Single Axis

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. Alternatively it can be used with the SMC-1 single motor controller, providing a simple, low cost option to productions that do not need multi-axis wireless lens control.

Backlit Focus Knob

The super-smooth focus knob contains an integrated light source that shines through the wide focus ring in low light conditions, thus providing clearly readable focus marks at all times.

Exceptional Quality and Service

The SXU-1 embodies the reliability and durability for which ARRI is famous. Wear and tear parts are replaceable at rental level, and the worldwide ARRI Service network ensures rapid second level support if needed. New firmware versions can be installed to the unit via SD card.
