The Tilta Nucleus-M Wireless Lens Control System Partial Kit II contains the essential elements for pulling focus wirelessly while handholding. The kit includes the Nucleus-M right handgrip controller, one Nucleus-M motor, one removable lens belt, two motor power cables, and a battery charger unit (batteries not included). The handgrip controller provides wireless fingertip lens control while functioning as handgrip support for your camera rig, and the system enables pulling either focus, iris, or zoom on your lens. If you are using a lens that does not have standard cine-style gears, then use the included lens belt to add gears to your lens.
This partial kit is a single axis system, but the Nucleus-M right handgrip controller will allow you to control additional motors (not included) so you can control more than one lens ring. The included motor power cables allow you to power a motor from either a D-Tap power source or a second motor via the 7-pin to 7-pin connector. The included power cables allow you to easily add a second motor (not included) to the system. The included rosettes aid in mounting the handgrip controller to your camera or rig with ARRI-style rosettes. The system can wirelessly pull focus from up to 1000′ away, and with separately available batteries you can power the hand unit for approximately 10 hours on a single charge.
Tilta Nucleus-M Handgrip (Right)
The Tilta right-side Wireless Handgrip provides fingertip lens control while also functioning as a handgrip support for your camera rig. This component of the separately available Nucleus-M FIZ (focus/iris/zoom) system enables you to split control between the handgrip and the hand unit as you prefer.
With a wireless control range of up to 1000′, the Wireless Handgrip can be used for drone or car-mounted shots in addition to handheld configurations. Mount the handgrip using its ARRI-style rosette or use an optional adapter to mount to your gimbal. Use this grip with a separately available left-side grip for full focus, iris, and zoom control of cine-style lenses.
Handgrip features include three knob-rotation settings, optional adapters for either bar- or ring-based gimbals, LED indicators, and an LCD display. Powered by two 18650 lithium-ion batteries (not included), the handgrips can maintain a single charge for up to two days. As part of the Nucleus-M system, the Wireless Handgrip provides a run/stop function for select cameras.
