Welcome to the world of infrared! Infrared filters are now available at Camalot. They are perfect for adding to a full spectrum conversion or on top of another infrared conversion to get a different effect. Every filter has its advantages but all of them are perfect for creating attention grabbing nature/landscapes. We have 4 different IR filters (590nm, 665nm, 720nm and 850nm) that are available in 1 set. In the upcoming weeks we will be sharing some useful tips about these 4 different filters. ▶️ Watch this 19 minute clip if you're interested to see the different effects. Any questions?

Former Pink Floyd bass guitar player Roger Waters performed last weekend in the Ziggo Dome. What an incredible show and we were excited to be part of it! For all his concerts in the Ziggo Dome we distributed a set of 20 cameras, of which 13 were RED Helium's and 7 of them RED Monstro's (with the appropriate lenses). This exclusive high-end production was shot in 8K with Vista Vision lenses. The very comprehensive grip package consisted of a movie bird, multiple dollies and flying equipment. 📸 by Johan van Elk! Also many thanks to United and Angenieux Lenses!

We are excited to announce that we are the first European rental house with the ZEISS Supreme Prime Lenses. They are available in a set of 5 and are designed for large-format sensor coverage, making them the ideal choice for current and future camera systems such as the ARRI Alexa LF, the Sony Venice and de RED Monstro. ⏩ Want to find out more about the ZEISS lenses?

Our friends from True Lens Services are working hard on the Anamorphic Dyaliscope lenses we found in an old chateau in France! They have been working on pairing the anamorphic fronts up with the Kinoptik base lens, and have then been cleaned and mechanics including the focus freed up. All base lenses checked so far have a very nice image, the conversion will be to fit PL mount. If you haven't read the article in the FD Times last summer you can still read it here, page 42 and 43:

In de ochtend van 8 december (09:00-12:00) zal er een hands-on zijn met Sony's nieuwe paradepaartje: de VENICE. Dé nieuwe Full Frame CineAlta camera die op 10 januari 2018 officieel in Nederland gelanceerd zal worden. Wees op 8 december welkom om als eerste in Nederland de VENICE te bewonderen. De camera staat opgesteld op de vloer (dus testen mag!) en een vertegenwoordiger van Sony zal al je vragen beantwoorden. In de nieuwe 4K bioscoop is de eerste showreel te zien die geschoten is met de VENICE. Bijzonder aan de camera is haar grote (36x24mm) Full Frame sensor, een 8 traps intern ND filter systeem, ondersteuning voor FF én Super35 lenzen, zowel anamorphic als sferisch, een verwisselbaar sensor blok en de optie voor RAW, ProRes of XAVC. Kom dus vooral even langs en zie als eerste hoe de camera ontworpen is. We zien jullie graag bij Camalot!
