Duclos Lenses Premieres New Premista Motor Bracket

Introducing the first Motor Bracket Kit specifically produced for the Fujinon Premista Zoom line of lenses, designed and manufactured by Duclos Lenses.

If you’ve been in the motion picture industry for a while, you’re sure to have come across a lens accessory designed and manufactured by Duclos Lenses at some point. Possibly the most popular solution would be their original Carry Handle and Motor Bracket for the Angenieux 24-290mm Optimo. A series of inspired solutions followed over the next 20 years including carry handles and motor brackets for lenses produced by Angenieux, Fujinon, Arri, Zeiss, Canon, and many more. You may even have used an accessory produced by Duclos Lenses for some of these lens manufactures as OEM solutions! This leads us to the latest solution in a long line of products designed to suit the needs of cinematographers and camera operators; the Premista Motor Bracket from Duclos Lenses. This thoughtful, efficient design provides a solid mounting point for Heden motors while adding minimal weight to the camera package. The kit includes an adjustable eccentric to achieve the perfect mesh between the zoom gear and the motor. A zoom gear extension segment keeps the motor as close to the lens as possible without interfering with other operations. Installation is quick, user-friendly, and requires no modification to the original lens body. 

Constructed to operate with the industry standard Heden M26T and the new digital Heden CM55 zoom motors. 

“We spent months refining this product. Utilizing sophisticated generative design software to conceptualize solutions allowed us to achieve the most efficient design possible. I’m pleased with the result and look forward to seeing our clients pair the Premista zooms with our new Motor Bracket” – Matthew Duclos, Chief Engineer

The Duclos Premista Motor Bracket Kit is machined from billet aluminum, anodized black, and assembled in-house in Chatsworth California. They are in-stock and ready to ship! You can order directly from ducloslenses.com.
