Quotes

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.

Cinematographer Markus Förderer, ASC, BVK (Known for: Nightflyers, Rise, Independence Day: Resurgence, Stonewall, I Origins, Finsterworld, Hell and many others)

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.

1st AC Georg Lanz (Known for: Die Rückkehr des Königs, Passionsspiele, Die Erfindung Bayerns and many more)

Save on weight and cable routing with this new RF motor while giving the AC the ability to still have LDA’s.

1st AC Brian Aichlmayr (Known for: Playing God, Dropa, Sanitatum, Osprey, Commercials for Brands such as Walmart, Nike, Intel, Reebok, Facebook, Adidas and many more)

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.
