Also this week, Blackmagic Design announced a new DeckLink 8K Pro Mini capture card with support for a wide range of formats from HD all the way up to 4K and 8K DCI making it the perfect addition to your high-dynamic range and high-resolution workflow.

Panther X-Type Dolly

Celebrating 40 years of innovation in the camera grip department Panther announced their new X-Type Dolly at IBC offering exciting new features, ultimate versatility and substantial weight savings thanks to the removable column. The new X-type dolly also offers 360 degree column rotation and a low centre of gravity for extra stability. The Crab and Steer modes offer significant flexibility and extra precision when it comes to movement while a narrow and wide gauge is also supported in addition to the ability to add a Steer-out extension. The break stops both the track and studio wheels and the design accommodates various wheel types and sizes for different terrains and locations, while the Range Extender provides an extra lift range without compromising size.
