Lens Control & Adaptors


Preston G4 FI+Z wireless LCS


The FI+Z is a 3-channel lens and camera control system. This latest version of an industry classic brings together robust construction, high precision and intuitive operation. The system can control both lens functions (focus, iris, and zoom) as well as camera functions (speed, shutter angle, and VTR).


mini LCS.001


Small and lightweight, the WCU-4 cforce mini is an intelligent motor that adjusts lens settings on weight-optimized camera configurations with remarkable speed and torque. Equipped with twin LBUS connectors and using daisy chain technology, up to three cforce mini motors can be linked in a row.

The c-force mini connects directly to the new ALEXA Mini camera providing a super-lightweight, integrated solution.



The Single Axis Unit SXU-1 is a simple single channel hand unit that can be set up to control focus, iris or zoom. The SXU-1 can be used along the WCU-4 for separate iris control, perhaps operated by the cinematographer in situations where subtle exposure adjustments are required during travelling shots.
