Welcome to the latest issue of our weekly roundup of news from the TV and film industry.
This week we are featuring the Televisual Production Technology Survey that lists the most popular kit used for productions, Rotolight’s new NEO 2 Explorer Kit and a fantastic Litepanels Step into the light workshop featuring top photographer and filmmaker David Newton.
Televisual Magazine have released the results of their annual Production Technology Survey for 2018 after asking more than 200 senior programmers, exec producers, series producers, line producers and directors what cameras they used in making their programmes. Much like last year, the Sony FS7 was named the most frequently used production camera with 28% of the vote, followed by the Canon C300 Mark II with an 11% share. The ARRI AMIRA and ALEXA as well as the Sony F5 complete the top 5.
Rotolight NEO 2 Explorer Kit
Rotolight have launched the NEO 2 Explorer Kit, which is one of the lightest three-light kits on the market weighing in at just below 7 kilos. Apart from including three of the award-winning NEO 2 LED Lights, the Explorer kit also includes light stands, colour FX filters and power supplies.
The Rotolight NEO 2 is an all-in-one High Speed Sync flash and continuous on-camera LED offering zero recycle time making it the perfect hybrid LED for both photography and video.
And last but not least, we want to invite you to join us in our new lighting workshop next week on July 4th with LitePanels and professional photographer & filmmaker David Newton where you can learn new lighting tips and skills for both photo and film. During the session you’ll explore the use of Litepanels LED light technology, including the new Gemini 2x1 RGBWW soft light, for both filming and photography.
To see these new products in action, give us a call to arrange a demo on 0208 977 1222. If you want to learn more, head over to our website www.visuals.co.uk.
