New firmware functionality includes additional features like VFR rate control directly from the handle and long/short clicks for additional flexibility and speed when shooting.
The out of the box Clutch – can control START/STOP and has two rotary push button thumbwheels.
One thumbwheel controls Aperture (clicking it selects the Fn2 button on a Z CAM camera), the other controls ISO and Shutter Speed (clicking the wheel switches between those two functions.
Long clicks of the thumbwheels can be set to a different function (by default long click of front thumbwheel is Fn1 and long click of rear thumbwheel is Fn3)
We worked on ergonomics a lot to make the thumbwheels feel natural for usage during shooting.
One is positioned so it fits directly under the thumb – while not requiring the thumb to rest on it. The other is positioned so the forefinger can naturally access it.
Both Thumbwheels can also be clicked for additional functionality.
The entire handle ends with a standard spaced 1/4″ 20 cheeseplate allowing any kind of mounting people want to use – but we will provide a small cage with a Male Arri Rosette.
CLUTCH is designed in the USA and made of hand-sanded, hand-oiled black walnut wood with a 6061 Hard black anodized aluminum armature holding custom made electronics.
