Hello,

yes, you can use it with white radio handunits.
With WCU-4 you can create a LDA file and send it to the RF motor to use it.

Does it need the lbus port on the pl mount to use mapping? What I'm getting at is if I'm using the ef mount, wcu-4 and these new motors can I use lens mapping on EF mount lenses that have hard stops?

With Alexa mini

Thank you

Hello,

you don´t need the lbus port on the pl mount.
The CForce Mini RF is a combination of CForce Mini and motorcontroller (AMC).
It is not possible to get lens informations direct from the lens to the Motor.
If your EF lens have hard endstops you can create a LDA file and send it to the CForce Mini RF to use it.

for more informations you can also contact as at: service@arri.at

With this setup I would NOT have camera control correct? Playback, white balance etc...

Hello,

in the first released firmware it is not possible to have the camera control.

But, here is a small "spoiler": with the next Firmware it will be possible to change settings on the camera. ;)
