Tilta Nucleus-Nano Reviews

Awesome

I am super impressed with this wireless FF controller.

Great for focus not the best for zoom

By James
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-26

I give it 5 stars because the price point and the ability to focus pull wirelessly. When using on a photo lense the focus works great! I can't say how it would work on a stiff cinema lens. Stiff zooms it will not work great on, I know that. It will get jerky. Even using a 12Volt power source there is not enough smooth torque to turn a stiff photo lens smoothly. It will zoom smoothly on photo lenses we have that are internal zoom meaning they don't extend. The extending lenses seem to be stiff and the internal zoom are smoother and easier to turn which it will work with. Both the motor or the wheel will work with the Nucleus-M. The nano motor will work with a Nucleus-M hand grip but it drifts after stopping. Which is enough to though the focus off. The wheel operates the nano motor the best. it's more accurate and will not drift and it's easier to pull focus as opposed to using your index finger on the M hand grip. Wireless range is really good. About 100 feet away had no hesitations. It says good for 300'. Thats far and I would never need that. Really nice that all the nucleus M and N will all work with one another.

Great product

It's amazing and easy to use. You can even program stops and you leans focus will go extremely smoothly.

This thing is a beast! I love it. Especially for the price. Make sure your lens has a loose focus ring or it will stall out the motor.

Unreliable

By Henry

This follow focus system works really well when it works. The single AA battery powering the focus wheel is finicky and unreliable. We charged both batteries the night prior to shoot, and tested the system successfully. Yet the morning of the shoot neither battery showed signs of working, and the focus system was unusable. Needs a need design around powering the wheel unit.

Just stopped working

By Eduardo

Date: 2022-03-07

I was very happy with the product until it just stopped working out of the blue. I tried to troubleshoot it by going online but all I learned was that it is a problem that can be fixed and is occurring frequently. The warranty just expired by a month and they didn't even offer a discount on a future purchase. The repair was going to be $145.00 and plus shipping. Never buying this particular product from them again.

Why did I wait so long to get one of these?!

Faithful replacement!

Works just as fine as my original! It was a livesaver that they sold this separately.

Is this compatible with other gimbals such as the newly realesed Moza Air 2?
Asked by: Victor
Yes, this can be rigged up to use on other gimbals like the Moza Air 2. However the Moza Air 2 has the Moza iFocus Wireless Follow Focus Motor specifically for it, B&H # MOMF03. It will be far easier to use the Moza Air 2 with the focus motor designed specifically for it.
