Tilta Nucleus-M – A Complete Wireless Lens Control System for Only $1200? | cinema5D

This seems almost too good to be true.  Two motors, two hand grips with built in control wheels, and a traditional handheld unit with a larger focus knob as well as iris and zoom controls for $1200!  1 mile range!  Remarkable if they can pull it off.

I will say that their track record with FIZ units is suspect though.  For a number of NABs they were promising a traditional 3-channel FIZ system for $5000 called the TiltaMax.   ….and promising….and promising…and promising.  It appears to be a real product now, although at an increased price with a different name.  I say appears because AbelCine wants 2-3 months to get their hands on one still, and B&H is saying over 6 months until it’s available.  If you try to buy it from Tilta, they say “Our online payment system has not been launched yet, please contact our sales department for further information.”  Hmm.  That doesn’t mean it isn’t available, but it still seems exceedingly hard to produce one in the flesh.

Maybe its lengthy gestation gave them the expertise to design this Nucleus system.  If they can follow through, it could make a big dent in this area of the accessory market.
