    Some ready build units available now, just waiting the custom length cable. These will be shipped in few days from order. After that it will take longer before I make a next patch.

    For anyone in the US, waiting for their LeViteZer remote to arrive, I found out yesterday, all recent (last two weeks) mail from EU, including Kim's remotes, are sitting at JFK, as the mail/post threre is seriously backed up. Common Postal and Custom service, get this backlog moving!
    Cheers

    thanks Denny for the update, I hope you get it soon. I have lately had so many problems with the postal services, sorry that you need to share that experience.

    I guess the best solution would be to sell via distribution network. I hope there would be more demand for them, so they could be factory made and sold via resellers...

    The upside is, now different length of cables are possible and different layouts; if you want 3 potentiometer, and 4 switches, no problem, I can make it, just needs to be build to a bigger box to fit it all.

    No worries Kim, normally Postal system is very good, and fast. The remote got out of Finland very quickly, but gl caught in a Holiday backup in NY, partially due to bad weather (NewYorkers are not used to normal Fineland weather). Will let you know when it arrives.
    As of this morning, no change on Postal tracking. The last time this happened it took about a week to get sorted, and today is a Bank/Postal holiday here.
    Cheers

    I just noted it will not work with BMMSC as it is. I had tested that the SBUS control works with BMMSC but not noted that the BMMSC does not provide the +5V power for the controller like BMMCC does.

    Sorry for the misleading advertising above on this regard.

    It is possible to make it work also with BMMSC, but that will require external power to the controller, the same power could power the camera. So I have a solution if you need one for BMMSC.

    The basic version on the pictures provided will work only with BMD Micro Cinema Camera.

    The BMMSC version will work with both cameras and provide power to the camera.

    Kim, A dual Micro Studio/Cinema camera version with a 12-VDC input to externally power both the camera and the remote (it would need a regulated 12VDC power source, like a 12VDC regulated DTap to BMCC power plug (IndiePro makes one). On the Cinema camera, external power would be optional, as you can use the DB15 to power the remote as you are now. I think it would be best to have a small micro switch on the back of the remote to switch between DB15 camera power and external power.

    Making the case a little larger to accommodate the DC/DC power converter to get 5VDC from the 12VDC, would be OK, as your current case is very small, and with the larger case you could offer different control layouts, like two pots that can be configured for Focus, Iris/Zoom, and switch the ISO, SA/Gain and WB.
    This would cover all the bases as far as I can see.

    I found a way to power the SBUS controller also on BMMSC without additional battery. Simple really, both cameras have LANC power.

    BMMSC ad BMMCC.jpg

    This requires still some testing, but looking good. Here testing focusing with both cameras.
