Does anyone use the cPro with an OCU-1?
I find the ocu-1 quite useful for quickly adjusting focus while next yo the camera/changing lens, without having to carry or go back yo your handset. Also like to give the operator the iris control so I don’t disengage the motor and see the iris live.
My question is, I just tried it with the cPro and realised the override function doesn’t work.
That means the only way to give control to the ocu-1 is by turning off the axis on the cPro (which is deep in the menu) and you cannot do it from the ocu-1 side.
Is that a incompatibility issue? If so is it on the cPro or ocu-1 side?
It’s a shame since they are both lbus and working together that you can’t use their most useful common function.
Hello Vlassis !
As far as I know, the OCU-1 was design to work along with the ARRI WCU-4.
Even if there is a corparation between ARRI and CMOTION on some products, the CPRO is not compatible with ARRI's wireless systeme. Therefore, there are some devices which will partially work. Clemmens might correct me on this but I think this incompatibility is more based on comercial agreements than a real hardware issue.
I would tend to say that the incompatibility is on the CPRO side. Like you said both are using LBUS protocole but I don't think the CPRO "knows" how to handle the override fonction, yet.
Maybe we can hope it's a subject of negaciations between ARRI and CMOTION.
