[ADDED STABILITY] from a Side Handle Provides More Flexibility When Operating and Handling
[POWER ACCESSORIES] via 8V USB-C and 12V Micro DC Ports
[START/STOP RECORDING] via the Run Stop Button and optional Run Stop Cable
[ROTATABLE] Mounting Options Allow for More Flexibility when Mounting your Handle
[FOCUS CONTROL] Power and Control the Nucleus Nano via an optional USB-C to Micro USB Cable
This advanced handle attaches to the right side of Tiltaing camera cages.
A battery port on the bottom of the handle allows you to use a Sony F570 battery to power the Nucleus Nano motor via the 8V USB-C power output. A 12V DC output is also integrated into the handle.
A built-in finger wheel allows you to control the Nucleus Nano motor and a run/stop button allows you to control the record start/stop function of your camera through an optional Nucleus-Nano R/S cable (for cameras that support this function).
NOTE: The Type V Adapter features a Tilta Standard Rosette which is compatible with some, but not all ARRI Rosettes

From a functionality point of view it works great. But room for improvement:
*) Grip could be a bit wider (thicker) because it happens that you accidentally hit the CAL button
*) No wireless communication makes it useless on a Gimbal. Common, we live in 2022. At least the one option would be good. The dedicated wireless gimbal handles from Tilta can not be mounted on a rig so you need basically two ore more handles for the same purpose.
*) The handle has two tiny m3 screws holding 5-10 kg depending on setup. Doesn‘t give lots of confidence.
I’m completely brand new to cinema cameras and the rigs that go along with it. There was a bit learning curve to the focus set up. I watched a couple YouTube videos and I was off and ready. The grip feels good and has good agronomics. The build quality is exactly what I expected from Tilta.

I really love it, but its not perfect. Ideally it needs; a control lock button, bluetooth so I can use it with my DJI RS2 and control the motor. no matter what cable I used it it will not trigger my Canon R5 to run/stop record. So overall a little useless - but almost epic.
I'm using this on my BMPCC 4k with the Nucleus Nano. I love the Nato adapter, which makes it easy to mount to the camera or to my shoulder rig.
The A/B functions are smooth, although I'd like to see some kind of read out on the Nano screen reflecting the different modes, like it does for the REC (which doesn't even work with the BMPCC4k).
I'm also having a really hard time finding any firmware updates on this site.
Besides those 2 things, it's a really great, well-built handle.
