Sigma adds full frame 14mm and 135mm T2 cine primes. That 14mm is very appealing!

This new Angēnieux Óptimo Style 48-130mm T3 lightweight zoom looks like a great companion to their 16-40mm zoom:

New Canon Zoom: http://www.newsshooter.com/2017/04/20/c ... -is-kas-s/

Not to thrilled about how slow the lens is, but it still is a nice one.

Also, I'm disappointed to learn they're skipping 13 and going to 14 with Resolve. 13 is my lucky number, and they have shown that they are superstitious with the skip, so that saddens me.

I don't think the new lens actually any slower than the long end of Canon's 70-200 f2.8 L lens. That lens noticeably darkens when you zoom to 200mm. The 4.4 on the new cinema zoom is a T stop rather than an f stop so it's a measure of the actual amount light passing through the lens, rather than just the aperture and it stays consistent through the entire zoom range. I'd bet that when compared to a shot taken on the long end of the 70-200 f2.8 L photo lens the light transmission is the same.

Of course, I totally agree that it is slower than a few other s35 cinema zooms. But those don't have IS, are much heavier and cost a whole lot more.

I'm guessing sometime in the near future Rayzr7 will be available through B&H and Adorama as Zylight's other lights can be purchased through them.

Totally a Blackmagic Design design, with Avid sticking their logo on it as well. My guess is Avid worked with Blackmagic on it. My hope is that if they're announcing this that it means that DNx Codecs are coming to the Mini 4.6K and Mini Pro on Monday. Fingers are crossed!

Atomos Sumo Announced – 19” HDR Monitor-Recorder with 12bit 4K60p Raw

The Atomos Sumo has a 19” 1920×1080 10-bit LCD panel with 1200nit brightness. It is driven by the AtomHDR engine, which “maps the Log/PQ/HLG from popular cameras, game consoles or TV makers to perfectly resolve 10+ stops of HDR in real time”. The calibration on the Sumo lets you use the i1DisplayPro from X-Rite to always ensure accurate HDR and Rec709 monitoring.

Image

The Sumo can capture 12-bit 4K30p as CDNG or 10-bit Apple ProRes / Avid DNxHR up to 4K60p / 2K240p Raw using the SDI outputs of the Sony FS5/FS7/FS700, Canon C300MKII/C500 or Panasonic Varicam LT. As with previous models, Atomos are sticking with widely available 2.5″ SSDs that provide an affordable solution for long recording times.

The thing is also a 4 channel SDI live switcher/recorder... all at ~$2500... looks interesting to me!

Australian LED lighting company Outsight introduces Creamsource Micro ahead of NAB: http://www.theasc.com/site/news/outsigh ... clubhouse/

Call me crazy but since this is an Australian LED lighting company, and Blackmagic Design is an Australian camera & post-production software company, do you think the two should team on a project? I think it would be super cool if future Blackmagic cameras could collect metadata wirelessly from the LED lights on what color temperature they're set to and what luminance intensity they're outputting. This kind of metadata can be valuable for VFX, and also probably color. I don't know, just a crazy idea.

Either way, super excited for all the NAB news. I can't wait to see what Blackmagic brings to the event.

I know, but hear me out. I think I'm starting to crack the brilliance of this idea.

So beyond just getting metadata to the camera on the light color and luminance, we could also get other information as well. Using the idea of the gyroscope that Blackmagic originally planned to be in the UM, you have GPS and Gyroscope technology in the lighting equipment as well. Then the camera has it also. So using those things the lighting gear can be triangulated by the camera so that the height and angle of the light can be recorded as metadata as well. Then in Fusion you can recreate that light exactly using the metadata captured. I mean, this sounds to me like a dream come true.

Implementing it however is another mess. I'd give it about 5-years before we actually see this even being possible. But the kernel of the idea is fascinating.

The other thing is that with pre-production software meant to help plan shooting by building virtual sets and setting the lighting up to see how you would do the shot you could then go from the software to set with a precise idea of what you want to achieve. Essentially a lot of crazy ideas here, but when you think about it these are exactly the type of crazy ideas that start revolutions. Look at Star Wars in 1977.

Part of this was thinking about what I read from Rogue One articles. They built virtual sets so they could plan their camera moves and positions. This was achieved in a VR environment. They then were able to build the sets exactly to dimensions that worked with how they planned their camera set-ups. Using the same information to apply it to lighting equipment as well and you're able to get the data that the light is in the right position. Then just like the Digital Sputnik was able to be controlled from an iPhone or iPad for color and luminance, the information could theoretically also be fed to the camera as metadata. All of this leads to the conclusion on where technology can go.

Giving the right innovators this could be possible. It could change the VFX landscape. All for the better, I might add.
