Amongst these features are the vibrating markers. Arri created the unit so that it will vibrate to prompt the user once focus markers are reached. This allows camera operators to keep their eyes on the scene, not their gear. Furthermore, the WCU-4 boasts a focus knob with the option for backlighting. In low light conditions, the operator can turn on the integrated light, illuminating the focus marks. The screen on this unit is also very sizable. It measures 3 inches, a large display for the user to read lens and camera data. It can also show data from optional ultrasonic distant measurement devices. According to Arri, “The transflective display technology ensures perfect readability in all ambient lighting conditions.”
Finally, focus tracking. The WCU-4 user button can be configured to activate focus tracking. This means setting the focus motor to continuously follow a subject by using an ultrasonic distance measurer. Focus tracking works with ARRI’s Ultrasonic Distance Measure UDM-1 and ALEXA Plus or Studio cameras or the Universal Motor Controller UMC-4.
