Litepanels: Gemini 2×1 Soft Panel and Gemini Firmware Update

Gemini, the industry’s most accurate and versatile 2×1 soft panel, will be on display at cinec 2018. The light’s most recent firmware update includes new special effects, new gel modes, and advanced fan operation. Gemini eliminates the need for color correction by offering full-spectrum white light that’s perfect for lighting talent and rendering exceptional color. Lighting professionals can “go bold” by lighting with any color in the 360-degree color spectrum and popular gels within Gemini’s color modes.  Gemini’s versatile, ballast-free, lightweight design allows the light to be rigged more easily, requiring fewer cables because the power supply is built-in. The production-friendly soft panel can also deliver full-intensity output when powered by batteries such as the Anton/Bauer CINE VCLX battery.

Vinten and Sachtler: flowtech100 Carbon-Fibre Tripod

flowtech100 is the newest addition to the award-winning flowtech carbon-fibre tripod range. Compatible with all major 100-millimeter fluid heads, flowtech100 supports a payload of up to 30 kilograms (66 pounds), making it the ideal tripod for heavy-duty electronic newsgathering, electronic field production, and a wide range of wildlife, commercial, and documentary productions.

Like flowtech75, flowtech100 is based on an exclusive carbon-fibre technology that includes the world’s fastest-deploying tripod legs. With unique quick-release brakes conveniently located at the top of the tripod, the flowtech100 legs can be deployed simultaneously and adjust automatically to the ground’s surface — saving operators from having to bend over and manually adjust multiple brakes on each leg. The exceptional torsional stiffness of flowtech100 ensures that the tripod will not twist during camera-panning movements.

Anton/Bauer Dionic XT Battery Series

Available in both V-Mount and Gold Mount, the high-performing and compact new Dionic XT is a 14V Li-Ion battery capable of delivering up to 12A of continuous power. This highly dependable, long-lasting battery line is targeted to cinematographers, institutional broadcasters, rental houses, owners, and operators of high-power portable fixtures and users of camera stabilizer systems.

With two models — the Dionic XT90 and the Dionic XT150 — the Dionic series features ultrahigh-strength ABS and rubber construction that cushions and protects the battery and ensures industry-standard performance even in the most demanding conditions, including extreme heat, humidity, and cold. Dionic XT’s superior cell technology is engineered for maximum cycle life, enabling the battery to be recharged many more times than competing batteries for superior ROI and the lowest management overhead. Dionic XT batteries not only work with Anton/Bauer’s complete line of battery charging systems, but they are also cross-compatible with competing brands’ charging systems and offer superior performance for powering accessories such as portable LED lighting.

The 2560 offers cine-standard position of controls (including brakes) and a front-handle mount for intuitive, controlled positioning of the camera, as well as a lightweight magnesium housing and carbon-fiber cover for best-in-class performance, power-to-weight ratio, and reliability.
