The Hi-5 Hand Unit Basic Set from ARRI offers advanced wireless multi-axis camera and lens control via a large knob, instant reconnection, a high-contrast touchscreen LCD, powerful signal, and a modular, highly customizable design. Included with the set are the Hi-5 body, a Bluetooth dongle, a Smart focus ring, the RF-EMIP Radio Module 2400 MHz DSSS, two LBP-3500 battery packs, an LBP battery charger, a hand strap, a neck strap, and a screen protector.
Features include hot-swapping battery support, optional radio modules for different regions, user-defined function buttons, pre-marked Smart focus rings, an integrated NATO rail, and a waterproof design to use in all-weather environments. Using the included Bluetooth dongle, the Hi-5 can be configured and updated using the ECS Sync app for iOS. It can also be used to update LBUS devices and configure the Hi-5. The included 2400 MHz radio module allows you to connect wirelessly with the RIA-1 radio interface adapter. It features 14 channels and is also backward compatible with white-coded radio EMIP modules.
The 4-pin LBUS ports allow you to hardwire the unit to your ARRI camera to control your lens functions, and you can purchase optional licenses to control cameras such as RED, Panavision, and Sony. The Hi-5 is also compatible with the cforce mini RF using the separately available RF-EMIP radio module. Other features include customizable focus knob operation, Focusbug Cine RT support, and compatibility with one included or various optional pre-marked Smart focus rings with electronic detection. It is powered using the included LBP-3500 Li-Ion batteries.
ARRI has once again expanded the filmmaking landscape with the new Hi-5 Hand Control Unit, and we here at B&H Photo are happy to announce it. This is ARRI’s 5th-generation hand control unit, and an exciting leap forward in functionality. While it may look like a simple controller for a wireless lens control system, don’t be fooled―the Hi-5 is a sophisticated filmmaking tool designed to be robust enough to work in the field, and flexible enough to handle many a situation that has defeated other wireless control systems in the past. The Hi-5 is available by itself as the Hand Unit, as well as in a variety of kits, including the Hand Unit Body Kit, the Hand Unit Basic Kit without Batteries, and the Hand Unit Basic Kit with Batteries.
It would almost make more sense to say what can’t it do; well, it can’t make coffee. But pair it with a digital cinema camera and the Hi-5 becomes your control center for shooting with your camera. The Hi-5 works as a multi-axis lens-control unit with a high-contrast touch control screen suitable for use outside, and it has a powerful wireless system that can cut through most interference. It also supports swappable radio modules that allow you to use this one unit in a variety of regions as well as different radio environments. If that isn’t enough, the ARRI Hi-5 offers full camera control from the handset, and not just for ARRI cameras; available accessories allow you to interface with cameras from manufacturers other than ARRI. Available smart focus rings mount on the Hi-5 and are pre-marked for a variety of ARRI lenses. Additionally, you can use the Hi-5 to map those lens rings to your specific lenses, for fast lens swaps while retaining your focus marks. As is standard with ARRI products, the Hi-5 is designed for years of use, with superior rain, temperature, and dust protection.
It isn’t just about the physical hardware. The Hi-5 is software based, which allows it to be adapted easily to your camera, shooting environment, and situation, minimizing the amount of support gear you have to carry. With the Hi-5 you can access the ARRI ECS Sync app, which allows you to store and download lens files in the cloud, so you can access them from almost anywhere, when you need them. You can also save all the information and settings stored in your Hi-5 as a log file and send it to ARRI service if needed. The Hi-5 supports LBUS devices and can be hardwired to an ARRI camera if desired; it can also connect to and control ARRI’s stabilized heads, reducing the amount of gear you need to carry.
Remember those swappable radio modules? These allow you to have not only the latest in wireless transmission technology that can cut through interference and allow you to work at different radio frequencies, but for those with legacy gear, ARRI hasn’t forgotten about the investment you’ve made in earlier technology that is still viable. So ARRI has built a backward-compatible radio module that lets you connect with ARRI’s white-coded radio (EMIP) modules such as the ALEXA Mini and cforce mini RF. With up to 14 channels, this module lets you take advantage of the Hi-5’s advanced feature set, using your older gear. Other available radio modules support strong protection from RF interference and feature 100 channels to choose from, as well as frequency hopping in either the 900 or 2400 MHz range.
Versatile and robust, the Hi-5 is a powerful tool built to withstand harsh filmmaking environments, whether indoors, outdoors, in inclement weather, or soaring temperatures, and even a noisy RF environment locally, or when shooting in foreign countries.
