The Axes and ALEXA Remote Control

ARRI Wireless Compact Unit WCU-4 is a lightweight, ergonomic hand unit offering up to 3-axis lens control.

Rugged and splash proof, it features an easy-to-read lens data display, vibrating feedback alerts that allow focus pullers to keep their eyes on the action and ALEXA remote control functionality.
