This camera arrived just a few hours ago. Can you guess which camera this is? It's called a pocket camera but it isn’t hyper-portable, but as a cinema camera it’s about as compact as I think it can be with the capability of shooting RAW and ProRes HQ in 4K DCI 60P. ⏩ Check out the product here -> bit.ly/2VyjCME

Woohoo! We just received our new Camalot vests! You can get one of these and also support a good cause! Why and how? We are aiming towards lowering our carbon footprint to (almost) zero. That's why we will be compensating all our energy consumption by planting trees. We will do this together with Carbon Karma (www.carbonkarma.nl) who will plant the trees for us in Spain. Farmers in Agroforestry projects restore the landscape by battling desertification while meanwhile increasing their production. This way all our CO2 emissions will be compensated and we will be indirectly supporting the local economy. Do you want to support us? Come by our office to get one! Available in all sizes! 👍
