  1. Anywhere you look online, it is stated that Canon K35 lenses were used for Aliens, but I recently had a back and forth with someone in the "Anamorphic Shooters" facebook group that piqued my curiosity. I haven't seen any mention of this in the forums, so I'm interested in what info anyone might have aside from this seemingly sensible hearsay: (names removed) "Aliens was shot on Panavision lenses, most likely rehoused Zeiss HS optics. The K35s story is an internet myth, one that is repeated as gospel by most rehousing and hire companies. The K35s were used simply on the b-camera for cutaways." Me - "Really? I can’t find any source that says that, how do you know?" "A guy I know worked with Adrian Biddle on a commercial project before his death. K35s were not highly regarded lenses until 10 years ago... no one wanted them and there is no way 20th Century Fox would ever let an entire blockbuster with a budget of 18 million be shot on them. Adrian Biddle replaced veteran Dick Bush who was fired by James Cameron. Bush was a very old school DP and there's no way on earth he'd not used Panavison lenses. Aliens was Biddles first movie as a DP and he'd never have been able to send back a full Panavision lens set and replace them with K35s. They had a short schedule and since no one wanted the K35s Biddles was able to get them cheap and have them used on the B-camera for additional coverage. The internet and especially rental houses listings are full of half truths... and myths ... the reality is... a huge number of movies simply used Panavision glass. Panavision were rehousing lenses since the 1950s and still are... and in that time have used Bausch & Lomb, Nikon, Leica and especially Zeiss optics as the basis for their lenses. If you believe the internet: Hitchcocks, "The Birds" was shot on SuperBaltars... even though the movie came out in 1962 and the lenses were released in 1966/67. The Godfather was shot on SuperBaltars... even though a good portion of the lens was shot on Gordon Willis' custom made Panavision 40mm. American Hustle was shot on K35s... well half true, the original casings were so useless they were quickly replaced by Zeiss Superspeeds. Kubrick used K35 on Barry Lyndon... not true... he used an early Canon FD specially rehoused. Aliens being shot on the K35s is yet another one of those myths. In their original unrehoused form they were a pain and in fact 10 years ago a case of lenses would cost you about 5k. ...the K35s are very popular now... but never were at the time... even though they did win an Oscar. All but the 18 and 35mm are basically rehoused FDs (with some improvements to the coatings) which is why they cover a LF sensor. The truth about lens choices pre digital... often it was a lot less sexy and complicated than we think... it was what was there, what worked and what gave the sharpest image on 35mm film. Plus the most reliable mechanics... and that was part of the K35s downfall... and their uneven focus throws. you might find this piece worth a read. Gregory Irwin who worked on American Hustle also AC'd on Joker, Interstellar... his credits list is huge."
  2. Hello, I'm intrigued by the Panavision Elaine 16mm camera which seemed like a good camera that never seems to get used anymore and is largely forgotten. It was introduced in 1987 but the only thing I know was shot with it was some of 'Malcolm In The Middle' back in the 90s. I'm assuming it was used primarily for TV. Has anyone here had any experience with it or used one recently? What are your thoughts on it, what was it like to use? Kind regards - Aren
  3. Let’s the the usual talk out of the way. Yes I know PV is PV, but I have see. These EVFs in the wild since after Panavision threw them out. Heck I have even seen two PV genesis is private possession. With that known. I am looking for the Panavision EVF for the F35. I have been looking at aftermarket ones as well, but seems they aren’t worth the effort. //C
  4. Here's the glorious teaser for Matt Reeves' The Batman that dropped on Dc FanDome. Matt himself uploaded a 4K version on his Vimeo account: They only shot 25% of the film so far, so pretty astounding they have that much footage, and so coherently edited, to show yet. Production resuming in September at Leavesden (they cancelled the other planned shooting on location in the UK, so some have wondered whether there'd be a noticeable change visually from shooting on location to on set, or studio lots, I doubt it with Fraser and Reeves). Fraser is shooting this on the Alexa LF paired with Ultra Vista and H Series anamorphic glass. The first Batman film shot digitally, which I was worried about but this, being Fraser and Reeves, looks so low key and ravishing, there's such a sense of mood and atmosphere, I really dig the texture too, I suspect they shot a lot of this on 1280 or 1600 ISO. Matt Reeves said in his DC FanDome panel that his inspirations for this go from Chinatown to Batman Ego (in terms of comics) to Taxi Driver, those really gritty, in the streets 70s films. So spectacular.
  5. Panavision and its family of companies return to the EnergaCamerimage International Film Festival from November 9-16 in Torun, Poland, with an immersive, end-to-end experience for attendees. Torun’s newly renovated Karczma Damroki facility, across the street from the Jordanki Festival Center, will be transformed into an interactive festival space called PanaVillage and will showcase the integrated technologies, products, and services from Panavision, Panalux, Light Iron, LEE Filters, and Direct Digital. “We are giving filmmakers the opportunity to experience our broad array of tools in a simulated production environment,” says Kim Snyder, Panavision president and CEO. “Our global team and product experts look forward to engaging with attendees in a hands-on experience with our end-to-end offerings.” At the PanaVillage, guests will interact with Panavision’s complete ecosystem of cameras and lenses, lighting, filters, gels, grip, and remote systems. Visitors will be able to fully control and monitor an 8K Millennium DXL2 large-format camera mounted on a SuperTechno 30 crane, using an innovative new wireless fiber technology with a range of more than a kilometer (0.6 miles). Mounted in front of a Primo 70 lens, Panavision’s LCND filter offers six stops of variable density. Guests can remotely adjust the camera, iris, and LCND filter while monitoring 4K video inside the PanaVillage on a LINK HDR Cart. Panavision and Light Iron’s LINK HDR system, which debuted at Cine Gear Expo Los Angeles earlier this year, is now being utilized on feature and episodic projects. PanaVillage guests will experience how the Panavision LINK HDR cart and Light Iron LINK HDR dailies and finishing services put the power of creating HDR images into the hands of all creatives – including cinematographers, editors, and colorists – throughout the entire imaging chain. While inside the PanaVillage, attendees will have the opportunity to experiment and craft unique looks using the DXL2 camera and the more compact DXL-M system. A selection of large format lenses, including the T1.4 Panaspeeds, will be available to frame the scene. Guests can illuminate the scene and control the lighting with a variety of Panalux and third-party options. LEE Filters’ full collection of lighting gels, including the expanded range of Zircon LED gels, will be available to further modify the scene. PanaVillage visitors will also encounter LEE Filters’ ProGlass CINE IRND range of neutral-density filters and the LEE100, a lightweight, high-performing 100mm photographic filter mount system. Experts from Direct Digital will be on hand to discuss stills and motion rental services. Guests looking to purchase consumables and merchandise can find the Panastore in the main Jordanki Festival Center. Additional micro-workshops hosted by the Panavision group will be programmed throughout the week and real-time details will be shared on Panavision’s social media accounts. This year, Panavision is proud to sponsor a cinematic retrospective from EnergaCamerimage Lifetime Achievement Award recipient John Bailey, ASC. On November 12 at 15:00h at CinemaCity, Bailey will present insights from his impressive career, spanning more than 40 years with credits including Ordinary People, The Big Chill, In the Line of Fire, American Gigolo, A Walk in the Woods, Mishima, and The Accidental Tourist. Panavision’s long-standing relationship with Bailey resulted in the 2004 creation of the AWZ2, or the “Bailey Zoom,” the first modern zoom to use anamorphic elements in front of the lens.

  6. Panavision, the world-class provider of end-to-end solutions, will return to Cine Gear Expo (May 31-June 1) at The Studios at Paramount to showcase the latest innovations in the company’s ever-expanding production and post production ecosystem. Panavision, Light Iron and LEE Filters will display an array of integrated technologies and systems at booth S408 on Stage 3 – ranging from lenses, cameras and filters, to state-of-the-art production and post production workflows – that illustrate Panavision’s commitment to providing the most versatile and powerful storytelling tools. “At Panavision, our vision is to support filmmakers with solutions that expand creativity and efficiency,” says Kim Snyder, president and CEO of Panavision. “We’re always focused on adapting the tremendous power of technology to the needs of the visual artist. We’re proud and excited to demonstrate our latest advancements.” Among the breakthroughs on display are Panavision and Light Iron’s new LINK HDR system. Creatives are producing for HDR-capable distribution platforms more than ever before as consumers seek premium viewing experiences. LINK HDR was developed to address the challenge of viewing HDR (high dynamic range) images throughout the production and post production process. Offering HDR and SDR viewing options in tandem, LINK HDR provides cinematographers, directors, editors and creative talent throughout the imaging chain the ability to view their image at the same quality delivered to consumers. The LINK HDR system consists of: Panavision LINK HDR On-Set Cart – a modular cart outfitted with various monitoring configurations that offers creatives the ability to view HDR and SDR live from the camera. Light Iron LINK HDR Dailies – an NLE process that creates HDR and SDR deliverables simultaneously, which allows editors to cut, toggle between, and export in either format. Light Iron LINK HDR Finish – a combination of creative talent, technical expertise, and leading technologies that link the creative decisions made on-set to the HDR mastering process for delivery to various HDR platforms. “As adoption rates of the HDR format rapidly grow, it is more critical than ever for creatives to view a consistent image from on-set through the finishing suite,” notes Light Iron Supervising Colorist Ian Vertovec. “We want filmmakers to have all the tools they need for this new deliverable. The components of LINK HDR were designed with them in mind.” Panavision’s Millennium DXL2 and DXL-M camera systems will also be showcased at the Panavision booth, demonstrating the value of this expanding ecosystem. With new industry developments, the DXL2’s 6G 4K SDI outputs, which allow direct connection to a Teradek Bolt 4K with a single SDI cable, can now be fully utilized. The latest enhancements to the DXL2 also include: an integrated C-Motion F.I.Z. module allowing the use of Arri WCU4 wireless lens control handsets with full lens mapping support; a proxy workflow that allows easy creation of traditional dailies while archiving 8K files for DI and VFX; a wireless audio module adding expanded audio capabilities; and DXL Control for iPhone and Android. The DXL-M, which marries the modularity and connectivity of the DXL with the smaller size and weight of RED’s DSMC2 cameras, is now available to filmmakers. In addition to the Primo HDR viewfinder, DXL menu system and LiColor2, the DXL-M now offers 2x2 SDI outputs delivering two independent monitoring paths across 4x HD-SDI outputs. Along with added accessories, battery elevator and control upgrades, these advancements add to the efficiency and flexibility of the kit. The result is a fully-equipped camera that is conveniently adaptable to any shooting scenario, including drone, remote head shots and situations where space is at a premium. Panavision’s LCND, a variable liquid crystal neutral density filtration system, will be presented with expanded new features. LCND is now wirelessly controllable via the Preston handset and offers functionality that translates to creativity on the set. The ability to maintain a given stop under changing lighting conditions by riding the ND filter instead of the iris adds powerful image control options at the moment of photography. LCND also has manual controls and a 24-hour internal battery built into the single filter tray. Panavision’s longstanding emphasis on delivering superior lens quality and unmatched selection continues to be a priority as it serves the artistic needs of today’s creative community. At Cine Gear, filmmakers can examine the company’s proprietary portfolio of optics, including the Primo-X (weatherproof and compact drone and gimbal solution), Panaspeed (large format, high-speed T1.4 with the classic Primo look), H-Series (vintage portrait look for spherical large format), and UltraVista (1.65x large-format anamorphic) lines, as well as other lenses in Panavision’s large-format offerings. In addition to exhibiting, Panavision, in partnership with RED Digital Cinema, will present a panel featuring Oscar®-nominated cinematographer John Schwartzman, ASC. Panavision’s SVP of Optics Dan Sasaki will join Schwartzman as he discusses his approach to visual storytelling and explores the fusion between visual concepts and tools. Schwartzman will reveal his decision-making process from pre-production to post on such projects as The Highwaymen and the upcoming Last Christmas, on June 1 at 11:45 a.m. in the Sherry Lansing Theater. LEE Filters will highlight the LEE100, a newly updated 100mm filter mount system that boasts lighter weight and improved performance. The LEE100 Filter System incorporates a rotation lock as well as a newly designed clip-on polarizer filter for ease of use. Additionally, LEE’s full collection of lighting gels, including the expanded range of Zircon gels specifically designed for fine-tuning LED fixtures, will be touted, as well as the ProGlass CINE IRND range of neutral-density filters, precisely built to meet the exacting needs of cinematographers. “The advancements on display at Cine Gear exemplify our commitment to providing end-to-end solutions that put creative flexibility in the hands of filmmakers,” says Snyder. “Each tool is conceived as an element of a unified ecosystem designed to deliver customizable solutions to meet any need or budget. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to present the results to our friends and colleagues in the filmmaking community, and we can’t wait to see how they’re used in the visual storytelling of tomorrow.”
  7. Light Iron, a Panavision company specializing in post production services, is again playing an important collaborative role with notable episodic series this season. Customized workflow offerings from Light Iron for BETTER THINGS, THE GOOD FIGHT, THE OA, RAMY, SHRILL, THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL, and WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, included dailies, digital intermediate, archive, and data services, among other creative and technical contributions. From San Francisco and Los Angeles to New York and Toronto, Light Iron serviced the productions from a range of locations with color and front-end teams involved from pre-production for a smooth and efficient experience. “We are honored to support these outstanding projects,” says Peter Cioni, Light Iron’s General Manager. “Our unique understanding of the demands of episodic schedules coupled with our technical skills in file-based workflows fuels our ability to fulfill the creative vision on time and on budget. Light Iron at its core is focused on innovation and, as part of the Panavision family, we offer our expertise from pre-production through finishing, creating efficiencies throughout the imaging chain.” A closer look at the projects demonstrates the possibilities for end-to-end solutions from Light Iron and Panavision: • BETTER THINGS, season 3 (FX) – Already renewed for a fourth season, BETTER THINGS follows the trials and tribulations of Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single mother and working actor with no filter, raising her three daughters in Los Angeles. The season was shot by Paul Koestner who collaborated with Light Iron’s dailies colorist Gregory Pastore and DI colorist Corinne Bogdanowicz. Panavision Hollywood provided the camera and lens package. • THE GOOD FIGHT, season 3 (CBS All Access) – Entertainment Weekly hails the third installment of THE GOOD FIGHT as “the best show on TV.” Shot by Fred Murphy, ASC, this season was supported by Light Iron with dailies by Andrew Hodgdon and final color from Steven Bodner. The production is also serviced by Panavision New York. • THE OA, season 2 (Netflix) – The first season of THE OA quickly developed a cult fan base. For the highly anticipated second installment, Light Iron worked closely with series DPs Steven Meizler and Magnus Nordenhof Jønck to ensure the work done by dailies colorists Andrew Hodgdon and George Thomas was reflected in the final color grade with Ian Vertovec. Services included location support in San Francisco and Los Angeles. • RAMY, season 1 (Hulu) – Winner of the 2019 SXSW Audience Award, RAMY stars actor-director-comedian Ramy Youssef as the son of Egyptian immigrants in New Jersey. Light Iron worked closely with cinematographers Adrian Peng Correia and Ashley Connor to establish the look in dailies, which transferred seamlessly into the DI where the final color grade was performed by Steve Bodner. Cameras and optics were supplied by Panavision New York. • SHRILL, season 1 (Hulu) – From executive producers Lorne Michaels and Elizabeth Banks and showrunner Ali Rushfield, SHRILL stars Aidy Bryant (from SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) as Annie, an overweight young woman who wants to change her life — but not her body. Based on the 2016 memoir by Lindy West, Vox calls the series “a quietly tender portrayal of learning how to love yourself.” Light Iron colorist Nick Lareau provided the final color grade in collaboration with cinematographer Joe Meade. • THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL, season 2 (Amazon) – Light Iron worked alongside cinematographers M. David Mullen, ASC and Eric Moynier, returning for the second season of this award-winning series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino. Light Iron’s Aaron Burns handled dailies color and Steve Bodner collaborated with the two DPs during finishing. For camera and lens options, Panavision New York was the go-to resource. • WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, season 1 (FX) – Based on the feature film of the same name, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is a documentary-style look into the lives of four vampires who have “existed” together for hundreds of years on Staten Island. The film’s cinematographer D.J. Stipsen returned for the series, which has earned a 96% rating from Tomatometer critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Christian Sprenger lensed the pilot. Light Iron dailies colorists Gregory Pastore and Jacob Doforno supported early look development in Toronto via the local Panavision facility, which carried over into finishing in the DI by Ian Vertovec.

  8. Panavision, the world-class provider of end-to-end solutions that power the creative vision of filmmakers, will return to BSC Expo (Feb. 1-2) with a demonstration of the company’s comprehensive and expanding ecosystem for feature film, television and commercial productions. Along with Panalux and LEE Filters, the array of integrated technologies – ranging from lenses, camera systems, and accessories, to filters and lights – illustrates the extent to which Panavision is committed to giving filmmakers the most versatile and creative storytelling tools possible. “Panavision is excited to exhibit our latest innovations at BSC Expo and, in particular, to share how our products and services are designed to work together to help creatives tell their stories,” says Kim Snyder, president and CEO of Panavision. “We are delighted to demonstrate the full extent of this growing ecosystem to filmmakers at BSC Expo.” BSC Expo attendees were among the first in the world to get up close and personal with the DXL2 in 2018, and this year visitors can look forward to discovering a host of new options for the large format camera system. New to the DXL2 this year is an integrated C-Motion F.I.Z. module to allow the use of Arri WCU4 wireless lens control handsets with full lens mapping support. This important development broadens the DXL2 ecosystem for the European market. D2E version 1.0 gave DITs the ability to wirelessly control the LUT and CDL directly in the DXL2 camera. New to the DXL2 ecosystem being shown at BSC Expo is the Comtek Audio Module, which is the basis for the D2E 2.0 enhancement. In addition to the LUT and CDL from D2E 1.0, DXL2 now has the ability to receive audio feeds from the sound mixer via the industry standard Comtek transmitter, turning DXL2 in camera proxies into D2E dailies with colour and sound. Further advancing the popularity of the DXL camera system is the DXL-M Module and accessory kit for Red’s DSMC cameras, which includes expansive power and communication ports, the DXL menu system and LiColor2. Also included is an additional SDI output path giving users two independently controlled outputs as well as clones. Notable to the DXL-M package is the Panavision Primo HDR viewfinder and motorized cinema lenses, which create a unique option for filmmakers not found anywhere else. Cinematographers keen to infuse distinct looks into their storytelling will be eager to see and handle the company’s proprietary portfolio of optics. Panavision’s team will be available at BSC Expo to offer tips and guidance on the large-format lenses on display, which include: Panaspeed, a large format update of the classic Primo look, offering the fastest option @ T1.4; Ultra Vista large format anamorphic optics with a 1.65x squeeze; H Series spherical lens set created with vintage glass for a classic portrait look; and the Primo X, the weather-proof compact and aerodynamic drone and gimbal solution. “Panavision’s array of camera and glass options are meeting the demand for large-format filmmaking and illustrate the unmatched creative agility available to filmmakers,” adds Snyder. Additionally, wireless or wired control of DXL2 and DXL-M is now available for Android alongside iOS devices. The Android DXL Control app allows users the option of wired control in situations where wireless is not ideal, such as aerial, underwater, and for Techno cranes. LEE Filters will be present at BSC Expo to highlight their range of next-generation filters, including the latest Zircon gels for essential fine-tuning LED control and ProGlass CINE IRND, the ultimate in precision Neutral Density filters for cinema. Panalux will present a diverse range of products on practical display lighting the booth. In addition, there will be demonstrations of the Cine Reflect Lighting System by The Light Box illustrating how any light source can be shaped by diffusion reflectors to produce natural looking light and shadows. “As a camera and lens manufacturer that also serves filmmakers as a trusted equipment and service provider, Panavision is uniquely positioned to respond to the needs of the community,” notes Jeff Allen, managing director, EAME, Panavision. “All the technologies displayed at BSC Expo, including gels and lights, can be integrated in any combination and for any type and style of production to help creatives tell their stories with maximum control from the moment of capture through delivery and display.”
  9. As entertainment industry luminaries prepare to swarm Park City for the Sundance Film Festival, Panavision and Light Iron (Panavision’s post production subsidiary) are proud to announce their collaborations with filmmakers on more than 25 projects screening or competing at the 2019 event (Jan. 24 – Feb. 3). The independent filmmakers behind these unique stories leveraged the innovative services of Panavision and Light Iron to provide a full range of offerings from gear to final deliverables. “We’re honored that independent artists join forces with us to achieve their vision,” says Kim Snyder, president and CEO, Panavision. “We are dedicated to delivering the tools and expertise that content creators need, wherever they are in the world, from pre-production to post.” The 2019 Sundance lineup illustrates Panavision’s enduring commitment to supporting the creative community and reinforces the importance of fostering filmmaking around the world. Across a number of titles, Panavision provided camera, lens and accessory packages, as well as dailies, offline editorial, and final color services from Light Iron. The comprehensive and single-point offerings underscore the company’s dedication to meeting the individual needs of independent filmmakers and their budget demands. Snyder adds, “Panavision’s vast portfolio of cameras and lenses coupled with our technical expertise present filmmakers with a phenomenal mix of options to creatively assemble the right equipment for any job.

  10. Panavision, the entertainment industry’s leading designer, manufacturer and rental provider of high-precision optics and camera systems, has named Zoe Iltsopoulos Borys to lead the company’s Atlanta office as vice president and general manager. Borys will oversee day-to-day operations in the region, and ensure Panavision’s customers continue to receive the highest level of service to support their production needs. “Zoe is a respected partner to the cinematic community and we are pleased to have her on the team at Panavision,” said Michael George, Panavision’s chief operating officer. “Her understanding and familiarity with the needs of our customers will be an invaluable addition to our presence in the region. Filmmakers can be confident that they will continue to receive our superior service, along with our innovative Panavised camera systems and premier lenses.” Borys’ 25 years of experience in the motion picture industry includes business development for Production Resources Group (PRG), and general manager for Fletcher Camera and Lenses (now VER). This is her second turn at Panavision, having served in a marketing role at the company from 1998-2006. Throughout her career, she has been responsible for bringing innovative technology to the creative community, empowering them to bring their vision to the screen. She is also an associate member of the American Society of Cinematographers. Panavision’s Atlanta facilities, located in West Midtown and at Pinewood Studios, are the largest suppliers of camera rental equipment in the southern U.S., with a full staff of prep technicians and camera service experts. The Atlanta team has provided equipment and services to productions such as Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Baby Driver, and Pitch Perfect 3, among others.
  11. Panavision’s Millennium DXL2 8K camera makes its Cine Gear Expo debut on June 1-2 at The Studios at Paramount in Los Angeles. The premier, large-format camera with a new post-centric firmware upgrade will be showcased at the Panavision booth (#S102) in Stage 17, along with four new large-format lens sets, a DXL-inspired accessories kit for RED DSMC2 cameras, and a preview of custom advancements in filter technology. “Millennium DXL2 is the cornerstone of an ever-evolving ecosystem that is designed to improve creative control across every department,” says Michael Cioni, senior vice president of Innovation at Panavision and Light Iron. “By combining the company’s expertise in optics, filters, color science, and post production with strategic partner integrations, we are able to offer filmmakers an entirely fresh image and workflow that is only available within DXL’s ecosystem.” DXL2 incorporates technological advancements based on professional input from acclaimed cinematographers, camera assistants, and post production groups. The camera offers 16 stops of dynamic range with unmatched shadow detail, a native ISO setting of 1600, and 12-bit ProRes XQ up to 120fps. New to the DXL2 is version 1.0 of a directly editable (D2E) workflow. D2E gives DITs wireless LUT and CDL look control and records all color metadata into camera-generated proxy files for instant and render-free dailies. DXL2, which is available to rent worldwide, also incorporates an updated color profile, Light Iron Color 2 (LiColor2). This latest color science provides cinematographers and DITs with a film-inspired tonal look that makes the DXL2 feel more cinematic and less digital. Panavision, renowned for its full line of top-quality optics, will also showcase the company’s large-format spherical and anamorphic lenses. Four new large-format lens sets will be on display, giving Expo attendees the unique opportunity to preview upcoming, innovative glass options: Primo X is the first cinema lens specially designed for use on drones and gimbals. They are fully sealed, weather proof, and counterbalanced to be aerodynamic, and able to easily maintain a proper center of gravity. Primo X lenses come in two primes – 14mm (T3.1) and 24mm (T1.6) – and one 24-70mm zoom (T2.8). Available in 2019. H Series is a traditionally designed spherical lens set with a glamorous, rounded, soft roll-off, giving a pleasing tonal quality to the skin. Created with true vintage glass and coating, these lenses offer slightly elevated blacks for softer contrast. High speeds separate subject and background with a smooth edge transition, allowing subject to appear naturally placed within the depth of the image. Available now. PanaSpeed is a large-format update of the classic Primo look. At T1.4, PanaSpeed will be the fastest large-format lens option available on the market. Available in Q3 2018. Ultra Vista is a series of large-format anamorphic optics. Using a custom 1.6x squeeze, Ultra Vista covers the full height of the 8K sensor in the DXL and presents an ultra-widescreen 2.76:1 aspect ratio along with a classic elliptical bokeh and Panavision horizontal flare. Available in 2019. Panavision will also be unveiling cinema’s first dynamically adjustable liquid crystal neutral density (LCND) filter. LCND instantly adjusts up to six individual stops with a single click or ramp – a significant departure from traditional approaches to front-of-lens filters, which require carrying a set and manually swapping individual NDs based on changing light. LCND starts at 0.3 and goes through 0.6, 0.9, 1.2, 1.5, to 1.8. Available in 2019. Following up on the success of DXL1 and DXL2, Panavision is launching the latest in its cinema line-up by showcasing the newly created DXL-M accessory kit. Designed to work with RED DSMC2 cameras, DXL-M marries the quality and performance of DXL with the smaller size and weight of the DSMC2. DXL-M brings popular features of DXL to RED MONSTRO, GEMINI, and HELIUM sensors, such as the DXL menu system (via an app for the iPhone), LiColor2, motorized lenses, wireless timecode (ACN), and the Primo HDR viewfinder. Available in Q4 2018. Light Iron and LEE Filters can also be found at the Panavision booth.

  13. Is it mostly based of preference? The one's I know by name are Canon, Sony, Zeiss, Cooke's, Leica's, Sigma's, Panavision, Arri and Rokinon. I like the Zeiss super speeds because the smoothness of the gears whenever on I'm on a follow-focus rig. Also the sigma's quality I really love. Rokinon's are pretty decent for their price when you need to get something like a knock-off zeiss, I've heard people say. I own two Roks, really are impressed with them. So all in all, does it comes down to preference/price? or are there more factors?
  14. Looking for more info on this rehoused 14mm f2.8L. Just got a great deal on ebay. There was little info on the post and the guy didn't get back to me. From the photos I thought it was PL, but it's wider and the seat is deeper. Any ideas on the source of the rehouse or the mount?
  15. Panavision, the motion picture industry’s most respected designer, manufacturer and provider of state-of-the-art cinema lenses, high-precision camera systems and innovative post production technologies, will showcase its Millennium DXL2 8K camera at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show, which runs April 7-12 in Las Vegas. Technology leaders from Panavision and its subsidiary Light Iron will also share their vision and expertise during panel discussions throughout the conference. The DXL2 is the evolution of a unique camera ecosystem, built by Panavision based on the input of cinematographers whose feedback contributed to the DXL2’s many significant advances. Introduced in February, the DXL2 features a RED MONSTRO 8K VV sensor with 16-plus stops of dynamic range, improvements in image quality and shadow detail, a native ISO setting of 1600, and ProRes 4K up to 60 fps. Images are presented on the camera in log format using new Light Iron Color 2 science (LiColor2), which streamlines the 8K pipeline and provides quick access to high-quality RAW images. Additional features to the DXL2 include a custom-made, integrated PX-Pro color spectrum filter offering a significant increase in color separation and dramatically higher color precision to the image; a built-in Preston MDR; 24v power; and expanded direct-to-edit features. Hands-on demonstrations of the DXL2 will take place at the Vitec booth (C6025) and at Vitec Creative Solutions (C9544). NAB attendees also have a chance to hear directly from the experts and designers behind Panavision’s cameras and lenses, and post production innovator Light Iron.

  16. Panavision, a global leader in optics and camera systems, will explore the beauty of 8K large format in an eye-opening presentation at SXSW on March 13 at 11:00 a.m. at the Vimeo Theater. Attendees to the interactive discussion will learn about the symbiotic relationship between full-frame imaging devices and large-format optics, and how these tools can help improve production value while remaining cost effective. The session will also present clips that demonstrate the benefits of 8K capture and how ultra-high resolution equates to more creative control. Panavision’s Dan Sasaki, a revered optical engineer who has developed and customized lenses for such films as “Dunkirk,” “The Hateful Eight,” and “Saving Private Ryan,” will lead the presentation. Joining him will be Panavision’s Aaron Kroger, director of digital camera systems, and Light Iron Senior Colorist Sean Dunckley. Sasaki developed many of Panavision’s popular anamorphic and large-format lenses. Since joining the company in 1986, he has designed and customized optics for many award-winning cinematographers, including Steve Yedlin, ASC (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”); Haris Zambarloukos, BSC, GSC (“Murder on the Orient Express”); and Rachel Morrison, ASC (“Black Panther”), to name just a few. Kroger began his career at Light Iron, where he was instrumental in designing the facility’s Outpost mobile post lab as well as training camera crews how to use them on-set. He supported Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” several seasons of “Criminal Minds,” 3D features such as “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and dozens of movies. After Light Iron was acquired by Panavision, Kroger joined the team that created the Millennium DXL camera and has been instrumental in demonstrating the new camera to cinematographers, directors, and studio executives. Dunckley has collaborated with some of the industry's top talent working on features, commercials, and television shows. His credits include Dan Fogelman’s upcoming feature “Life Itself,” past SXSW selections “Patti Cake$,” “Lucky,” and “Kelly & Cal,” and this year’s Oscar-nominated short “Heroin(e).” He has also colored music videos for John Mellencamp, Dr. John, and Beyoncé. Panavision recently introduced the Millennium DXL2, a next-generation, large-format 8K camera that is at the core of a complete imaging ecosystem designed from filmmakers’ perspectives. The DXL2 seamlessly incorporates Panavision’s unmatched optics and camera architecture, the RED MONSTRO 8K VV sensor, and Light Iron Color 2 science (LiColor2). Festival-goers must have a Platinum or Film Badge to attend. To register for SXSW, visit www.sxsw.com.

  18. Panavision (Stand 502) is introducing the new Millennium DXL2 8K camera here at BSC Expo 2018, running Feb. 2-3 at Battersea Evolution. The large-format camera is the heart of a complete imaging ecosystem designed from filmmakers’ perspectives, seamlessly incorporating Panavision’s unmatched optics and camera architecture, the RED MONSTRO 8K VV sensor, and Light Iron color2 science (LiColor2). The DXL2 builds on the success of the Millennium DXL and benefits from Panavision’s unique and storied partnership with cinematographers, whose real-world experience and input are manifested in the DXL2’s many significant advances. “The Millennium DXL2 8K camera system was conceived with the goal of maximum creative control from the moment of capture through delivery and display,” says Michael Cioni, senior VP of Innovation at Panavision and Light Iron. “Panavision’s vast inventory of advanced large-format and anamorphic optics combined with RED’s MONSTRO imager expands what’s possible, allowing filmmakers to create radically inventive and powerfully cinematic images, customized for the needs of the project and the vision of creative teams.” As a camera and lens manufacturer that also serves filmmakers as a trusted rental house, Panavision is uniquely positioned to respond to the needs of the community. Since its introduction, the DXL has been used on over 20 feature films, and countless television shows, commercials and music videos. Oscar® nominee John Schwartzman, ASC photographed two features on the DXL and is among those who have tested the DXL2, providing input that has guided the design. Schwartzman says, “When you take an 8K image and super-sample it, it only gets better. It’s absolutely beautiful to look at. For me, the Millennium DXL2 is a no-brainer. It’s something I would use on anything. It does it all. And in fact, I’m currently planning to shoot my next feature with it.” The RED MONSTRO 8K VV sensor in the DXL2 offers a healthy 16-plus stops of dynamic range with improvements in image quality and shadow detail, a native ISO setting of 1600, and ProRes 4K up to 60 fps. Images are presented on the camera in log format using Light Iron color science. An integrated PX-Pro color spectrum filter custom-made for the DXL offers a significant increase in color separation and dramatically higher color precision to the image. Built-in Preston MDR, 24v power and expanded direct-to-edit features are also standard equipment on the DXL2. An anamorphic flare attachment (AFA) offers a convenient, controllable method of introducing flare with spherical lenses. New to the DXL2, LiColor2 streamlines the 8K pipeline, smoothly handling the workflow and offering convenient and quick access to high-quality RAW images, accommodating direct to edit without delays. “We are proud to provide an ecosystem of tools that gives filmmakers more choices to express their vision,” adds Panavision CEO and President Kim Snyder. “We have been listening to feedback from cinematographers and the results of our collaboration are directly manifested in the DXL2. We remain committed to continuous technological development and are excited to bring this new camera to market.” The Millennium DXL2 will be presented at the Panavision booth (Stand 502) alongside a showcase of the company’s large-format and anamorphic optics, as well as the latest products and solutions from Panalux, Light Iron and Panavision Grip and Remote Systems. Also at BSC Expo, Panavision presents “The Beauty of Large Format 8K” at 14:00 on Feb. 2 in the seminar room. The session will offer a preliminary introduction to the DXL2 while taking a deep dive into the relationship between resolution and large-format optics. Cioni will guide the discussion and present clips that demonstrate the benefits of 8K capture and how ultra-high resolution equates to creative control with smoother imagery. DXL2 cameras are available now to rent exclusively from Panavision on a worldwide basis. For more information, visit www.panavision.com/dxl.
  19. Panavision has named Dan Hammond, a longtime creative solutions technologist in the industry, as vice president and general manager of Panavision Hollywood. Hammond will be responsible for overseeing daily operations at the facility, and working with the Hollywood team to leverage the exceptional camera systems, optics, service and support that Panavision customers have come to expect. Hammond is a Panavision veteran, who worked at the company between 1989 and 2008 in various departments, including training, technical marketing, and sales.

Hammond is active with industry organizations, and is an associate member of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC), as well as a member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (ATAS) and Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP). “Dan has a broad range of strengths in developing technology solutions, and extensive experience providing production studios, cinematographers and directors with the products and services they need on a global level,” said Michael George, Panavision’s chief operating officers, to whom Hammond will directly report. “We are excited to have him back with the team at Panavision.” Hammond added, “Service, innovation, and growth are always the top priority at Panavision. I look forward to continuing to work with filmmakers to provide creative solutions and further expanding Panavision Hollywood’s offerings to the production community.” For more information, visit www.panavision.com.
  20. A commercial I shot in September was released today and I thought that it would be interesting to post it here as it has a mix of "things that the client wanted" and "things that we wanted" on a really tight budget. Directed by Ciarán Dooley, the commercial is a 2 minutes commercial for a company called Homestore + More which sells House thingies such as cutlery, ornaments, towels, etc here in Ireland and it tells the story of an elderly widow who is urged to seek companionship by her loving grandson Everybody had a clear vision of what they wanted to do for the campaign as they had shot 2 commercials already for the brand when I came on board so it was great to be able to enter a group of people who had been working together for such a long time and getting great results. Our guidelines for the commercial were "naturalistic and uplifting cinematography mixed with a bit of melancholy and nostalgia" and I think that we achieved it. Ciarán wanted to shoot wide shots to show the loneliness of the woman and we found really great spots in our location, that, mixed with two days of really good weather and scheduling some key shots at the right times of the day worked great for the tone we wanted to create. I also wanted to give him the freedom to shoot 180º at any time as our 2 day schedule was really really really tight. 90% of it is natural light by the way, except the kitchen, which had to go from "normal" to "happy" because it was the place where we saw all the products from Homestore and the bedroom, lit with a 2.5K through a couple of frames of diffusion from outside. It has gotten great reactions already.

  22. TORONTO (September 27, 2017)—Panavision announced that Johanna Gravelle has joined the company as Canada’s national sales manager. Gravelle will be based in Toronto, and is responsible for ensuring that customers receive unparalleled service and top-notch camera and lens systems for their productions in the region. “We are truly excited to have Johanna join the Panavision team,” says Paul Mason, senior vice president and CFO of Panavision Canada. “Her invaluable experience and longstanding relationships will contribute to our progressive efforts to serve the needs of cinematographers and production companies across Canada at the highest level achievable.” Gravelle brings a wealth of entertainment industry experience to Panavision, having spent over a decade working with Kodak in both senior sales and marketing leadership roles. During her time at the company, she served as manager of Kodak Canada before making the move to lead marketing efforts in Australia, and eventually worldwide. Gravelle begins immediately while transitioning into her role alongside Panavision Canada’s Vice President/Director of Sales and Marketing Jeffrey Flowers, who after 33 years at Panavision Canada will retire at the end of 2017. Flowers career at Panavision began in the Toronto lighting department. He then went on to work as a commercial production manager before returning to Panavision. Flowers moved up the ranks through the camera department, and relocated to Vancouver where he led the regional office and ultimately transitioned to his national sales and marketing role. In 2016, Flower’s contributions to the motion picture industry were recognized by the Canadian Society of Cinematographers during the annual gala event where he was presented with the Bill Hilson Award for “outstanding service contributing to the development of the motion picture industry.” “On behalf of the entire Panavision team, I’d like to thank Jeff for his dedication and significant contributions to the company” said Panavision President and CEO Kim Snyder. “Jeff is highly respected amongst the Canadian production community and he will be greatly missed.”
  23. Hi all, I'm starting prep work for my college thesis at Emerson and I'm researching into the different challenges with shooting the project on film. I'm particularly thinking 16mm, just for budgetary reasons, and can't seem to find a Super 16mm camera that shoots up to 300 fps other than scientific/military cameras. The film is about a track athlete, so I'm wanting to get some very beautiful, frozen moment shots of our talent running. Does anyone know of any cameras that shoot as high as 300 fps? I see most of the HS cameras from Arri only go up to 150 fps. Thanks!
