The Freelensing Cine Universal Tilt & Shift & Swing System: a fantastic technical system for adjusting perspectives and vanishing points. Curious? Check out how it works! πŸ‘‡β–ΆοΈ

Just in! The Freelensing Cine Universal Tilt & Shift & Swing System. This is a system that leaves the lens virtually suspended in front of the camera sensor allowing the operator a fast and intuitive movement. It allows for shifts, parallel and perpendicular to the focal plane, rotation of the optical center, and a combination of both pan and tilt movements. And it gives you control over the focal planes and to choose where to have them in the frame, both to increase the depth of field or to minimize it. Works with our ARRI Alexa Mini LF, Sony Venice 1 & 2 and RED DSMC2. πŸ‘‰ Do you want to use this one for your next project? Send us a message or request a quote -> bit.ly/3WaKRgL
