The Tilta Nucleus-M Wireless Lens Control System Partial Kit IV contains the essential elements for pulling focus and iris wirelessly. The kit includes the Nucleus-M FIZ hand unit controller, two Nucleus-M motors, two removable lens belts (DSLR Lens Follow Focus Adapters), two motor power cables, two marking disks for the hand unit, a lanyard for the hand unit, and a battery charger unit. The system enables an AC to pull focus and iris on a prime lens. If you are using a lens that does not have standard cine-style gears, then use the included lens belts to add gears to your lens.

This partial kit is a dual-axis system, typically controlling focus and iris, but the hand unit will allow you to control an additional motor (not included) for zoom control when using a zoom lens. The system can wirelessly pull focus from up to 1000′ away, and the batteries can power the hand unit for approximately 10 hours on a single charge (batteries not included). The first motor is powered via the included D-Tap to 7-pin cable; the second motor daisy-chains to the fist via the 7-pin to 7-pin cable for power. The lanyard attaches to the hand control unit, allowing you to wear it around your neck.


Please note that batteries are not included and must be sourced separately.

Tilta Nucleus-M FIZ Hand Unit

The Tilta Nucleus-M FIZ Hand Unit provides three-channel wireless focus, iris, and/or zoom control as part of the Nucleus-M lens control system. The hand unit features a large wood-edged focus knob, a zoom joystick, an iris wheel, and a backlit LED display window.

Select from low, medium, and maximum transmission ranges to best suit your working distance and battery reserves. The Nucleus-M FIZ Hand Unit’s choice of 15 2.4 GHz channels minimizes the chance of interference in high-traffic areas. Set up to 10 soft stops with vibration for focus pulls, and calibrate lenses automatically or manually.

Wireless run/stop is available for select cameras using the hand unit and separately available cables. The hand unit is powered by two separately available lithium-ion batteries and can operate for up to 10 hours on a single charge.


Please note that batteries are not included and must be sourced separately.
