Tilta Announces Upgraded Nucleus Nano II for Camera Operators and Videographers
Tilta, a leading manufacturer of camera accessories, has announced the release of the Nucleus Nano II, the latest addition to their line of wireless focus control systems. The Nucleus Nano II is an upgrade to the popular Nucleus Nano, providing video professionals with even more control over their lenses. It's also ideal for use by camera teams, allowing multiple camera operators to control their lenses wirelessly from a single hand unit.
The Nucleus Nano II is a compact and lightweight system that can be attached to any camera rig. It consists of a hand unit and a motor that can be mounted on a camera lens. The hand unit communicates wirelessly with the motor, allowing the camera operator to control the focus, zoom, and aperture of the lens remotely.
One of the most significant upgrades to the Nucleus Nano II is its improved motor. The motor is now more powerful, quieter, and more precise, making it easier for camera operators to achieve accurate focus pulls. Additionally, the motor is now compatible with a wider range of lenses, including cine-style lenses and lenses with hard stops.
The hand unit of the Nucleus Nano II has also been upgraded. It now features a larger and more responsive focus wheel, as well as a new OLED display that provides more detailed information about the lens settings. The hand unit also includes a new feature called "marking disc," which allows camera operators to mark focus points on the lens and easily return to them later.
In addition to these improvements, the Nucleus Nano II boasts a number of other features that make it an attractive option for video professionals. For example, the system uses multi-channel communication, allowing up to 15 motors to be controlled from a single hand unit. This makes it ideal for use in multi-camera setups, where multiple camera operators need to work together to capture the same scene.
The Nucleus Nano IIalso features a rechargeable battery, which provides up to 15 hours of continuous use on a single charge. This eliminates the need for disposable batteries and makes it easier to keep the system charged and ready for use.
