TOOLS FOR THE CINEMATOGRAPHER NAB SHOW 2015


 
Just announced by Canon, the XC10 brings 4K to a compact, versatile system that incorporates a built-in 10x f/2.8-5.6 zoom lens, flip-out 3.0" LCD touchscreen, and a 90-degree rotatable handgrip. Its 1"-type CMOS sensor delivers 8-bit 422 video up to Ultra HD at 24 and 30 fps to CFast 2.0 memory cards. In addition to 4K video, the camera can also capture 12-megapixel photos independently, or extract still images while recording or playing back video. Other notable features include Cinema EOS picture profiles — including the Wide DR and Canon Log — built-in Wi-Fi, and a 4K HDMI 2.0 output. 


The Litepanels Caliber 3-Light Kit is the portable, out-of-the-box lighting solution that today’s professional videographers have been waiting for. Ideal for webcasting, blogging and professional content creators, the compact Caliber 3-Light Kit enables easy travel and fast setup.

The latest addition to Litepanels’ award-winning line of LED Fresnels, the Caliber is a true Fresnel fixture with wide focus range that can be powered via AC or with AA batteries. Each fixture offers focusable output comparable to a 150W tungsten yet requires only 17W to power it. The fixture’s compact size and high intensity output make it a valuable production tool in the field. Weighing in at less than 13 pounds, each kit contains (3) Caliber fixtures, (3) AC Adapters with international plug sets, (3) multi-jointed flexible tripods, and a compact stand with stand adapter, offering additional placement options. Everything comes packaged in a fully customizable soft case, with plenty of additional storage space for batteries, camera lenses and other items.





The Sidefinder is a fully featured HD viewfinder with a flip-out 1080p display. It’s the brilliant, natural union between the SmallHD 500 Series Monitor and a cleverly designed, patent-pending, EVF loupe. The Sidefinder gives shooters all the benefits of using a field monitor AND an EVF, without compromising speed, agility, or quality of the image. The Sidefinder represents the highest resolution EVF and the highest resolution 5-inch on-camera monitor in one device.



 DJI has just announced the latest update to their Phantom line, which looks set to be a direct replacement of the Phantom 2 — the Phantom 3  Quadcopter . Initially two versions will be available, the Advanced Edition identified by silver stripes on the prop arms, and the Professional Edition likewise distinguished by gold stripes. The most notable feature of these new quadcopters — at least as far as the aerial market is concerned — is the incorporation of a purpose-built, 3-axis gimbal stabilized camera system similar to the one currently found on the Phantom 2 Vision+. Differentiating the Advanced and Professional models is the video resolution of the camera. The Advanced tops out at 1080p, while the Professional bumps recording capability up to 4K. On the photos side, both cameras are equally blessed, able to capture 12MP stills in either JPG or DNG RAW format.



Canon has announced the latest addition to its Cinema EOS family — the C300 Mark II. The camera features several major upgrades over its predecessor; most notably, the ability to record 10/12-bit 4K video at either DCI 4K or Ultra HD resolution internally to CFast 2.0 cards. Additional updates include 4K Raw output over 3G-SDI, a 4K-cappable HDMI 2.0 output, and a new OLED electronic viewfinder. The camera is available with either a Canon EF or PL lens mount, with the EF mount version able to take advantage of Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology with compatible lenses.

 The Academy and Partners launch ACES at NAB Show!

The Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) is becoming the industry standard for managing color throughout the life cycle of a motion picture or television production. From image capture through editing, VFX, mastering, public presentation, archiving and future remastering, ACES insures a consistent color experience that preserves the filmmaker’s creative vision. In addition to the creative benefits, ACES addresses and solves a number of significant production, post-production and archiving problems that have arisen with the increasing variety of digital cameras and formats in use, as well as the surge in the number of productions that rely on worldwide collaboration using shared digital image files.

ACES is a free, open, device-independent color management and image interchange system that can be applied to almost any current or future workflow. It was developed by hundreds of the industry’s top scientists, engineers and end users, working together under the auspices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

ACES 1.0 is the first production-ready release of the system, the result of over 10 years of research, testing and field trials. It includes support for a wide variety of digital and film-based production workflows, visual effects, animation and archiving.
