Hi!

I have a few questions regarding the "new" Vixen mounts compared to the "older".

Are there any differences between the GPE/GPDX and the newer GP2/GDD2?

-The Handcontrollers, DD-i and DD-2, are they the same only in different costumes? And are they compatible with the MT-1 motors and (MT-1 WT)?

I suspect that there are no bigger differences between these products, except their colour!

- Grateful for any answer that can shine a light on this matter!

Kind regards/Roger!

Hi Roger,

I'm not an expert on these mounts or the history, but I think you're right that they're pretty similar to the older versions. I have a Vixen GP2 Photo Guider which uses the DD2 hand controller with MT-1 motor.
