Gain precise wireless control over your cinema lens with Movcam's 3-Axis Wireless Lens Control System. Comprised of a wireless hand controller, a receiver unit with zoom and iris extensions, three UM-3 motors, a D-tap power cable for the receiver, and a remote hardware cable for connecting the hand controller or just the focus knob itself directly to the receiver, this lens control system is versatile, programmable, and highly scalable to fit your production needs. All the components fit nicely into the included hard case for storage and transport. See below for more information on the individual components included in this kit.

MCS-1 Hand Control Unit for 3-Axis System

At the heart of the Movcam 3-Axis System sits the MCS-1 Hand Control Unit. Focus, iris, and zoom can be controlled independently with the handwheel, slider, and pressure-sensitive rocker. Using the license-free 2.4 GHz band, the hand unit can communicate with the receiver from up to 660' away in ideal line-of-sight situations. Dominating the front surface of the unit is a 3.7" touchscreen which shows real-time lens data and is also used for lens data entry and menu settings. Lens data for popular lenses is already programmed into the unit. Information for lenses not already built-in can be manually programmed into the unit by the user using the touchscreen and stored on an SD card for instant recall on any compatible device.

  • Daylight-viewable 3.7" OLED touchscreen for data entry and real-time display of lens and system data
  • 3D function mode
  • Wireless start/stop control for ARRI, Sony, and RED, as well as cameras compatible with the LANC protocol
  • EF lens control with RED cameras using an electronic EF mount
  • Pre-programmed lens data and custom lens mapping, store lens data on an SD card for instant recall
  • Hardware remote cable connection for wired operation
  • Pressure-sensitive zoom control
  • Programmable lens end-stops
  • Dampened focus handwheel
  • Backlit handwheel and function buttons
  • Operates on separately available Sony NP-F550 or NP-F570 batteries

MRS-1 Receiver Module for Movcam Wireless Lens Control System

Movcam's MRS-1 Receiver Module for Movcam Wireless Lens Control System is a single-axis wireless receiver that coupled with the Movcam SCU-1 or MCS Handset and a compatible motor allows you to control the focus, iris, or zoom rings of your lens. The receiver includes a 15mm rod adapter, and it features a mounted quick release mechanism that allows you to mount and dismount the receiver quickly yet securely. The receiver can operate Movcam lens motors as well as a variety of 3rd party motors. 

Adding two additional MRS-1 receiver modules allows you to control focus, zoom, and iris with additional motors and controllers. Please note additional controllers, motors, and receiver-to-motor cables are required for multiple lens function control; however, they are not included. The module has an OLED screen that displays information and is readable in exterior settings. The system as a whole has a transmission delay of less than 12ms and a wireless range of about 100 feet indoors and 650 feet outdoors.

  • FCC-approved wireless module with ISM 2.4M frequency range
  • Transmission Delay: less than 12ms
  • On-board .48" OLED screen, visible in sunlight
  • Indoor transmission distance: 98.4'
  • Outdoor transmission distance: 656.2'
  • Receives a signal from SCU-1 Handset or MCS Handset to control lenses
  • Works with existing Movcam motors and other 3rd party systems. Please check with Movcam for updated compatibility

MD-I Iris Motor Drive Module

Expand your Movcam wireless lens control system with the MD-I Iris Motor Drive Module to enable wireless adjustment of your lens' iris by connecting to a compatible lens motor. The MD-I stacks right onto the separate MRS-1 Receiver Module for a scalable, yet unified solution depending on the number of axes required. The compact form factor of the expanded system won't bulk up smaller rigs. If using the separately available MCS-1 hand unit, the system can be further expanded with the MD-Z to assemble a full 3-axis FIZ control system. The MD-I is compatible with the same Movcam and 3rd party motors as the MRS-1 main unit.

Note: MD-I module will only respond to iris demands from the controller and will not interface with other modules. A full FIZ system requires the MRS-1, MD-I, and MD-Z units.

MD-Z Zoom Motor Drive Module

Expand your Movcam wireless lens control system with the MD-Z Zoom Motor Drive Module to enable wireless adjustment of your lens' zoom by connecting to a compatible lens motor. The MD-Z stacks right onto the separate MRS-1 Receiver Module for a scalable, yet unified solution depending on the number of axes required. The compact form factor of the expanded system won't bulk up smaller rigs. If using the separately available MCS-1 hand unit, the system can be further expanded with the MD-I to assemble a full 3-axis FIZ control system.

Note: MD-Z module will only respond to zoom demands from the controller and will not interface with other modules. A full FIZ system requires the MRS-1, MD-I, and MD-Z units.

UM-3 Digital Motor

The Movcam UM-3 Digital Motor interfaces with Movcam's wireless follow focus systems. Its relatively slight form factor lends itself to use on rigs both large and small. The integrated rod mount is compatible with 19mm rods, and with the included adapter, 15mm rods as well. The rod mount can be secured to the bottom or the side of the unit itself, granting flexible positioning along the side of your lens.
