Panasonic Af100 – Taking Preorders! by cinequipwhite

That’s right, the AF100 is officially being sold as a preorder as of today!

The test footage is in, and many of the critics agree, this is the direction of digital cinema.

Shipping late in December, the AF100 will be this generation’s DVX100. Most likely it will become a mainstay camera that will work better than expected and last longer, due to the fact that it is a removable lens system with a larger than most chip; giving that cinematic look independent Cinematographers, Directors, and Producers alike aspire to see.

Pre-orders are being taken now. The Af100 retails at 4995.00 (Lenses not included), but give us a call and find out about our pro-order sale. Let’s just say it’s worth while to pre-order. We also have a package price for the AF100, 2 x extra batteries, as well as a shotgun mic and camera bag. Call us at 416-467-7700, or email me at jstainton@cinequipwhite.com for details. Remember, this deal will not be around for long.

Pre-orders require a $500 non refundable deposit, paid in cash, cheque, or credit card.

Kino Trumatch 3200k Diva lamps by cinequipwhite

Kino-Flo-logoKino Flo has had the Diva Lite out in the world for over 5 years now. Can you believe it? Well, you probably though life with your Diva couldn’t get any better, but we’re here to tell you different.

Kino Flo has released their long awaited and much anticipated Truematch 3200K CF lamps for the Diva Lite!

   “Kino Flo® debuts the first hi-lumen, hi-color Kino 32 - Crendering KF32 compact for its award winning True Match® line of professional cool lights. The new tungsten-balanced KF32 takes center stage with the KF29 and KF55 broad spectrum CFL’s and expands the creative palate for cinematic HD and filmmaking.
   Like other lamps in the True Match family, the new KF32’s color (CRI 95) is formulated by Kino Flo to match the spectral sensitivity curves of HD and digital film imaging equipment. With its proprietary chemistry, the new KF32 in a Kino Flo fixture displays a unique quality of soft light. The smooth beam gradient responds especially well to the new generation of HD cameras on the set. The KF32 compact works side by side with traditional tungsten sources without corrective filtration, and draws one tenth the power per lumen compared with hot lights.”

Compatible with the Diva-lite, Para-beam, and Para-Zip lines the lamps will be availible early October for sale, and will be availible in our Diva light Rental Kits. Take a look at the below photometric data for more information.

A Panasonic HVX HD Camera Mounted To UAV by cinequipwhite

   A really great music video for Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band song “Albatross, Albatross, Albatross.”, shot in part on the HVX200, with AerialPan‘s custom Panasonic HVX UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) mount. If you’ve not used an HVX yet, you should give it a try. Its a great, compact HD recorder which uses MiniDV or P2 cards. The image you can get off of it is impressive to say the least; but now combine that with a small remote controlled helicopter!

Lesson to be learned? Never underestimate a Panasonic HVX200. Or a remote controlled helicopter.

Rental Spotlight – The E-Track by Ryan Glover
August 7, 2009, 9:00 am
Filed under: Gear, Rental Gear | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways of adding production value to your project is with some well placed camera movement.

With that in mind, I’d like to draw your attention to the E-Track:

The E-Track consists of a special high-hat trolley that rolls along an 8’ rail. The rail itself can either be mounted onto tripods or mounting feet (or a combination of the 2 for even more versatility) so that the rail can be placed low to the ground or on a table or other flat surface.

Compared to a dolly and track, the E-Track takes fewer people to operate and has a much smaller foot-print, making it ideal for smaller or more sensitive spaces. Set up is very quick and simple, making this unit popular for corporate video and music video shoots.

Come try it out in our show room!

The E-Track kit contains:
– 8’ Rail or 5′ Rail
– Camera Trolley with 100mm Bowl
– 2 Tripods
– 2 pairs of Support Feet

The kit is $100/Day with weekly and student prices available.
Fluid heads are also available for rent.
