The Preston Digital Microforce 2 Zoom Control features automatic lens calibration, electronic limit setting, and a bright LED bargraph display of zoom position. It also includes programmable soft stops and a speed control knob with a digital readout.

The rugged housing, machined from solid aluminum alloy, protects the control from mechanical abuse and assures years of reliable operation. Its ergonomic design provides a rounded grip for comfortable all day use and also offers a convenient attachment point for its mating Pan Arm adapter. The new speed control knob is virtually indestructible. It turns with glassy smoothness that reflects on the careful design used throughout.

The Digital Microforce 2 can drive the DM1, DM2 or DM1X digital motors. Its powerful drive capability assures trouble free operation with even the largest zoom lenses. Motor connection is made via a series of molded "Y" cables. These cables are available for both film and video cameras and allow the Digital Microforce 2 to remotely control the camera run/stop or VTR functions respectively.

The Digital Microforce 2 also supplies the analog command signal for controlling the zoom channel of the FI+Z system, the internal servos of video lenses, or the Radio Micro Force wireless module.
