AJA Video Systems has revealed the list of third-party camera accessory developers that are supporting its new CION camera. Included is Alphatron with its electronic viewfi nder (EVF-035W-3G) and a full line of accessories including matte boxes, follow focusses, camera plates and a pedestal. At the same time MTF has announced a host of new lens adapters: Nikon/G, Canon EF, Canon EF (electric), Canon FD, ARRI Bayonet and an optical B4 to CION package. The other developers working on CION enabled gear are Wooden Camera, Vocas and Zacuto. With the Master Pan installed, users can chose between two modes of operation. The fi rst is inward panning that can be used to automatically keep a pre-determined subject in frame whilst sliding, creating a ‘parallax’ effect. The second is outward panning that allows users to capture an entire scene or landscape with one sweeping shot. www.octica.tv www.aja.com Searching? broadcast cameraman Search with full details of hundreds of GTC accredited Camera Operators, Lighting Cameramen, DoPs and specialist cameramen, why go anywhere else? www.gtc.org.uk/search 10 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 94 OCTOBER 2014 TV-BAY094OCT14 v118.indd 10 07/10/2014 15:37 TV
