The ARRI cforce mini RF is a brilliant wireless lens motor for compact camera setups. With the motor controller built into the motor, and only a single cable for power and start/stop control, it is fast to set up and incredibly lightweight for handheld, gimbal and Steadicam.

Both the DP and I were thrilled, because the radio connection of the cforce mini RF with the SXU-1 was excellent even through several walls and backdrops, but also because there was no need for an additional motor controller.

You save on weight and cable routing with this new RF motor, while still giving the AC the ability to have LDAs.

The WCU‑4 has been an absolute game-changer and with the cforce RF motor, using a WCU‑4 on any camera has never been easier.
