The Filmpool’s 2017 New Equipment Workshop
5:30 pm – June 15th, 2017
@ The Filmpool Office on Scarth St.
Free for Full & Basic members
The Filmpool’s new marquee camera, the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro, will be showcased. As well, there will be another opportunity to see our new acquisitions from last year, the DJI Ronin, the Kessler Cineslider, the Rotolite NEO Kit, and the Zoom F8 Field Recorder. Participants should expect about 45 to 60 minutes of instruction, followed by a chance to try the equipment amongst themselves.
Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro
The Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro is a 4.6k “digital film” camera with a Super35 sensor and an EF lens mount. With built-in XLR ports, ND filters, and high frame rate shooting (up to 120 at 2k) this camera is made to be your go-to solution no matter the shoot. It can shoot up to 4:1 compressed RAW and uses the same Zeiss cp.2 lenses you’ve grown to love on our Blackmagic Production Camera.
The Ronin is a 3-axis gimbal stabilization system. It uses 3 brushless motors moving on three axes and a 32-bit processor to to calculate movements within milliseconds, mitigating almost all camera movement to create silky smooth, stable and sweeping camera movements.
The Kessler CineSlider is a portable, durable slider made for capturing smooth, subtle camera motion. With the Parallax attachment you can be sure focus on a centered subject, or broad sweeping pans will be smooth throughout. And with the vertical mount, the slider can be used for pedestal moves as well.
Rotolite NEO LED Light Kit
The Rotolite NEO LED is a portable, versatile light with adjustable colour temperature and a wide range of in light effects features. The light can act as a key or fill, and has the brightness equivalent of a 700 watt tungsten light.
Zoom F8 Field Recorder
The Zoom F8 is an attempt to bring professional audio recording devices to filmmakers and creators everywhere. The F8 is an 8-input/10-track recorder, and features an extremely low noise floor & high gain. It can record at 24-bit/192 kHz resolution, and features state of the art timecode.
