I am about to start a production using the Alexa Mini with a gimbal.
As we are using non-LDS lenses, I have made custom lens tables for focus and iris using the WFU-4.
However, the only way I can see to load a new lens table is through the dedicated menu on the Viewfinder Flip-out screen.
But when on a gimbal, the viewfinder is not on the rig, so it has to be re-connected when switching lenses in order to load a new
lens table.
Am I missing something, is there a more convenient way to do this?
Say, by being able to choose a new lens table through the WFU-4 menu?

Kind regards, Patrik

Dear Patrik,

Thanks for your feedback. You are right that lens tables can be selected throught the ALEXA Mini viewfinder, and another currently avaiable option is the wifi web interface.
We plan making lens files selectable though the WCU-4 handset in future.

Kind regards,
Hendrik Voss
