The Nucleus Nano II FIZ Wireless Lens Control System from Tilta is a focus, iris, and zoom control system designed for both freelance cinematographers and experienced DPs alike, whether they're using a handheld or gimbal-mounted rig. The basic system configuration includes a handwheel controller with upgraded touchscreen display and a lens control motor with five times the torque of its predecessor. USB-C connectivity, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connect the units to one another from up to 300' away and offer control compatibility with select camera systems, and Wi-Fi allows for firmware updates.
Handwheel Controller with Touchscreen
View your wireless channel, Wi-Fi status, battery life, Bluetooth connectivity, and standby status on the outer portion of the controller's 1.6" 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 motor as well as additional customizations for the handwheel.
FIZ Lens Control Motor
The motor drive is positioned in an offset orientation from the main gearing to prevent the motor from pushing away from the lens during use. A 0.8 MOD gear ensures compatibility with most cinema-standard lenses, while an included lens adapter ring expands this compatibility for DSLR and mirrorless camera lenses. Two USB-C ports on the motor—one I/O and one input only—power the motor and can pass power through to multiple motors to control FIZ from a single source.
USB-C Ports and Power
The USB-C port on the handwheel can be used to facilitate wired connections to compatible cameras. It can also recharge the internal battery when depleted and facilitate firmware updates to the motors or other Nano II accessories. Power can also be delivered to the Nano II using the contact points on the back of the handwheel, which are compatible with select Tilta power accessories. Use professional batteries, power banks, or separately available Tilta power handles to power the motor via the USB-C input. The whole system can run for up to 20 hours.
Intuitive Pairing and Configuration
Select a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi channel to pair your handwheel with the lens motor over a wireless connection. Press the function button on the motor to finalize the connection and cycle through the available modes: iris control, zoom control, or focus control. Different light colors will show you which mode you are on: green for iris, blue for zoom, purple for focus, and yellow for other. Hold the function button down to automatically calibrate the motor.
Onboard Handwheel Controls
  • A run/stop button powers up the handwheel and sends run/stop commands to your connected camera via USB-C for Sony and Canon cameras.
  • 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 handwheel in tandem with the Nucleus motor, while DF mode works best with the DJI Focus Motor. Spinning the wheel control will adjust your FIZ sensitivity.
Compatibility
The Nano II is backward compatible with the previous generation Nucleus-Nano and Nucleus-M lens motors for easy integration with your preexisting equipment. The current firmware fully supports all controls for the BMPCC 4K, 6K, and 6K Pro via Bluetooth only, with partial camera control, including run/stop, shutter speed, ISO, and iris adjustment for Sony FX3, a7S 3, a7R 5, ZV-E1, ZV-E10, and Canon R7 via USB-C PD cables.

For the most current features, camera, and gimbal support, please visit the Tilta website.

Note:
Some features listed above are not fully functional in the current firmware, such as DJI Ronin and DJI Focus Motor compatibility and lens mapping, and will be implemented with future firmware updates.

How would you recommend attaching the handwheel controller to a tripod pan handle?
Asked by: Alex
Depending on the design of the pan handle, it would require a combination of things like these: The SmallRig Quick Release NATO Clamp (B&H # SM1973), the CAMVATE Universal Super Crab Gripper Clamp with Screw Knob & 1/4"-20 Threads (B&H # CAC2878), and the Impact 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 Adapter Spigot (B&H # IMCA112), which will attach the CAMVATE clamp to the SmallRig clamp.
