Lindsey Optics Introduces First-Ever FSND Rota-Grad Filters


Lindsey Optics
Lindsey Optics’ Rodo-Grad Filters

Lindsey Optics has put a twist on FSND filters with its new range of Brilliant Rota-Grads, rotating full spectrum graduated neutral density filters which fit directly onto 4X6.5″ rod-mounted matte boxes for the first time ever.

The new Rota-Grads offer the benefits of FSND tech with a choice of densities and a proprietary rotating tray design for practical user advantages, such as minimized filter handling, larger filter aperture, easy alignment and quicker orientation. It also features a 138mm round graduated FSND filter installed in a geared rotating tray mount that fits into a single matte box slot and a geared thumbwheel that can be set using a simple sliding Rota-Lock.

The Brilliant solution offers a significantly larger aperture than other alternatives, enabling coverage of both large diameter and wide-angle lenses, providing a generous 5.2-inch opening that remains constant at any rotation angle. The Rota-Grads are available in 4 densities: ND 0.3 (1 stop), ND 0.6 (2 stops), ND 0.9 (3 stops) and ND 1.2 (4 stops), attenuating the full spectrum of light including UV, visible and infrared. The filters feature both AR and Easy Clean coatings for improved handling.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
