Tilta Nucleus-Nano Wireless Lens Control System

Product Description

The Tilta Nucleus-Nano is a wireless lens control system specifically designed for handheld gimbal systems. It makes it possible for a single operator to control a lens gear while simultaneously operating their gimbal. The Nano system is compatible with all DSLR, mirrorless, & modified “cine-style” vintage photo lenses.

The Nano Hand Wheel Controller has a compact knob design similar to professional follow focus hand units (the design is very similar to the Tilta Nucleus-M hand unit’s focus wheel). The Nano Hand Wheel Controller has no delay. It is highly responsive, wireless, & accurate. It is powered via a single 14500 rechargeable battery (which is included in the kit) for 6 hour operating time.

The Nucleus-Nano uses a brand new state of the art power-efficient miniature motor. The Nano Motor features low noise & high torque. It can perform super-fast focus pulls with silent precision! The built-in 15mm rod adapter allows for flexibility & compatibility with a wide range of camera rigs & professional mounting solutions.

The motor has a 5-18V input tolerance for power via a Micro USB port. This allows the motor’s power to be drawn from 5V Micro USB output or via a D-Tap.

The Nano Motor has its own built-in motor drive that communicates directly with the Nano Hand Wheel Controller. This negates the need to mount a separate MDR to your rig, allowing for a more compact camera setup & a quicker setup time. Simply set the Nano Motor & Nano Hand Wheel Controller to the same channel & you will have full control. The wireless range of both the Nano Hand Wheel Controller & Nano Motor is 300 feet!

The Nano Motor allows for automatic calibration of the lens as well as a manual calibration if you are using lenses that don’t have hard end stops at close focus & infinity via the ability to set A-B limits on the Nano Hand Wheel Controller. Every motor has a 0.8 mod, which is the standard gear size for most cinema lenses. The torque of the Nucleus-Nano Motor at 5.5V is 0.65Nm & at 14.8V is 1Nm

The Nano Motor is also able to connect to the Nucleus-M’s FIZ hand unit & hand grips, allowing for a variety of ways to control the motor as you see fit.

Lastly, the Nano system can provide record Run/Stop functionality for numerous camera systems.
