The Latitude-MB is a best-in-class 2-channel wireless lens control system for cinematographers and independent content creators. It has an operational range of up to 5000ft (1.5km) and fits seamlessly onto any industry standard camera due to its incredibly small and lightweight receiver. Built for the most demanding applications, the Latitude-MB controls focus, iris, and/or zoom with absolute precision using 2 brushless motors that offer faster response, smoother operation, and 4x the service life of brushed motors. Its 4-Axis controller is fully configurable and utilizes FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) over the 2.4GHz band to avoid interference in extremely challenging RF conditions. The Latitude-MB integrates with all RED DSMC and DSMC2 cameras, allowing users to control EF/AF lens focus/iris with their own internal motors, shutter, ISO, and button features (2x magnification, edge, focus assist). Additionally, Foolcontrol users can make use of Latitude-MB built-in WiFi to connect to the camera.

4-Axis Controller

The 4-Axis Controller gives you extraordinarily precise control over your lens with 4 mappable axes (knob, slider, 2x wheels) and a rugged chassis that fits comfortably in your hands. Its FHSS wireless system effectively cuts through the toughest interference and transmits latency-free commands over the 2.4GHz band at up to nearly 5000ft (1.5km). Mounted at the top of the controller is an OLED screen with intuitive menu system for calibration and reference, while the back of the controller features a removable Canon LP-E6 battery, which offers up to 36 hours of continuous runtime.

Latitude-MB Motor Driver Receiver

The Latitude-MB motor driver receiver is lightweight and compact, allowing it to be easily mounted to any industry standard camera. It supports up to 2 motors for FI+Z control (Focus, Iris, and/or Zoom) and includes run/stop support for all industry standard cameras. The system receives commands from any Teradek 4-Axis or 6-Axis Controller at up to 5000ft (1.5km) away and includes automatic or manual (softstop) calibration with a proprietary algorithm for torque control and lens protection. The Latitude-MB is identical to the Latitude-M, but includes a different backplate that allows you to power the receiver with an LP-E6 battery. Battery power makes the Latitude-MB great for super lightweight setups that can run motors at a slightly reduced speed and torque.

MK3.1 Brushless Lens Motor

The MK.3.1 Brushless Motor is a revolution in wireless lens control, offering superior response, smoother operation, and 4 times the service life of brushed motors. The motor never cogs, sparks, or skips and operates nearly silently, even at high speeds.

  • Adjustable motor response for silky smooth to quick and sharp moves
  • Drive gear can be mounted on either side
  • Lightweight, compact chassis design with super thin and flexible cables
  • Support for 15mm/19mm rods with good height adjustment
  • Full range of gears available
  • 2.2Nm maximum allowable torque
