  1. 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.”
  2.

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.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. 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).

  9. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. 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. Most recently he was at Production Resource Group (PRG), expanding his technical services skills. 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.
  13. 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.

The two-time Oscar®-winner (Legends of the Fall, Braveheart) will discuss excerpts from his films, share anecdotes from the set, and answer questions from the audience. At the Camerimage exhibition area in the Opera Nova, Panavision will have Millennium DXLs on display for festival attendees to get hands-on with the camera. The new HDR OLED Primo Viewfinder, the advanced PX-Pro color spectrum filter, and a selection of innovative large-format and anamorphic Panavision lenses also will be showcased alongside the Panavision System 65mm film camera used to shoot Murder on the Orient Express. The iconic tale of mystery aboard the legendary train, directed by Kenneth Branagh and shot by Haris Zambarloukos, ASC, GSC, will screen on the opening night of Camerimage. Adjacent to the Panavision exhibit, the Light Iron Theater will screen DXL footage in HDR format; Panalux will demonstrate their new underwater light, the AmphiTube product range, which features a bi-color LED solution designed for both wet and dry environments; and LEE Filters, celebrating 50 years in business, will showcase their next-generation neutral density PanaND filters.
  15. 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.”
  16. 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!

  19. WOODLAND HILLS, CA, (June 1, 2017) – Panavision will reveal advanced new tools for its unprecedented, large-format Millennium DXL 8K camera at their booth in Stage 2 (#S302) at Cine Gear Expo, June 2-3. Demonstrating the evolution of their innovative approach to filmmaking, Panavision will debut a set of fast, wirelessly controlled “Primo Artiste” lenses that cover the full 8K HDR image; the world’s first HDR OLED “Primo” Viewfinder; a new color spectrum filter called “PX-Pro”; and “DXL Control,” an iPhone app for remote camera control. These new technologies support Panavision’s Millennium DXL, which was engineered to offer superior creative control over the entire imaging chain. “The DXL was designed based on feedback from veteran filmmakers who wanted a large format digital system to serve their vision, and these new tools extend that level of innovation,” notes Panavision CEO Kim Snyder. “We are excited that the camera has been met with great enthusiasm for what it offers in terms of creative flexibility and progressive technology at the service of the artist.” Featuring Panavision’s premier large format optics and modular accessories, advanced 8K sensor technology from RED, and unique color science and workflow optimization from Light Iron, the Millennium DXL has been the camera of choice for numerous productions since becoming available in January. “Filmmakers have chosen the camera to shoot major motion pictures, commercials and TV shows,” says Panavision and Light Iron Senior Vice President of Innovation Michael Cioni. “We’ve been listening to filmmakers and developing top-notch capabilities for the camera, as well as fine-tuning what’s next for its ecosystem. These savvy tools continue our solution-focused efforts to deliver the best in class.” The Primo Viewfinder is the industry’s first HDR OLED viewfinder. Designed, engineered and manufactured at Panavision, the Primo Viewfinder offers Panavision optics and proprietary mechanics, an HDR OLED screen, 600-nit brightness, image smoothing, a heater, and custom Panavision glass to limit eye fatigue and make it easier to focus in very bright or dark environments. The viewfinder also boasts a theoretical contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. In creating the Primo Viewfinder, Panavision has made liberal use of customer feedback. “We have been extremely transparent with our trusted customers and shown them iterations along the way,” explains Cioni. “Their fingerprints go into this camera, because it’s their hands that touch the buttons.” Panavision will be showcasing a prototype of its PX-Pro color spectrum filter, which ushers in a significant increase in color separation and dramatically higher color precision. The filters provide an infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) cut that improves color clarity and reduces noise and IR contamination, which can corrupt or distort digitally captured images. “PX-Pro was custom made for DXL,” says Haluki Sadahiro, director of Panavision Electronics and Product Development. “It has been specially designed to allow for a wider range of precise color that supports all color palettes and flare characterizes of lenses new and old, while reducing many of the optical artifacts we see on digital cinema cameras.” The Primo Artiste lenses, available by the end of 2017, are a full series of T/1.8 Prime lenses, making them the fastest optics available for large format cinematography. The Artiste Series is an evolutionary step in large format optics design, becoming the second series of Panavision lenses to include a fully internalized motor and complete metadata compatibility. The essence of the Artiste concept is an innovative design that takes advantage of the aesthetic flexibility available within large format digital imagers, and the resulting look evokes a quality reminiscent of vintage optics. The series incorporates modern features such as focus breathing control, even field illumination and optimized close focus performance. “The primary goal of the Primo Artiste line is to balance the intricacies of aberration control and the art of lens design to create a lens that produces images that resonate with our instinct to relate to painterly images that are identified by smooth transitions between surrounding objects,” says Panavision VP Optical Engineer and Lens Strategy Dan Sasaki. An added feature of the Primo Artiste series is a true anamorphic glass attachment that retains the spherical nature of the base lens yet induces many of the artifacts associated with anamorphic photography such as directional flares and distorted bokeh. The Artiste lenses will initially come in eleven focal lengths (27mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 65mm, 80mm, 100mm, 125mm, 150mm, 200mm, and 250mm) with expanded focal lengths available in 2018 New DXL Control software mirrors the camera menu system on the user’s Apple device, allowing wireless camera control. “It’s got all the familiar buttons and displays,” says Cioni, who notes the software is available now with a DXL camera rental, and will be available to download for free from the iTunes store starting June 2. Cine Gear attendees will also see the Millennium DXL in action on three live sets that show different lighting conditions, mounted with the Primo Artiste and the Panavision T Series anamorphic lenses. Also at the booth, Light Iron will have their unique post production solutions on display in a theater via an HDR Video Village Cart showcasing 8K HDR DXL footage. Light Iron representatives will be demonstrating how this system helps cinematographers evaluate their images simultaneously in high dynamic range and standard, or low, dynamic range. Having access to both image specs while in production enables cinematographers to better prepare for post-production color grading, given that distributors are frequently requiring both standard- and high-dynamic range deliverables. Light Iron colorists will also be on hand to discuss the finishing process as well as “Light Iron Color,” which is the custom color science built into the DXL. LEE Filters will be exhibiting their ProGlass Cine range of neutral-density filters. ProGlass Cine filters are designed to meet the exacting needs of all cinematographers — whether shooting digitally or on film. They are remarkably neutral, eliminating infrared pollution and ensuring all colors remain accurate and true. This simplifies workflow, saves time and enables cinematographers to focus on their creative goals. For more information on Panavision, visit www.panavision.com.

  21. One-of-a-kind Anamorphic or Spherical Angenieux 25-250 Zoom Lens with compact zoom motor, hand held zoom-speed controller, cables, bracket, and custom case. Excellent condition. $6950 Dan Sasaki at Panavision rebuilt and rehoused this Angenieux 25-250 HP. He added a special low dispersion front element coated with Panavision's anti-reflection coating, and a 119mm Front Filter thread. He improved the mechanics with smoother movement of the barrel and standard focus gearing at the rear of the lens. He fitted the lens with a compact Panavision Zoom motor, which can be removed, and a Panavision/Shiga glass rear 2x Anamorphic capsule that can be added with five hex bolts so the lens can be used as either anamorphic or spherical. The Anamorphic capsule alone is worth more than the entire package. This package is priced to sell fast at $6950. The lens is fitted with a removable PV mount, but a stainless steel PL flange from Zeiss, Century, or MTF Services can easily bolt on. The Anamorphic capsule; however, has a fixed PV mount and would require an adapter or remounted. I have a stainless steel PV to Canon mount that Ken Stone made which can be included in the package for an extra $450. *If purchased before May 8th 2017, I can hand deliver this to Panavision in Woodland Hills for pick-up. If purchased after May 8th, the lens will be shipped from Europe and the buyer covers shipping, insurance, and customs clearance. for images: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0NSXBkbH4f2OXpwYjBOTXp3Q28/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0NSXBkbH4f2Y2EzWkVRNzEwRjg/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0NSXBkbH4f2VV9jOTk4OTZadlk/view?usp=sharing

  23. Have to admit I'm interested in how this is coming along, even though I'm not a Star Wars fan. Greig Fraser is supposed to shoot this with the 1.25x Ultra Panavision 70 anamorphics rebuilt for The Hateful Eight. He's also shooting on film, and the Alexa 65. So are the lenses being used on 65mm, or on the Alexa 65? Will the ratio be 2.75:1? Is he shooting anything on 35 (like Episode 8 is)? Anybody heard more about it?

This was the go to zoom lens during the 70's and 80's and this particular lens has a very rich history.

Author!, Without A Trace, The Big Chill, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Brighton Beach Memoirs, Eddie, and Jingle All The Way. I know this because I was the first 1st or 2nd camera assistant on most of these films. Excellent optics. PL mount can be easily made to replace the PV mount. An adapter is also available from Adorama made by MTF. See info below. If you are in the Los Angeles area you can have the lens checked out at your favorite rental house.

  25. Coming out in March 2017, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings Of Summer) and shot by Larry Fong, Kong: Skull Island is NOT a remake, it takes place during the 70's, and involves a scientific expedition to an uncharted island awakening titanic forces of nature, a mission of discovery becomes an explosive war between monster & man. A-list cast on board, including John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Shea Wigham, Corey Hawkins, John C. Reilly, John Ortiz, etc, etc. First trailer from Comic Con, a few months back: QT 1080p link: http://pdl.warnerbros.com/wbol/ww/movies/kongsdcc/KONG_TRAILER_1-1080.mov Second trailer out today, with a slightly different tone: QT 1080p link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/64705418/k2/KONG_SKULL_ISLAND_TRAILER_3-1080.mov Shot on the Alexa anamorphically, looks like Panavision lenses to me, C-series or E I'd say. Gotta say, Fong always does great work on film, but I've never seen the Alexa look this good, the texture is quite nice, I wonder if they added some grain, it's also really vibrant & beautiful.
