axiiio nano Starter Kit

Everything you need to start using the world's most flexible camera motion control system.

Multiple rigs from one system

With the starter kit you can create a whole series of single axis rigs for photographic and camera motion tasks.


Tilt rig

Add a camera L bracket to the included axiiio motion pancake to create a tilt axis.


Pan rig

Follow the action by creating a pan rig using a motion pancake, motor and axiiio nano receiver.


Roll rig

By adding an L bracket to the mix, you can turn the system into an automated roll axis.


Slider rig

The axiiio nano system can be installed on many different types of sliders using either a belt or capstan drive.


Lens control

Simply install the axiiio nano motor rod clamp to the motor to turn a motion axis into a lens control axis.


2nd operator rig

The axiiio nano receiver has outputs already built-in to control pitch and yaw on third-party stabiliser rigs. We will be releasing information on which stabilisers are supported in the coming months.

What's Included

nano  Receiver

x 1

The brain of the system. More info here...

nano Motors

x 1

Our custom designed servo motors. More info here...

nano Pancake

x 1

A rotation axis for motion experimentation. More info here...

Power Supply

A multi IO trigger output lead for triggering your camera. Used with the trigger lead below.

Trigger Lead

x 1

Your choice of supported camera trigger lead to plug into your camera.

Programming Lead

x 1

Programming lead for receiver firmware updates and external PC control.

Power Lead

x 1

A power lead for for connecting the receiver to the power supply or V-lock battery.

Single axis shooting with one system

You can perform a multitude of shots with just a singles axis of control

Single axis  effects

This shot was performed with only one motor, pancake and receiver. Two passes were performed, the first as a timelapse and the second as a standard motion take. The two were comped together to create this shot.

Product photography

Automating product photography is simple. You can set up a shoot using a turntable to take multiple photos from many different angles. Tether your camera to your favourite picture capture software for a fully automated solution.

Focus pulls

Precise focusing is easy and repeatable. From the tip of the Lego man's gun to his face small precise moves keeping razor sharp focus is possible. You can use our incredibly intuitive screen controller for pulling focus manually or set cues for one touch focus.

Create your own rigs

The flexibility of the axiiio nano system gives you the ability to automate many different types of equipment. Sliders, focus stacking rigs, flying foxes and many other types of rig can be created with some imagination and the equipment you already own. We'll be exploring some of these options on the axiiio lab channel in our Haxiiio playlist.

One system – expandable

Add motors and pancakes to expand a single axis into 4.

Create your own rigs

If you want to create your own rigs, the axiiio nano system is flexible enough for you to build anything you can imagine. The axiiio nano motors can control rotational or linear motion, including lens control, so you can build any rig to suit your needs.

Flexibility is standard

Engineered for tool-less assembly and extremely simple and fast to set up, the heart of the axiiio nano system is the motor and pancake. Convert a lens ring motor to linear or rotational control in seconds. One motor—one system.

ProMoCo software that makes it easy

ProMoCo is a fully featured motion control package that has been designed to run on phones and tablets. Available on iOS and Android.


Create a rig

If you want to build your own rigs using the axiiio nano system, our ProMoCo software makes that very simple. You can build a control set for up to 4 axes with your choice of software controllers. If you have a tilt/pan axis in mind you can use a joystick controller. If it's a focus axis you want, you can use our super responsive lens controller. Mix and match them in any combination to create a customised set of controls for your rig.


Use a preset

If you just want to avoid the hassle of setting up your own controllers, ProMoCo has you covered. All of our kits have presets that can be configured by scanning a QR code. We'll be providing a library of lens marks for many popular lenses, that can also be loaded as presets for focus pulling and general lens duties.


Infinitely adjustable

Unlike any other motion control system, ProMoCo software controllers are infinitely tweakable with a number of parameters that you can set to make them responsive to your control style. You can even create left-handed or right-handed controller sets!


More programming options

Controlling camera motion has never been simpler with ProMoCo. Set up start and end marks for the axes you want to control and hit run. You can tweak the program and change its type (time-lapse, stop motion, video motion) while retaining the same clip length, making composite effects very easy.
