The Tilta Nucleus-M Wireless Lens Control System Partial Kit I contains the essential elements for pulling focus wirelessly. The kit includes the Nucleus-M FIZ hand unit controller, one Nucleus-M motor, one removable lens belt, a motor power cable, two marking disks for the hand unit, a lanyard for the hand unit, and a battery charger. The system enables pulling focus, iris, or zoom on your lens, and if you are using a lens that does not have standard cine-style gears, then use the included lens belt to add gears to your lens.

This partial kit is a single-axis system, but the hand unit will allow you to control additional motors (not included) so you can control more than one lens ring. The system can wirelessly pull focus from up to 1000' away, and batteries can power the hand unit for approximately 10 hours on a single charge (batteries not included). The lanyard attaches to the hand control unit, allowing you to wear it around your neck.

Note:
Please note that batteries are not included and must be sourced separately.

Tilta Nucleus-M Reviews

Must Have for Solo Shooters

By Jesse
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-25

If you're a solo shooter for narrative or documentary work, this is a must have. It pairs perfectly with no hiccups and the Nucleus-M has a ton of torque (with adjustable settings) to make working with heavy cine glass a breeze. It is also compatible with both the Nucleus-M remote focus wheel as well as the Nucleus Nano remote focus wheel, so you can pair across the entire Nucleus line of accessories. Best feature is the auto-calibration if you use lenses with hard-stop focus rings.

Amazing little system for the price

By Joseph

Look, your AC will complain and they're probably right. This little jammer doesn't stand close to the WCU-4. But guess what?! Budgets these days don't allow for a $12K follow focus system on every job so this little guys is gonna have to make do sometimes. Far from perfect but works darn well for the dollars spent. Biggest beef for me: You also have to buy separate R/S cables and the one for Alexa EXT doesn't power the motor. You can get a 3-pin Fischer cable but Tilta support has said they don't recommend it.

What I was looking for

Easy to build, reliable and responsive, with the choice of battery or running power via dtap. I can finally keep my hands on the handles and control the frame in the best way when shooting on a shoulder rig, and still being able to manually focus or changing iris. Top product, I wish I had pulled the trigger earlier.

Great value but product quality has decreased

By Michael
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-12

I'm giving this product 4 stars because the value simply cannot be beat. I'm deducting 1 star for Tilta cheaping out on the manufacturing. We recently ordered this product to replace a Nucleus-M kit that had been stolen from us. Our original Nucleus kit was from when the product first came out, and the build quality on the new units is noticeably cheaper. So many of the parts that were previously metal in the original kit are now plastic. Pretty disappointing considering they're still charging the same amount for it.

Runs with much more expensive systems

So far this has been great. Spend some time getting used to it before jumping on set. My only gripe is with some of their other gear (like focus rings that are too soft to work with this). Spend the $$ and get the whole kit rather than adding pieces later.

Technically, the Tilta Nucleus-M Wireless Lens Control System Partial Kit I BH #TIWLCT03K1 can be adapted to the DJI Ronin-SC Gimbal Stabilizer if you outfit a 15mm rod mount and power the motor externally of the DJI Ronin-SC Gimbal Stabilizer. You are working with a limited payload of 4.4 lb and a small camera carriage for balancing, so be mindful.

You can use dry-erase markers to make marks, and that way when you are pulling focus you are able to see where the focus points are.
