Tilta Nucleus-M Overview

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, enabling 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 it 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.

This might be an odd setup question but I am using Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K's in a studio setup and I'm looking at lens/lens control options. The Fujinon MK18-55 T2.9 MFT lens works with the cameras and this kit plus and additional motor were suggested for lens control. So two questions, how would I power the motors and will three motors fit on the MK18-55 T2.9 lens? The zoom and focus rings are pretty close.
Asked by: Joshua
I power mine using a d-tap battery or a d-tap built into the RED body. I have used these motors in tighter configurations by flipping them around and using one on each side of the lens. Hope this helps!

question

How would I mount the grip to a tripod handle?
Asked by: db
Tilta does have adapters however does not list their sizes nor does B&H sell them. We believe that this adapter may be the one shown in the Tilta Nucleus-M video. http://bit.ly/2CEKTnY. Also this adapter from Wooden Camera should work on most any tripod pan handle. Wooden Camera Tripod Head Pan Bar to ARRI Rosette B&H # WO251800. If you email us with the diameter of your tripod pan handle, we can find out what adapter Tilta recommends. [email protected].

I'm shooting in an environment that doesn't allow for any wireless transmission. Is it possible to control two motors with a single handgrip through a wired-only configuration? Can I turn off all wireless function? Can I run p-tap power into one motor, then into the second motor, then into the handgrip, and power/control all 3 devices?
Asked by: Dakota
Yes, The Tilta Nucleus-M will allow you to run wired for control. The way to turn off the wireless setting is under the high medium low settings. There's a setting for off, then just run a cable from the hand grips to the motors.
