4.0 Firmware for Redrock's microRemote Wireless Follow Focus Offers Big Improvements

Redrock microRemote Firmware 4.0
Redrock has done a lot to try to increase usability in the newest firmware for their wireless follow focus.

Though the first batch of microRemotes had some issues, the company has been working hard to improve both the hardware and software over the last few years, and it's a much more polished product than when it was first introduced (something that we really expect from all hardware manufacturers these days).

Here's what's new in the 4.0 Firmware:

  • 50% more torque during calibration
  • Swap batteries and keep your lens calibration
  • Auto-calibrate your lenses from the hand unit
  • Manually set your lens end points using hand unit or fingerwheel

Speed is important when you're on set, so the last thing you want is a lens calibration slowing you down. If you don't own one already, packages start around $2,500, and you can add more accessories from there depending on your needs and whether you're operating a gimbal and want the additional fingerwheel.
