Black Unicorn Lens Control

Lens control - image stabilisation


We understand industry standards for remote operation of camera lenses–Preston and Arri systems are here to stay. However, we developed our own system as an alternative and a backup. BU Head comes with a built-in water resistant motors driver /MDR that can share the control of the lens motors with other systems, typically taking charge of the Zoom, but fully capable of all three: Focus, Iris and Zoom.

We use powerful Heden (and similar) motors, which are provided with various gears to fit almost any lens ring. Our wireless hand unit is able to work non-stop for more than a full filming shift without recharging, and rapidly charges when needed. System is supplied with various camera start/stop cables and extra motor power cables.
