    Does anyone have any experience with the Verizoom Wireless Follow Focus System? I am in the market to purchase a system that will primarily live on my Movi Pro and Epic-W. I am leaning towards Rtmotion but the Verioom is about $1k cheaper, and based out of Austin TX which is down the road from me. A big drawback is that I can't find a thumbwheel solution for them, and that would likely be a deal breaker. Thoughts?

    Is there a reliable solution with a thumbwheel in the $4k range or do I need to step up to the $5.5-$6k range for the Rtmotion? Thanks for your advice!

    I would go with the RTmotion. It saved the day for me countless of times. I had wcu, red rock, ikan't, Cinegear, bartec, c-motion all fail on me on set and luckily I had my RTmotion to save the shoot.

    Thanks guys! That helps to confirm what I am thinking. Any experience with support from Rtmotion? Also, rumor has it they have a new offering this week, news on that yet?

    RTMotion is in the lead. Is there another in the same price range that is comparable when it comes to reliability?

    Curious about this too. There's the Nucleus I System from Titla for $3k. Wondering how it compares to the RT.

    I had Custer support when there was a firmware issue with one of my motors. Fast and easy customer service. Only downside is that they are based in London. Which adds time to the repair and if you buy direct from RTMOTION. You can now buy direct from Offhollywood and Offhollywood also have more heavy duty cables for the RTmotion.
