Manios Digital & Film Becomes Worldwide Distributor for New Veydra Lens Expander

-

LR-Veydra Expander2-emailLR-Veydra Expander2Manios Digital & Film has reached an agreement with cinema lens maker Veydra to become the exclusive, worldwide distributor for its new lens accessory, the Veydra 1.2x PL to PL Expander. The Expander makes it possible to use vintage zoom lenses from the Academy-format era with current generation Super 35 and larger sensor cameras.

The Veydra 1.2x PL to PL Expander expands the image circle of vintage zoom lenses from 28mm to 36mm diagonal with only ½ stop light loss. Such lenses can then be used with RED‘s Epic Dragon and other PL-mounted digital cameras with sensors larger than the Academy aperture, up to a 34mm image circle. The Expander is also compatible with the Angenieux Optimo 24-290 cinema lens.

“The Veydra Expander gives vintage zoom lenses a new lease on life,” said Manios Digital & Film president Steven Manios Jr. “Cinematographers can once again use their favorite vintage zoom lenses and recapture the classic film looks of yesteryear.”

“We are very excited to team with Veydra in introducing a product that is a great addition to the cinematographer’s toolkit,” Manios added.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

1
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.
