    Comments Off on Quasar Science Q-LED 4 ft X-fade Tubes

    Quasar Science 4-foot Q-LED X-fade tubes are variable color temperature, dimmable, and brighter than comparable fluorescent tubes. Easily adjust from 2000K to 6000K using the dial on the end of the tube. No ballast is required, making this one of the easiest soft lights to rig anywhere. We include the tube and Q-tap AC cable. We suggest pairing your Q-LED tubes with mounting hardware, dimmers, and extension cords.

  2. Fujinon MK 50-135mm T2.9 Zoom Lens

    Comments Off on Fujinon MK 50-135mm T2.9 Zoom Lens

    The Fujinon MK series 50-135mm T2.9 zoom lens is a medium-telephoto zoom designed for E-mount cameras with NEX or super 35 sensors, like the Sony FS7 and a6500.  It can also work with FE-mount cameras in crop mode.

    The continuous T2.9 aperture, fixed length, and three standard 0.8 pitch gears make this a powerful option for both scripted and run-and-gun shooting styles. The lens is entirely non-electric, meaning that focus, zoom, and aperture are controlled manually, although a servo motor can be easily installed. The lens has an 85mm outside diameter and 82mm front threads. The lens also features a macro mode, which moves the close focus point from 1.2m to 0.85m.

    Jon’s Take:

    “Fujinon has combined the best parts of great cinema and broadcast lenses together into what is probably the most useful set of zooms available for Sony’s E-mount video cameras. The MK series is somehow able to be lightweight, sharp, relatively fast, and still affordable. The Fuji pedigree shows through with adjustable back focus, for a perfect parfocal lens. In addition, breathing is near zero, flares are relatively well-controlled, and the lenses are usable even wide open. 

    As for negatives, the MK series is only for E-mount cameras and can’t be easily adapted to EF, PL, or used for full frame.  The E mount standard does have some play, so shooters used to PL will probably want to use a lens support.”
