NAB 2017: Chrosziel Updates

In this video, Timm Stemann of Chrosziel joins me to talk about their latest products being shown at this year’s NAB. Timm shows us Chrosziel’s latest addition to their lens control system, a Focus Thumbwheel.

This thumbwheel can be connected to Chrosziel’s own Magnum system, or any large number of third party systems with the appropriate adapter, and allows you to easily pull focus wirelessly without having to remove your hand from the camera’s grip or tripod pan arm. In addition to focus control, the Focus Thumbwheel also features a record button for triggering connected cameras.

We also looked at the latest addition to their lens control ecosystem, the new Magnum Mini. The Magnum Mini is a compact single channel motor driver. The Mini was designed with the intent of creating the smallest possible footprint on the camera system, perfect for gimbal and aerial applications. For the Magnum hand controller, they have designed a new pan/tilt style friction mount, similar to our own Cameo Swivel Mount, that allows monitors to be quickly adjusted without the need to struggle with sometimes pesky articulating arms.

Other updates to watch out for include a newly designed GH5 cage and support system, a lightweight shoulder support for the Canon C700, as well as a new, smaller articulating arm named the Rocky.
