THE NEW ERA IN CMOTION LENS CONTROL SYSTEMS

ABOUT THE cPRO LINE

 

cPRO is cmotion`s latest LCS line up. Ready to use sets consist of an ergonomic and intuitive cPRO hand unit paired with either a cPRO motor, or a cPRO camin.

All main components are equipped with the latest cmotion RF module and the LBUS interface allows the system to be expanded by simply connecting up to three (two for cPRO motor) popular cforce mini or cforce plus motors.


The cPRO hand unit is designed to be a feature packed work horse which offers ultimate control in a compact and balanced shape.

The unit stands out with its balanced and ergonomic design paired with innovative control features.

The innovative thumb wheel positioned beneath the touch display provides quick and easy access to the system‘s extensive menu settings even while wearing gloves. In addition to this, the thumb wheel can be assigned as a fully functional 4th axis controller.

The newly designed focus knob with a concave fingertip moulding, mechanical hard stops and anti-slip grip has been developed to meet the needs of the most demanding focus puller.

The illuminated marker ring, marker strip, user buttons and a zoom position LED display ensures cPRO provides clear information and feedback in any shooting environment.

Additional add-ons including a cstrap mount (for cmotion’s neck /shoulder strap) and an innovative monitor mount for balanced mounting and positioning of your monitor completes the set-up.

Mechanically, the cPRO motor is based on the incredibly popular cforce mini. However, this motor benefits from a built-in RF module. Incorporating the wireless module into the motor eliminates the need for an extra unit being mounted on the camera. This combination reduces both the weight and costs of a ready to use system.

2 user buttons provide a simple interface for setting the motor scale, triggering motor calibration and selecting one of the 14 RF channels to pair with the new cPRO hand unit.

Using the LBUS interface, the system can be expanded with up to 2 additional cforce motors while the new CAM connector provides a versatile interface for power supply and run/stop control (*plus camera feedback) for cameras including ARRI, RED, SONY, CANON, BLACKMAGIC and PANAVISION. 

 


The cPRO camin is cmotion’s smallest camin yet!

It offers an LBUS interface to connect up to 3 daisy-chained cforce motors and a new CAM connector providing power input, run/stop control and camera feedback for popular cameras including ARRI, RED, SONY, CANON and BLACKMAGIC.

Through RED’s open protocol, cPRO offers wireless control over internal focus and iris scales on EF lenses for an ultra-lightweight configuration.
