New Gear

We have just purchased a new Sony PXW FS7 package. This is a perfect run-and-fun camera which is great for Mark. It's also excellent for hand-held. It has 14 Fstops, it's easy to color correct and possesses the same sensor as the Sony F5 camera. Mark is looking forward to getting some great footage for our customers in the next few months...stay tuned.

Also bought a Panasonic Varicam AJ-2700 3 chip camera with minimal hours that shoots beautiful imagery. For details on both cameras, check out our gear list.

Bought a Canon 70D camera which works great for time-lapse footage. We used it on a tradeshow timelapse for Athena Video's customer General Electric Co. Let us know if you want to see a sample.

VC recently beefed up our new Canon 5D Mark III with a cool new beefy follow focus and more. Mark has had a goal of doing this for quite awhile, and now he's extremely pleased with the results.

Recently purchased a Socanoland LED light. (Socanoland NOVA 100-CD Daylight 12x12 LED). Works great.

Just bought a Canon 5D Mark III camera. New image processor makes it better at photographing in low-light situations and gives it speed and power. It also has a 22.3 megapixel full frame CMOS Sensor. A new firmware update provides uncompressed HDMI output. It now supports 1080/30p and 720/60P and continuous recording times up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds.

We now own an 8'x8' green screen with a Hollywood frame. Mark selected this frame because of its high quality.

Visual Concepts now owns an ATEM 1 ME Prodswitch/Broadpanel Switcher. This switcher is great for live production. Multi view allows 10 channels of video to be displayed on a single SDI or HDMI television or monitor. Mark likes it because it has low latency with full digital throughput and 3 auxilliary outputs.

Bigscreen TV rentals-We now own a number of big screen TVs which are great for confidence monitors during live events or for group viewing. We own 2 47" HDTVs, and 2 32"LCD HDTVs. This is in addition to our 3 Pioneer HD Plasma TVs (2 50" and 1 42"). All are available for rental.

Visual Concepts also acquired a Atomos Samurai recorder and a KiPro digital recorder. These are excellent tools for direct to digital field production in ProRes422. They are tapeless recording devices that records high-quality Apple ProRes 422 QuickTime files onto computer-friendly Storage Module media. Because it features SD/HD-SDI, HDMI, and analog inputs, you can interface with virtually any type of camera for your next production. It's perfect for long-form recording at corporate meetings.
