The Tilta Nucleus-M Wireless Lens Control` System features a 1000' transmission range, and comes with two lens drive motors with built-in wireless receivers, a FIZ hand controller, and two handgrips—one to control focus, and the other iris and zoom. The lens drive motors each feature a cine standard 0.8 MOD drive gear and two 7-pin connectors, which enables you to freely swap or interchange each motor. The motors power by daisy-chaining using the 7-pin cables, and each motor includes a 19mm rod clamp with 19 to 15mm reducing bushing.

The FIZ hand controller allows you to control focus, iris, and zoom, and includes a neck strap. The handgrips feature adapters that enable mounting the controllers onto ARRI-compatible rosettes or onto 25/30mm diameter rods, such as those used with gimbals. The system comes packed in a waterproof hard case that protects your gear during transport and storage.

Please note that batteries are not included and must be sourced separately.
The system features three ranges: low, medium, and high. It supports up to 15 channels to select from, and the controllers pair with each motor via the motor ID.
The FIZ hand unit can control three channels (focus, zoom, and iris), as well as override the handgrips.
The motors can calibrate on lenses with or without hard stops, such as a photo lens with follow focus gears.
The motors feature cine standard 0.8 MOD 32 pitch drive gears. Each motor includes a 19mm rod clamp and a 15 to 19mm adapter bushing, allowing you to mount the motors onto either a 15mm or 19mm rod.
The motors power from a D-Tap connector, and then pass power by daisy-chaining via the 7-pin connectors with the included cables.
The FIZ hand controller and each handgrip power via two 18650 3000mAh, 3.7V Li-ion batteries.
The batteries in the FIZ hand controller will last for more than 10 hours, and up to 48 hours in each handgrip, when idle.

    Nucleus-M Wireless Lens Control System is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some Amazing Features, but Unreliable Works fine most of the time, but very prone to wireless interference. It’s like a ticking time bomb. Unless Tilta releases some fixes for this products, it’s only a matter of time before the Nucleus-M makes you look foolish on set Only reason I’m keeping mine is because it works great as an ENG style LCS with everything hard wired. I imagine most people will want to pull focus wirelessly though, and it’s only a matter of time before it fails on them Check out the Tilta Nucleus-M User Group on Facebook for some horror stories

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is the first wireless follow focus system I use, but so far I am in love with it. It links up fast and works seamlessly. It does what it's supposed to do with ease of setup. It's also very quiet and smooth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better then Bartech... on a par with the best follow focus. It's easy ti operates on its basics, but It takes a while to master it completely. But what would you expect from an item with so many features. It is simply the best follow focus system for the price, or for anything under 5k.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 For the price, a worthwhile investment. Have had no issues with it so far. Quick and easy to setup up and operate. I use Xeen PL lenses (which have stiffer rings than photography lenses) on a fixed PL mounted camera (Ursa Mini 4.6K) specifically because of the hard positive lock. Unlike EF and other prosumer mounts which are too loose and cause lens shift during motor movements which is clearly visible in the footage. If you work the motors slowly you may get away with it, however with hardcore focus pulling it is definitely noticeable. This has nothing to do with the Tilta system, you would find this with almost any follow focus system mounted on rails. But I digress - Tilta, in my opinion, have come up with an excellent combo product. Well thought out and designed and extremely affordable. I also love the armoured look - Never fails to impress and evoke inqueries from onlookers. As long as you know what you are doing - and don't confuse product failure with personal idiosyncrasies - this product will do its job as intended, and do it well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tilta Nailed It! I'm really impressed with the level of build quality and function regardless of price and with all of the other professional grade FIZ (focus, iris, zoom) units available on the market costing many times more than the Nucleus M, you just can't go wrong. It also offers a few unique features such as full control of focus, iris, & zoom through the hand grips that open up new ways of operating especially with a gimbal. It's also worth mentioning that there is a long list of accessories for the Nucleus M available from Tilta that really make the system work seamlessly. It's a professional piece of equipment with a long list of features and because of this it takes a bit of set up to get everything working correctly. When I set it up for the first time I thought I had and issue but it turned out it was just a channel setting that was conflicting. The guys over at Tilta have been extremely helpful making sure I got it working to it's full potential and their customer service has been outstanding. Be sure to check out their videos on set up on the Tilta website.
