ARRI Hi-5 Hand Unit

Read all about it. The new ARRI Hi-5 is featured in Film and Digital Times August 2021 edition. Download free PDF.

Hi-5 highlights:

  1. Tail Slate Mode protects you from the muscle memory impulse to cut when the Director says “Cut.”
  2. The display screen lets you navigate by touch or buttons. 
  3. There are 10 pre-engraved focus rings. A smart chip is embedded within each ring and the Hi-5 automatically adjusts accordingly.
  4. OCU-1 Camera Operator override and Focus Puller handoff is seamless and good.
  5. Hi-5 has a built-in base so it can rest at a comfortable angle on a flat surface like your Inovativ Echo camera cart’s top shelf. 
  6. A pivoting bracket slides onto the Hi-5’s top NATO rail to support a monitor. 
  7. Three different Radio Modules plug into the rear of Hi-5 for different ranges and regions.
  8. All Hi-5 units include ALEXA camera control by default. Sony and RED camera control is planned with a future software update.
  9. Focusbug Cine RT Ultrasonic Rangefinder System integration is expected with future firmware updates.
