MDR Mounting solutions,

Also a Back Pack system for the MDR that powers from any Anton Bauer Gold Mount Battery along with a 10'

2 x Motor and Command Cable Loom


The Handset has the Sony Battery Conversion and there are 5 small Sony 2 Medium and 2 x Large Sony Batterys as well as 2 x Sony Double smart Chargers and an assortment of aftermarket chargers as well


All in a large Pelican style Case.


As you can see it is quite a substantial kit and has served me well for many years.

Someone offered a similar kit for US $13000 a year ago on the Steadicam forum:




And another a little earlier for the same price:




That forum probably has more Preston owners and sellers than this one.
