Sachtler FSB 10: entry-level fluid head

Sachtler FSB 10 : entry-level fluid head

The new Sachtler FSB 10 builds upon the legacy of the lightweight yet robust FSB Series to offer a premium solution for on-the-go camera operators working in news, documentaries, wildlife, and more. The new tripod will debut at IBC 2016.

The short video with sports photographer and cinematographer Tom Day gives you an idea of how well the new tripod works in real world conditions. Tom Day, one of the most renowned filmmakers in the skiing world, famously snapped a picture of his FSB 8 system frozen while on location in the Alps yet still fully operational. Day, the principle cinematographer for Warren Miller Entertainment since 2000 and an avid user of the Sachtler brand, was one of the first to experience the FSB 10 and tested it in extreme, on-location environments.

“If the FSB system can perform in these extreme locations, then it won’t let you down on your day to day shoot,” explained Day. “The 100 mm version of the FSB 10 allows you to level the tripod so much quicker than a 75 mm. This allows you to set-up fast, shoot on the fly or uneven ground, and ultimately get your shot. He added, “it’s surprisingly lightweight, which is great for someone like me who is always on-location and needs to be mobile. With a bigger head and stick socket, the FSB 10’s legs can be planted even wider. The stability allows me avoid any unnecessary movement and get great shots. Ultimately, it comes down to smooth, reliable movement and Sachtler makes the best fluid heads in the industry.”

Sachtler FSB 10 : entry-level fluid headSachtler’s FSB line of fluid heads has a reputation for being resilient and long-lasting. Director of Photography Alessandro Beltrame used his FSB 6 system for The Antarctica Project in the South Pole, where temperatures often dipped below -40 degrees Celsius. “Transport over icy, snowy, and rocky terrain is very difficult; that’s why the equipment has to be extremely robust yet very lightweight at the same time. The less weight, the better,” said Beltrame when explaining the challenges of filming at the South Pole. “On top of that, the quality of pan and tilt movements is a basic requirement. It doesn’t matter how well you prepare; you never know how much leeway you’ll actually have in those extreme conditions. That’s exactly why you need the best possible camera support.”

The FSB 10 expands on this tradition. It is everything camera operators have come to expect from the Sachtler brand including rugged durability, a camera support that will last over a decade and buttery smooth panning and tilting movements for consistently high-quality content. With a higher payload than the 75 mm FSB 8, the FSB 10 can handle up to 12 kg (26.5 lbs) and allows users to employ a wider range of system configurations. The head comes in two versions with different camera platforms including the FSB 10 with convenient sideload mechanism with long sliding range for front/back adjustment of the camera or FSB 10 T with Touch & Go plate for very fast camera attachment.

Debuting this year at IBC, booth 12.E65, the FSB 10 boasts five positions + 0 for pan and tilt drag, giving operators better flexibility and speed no matter their project or location. For even more convenience, it also offers ten steps of counterbalance, compared to other products in the same market that only provide four.

“The FSB 10 is the perfect accessory for today’s modern camera operator on the go. It is ergonomically designed with our customers in mind and perfectly supports today’s digital cinema-style cameras, including the Sony FS7 and Canon C300. We are very proud to offer solid German engineering at a very affordable price,” commented Tobias Keuthen, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Sachtler.

YI Erida: new 4K drone taking off soon

YI Erida: new 4K drone taking off soon

The YI Erida drone will be unveiled at InterDrone, the International Drone Conference and Exhibition, in Las Vegas, September 7-9, 2016. Pricing, availability and final drone and application features will be announced later this year.

Another company enters the drone competition. YI Technology, international provider of advanced, intelligent imaging technologies, products, services and platforms, announced the forthcoming release of YI Erida, the world’s first mainstream, full carbon smart professional-grade drone which is, according to the company, exceptionally fast and agile, reaching speeds of 75 miles per hour in initial tests, and features proven imaging and vision technology in an aerodynamic, three-rotor design.

“With the launch of YI Erida we are solving three of the biggest barriers to widespread drone adoption: overly complex products, lack of consumer accessibility and short flight time,” said Sean Da, Co-Founder & CEO of YI Technology. “Like all YI products, YI Erida features the most advanced technology in a simple and intuitive operating system at a competitive price point. Our drone is the culmination of decades of expertise and experience in imaging and aeronautics with a focus on producing a drone that addresses the shortcomings of current market leaders, to exceed the industry standard.”

YI Erida: new 4K drone taking off soon

Because of its highly durable and lightweight, 100 percent carbon fiber frame and its unique three-rotor design, YI Erida is exceptionally fast and agile, reaching speeds of up to 75 miles per hour and flying for up to 40 minutes in initial tests. The YI Erida features patented, folding rotors offering a compact design that makes it versatile, portable and easy to carry, whether in the backyard or around the world.

YI Erida features intelligent, modern software and sensors, to make maneuvering smarter, simpler and safer. The corresponding YI Erida mobile app draws on YI’s proven track record in simple, user-friendly mobile solutions, making a remote obsolete. From the app on any mobile device, users can set the flight mode, choose the height and shooting angle, control takeoff and landing, and check battery status, distance and flight time. For maximum safety, YI Erida boasts an advanced sensor and radar system with a built-in laser scanner to examine its surroundings, and automatically increase flying height if the ground begins to elevate.

YI Erida: new 4K drone taking off soon

YI Erida features the YI 4K Action Camera, which is “the only action camera on the market today that combines 4K video recording at 30 fps, with up to 120 minutes of recording time and an integrated, high-resolution touchscreen. It also offers manual IQ parameters for advanced photographers including shutter, exposure value compensation, level sensitivity, metering mode and white balance. For the smoothest shooting possible, YI Erida offers an advanced gimbal system, which is essential for producing professional-quality footage. YI Erida’s gimbal works seamlessly with the drone, camera and mobile app.

To bring the YI Erida to market, YI is working with Atlas, a team of aerospace engineers and software developers who first caught the attention of market leaders through an Indiegogo campaign in 2015. The two companies bring together civilian- and military-grade aeronautics materials and research with world-class imaging technology in the newest, industry-leading drone.

New Sony 50mm Macro for E-mount

New Sony 50mm macro for E-mount

Although the usual Macro lenses focal length many look at is around the 100mm mark, there are times when a smaller, portable, 50mm does wonders for a photographer’s or videographer’s that has to carry all gear around. The 71mm long with a weight of 236 g does exactly that.

Ideal for everyday photography, this versatile 50mm macro lens features a F2.8 maximum aperture that offers outstanding image quality and bokeh, while its 1:1 macro capability allows the photographer to get sharp close-up shots of their subject. Additionally, its comprehensive range of controls including focus-mode switch, focus-range limiter and the focus-hold button ensures a quality macro shooting experience for a wide range of users.

The information from Sony fits within my own experience, although with a different lens and a different sensor size. Although I own two macro lenses on the 100mm range, I’ve a 60mm f/2.8 EF-S macro lens from Canon, to use with APS-C bodies, because sometimes I like the small dimensions and lightweight it offers when compared to the regular 100mm macro. I use the 60mm macro both for photography and video.

New Sony 50mm macro for E-mount

Sony’s FE 50mm F2.8 Macro is also usable with their APS-C bodies, meaning it offers a field of view similar to a 70mm, making the lens also ideal for portrait and scenery, besides macro shots. With a 0.16m minimum focusing distance, the lens also offers, adds Sony, “a wider frame for capturing more background, compared to longer focal-length macro lenses”. It’s an interesting take on one aspect that many times is presented as a problem: the change in terms of depth of field.

Weighing just 236g, the lens is extremely lightweight and portable, making it easy to carry around and is built to be used in different weather conditions, although not guaranteed to be 100% dust and moisture resistant.

The new FE 50mm F2.8 Macro lens features ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass to effectively compensate for axial chromatic aberration at close focus, allowing it to create consistently sharp and high quality images. The circular aperture design produces beautiful bokeh effects and the optical and mechanical construction of the lens has less flare and ghosting even without a lens hood.

The FE 50mm F2.8 Macro (reference SEL50M28) will be available in October priced at approximately $500.

Recently released, NewBlue’s ColorFast 2 is an integrated plugin that streamlines both color correction and color grading in one simple workflow. With a variety of features geared for speed and efficiency, you can quickly fix exposure problems and create the look you want across your entire production.

The search for a color correction and grading solution never ends, and new products always attract the attention of people in the industry. While there is no “one size fits all” in this area, as there isn’t also in the other creative areas, something that should probably be accepted as a blessing, there is always some excitement when a new product, like ColorFast 2, arrives.

ColorFast 2, part of NewBlueFX line, is all about getting the most out of your footage.

Band Pro promises surprises at IBC 2016

Band Pro promises surprises at IBC 2016

New 4K demo footage shot exclusively with Raptor primes will be screened at the booth occupied by Band Pro Munich GMBH (German subsidiary of Band Pro Film & Digital, Inc.). to showcase the signature look and versatility of this macro-to-infinity lens series.

IB/E Optics believes that the future is in large format sensors, of which early examples include RED Weapon 6K and 8K, Sony A7 or ARRI’s new ALEXA65. Larger sensors deliver the film-look and an interesting bokeh due to their very shallow depth of field. These new cameras require lenses that can cover the larger sensor sizes. That’s where the Raptor lens family enters, offering a new macro family consisting of 3 focal lengths 100 mm, 150 mm and 180 mm initially, available this Summer and present at IBC.

The serial production Raptor prime lenses will be complemented with a complete array of IB/E Expanders, Extenders, and lens converters, allowing cinematographers to utilize their existing glass over the widest possible range of cameras and sensor sizes. The Raptor lenses are not the only product on show, though. As always, Band Pro will feature the latest focal lengths from award winning Leica Summilux-C and Leica Summicron-C lenses available from CW Sonderoptic.

Band Pro has announced they will feature major lens innovations at this year’s IBC show and,additionally, a “major announcement” should be expected at this year’s show. Band Pro President and CEO, Amnon Band remarked: “We’re in a time of transition, with cameras and camera sensors changing fast. You want to capture in 6K, 8K, more K? Sure, no problem. What you really need now is high quality glass that’s future-proof and ready to work with the cameras that are coming. Visit us at IBC this year, and you’ll see some very interesting steps in that direction.”

Band Pro is exclusive distributor and reseller for most IB/E OPTICS cine products.

SLR Magic Introduces Image Enhancer Pro Filter

SLR Magic introduces the Image Enhancer Pro (IE Pro). The filter is to help increase clarity of image and fix color shifting from light contamination beyond the visible spectrum. What makes the IE Pro different from other filters is the IE Pro optimizes the light spectrum from 200nm to 1,200nm to ensure the image captured on your camera look as natural to the human eye as possible.


As many of you may already know, many digital cameras can be susceptible to infrared light contamination. This contamination leads to a color cast usually found in the blacks, especially in dark color fabrics, and can turn this neutral color into a reddish or burgundy color. Trust me when I say this IR pollution is damn near impossible to color grade out.

Usually, IR filters are used to address color shift and infrared contamination and hot mirror filters rates at 680nm, 700nm, or 750nm usually help produced blacker blacks but can create strange skin tone. Sometimes an IR filter can be too strong and can produce a green of red shift. If handing off footage this can type of color cast can be a little off-putting for the client.

What the Image Enhancer Pro (IE Pro) is designed to do it give you the cleanest image possible. No color casts caused by the filter and no IR light pollution. Plus, SLR Magic has put 50 layers of multi-coating into the IE Pro to reduce reflections, flare, attenuate UV and Infrared light to help you capture the most accurate color with cleaner blacks and true skin tones. The Image Enhancer Pro will be available October 2016.

The big question for SLR Magic and the Image Enhancer Pro will be how well this new filter will stack up against Formatt Filter’s Firecrest filters and other leading filter manufacturers’ IR filtration? Two things SLR Magic needs for the Image Enhancer Pro to be a hit: 1. it needs to provide clean images like Firecrest filters. 2. It needs to be cheaper. Let’s hope they succeed on both accounts. The Image Enhancer Pro will be available October 2016.


SmallHD: new firmware for Production Monitors

SmallHD: new firmware for Production Monitors

Bugs fixed, improvements to existing features and some new features are included in the firmware version 1.0 from SmallHD for their Production Monitors. Check the videos to find out more and continue to explore the firmware on SmallHD’s website.
