    Sigma Classic Roadshow

    This is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the Classic Prime lenses from Sigma.   The Classic Primes have a modified coating formula which according to Sigma gives them a warm, vintage look reminiscent of the’70s with some flare and ghosting but with the same sharpness as the FF High-Speed Primes.  The lenses being demonstrated are the new Cine Primes X10 and Cine Classic Primes X10.   Seeing is believing   Come along and try out these lenses for yourself and discover why Sigma lenses are a great choice. See how they perform with a Sony FX9 camera and see if the 'Vintage' look is for you. Held in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere you can chat with other attendees to understand if these lenses fit your requirements and what they think about the competition. This event will equip you with the practical knowledge and hands-on experience to know whether investing in these lenses is worth it, which accessories are best and which to avoid.   The day has one session with plenty of time for you to get your hands on the kit. Equipment being demonstrated includes the Cine Primes X10 and Cine Classic Primes X10 from Sigma and the Sony FX9 camera.   Come along and see: How Classic Primes compare against the competition Hands-on experience of using the Sigma lenses The benefits of Vintage look lenses

    New Zeiss Supreme Prime Radiance lenses open day

    This is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the new Supreme Prime Radiance lenses from Zeiss.   Based on the Zeiss Supreme primes, the Radiance lenses have a new T*blue coating enabling cinematographers to achieve consistent and controllable flares while maintaining contrast and avoiding transmission loss.   Designed for large format cameras they offer fast speed at T1.5 in a compact, light-weight package. They are warmer than the regular Supreme Primes but Zeiss feels that they still match very well which is why they left out the extreme focal lengths on both ends. Allowing you to mix and match as you see fit.   Seeing is believing   Come along and try out these lenses for yourself and discover way Zeiss lenses are proving very popular with cinematographers. See how they perform with a Sony VENICE camera and see for yourself the controllable consistent flares these lenses produce.   Held in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere you can chat with other attendees to understand if these lenses fit your requirements and what they think about the competition. This event will equip you with the practical knowledge and hands-on experience to know whether investing in these lenses is worth it, which accessories are best and which to avoid.   The day has one session with plenty of time for you to get your hands on the kit. Equipment being demonstrated includes the new Supreme Prime Radiance lenses plus the original Supremes for comparison purposes and the Sony VENICE camera.

  • What the hell is gamma anyway? with Alister Chapman

    What the hell is gamma anyway? with Alister Chapman

    Join Cinematographer Alister Chapman as he explores the often confusing world of gamma curves in this interactive webinar. We have all heard the term gamma but what does it really mean? How does it affect what we actually capture and how does gamma effect the way an image looks on a screen? As more and more TV’s start to support more than one gamma it’s going to become important to understand which gamma you need to use for your content capture, archive and delivery?   To find out register for our FREE webinar now.   We are running a 90 minute session starting at 11:00. This will be an interactive webinar and questions will be welcome at anytime.   Alister will look at what a gamma curve is, why we need them and what they do. Looking at different capture gammas such as Rec-709, Hyper-gamma and S-log Alister will look at the differences between each, trying to get past the techno-babble so that you will understand which to use for different applications and how they effect the picture information you are recording. What is “the knee” what is a shoulder, toe and roll-off and why might we need them? Which gammas have them and which do not? Why are some gammas better exposed brightly while others work better exposed a bit darker? What happens if we record without using a gamma curve as happens when shooting linear raw? All these questions will be answered in the first half.   In the second half Alister will look at how different display gammas effect the way images look on a TV or monitor. As HDR becomes common place it is going to become very important to understand the differences between Rec-709, S-log ST2084 and HLG (Hybrid log gamma). How do you convert from one gamma to another in post production and how do different gamma curves behave in post production? As modern and future TV’s start to support more than one gamma it’s going to become important to understand which gamma you need to use for your content archive and delivery. Should you continue to use Rec-709 for your programme masters or should you consider other options such as HLG, ST2084 or perhaps even S-Log3?
