MPR Says: “Remote lens control has never been easier.”

“Arri’s previous wireless hand unit (The WCU-3) was already quite popular among filmmakers and cinematographers, but with the release of WCU-4, Arri made it more streamlined for everyday shooting. Now get 3-axis lens control (Focus, Iris and Zoom), a lens data display, a backlit focus knob, vibrating markers, and pre-marketed focus rings, with Arri’s new wireless hand unit – WCU-4. Despite being more feature-rich, the Arri Wireless Compact Unit (WCU)-4 weighs only 780 grams including battery, making it perfect for long shooting hours. The hand unit allows you to set two or more focus marks. When focusing between the marked points, you can concentrate on the scene rather than constantly looking at the focus marks, with the peace of mind that if you cross a focus mark, the unit will vibrate to alert you. Another useful feature is that you can adjust the backlight level of the WCU-4 display screen to make it clearly viewable in both bright daylight and low light conditions. Overall, The Arri Wireless Compact Unit WCU-4 is a portable, affordable, feature-rich and all-inclusive remote lens control system, suitable for almost every shooting requirement.”

Product Overview:

Three Axes – All Inclusive
The Wireless Compact Unit WCU-4 combines three axes of lens control with a lens data display in a compact and ergonomic housing. Weighing around 780 grams including battery, it’s one of the lightest hand units in its class, providing unrivaled comfort during a long working day.

Vibrating Markers
Tactile vibrating feedback lets you keep your eye on the action in the most challenging situations. Operators can concentrate on the scene, knowing that the hand unit will vibrate to prompt them when focus markers are reached.

Backlit Focus Knob
The super-smooth focus knob contains an integrated light source that shines through the wide, optionally pre-marked focus ring in low light conditions, thus providing clearly readable focus marks at all times. The friction of the focus knob can be easily adjusted to one’s personal preference without any tools.

Easy-to-Read Lens Data Display
Clearly arranged, easy-to-read lens and camera information is available on the large 3” display, along with data from optional ultrasonic distance measurement devices. The transflective display technology ensures perfect readability in all ambient lighting conditions.

Pre-Marked Focus Rings
Lens scales can be mapped to a set of high quality pre-marked focus rings in metric or imperial scale.

Focus Tracking
The WCU-4 user button can be configured to activate focus tracking – setting the focus motor to continuously follow a subject by using an ultrasonic distance measurer. Focus tracking works with ARRI’s Ultrasonic Distance Measure UDM-1 and ALEXA Plus or Studio cameras or the Universal Motor Controller UMC-4.
