Lenses

Canon

Canon's announcement of a set of cinema primes in PL mount, the Sumire Primes, is a long awaited development for cinematographers. These beautiful new lenses also offer full format coverage. Andy took a first look at the lens set, and his blog has plenty of demo footage.

 

Fujinon

Fujinon has announced the Premista 28-100mm T2.9 Full Format Zoom. This is their first large format cine lens, covering a 46.3mm image circle. The Premista's optical performance rivals that of many prime lenses, with a fast, constant T2.9 maximum aperture. This zoom saves time on lens changes and is also ideal for use on cranes or other rigs where access to the lens is difficult or impossible. Watch Ian's blog for more information.

 

ZEISS

ZEISS has added two new focal lengths—21mm and 135mm—to their Supreme Prime Lens set, which they introduced last May. These full format primes offer a sharp yet organic and color neutral look.

Accessories

Anton Bauer

Anton/Bauer TITON Lithium-ion Batteries feature Titon smart technology, calculating every device powered by the pack, including those powered by the High-Speed USB and P-Tap ports, and transmitting data to the onboard LCD and your compatible EVF. This technology comes in a lightweight, reliable, travel-safe battery you can take anywhere, and it's available in Gold Mount or V-Mount.

 

ARRI

Unlike other bridge plates, ARRI's new SBP-1 Studio Bridge Plate (available for 15mm or 19mm rods) can be attached from above at every position, without needing to slide it from the front or rear. It automatically locks into the sliding position, making it easy for the operator to set the best balance point for the camera body.

 

Atomos

The ATOMOS AtomX SDI Module provides SDI connectivity to your Ninja V, in addition to its existing HDMI capability. With the AtomX, you can monitor and record SDI up to 4Kp60. This expansion system adds functionality to your Ninja V, so you are ready for any legacy or future wireless or wired video standard. The Shogun 7 is an HDR-capable monitor/recorder/switcher all in one compact 7" unit. It offers realtime 4K recording in various formats. Watch Jeff Lee's blog on the Shogun 7 to learn more.

 

Blackmagic Design

Blackmagic Design has several new products at the show including a battery grip for their Pocket Cinema 4K Camera, a MultiDock with four separate SSD or HDD slots, an 8K monitoring solution, and several other post production tools.

 

Core SWX

Core SWX has announced their new Helix line of batteries that accommodate the needs of high-voltage cameras like the ARRI ALEXA LF and Sony VENICE. They work in 14.4V all the way up to 33.3V depending on the battery mounting plate. Watch Jeff Lee's first look for all the details. Core SWX has annonced a new NPF flat pack battery, which you can see on our blog.

 

SmallHD

At first glance, SmallHD's Cine 7 Monitor is a 7” professional Full HD display, but it goes much further by providing ARRI camera control. The Cine 7 Monitor allows you to configure your ARRI ALEXA Mini, ALEX Mini LF or AMIRA camera in real-time within the monitor’s software interface. It also delivers critical lens data in tandem with Teradek RT controllers. The Cine 7 is available in Gold Mount or V-Mount, and Small HD is planning RED and Sony camera control soon. Watch Nic's blog on the Cine 7. They have also announced a 7" Touch Daylight Viewable Monitor.

 

Teradek

Teradek has several new products at the show, which you can read about on our blog. The new Bolt 4K delivers uncompressed 2160p60 HDR video transmission with zero delay. It also features eight times better signal performance and 50% more range than previous systems. Each Teradek Bolt 4K Transmitter can be paired with up to six Teradek receivers and includes Bluetooth connectivity.

Litepanels

Litepanels' Gemini 1x1 Soft Light is based on the design of the Gemini 2x1. Megan took a first look and was impressed by its feature set, versatility, and ease of use. The Gemini 1x1 is a bi-color LED that ranges from 2700K to 6000K in CCT mode. It also includes three Color Modes: HSI, GEL mode, and RGBW. And, since it's flicker-free at any frame rate, it's perfect for use with high-speed cameras.

 

Westcott

Westcott introduced several new lighting kits at NAB, which incorporate their popular Flex Cine lighting technology.
