  1. Atomos Samurai Blade

    Comments Off on Atomos Samurai Blade

    The Atomos Samurai Blade is a HD-SDI recorder and 5″ field monitor in one powerful unit.  We rent the recorder/monitor with a 240GB SSD in an Atomos caddy, a USB 3.0 dock, 3′ HD-SDI cable, one NP-F series battery, an AC power adapter, and a magic arm.

    The Samurai Blade lets you record in resolutions up to 1080p30/1080i60 to ProRes HQ, 422, or LT, or Avid DNxHD, all while monitoring on the 1280×720 5″ IPS display. The touchscreen monitor can display waveform, vectorscope, luma parade, RGB, focus peaking, zebra, and false color. It also supports conversion for Canon’s C-log to Rec709, making it a perfect companion to a Canon C100 or C300.

    The Samurai Blade is also a great option for generating proxy files, with timecode and record start-stop over SDI.

  2. Zeiss 85mm T1.5 CP2 Lens with EF Mount

    Comments Off on Zeiss 85mm T1.5 CP2 Lens with EF Mount

    The Zeiss CP.2 85mm T1.5 lens with EF mount is an excellent long lens on both full frame and super 35 sensors.  The Compact Prime lens family offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.

    The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect circle bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  Zeiss CP.2s are fully manual, and barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. All our CP.2 lenses have imperial markings (in feet).

    Our Zeiss CP.2 lenses can be rented as a kit. We don’t accept advance reservations for individual lenses, but you can pick them up same-day with an appointment.

    Insurance or a deposit is required for this rental.

  3. Blue Yeti USB Microphone

    Comments Off on Blue Yeti USB Microphone

    The Blue Yeti is the defacto standard among USB microphones. Connect your microphone directly to your computer, without needing a sound board, mixer, or preamp. This is a great option for webcasting, voiceover, or anywhere you need studio sound without any complicated setup.

    This USB microphone has four different pickup patterns, making it versatile enough for nearly any application. We include the desktop stand with your rental.

    We also rent the Blue Radius Shockmount designed specifically for the Yeti, to help reduce handling noise, when mounted to a standard mic stand.
