The cPRO hand unit is a feature packed work horse offering ultimate control in a balanced and ergonomic design. Introducing innovative features inspired by the focus puller community, cPRO supports the needs of the most demanding focus puller.
Not only have cmotion re-designed the focus knob with a non-slip concave fingertip moulding, the mechanical hard stops and unique “PANIC” button allows the focus puller to overrule mechanical hard stops on the fly. So, whether shooting slate or following a subject that misses their mark, with cPRO, limits don’t need to be limiting!
The intuitive thumb wheel positioned beneath the touch display provides quick and easy access to the cPRO’s extensive menu settings even while wearing gloves. In addition, the thumb wheel can be assigned as a fully functional 4th axis controller.
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. Whether using existing accessories including the cstrap or cspider, or specially developed accessories such as the perfectly balanced monitor bracket and quick release v-lock mount, the cPRO hand unit creates a new era in focus pulling.
Same ergonomic design, same quality, same rich features – for ONE axis control. The NEW cPRO ONE hand unit is the latest addition to the cPRO family. Packed with the same innovative features the cPRO ONE is developed from the original (Cine Gear Technical Award-winning) concept of the cPRO LCS. With its smooth control knob, mechanical limits, and unique “panic button”, the cPRO ONE is an ideal addition to any existing cPRO LCS network, allowing any axis to be assigned to an independent wireless controller. But, that’s not all. By assigning the integrated thumbwheel, the cPRO ONE can be used as a versatile two axis controller. Compatible with cmotion’s Cinefade VariND through either a cPRO motor or cPRO camin, cPRO ONE can also be assigned for dynamic variable ND / RotaPola control or the (Cinec Award-winning) Cinefade effect, independent from the focus puller.
Whether you are looking to split out iris control from an existing cPRO LCS, get creative with the Cinefade VariND, or simply start out with a new revolutionary ONE (or two) axis lens control system, cPRO has you covered.
Mechanically, the cPRO motor is based on the popular cforce mini. However, this motor benefits from a built-in cmotion Red RF module and an optimized motor and gearbox for increased speed and reaction.
Incorporating the wireless module into the motor eliminates the need for an extra unit being mounted on the camera. This combination reduces weight, cables and setup time of a ready to shoot system.
Using the LBUS interface, the cPRO motor set can be expanded with up to 2 additional cforce motors while the new CAM connector provides a versatile interface for power supply, run/stop control *camera feedback, *tally and **camera control for popular cameras including ARRI, RED, SONY, CANON, BLACKMAGIC and PANAVISION.
*Not available on all cameras **Available for selected ARRI cameras from Q3 2019 – Optional license required
cPRO motor data sheet:
As an alternative to the cPRO motor set, and for customers with existing cforce motors, cmotion offer a cPRO camin set.
This kit includes the smallest wireless motor box ever developed by cmotion. Using the LBUS interface, up to 3 cforce motors (mini or plus) can be connected to the camin to create a full 3 axis system for use with the cPRO hand unit. And, the new CAM connector provides a versatile interface for power supply, run/stop control, *camera feedback, *tally and **camera control for popular cameras including ARRI, RED, SONY, CANON, BLACKMAGIC and PANAVISION.
Through RED’s open protocol, the cPRO camin kit (with optional cable) can even control the internal focus and iris scales on EF lenses for an ultra-lightweight configuration (e.g. for drone and gimbal applications).
