ARRI Master Grip overview

  • 1Description

The ARRI MLW-1 Master Grip Left Wheel Basic Set for 3rd-Party Cameras is a Left Wheel Master Grip set for controlling prime lenses on a variety of third-party (non-ARRI) cameras. A standard (non-electronic) right-hand grip, an LCUBE CUB-1 signal converter, and an assortment of cables for third-party cameras are included with the set. This Master Grip combination offers left-handed, wheel-style focus/iris control. The ARRI Master Grips offer handheld camera stabilization with handgrip control of focus, iris, and zoom (where applicable) settings; end limits can be set for easier single-user F/I/Z moves. Camera controls include the REC function, a 5-way joystick, and assignable user buttons.

This set includes one MLW-1 Master Grip Left Wheel, a SGR-1 Standard Right Grip, a signal converter, accessories, and cables. A hard-shell case with custom-cut foam cradles the components when transporting and storing the set.

Note: Lens motors, respective cables, and 15mm rods/supporting hardware not included

  • MLW-1 Master Grip (Left-Hand Wheel)

    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.

  • LCUBE CUB-1 LBUS to Serial Converter with Bracket

    The ARRI LCUBE CUB-1 Serial Converter changes LBUS protocols to serial protocols and vice versa. This multi-purpose protocol converter can be used for different functions in various camera setups. Use the CUB-1 and one or more cforce motors (not included) to connect a UDM-1 Distance Measure to an ALEXA Mini. The CUB-1 will also enable ARRI electronic control system accessories such as Master Grips to communicate with select 3rd-party cameras.

    A vari-colored LED indicates the status of the CUB-1's SETUP button. A quick-release bracket with a 3/8"-16 screw is included with the converter. The CUB-1 does not include an LBUS cable (available separately).
