The ARRI MLW-1 Master Grip (Left-Hand Wheel) combines handheld camera stabilization with comprehensive lens and camera control. With a form factor based on the classic ARRI handgrips, the Master Grips add flexible and responsive fingertip control for handheld shooting. Aimed at ALEXA, AMIRA, and third-party camera operators, the Master Grips can also be mounted on tripod pan handles, and on pedestal heads for controlling cameras in studio or multi-cam setups.
A pair of Master Grips provide full control of focus, iris, and zoom settings on cine-style lenses, and offer comfortable control of integrated servo motors on ENG- and EF-type lenses. Focus, iris, and zoom speeds are adjustable, and end limits can be set for easier single-user moves. Camera controls include the REC function, and access to user buttons for both ARRI and third-party cameras. A separately-available LCUBE CUB-1 is required for third-party camera control.
The ergonomic design of the Master Grips reduces strain, enabling extended handheld operating; an "eyebrow"-type shield protects against accidental triggering and doubles as a finger rest. This left-handed wheel is one of four available Master Grip options that can be combined in right- or left-handed pairs. The rocker grips enable super-smooth zooming, while the thumb wheels are suited for focusing or iris, or adjustments. An integrated touchscreen and a 5-way joystick each offer easy setup of the ARRI Master Grips.
