The date and time have been set for this summer’s new equipment workshop: Friday, August 5th at 6:00pm Registration is free for full members. Basic and subscriber members will have to pay $5 at the door. Participants should expect about 45 minutes of instruction, followed by a chance to try the equipment among themselves.
As a reminder, the equipment being workshopped will be:
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.
