DCS Update

Summer is here, a time between Cine Gear Expo and IBC, which is usually a chance for the team at DCS to take a little breather. However, with so much news coming out of Cine Gear, our greatly expanded activities there, and the resulting additional post, there's been no time to kick back. That said, we couldn't be more pleased with all the great interviews we captured with renowned Filmmakers and Technologists at Cine Gear. With over 16,000 production professionals attending the Expo on the Paramount backlot, it was easy to find interesting people and topics to cover.  In lieu of an essay this month, we have provided short descriptions of the interviews and separate links to pick out those of interest or watch all twenty as a series.

The coverage from our annual Cine Gear Expo Lens event is also now streaming: “Focus On Cine Lenses From the Buyer's POV”.  We again gathered all the major Cine Lens manufacturers in one place at one time to see what is available in the market.  If you're thinking of investing in Cine Lenses, or just need to keep up with the dynamic market, then this program is for you.

Several manufacturers also chose Cine Gear Expo to make major product announcements.  Following are details on a line of Full Frame lenses from Zeiss, new battery technology from Anton/Bauer, as well as several innovations from Panavision.  Other Industry news includes ARRI offering an ARRIRAW option for their AMIRA and the election of leaders to the ASC; we're proud to say that most are also members of DCS, including returning President Kees Van Oostrum, ASC.

The rest of the summer will be busy for DCS with our own events and getting ready to make the trip this year to Europe for IBC. Before we do, however, we'll be organizing an L.A. area event on Indie Film Finance and Distribution, as well as our annual Camera Support and Accessories Expo, (dates and venues TBD).  But first, we've got a great event coming up on August 1st that was rescheduled from May.  We'll be doing a deep dive into Canon's new Full Frame C700 FF at Canon's new home in Burbank, CA.  If you haven't yet had a chance to check out Canon's latest digs, this could be a good opportunity while also checking out their flagship camera.

Industry News

New Innovations From Panavision

PanavisionDXLwAB battAlthough not yet all rentable products, Panavision used the occasion of Cine Gear Expo to preview some interesting new innovations they are working on. Besides a host of improvements to the Millennium DXL line, based on Cinematographer feedback, they introduced several new lines of large format lenses. Primo XThe new Primo X lenses, specially designed for use on drones and gimbals, are fully sealed, weather proof, and counterbalanced to be aerodynamic, and able to easily maintain a proper center of gravity. They come in two primes – 14mm (T3.1) and 24mm (T1.6) – and one 24-70mm zoom (T2.8), and will be available in 2019.

PanaSpeed is a large-format update of the classic Primo look. At T1.4, PanaSpeed will be the fastest large-format lens option available on the market, and will be available in Q3 2018.  Ultra Vista is a series of large-format anamorphic optics using a custom 1.6x squeeze.  Ultra Vistas will cover the full height of the 8K sensor in the DXL and present an ultra-widescreen 2.76:1 aspect ratio along with a classic elliptical bokeh and Panavision horizontal flare. They will be available in 2019, while the H series, a new set of spherical lenses, which tries to capture the feel of vintage glass with special coating for slightly elevated blacks for softer contrast, is available now.

Pana LCNDPerhaps most intriguing was a technology demo of a dynamically adjustable liquid crystal neutral density (LCND) filter. LCND instantly adjusts up to six individual stops with a single click or ramp. This is a significant departure from traditional approaches to front-of-lens filters, which require either carrying a set and manually swapping individual NDs, behind the lens on a filter wheel, or opposing polarized filters, which means you can't add a traditional polarizing effect. The LCND starts at 0.3 and goes through 0.6, 0.9, 1.2, 1.5, to 1.8, and will be available in 2019.

Zeiss introduces Supreme Primes – 13 new High-speed, Full-frame Cinema Lenses

ZeissSupremeGroupLogoIn advance of Cine Gear Expo, Zeiss has introduced a new family of high-speed lenses for Large Format Cinema production.  Known as the ZEISS Supreme Primes, the family consists of 13 lenses with fixed focal lengths between 15 and 200 millimeters. The majority of these lenses provide an extremely fast aperture of T1.5.   ZEISS Supreme Primes are designed to cover cinematic large format camera sensors and are compatible with all of the latest camera models, including the Sony Venice, ARRI Alexa LF, and RED Monstro. They provide a unique visual look due to their gentle sharpness, an aesthetic focus fall-off and rich bokeh.

ZeissSupremeOnCamThe ZEISS Supreme Primes, weighing only an average of 3.5 pounds, are significantly lighter than comparable lenses on the market and are quite compact. The lenses are equipped with the ZEISS eXtended Data metadata technology. This data provides frame by frame information on lens vignetting and distortion in addition to the standard lens metadata provided using Cooke's /i technology protocol. This feature can significantly speed up the entire film production's workflow especially when using visual effects. The lens properties can be removed so that computer generated effects imagery can be accurately applied to the captured imagery, then reapplied for continuity of image character and quality. Previously, all of the data had to be measured manually in order to be corrected in post-production.

The 25mm, 29mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lenses will be released in August 2018 and the 100mm will be ready in December. All six can be purchased together as a set for $108,000US, with the remainder of the 13 lens set coming in 2019, (15mm, 18mm, 21mm, 65mm, 135mm and 150mm focal lengths,) and the 200mm T2.1 arriving in 2020.

Anton/Bauer Introduces New High Capacity and Light Weight Dionic XT Battery Series

AB dionic xt400xAnton/Bauer used the occasion of Cine Gear Expo to unveil their new battery technology, Dionic XT. Their new batteries are available in V-Mount and Gold Mount, 90 watt or 150 watt, with on-board diagnostics and extended life cycles, (estimated over 1,200.). These batteries feature a backlit display, P-Tap, USB power out and should maintain their performance even in cold environments. The XT technology is certified as transportable by air for location travel. They are also cross compatible with multiple brand chargers and their high capacity makes them ideal for applications such as portable lighting.

JMwAB Battx400(FYI, DCS is currently evaluating the Dionic XTs in a variety of applications for an upcoming review. So far, we have been quite impressed.)  See our DCS Cine Gear interview with Andrew Butler of Anton/Bauer for more details on the new batteries as well as a good overview of the current state of battery technology for the motion picture industry including current rules and regulations for air travel with Lithium Ion:  https://vimeo.com/275441764

 

ARRI makes ARRIRAW available for AMIRA

B AMIRA ARRIRAWARRI has announced that it is enabling owners and operators of AMIRA cameras to record in ARRIRAW.  The change will involve the installation of the new Software Update Package SUP 5.3, and the purchase of a license. It will give cinematographers the option to record ARRIRAW 2.8K up to 48fps.  RAW recording formats have the ability to retain more color response and greater exposure latitude as uncompressed and unencrypted sensor data providing flexibility in postproduction and archiving.

Recording ARRIRAW to CFast 2.0 cards in the AMIRA wraps the files in an MXF container. The format is called MXF/ARRIRAW; (internally it is the same ARRIRAW already known from the ALEXA cameras), and is the only format that retains the camera's native color response and exposure latitude.  The AMIRA is ARRI's most affordable camera, and adding RAW recording to its other host of features, like CFast 2.0 workflows and ergonomic design, will make for a camera that is suitable for a great variety of production types.  The upgrade license is currently available and is said to cost upwards of $3,500US.

Tom Fletcher and Gary Adcock's New 2018 Camera Comparison Chart

2018CamCompChartx600Gary Adcock and Tom Fletcher, (current and former Presidents of the Digital Cinema Society Midwest Chapter), have come out with an update to their now famous Camera Comparison Chart. The information has been gathered from numerous conversations with various cinematographers, colorists, colleagues and manufacturers. In fact, the new version is set up as a Google Doc that will live on-line so that it can be updated more quickly as feedback is received and technology advances.  The authors can be reached to report discrepancies by email to: cameracomparisonchart

The authors stress that this is subjective, rather than scientifically collected and tested data with the goal of sharing information with the industry in order to help filmmakers make educated decisions on cameras and formats. The update now includes the ARRI ALEXA LF, RED Monstro, Sony Venus, Canon C700 with Codex, and the Panasonic EVA-1, among many more. Details include estimated latitude, frame rates, resolution, weight, rental cost, as well as perceived pluses and minuses all summarized to two pages.  To view or for printable PDF:

CW Sonderoptic becomes Leitz Cine Wetzlar

LEZ NewReplaceCW SonderOpticCW Sonderoptic, known by some as Leica, has announced a full relaunch under the new brand name Leitz Cine Wetzlar.  Until the late 80’s, all Leica lenses carried the name ‘Ernst Leitz Wetzlar‘ and nearly a decade ago, CW Sonderoptic was organized specifically to develop Cine lenses.  To deal with the expansion and ever-growing demand for quality optics, the cine lens team will move to its own factory at Leitz Park in Germany where Leitz Cine Wetzlar will carry on the legacy started by CW Sonderoptic.
