The Nucleus Nano II combines camera, gimbal, and motor control into a single unit. Camera control functionality depends on what camera you are using. The Nano II communicates with cameras via a LANC cable, WiFi, Bluetooth, and the motor’s USB-C port for compatible camera systems such as Canon, Sony, Black Magic Design, and more.

This makes the Nano II a good option for filmmakers who regularly utilize support systems like Drones, Car Mounts, Cranes, Gimbals, or any other rig that makes it difficult to adjust camera settings quickly.

Interactive Touch Screen Control

The interactive touchscreen control was designed to offer easy access to settings with just one touch. This lets the user make quick adjustments without fumbling with buttons or menus. Tilta claims the touchscreen is highly responsive and offers an intuitive user experience. You can control two focus motors from the compact controller. One rocker switch and the main FIZ. Users can utilize the Main Dial to adjust focus, while the new Control Rocker handles Zoom or Iris functions via a dampened Rocker, perfect for easing in or out of zooms.

The Nano II FIZ can store lens information that can be recalled. The lens mapping control screen offers real-time focus distance information, allowing you to stay informed and in control of every frame without relying on physically marking a focus disc.
