With an upgraded touchscreen display, intuitive user interface, and multiple forms of connectivity, the Nucleus Nano II Handwheel Controller from Tilta is a focus, iris, and zoom control unit designed for both freelance cinematographers and experienced DPs. 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology establish wireless connections with two or more of the separately available motors and select cameras. The unit is compatible with the Nucleus-M motor for easy integration with your preexisting equipment. A USB-C port can facilitate wired control connections, charge the internal battery, and perform firmware updates.
- A run/stop button powers up the unit and sends run/stop commands to your connected camera via USB-C and Wi-Fi.
- A zoom rocker can be set to adjust your lens's zoom, focus, or iris adjustment via Bluetooth motor connection.
- A function button calibrates your motors and sets A/B stops.
- Use the TF/DF switch to spin the wheel infinitely or set stops in both directions. TF mode is preferred when using the unit in tandem with the Nucleus motor. Spinning the wheel control will adjust your FIZ sensitivity.
1.6" Touchscreen Interface
View your wireless channel, Wi-Fi status, battery life, Bluetooth connectivity, and standby status on the outer portion of the touchscreen dial. FIZ parameters and A/B stop live on the center portion, with the option to lock the screen or toggle between auto and manual focusing. Two other menus can be accessed from the main screen to lock and adjust your connected camera's settings and view your current lens parameters. Additional settings that can be accessed from the interface include pairing and accessing manual controls for the separately available motor as well as additional customizations for the hand unit.
USB-C Port and Power
The USB-C port on the hand unit can be used to facilitate wired connections to compatible cameras. It can also recharge the internal battery when depleted and facilitates firmware updates when not updating over Wi-Fi. Power can also be delivered to the Nano II using the contact points on the back of the unit, which are compatible with select Tilta power accessories.
Compatible Cameras and Gimbals for Wireless Control
The Nano II is backward compatible with the previous generation of Nucleus-Nano and the Nucleus-M lens motors for easy integration with your preexisting equipment. Select cameras from Sony, Canon, and Blackmagic can be controlled wirelessly from the hand unit's interface.
