Introducing: FocusPLUS PRO

FocusPLUS PRO is a motorized, ultra-precise follow focus controllable by edelkrone APP, edelkrone Controller, or even by hand.

It operates as a stand-alone solution or with all edelkrone motion control setups that include the new HeadPLUS v2 or the previous generation HeadPLUS (v1).

When used with HeadPLUS v2, FocusPLUS PRO keeps the target in the frame and in focus. FocusPLUS PRO operates with a single LP-E6 battery or with an AC/DC adapter.

There are so many advantages of the new follow focus, however, the biggest news is that FocusPLUS PRO can be also hand-controlled, which is the easiest way to control motion control products! Just set your camera's position by hand, focus on your object, and store that multi-axis keypose for later use!

Here are the outstanding features that come with new FocusPLUS PRO:

  • Wireless edelkrone ecosystem integration,
  • Fast & simple programming,
  • Stand-alone solution with long lasting LP-E6 battery,
  • Hand control,

  • Ready for PRO lenses,
  • FocusPLUS PRO even includes a Link port for future extensibility.

FocusPLUS PRO is now available to buy here.

Coming Soon: Vision Module for HeadPLUS v2

Vision Module is an add-on for HeadPLUS which helps you achieve automatic face tracking while viewing live camera feed directly on edelkrone App.

It attaches on HeadPLUS v2 or HeadPLUS v2 PRO and fits in edelkrone motion control ecosystem perfectly!

Vision Module is ideal companion for one-person crews and provides groundbreaking live tracking on camera LCD.

Vision Module is coming soon, so we suggest you stay up-to-date when it becomes available!

New Mode: Gesture Control for edelkrone Controller

Gesture control mode lets you move your edelkrone setup with your hand gestures without physical contact.

You can trigger the gesture mode by pressing and holding the center button at the suitable control page at the main screen after connecting with your setup.

Once you activate the Gesture Control Mode, the system will ask for a calibration.
This calibration is necessary for a drift-free and smooth mapping experience between your hand gestures and device movements.
So, after the calibration, edelkrone Controller will expect a hand gesture from you.

With Gesture Mode, you can only control one axis at a time. To further explain it:

Head Pan and Jib Pan controls are mapped to the Yaw axis.
Head Tilt and Jib Tilt controls are mapped to the Pitch axis.
Swing and Slide controls are mapped to the Roll axis.

Focus controls are not supported in gesture mode.

How much you move your hand on a particular axis will correlate with the speed of the motion which is also graphically visualized on the screen in real-time.

This feature is enabled by default on your device with the latest edelkrone Controller update, which is version 0.18. If you want, you can disable this feature from 'Advance Features' page in the Settings menu.

edelkrone Cap is available in Black and Orange colors and available to order here.

Introducing: Power Module

Power up your entire edelkrone setup with a single, long-lasting battery by splitting a V-Mount or Gold Mount battery output into four separate DC jacks. Power Module reduces battery and charger maintenance by dramatically decreasing the number of standard battery swaps. Thanks to the high power capacity of V-Mount and Gold Mount batteries, you can shoot longer and achieve uninterrupted productions. You can now easily power each edelkrone motion control combination, such as JibONE, Pan PRO, and HeadPLUS, by a single power source.

Keypose Mode

The simplest way to program your motions is the Keypose Mode. After deciding your pose, press and hold any of the keypose buttons to save that pose. Both the edelkrone App and the Controller allow you to save more than 2 poses for easy recall. Simultaneously pressing 2 keypose buttons puts the system in a loop between both poses. It’s that simple!

Keypose Mode is available for all edelkrone motion control products.

Live Target Switching

HeadPLUS is the only head in the world with the Smart Object Tracking feature. You can teach up to 3 targets to HeadPLUS and even perform target switching whenever you want throughout your slide. Such motions could never be achieved with such ease before. This is a must-have for live scenarios. The perfect target tracking brings greater visual perception in interviews, product shots, and VFX works.

Hand Control

JibONE, HeadPLUS, and Slide Module have hand-control ability. Just position your camera with your hand and save your pose. When using Target Mode with the Laser Module add-on, framing your object will also be extremely fast. Point the laser on the desired object and save it. Using one or both of these features will save incredible time on sets!

Smart Target Tracking

HeadPLUS is the only head in the world with the Smart Object Tracking feature. While your camera is moving on edelkrone Sliders, Dollies, and JibONE, you can make HeadPLUS track any surrounding target. HeadPLUS has the ability to do automatic panning, tilting, and focus pulling to keep the target in frame, giving you outstanding parallax scenes without any difficult programming.

The feature offered by competitors for targeting objects is to look at the object from two points and give a linear transition. As you can see in this infographic, it does not keep the object exactly in the center because the pan and tilt speeds must be variable during the camera movement for the real target tracking.
