compact ONE

The easy-to use one motor system

The compact ONE is an easy-to use one motor LCS, which comes ready to shoot with either ARRI`s CLM-4 or CLM-5 motor, offering start/stop cables for most standard cameras.

Easy-to-use at a low price

compact ONE is the ready-to-use entry level one axis control system from cmotion. Both the camin and the hand controller follow the same design as the regular compact LCS, making it the most ergonomic system in this competitive price range.

The single page menu clearly displayed on the integrated 2.3” screen guarantees an easy plug and play set-up and includes features such as automatic and manual motor calibration, adjustable digital lens limits, motor torque adjustment, direction control and run/stop command.

Each compact ONE set is supplied with either a CLM-4 or CLM-5 motor. With a total on-board weight of less than 600g (with CLM-4 motor), compact ONE is the ideal system for any stabilizing system. Additional run/stop cables are available for ARRI, Blackmagic, Canon, Red and Sony.
