What do you think of this? A digital dual feed foot that you can adjust from the display screen:

For me, don't like. It's nice that it's adjustable from the screen, and nice that it's differential feed.

But it's still a walking foot, meaning it's wide, thus trying to sew a 1/16, 1/8 or 1/4 inch seam is difficult to impossible.

I do a ton of narrow seam sewing, so a walking foot just doesn't do it for me.

For those who do wider or Big 4 standard 5/8" seams it may be the best thing since mercerized thread.

Sorry, but it seems like an over engineered step back to me. I like that my Dual Feed can be engaged simply and easily.

Exactly! I don't know if a lot of people are going to sit and play with getting the settings just right whenever they switch to a new combination of fabrics when they could just engage an idt type device or put on a standard walking foot.

Of the new features on these machines, I am curious about the ultrasonic pen for embroidery placement though. I know they said to check back on August 20th for specifics, but it looks like they are starting to release some videos early, like this one.

No doubt this new machine has other great features just not that dual feed system. I'm drawn to it on looks alone and may go check it out.

It looks so big. You basically install it on your machine and move it up with a lever when not needed.

I think it's an interesting idea. But since I think you would already have a regular motor, a feed dog stepping motor, maybe a needle bar one? and both a y axis and Z axis motor for the hoop on the embroidery unit, not sure if that would be just one more possible motor to go sometime or not? Maybe depends on how much it costs, to even replace the bolt on waling foot with the motor in it?

Yes, otherwise they do definitely look like great machines. I really like that they broke them up as an embroidery only or sewing only without leaving off features found on the combo machine. I know more than a few people who bought a top of the line combo machine and leave it set up just for embroidery, without using the sewing features, and have a separate machine for sewing only. Brother seems to have been paying attention to what people are doing and asking for. The prices I have seen on other posts seem to be a little steep though.

i forgot to add, I also prefer dual feed where I can choose amongst various feet to use, rather than being stuck with whatever sole the walking foot is attached to.

In the video, the seam of leather to satin showed a lot of drag lines which the woman then covered with her hand. Not kosher, Brother!

Wow, I'm used to the walking foot for my Berninas - that walking foot is enormous! I would hate to have that thing in the way while I tried to sew. Is the adjustible part they're talking about like the differential feed type of thing the Bernina 8 series has? That would be nice, but that foot is just too big, and as others have mentioned, I'd prefer to be able to use different feet with the dual feed system.
