Here's a little blast from the past, the arrival of our very first RED ONE cameras from RED Digital Cinema, numbers 44 to 48. 10 years ago! They are still available to rent if you want, and two of them have been upgraded all the way, via Mysterium-X, Dragon, Helium and now #Monstro Full Frame! #TBT #RED Camalot Amsterdam Camalot Belgium #20yearsofCamalot https://youtu.be/OU3X0Y2ChPI

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.

New lenses: rehoused Hasselblad from our friends at Whitepoint Optics Oy, covering full frame!
We bought new batteries! The bebob Cube 1200 delivers power to your camera and all sorts of accessories on any location. All standard outputs are integrated: 12, 24, and even 48 Volt. The charger is built-in, just plug in the power cable and you are good to go. Oh and yes: it also charges your phone 😉
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!

Whoa! 🎉We are the very first rental (worldwide!!) te receive the Leica R Cinescope Optics lens set! A combination of rehoused #Summilux and #Elmarit photo lenses that cover the full frame image sensor. Conversion is done by our friends from TLS. A total of 7 primes, going from 19mm up to 135mm. The signature Leica look with full-frame coverage is available at Camalot now. #Leica #Cinescope #TLS #TrueLensServices #Vintage #Lenses #Cinematography #Cinema
The #Sigma High Speed FF Prime Lenses are part of our investment in high quality Full Frame optics. With the upcoming Sony #Venice and #RED #Visa #Vision Camera a full frame (Ø43.3) image circle is needed to cover the larger sensor size. The Sigma Prime Set includes 20, 24, 35, 50 and 85mm lenses, all offering a fast T1.5 stop. For "regular" Super35 we also got the Sigma High Speed Zooms: 16-35mm and 50-100mm, both T2.0. See all specification here: https://www.sigma-global.com/en/cine-lenses/products/ More full frame glass is on it's way, so expect a lot more 😊
On the last day of the IBC in Amsterdam, interested operators can take the QTAKE Certification Program (QCP), an official qualification issued by #QTAKE Smart Assist under the management of Ovide. See below for more details and registration!
Look what came in the mail today 😊 #Leica #Summicron-C #15mm
To create nightlife imagery of nocturnal bats our VariCam LT was used using Panasonic's IR cut glass. This detachable filter allows 4K infrared images to be acquired in extreme darkness. The footage comes from EMS Films (known for De nieuwe wildernis) and will be used for their upcoming nature documentary: De Wilde Stad, coming to cinemas 16 november.
The new Film and Digital Times issue is out now. Take a look to see a special report on the discovery of our Anamorphic #Dyaliscope lenses, and much more interesting news. Limited time free download at the link below, or come and collect a printed issue from our office!
