Welcome to new generation of data handling. We introduce the Camalot SSD Data Wrangler, the solution for a high demand data situation on set. It allows you to copy your data easily and quickly wherever you are. It comes in a box that is easy to transport. No spinnings disks are required because only SSD's are used.

''Weird but genius'' The Laowa 24mm f/14 Macro Probe Lens is specifically designed to produce extreme macro images on full frame cameras. This lens has a super narrow size and is extremely light (only 474 grams). Also because of the fact that it has a built-in LED and is waterproof opens a world of possibilities for what this lens is able to capture — things that other macro lenses can’t. ▶️ Check out the video from Laowa or visit our website for more information ->

Two new Arricams just arrived: the Arricam LT and the Arricam ST! Can you pinpoint the differences? The Arricam ST is intended as a full-capability camera, including two camera magazine mounting configurations, whereas the Arricam LT is optimized for smaller, lightweight usage in handheld and Steadicam application, with only the option to mount the magazine in the rear position. ⏩ Check out these cameras here ->

Let us introduce to you a new member of the Ambient family: the Ambient ACN-LS Lockit Slate! New is the double brightness at less than half of the power consumption (compared to its predecessor) and the slate includes ACN (Ambient Clockit Network) support, metadata, clap time transfer, and logging. This works perfect together with the Ambient Lockit ACL-204, ACN-ML and nano Lockit. ⏩ Check out the product here ->

Mindbending! The Elite Reverse Perspective. In Reverse Perspective the expected visual rules are inverted, so close objects are small and far objects are big. This is not only true for whole objects, but their structure as well. So the near points of an object are closer together, relative to its far points. The effect is achieved entirely in-camera, perspective is truly reversed. ▶️ Watch (and enjoy) the video we shot last year!

Because we get many requests for the infrared filter we would like to summarise how each filter distinguishes itself: ☑️ The Standard IR filter (720nm) allows for good colour for false colour and good contrast for black and white. ☑️ The Ultra Colour filter (590nm) lets more visible light in. This produces extreme vibrant colours. ☑️ The Extra Colour filter (665nm) has an effect between the 720nm and the 590nm, producing colours such as pale yellow leafs and brighter blue skies. ☑️ The Deep Black & White filter (850nm), the filter for a dedicated black and white IR. It will produce bright whites and pronounced darks. ▶️ Watch the video of Freek Zonderland for a demonstration!
