Tilta Nucleus-Nano Overview

Pair this Nucleus-Nano Wireless Focus Hand Wheel Controller from Tilta with the Nucleus-Nano Motor to wirelessly control the focus of most DSLR, mirrorless, or cine-style lenses.

The large Hand Wheel responds with no delay as it wirelessly controls the separately available Nucleus-Nano motor from up to 300' away via 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, and it lasts up to six hours on a single 3.7V 14500 lithium-ion battery. You can also perform run/stop functions and set hard A and B limits with the buttons on the wheel for more control over your camera and lens.

The Hand Wheel is constructed with aluminum, plastic, rubber, and a sleek rosewood-lined handle for comfort and style. It can mount on a stand, rig, or gimbal such as the Gravity G2X with a rosette connector. One separately available 14500 lithium-ion battery is required to use the Hand Wheel.

Tilta Nucleus-Nano Reviews

Little motor that could!!!

This is used on my full size steadicam rig and it works great!!

Bad System

Motor is weak, wheel has to be constantly recalibrated, the battery charger did not work and both batteries died quickly because there doesn't seem to have a power saving/automatic turn off feature. Would not recommend.

Fantastic piece of kit with one flaw!

I've had two Nano motors and they're awsome and strong. It disconnects sometimes and forgets the Points but it's rather mild and odd. Pro work demands the M units, looking forward to the Nano II and really hope that the motors have an off function otherwise it'll keep running power. Still a top device!

Excellent but...

Depending on the climate in your country, the Wooden Element of the unit will crack. We've had the device for 8 months and the wooden ring has split down the middle longitudinally. As our country is sub Saharan Africa, it is quite dry. Also, get more than one battery. The batteries are prone to leaking.. And one battery isnt enough for any sort of shooting.

Great option

I bought this to have a wireless option in my various camera set-ups. Range is good, set-up is easy. I'm looking forward to more time with it

Dim screen

The screen isn't daylight viewable. As the controller ages, it gets dimmer. Purchased this as a replacement for my original controller with an unreadable screen. Replacement wasn't much more than the repair+shipping, and I couldn't be without it. You get what you pay for, so I'm fine with it. It's just disappointing to have issues like this.

Nice!

I have 2 of these and love them. The accuracy over using the tilta handles with the finger wheel the nano focus wheel is 10 times better. I can better control the slowness of the focus with these. I use the Tilta M (the big boy motor and handle) for zoom and use these with the nano motor for focus. I can run the nano motor with the handles but the wheel is the way to go! I blew out one of these and had to replace it with just the wheel, didn't need the kit. I wasn't thinking and plugged in a D-Tap to the wheel and the 12 volts instantly popped it and the smell of melted electrical wires was the smell of stupidity. You can run the nano motors off 12 volt D-tap, i just did think nor followed the 5V input plainly written on the port. I will run the batteries from now on. I was just running low on batteries and in a pinch tried d-tap and failed miserably. Contacted Tilta and its just as cheap to buy a new one than to repair one, repair is 100 plus shipping.

Simply charge the battery and plug in motor, then Bammm! It works. 1 button hold for calibration and it remembers the last cal. Simply what we need in a follow focus, I love it.
