Rent ARRI WCU-4 AMC-1 Focus Controller | Adorama Rentals
Rent the ARRI WCU-4 Wireless Compact Unit. Features 3-axis control, transreflective display technology & compatibility with select ARRI & AMIRA cameras.

Use an ARRI Focus Unit to Remotely Shoot Videos
An advanced toolset for wireless lens and camera function control on set, the ARRI WCU-4 hand unit offers up to 3-axis lens control. This feature lets you control camera functions, focus, iris, and/or zoom from a distance while you shoot handheld or utilize a stabilizer, gimbal, or crane. The device also features an integrated lens data display that enables it to show camera settings and status when an ALEXA camera is in use. The screen reflects ambient light and remains clearly visible even in direct sunlight.
Aside from the aforementioned features, the WCU-4 boasts a newly-designed, super-smooth focus knob and backlit, optionally pre-marked focus rings. It has an ergonomic, pressure-sensitive zoom knob, as well as a button that users can program. Both of these controls can be found on and under the unit's handle on its left side.
Futhermore, the device features compatibility with various ARRI cameras and motor controllers that have a white-coded radio modem. You can even attach the unit to a rig with multiple mounting points in 3/8"ƒ-16, ¼ƒ-20, and M4 threads. The WCU-4 is fully splash-proof and offers tough, all-day comfort.

Key features include:

•3-axis control in a lightweight body
•Transflective display technology
•Backlit focus knob
•Vibrating markers and pre-marked focus rings
•For ARRI ALEXA Mini, Plus, Studio, and AMIRA cameras
•For UMC-1, SMC-1, EMC-1, and AMC-1 controllers
•Multiple mounting options, including ?ƒ-16, ¼ƒ-20, and M4 mounts

Control Iris, Focus, & Zoom with the WCU 4
The WCU-4 offers reliable 3-axis lens control for iris, focus, and zoom functions. Pressing one of the buttons next to the unit's display lets you easily set marks and limits for these functions. The Iris menu lets you set iris motor limits and slider locking, while the Focus function has two modes: MOTOR and MARKER modes. The WCU-4's lower three soft buttons switch between these modes when you press the MOTOR/MARKER soft button. The three buttons can perform various functions, ranging from setting motor limits to individual focus mark removal. You can also configure the unit's user button for focus tracking activation. This allows its focus motor to continuously track subjects through an ultrasonic distance measurer.
Lastly, the Zoom menu on the WCU-4 enables you to set zoom motor limits and zoom control speed. It also lets you lock the unit's zoom stick.

View Lens & Camera Data Clearly, Even in Ambient Light
You can view organized yet readable lens and camera data on the unit's large 3" LCD. The display offers ample space for both camera and unit status data, distance measurements from ultrasonic devices, or graphical lens information. It also features transreflective technology, which ensures that these data sets are fully readable in all ambient lighting situations.
Moreover, extensive camera data is available in the unit. These sets of information enable fast camera setting confirmation. They include battery levels, the current recording codec in use, and even the lens name.

Adjust Focus Knob Friction & View Focus Markings Easily in Low Light
The WCU-4's focus knob features adjustable friction and holds a built-in light source. The first feature allows you to change friction without using any tools. On the other hand, the unit's integrated light source presents clearly readable focus markings in low light conditions. This happens when the source radiates through the device's wide focus ring. And if you need to darken or lighten the knob's illumination, you can do so on the unit.

Use Vibrating Markers & Focus Rings to Achieve Greater Focus
This device comes equipped with vibrating markers, which is considered to be one of its most innovative features. These markers deliver haptic feedback for electronic markers and limits. Using this particular feature, the WCU-4 can alert you whenever you've reached pre-set limits or stops. Thus, you'll be able to pay more attention to on-set activity. This can also result in greater accuracy of focus.
As for lens scale mapping, you can use an optional, pre-marked focus ring that comes in either Metric or Imperial scale. The accessory is backlit, making it readable in the dark.

Use the ARRI Focus Unit with ARRI Cameras & Motor Controllers
The WCU-4 boasts ALEXA Mini, ALEXA Plus, and Studio camera compatibility. It can also be used with UMC-4, SMC-1, EMC-1, and AMC-1 motor controllers. You can even control the ALEXA Mini and almost all other ALEXA cameras remotely through the addition of an optional software license to the unit. And when you use the ARRI AMIRA together with the UMC-4 controller, you'll be able to control the former's camera functions.
On the other hand, the optional UDM-1 device and ALEXA Plus or Studio cameras can be paired together with the unit's focus tracking function. The UMC-4 controller can also be utilized with the UDM-1.

Customize the Unit with Personalized Settings & Configurations
You can customize the WCU-4 to your liking, from adjusting its display to utilizing a personalized, programmable user button. You can also customize any unit instantly from anywhere when you've saved your favorite settings on an SD card. Various accessories can even be attached to the WCU-4 through multiple mounting options, including mini monitor brackets. 3/8"ƒ-16, ¼ƒ-20, and M4 threads make up these options. Other components such as passive and active motors, cameras from other manufacturers, ENG lenses, and several wireless units can be paired with this device.

Enjoy Comfort, Portability, & Quality While Shooting
Along with a fully splash-proof design, the WCU-4 incorporates ARRI's well-known reliability and strength. It's also highly portable at approximately 1.7 lbs. This makes the device one of the most lightweight hand units on the market. The unit even has multiple components that you can exchange for new ones, making it an easily serviceable gadget.
Furthermore, DV/HDV camcorder batteries, such as Sony's Lithium M NP-FM 500H, supply electrical power to the WCU-4. You can also use an SD card to easily install new firmware versions and upcoming feature options on the WCU-4.
