    Chrosziel has started MōVI Pro API integration into their MagNum wireless FIZ. First integration version to be released will include:
    • Focus, Iris and Zoom control
    • Triggering Camera Run / stop
    • Start Auto-Calibrating the lens motors
    • Clearing faults
    • Setting subrange lens limits
    This will be all integrated in combination with the 4 assignable user keys from the MagNum Hand Unit with its already established features.

    Are we missing any additional features of the MōVI Pro you would love to control from the Hand Unit?

    Hi Timm. I think an option to change between different modes will be great for complex shots. As well as focus puller is in charge of R/S the camera and FIZ the option to change from Dual Operation mode to Majestic can be very helpful on the set. Dont know if this is possible to do with the API.

    Hi Juan, do you mean just turning of control to hand it back over to the operator? We could do that by just turning off the Hand Unit as an example.

    Hi Timm,

    That is great news you guys are doing this!

    I think exploring being able to output standard LANC controls from the CAM port on the TSU would be pretty amazing, it could also be great to somehow integrate Hirose 20pin lens control. This would be a great way of controlling new RAW cameras like the Canon C200 with the 18-80mm zoom without having to carry any extra weight of a 3rd part FIZ box.

    All the best and keep us updated with progress.

    Sam

    Hi Sam,
    great idea. We already control equipment via the protocols you mentioned with our MagNum lens control. Let me have a look if we can make it work with the protocols. However a small PCB needs to be added since we have to do add some intelligence.
