Buono Chooses OConnor for The Art of Visual Storytelling Tour Posted: 04/07/2013
Buono Chooses OConnor for The Art of Visual Storytelling Tour

 

When Saturday Night Live film unit cinematographer Alex Buono decided to share his knowledge of the industry in a big way with a 31-city educational tour he calls The Art of Visual Storytelling, the first pieces of equipment he chose for his travel package were fluid heads by OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. My biggest mandate in deciding to plan a workshop is that Im demonstrating with the exact tools that I actually use in my professional work, he says. OConnor fluid heads are probably the most ubiquitous piece of gear on my sets. I literally have an OConnor on every single shoot, so it was an imperative of mine to include OConnor in this workshop.

PAG Power for DSLR and Digital Cinema Cameras Posted: 14/01/2013
PAG Power for DSLR and amp; Digital Cinema Cameras

PAG has introduced new battery mounts and power leads that make it possible to power the latest DSLR and digital cinema cameras using its PAGlink intelligent, high-power, linking battery system.

 

The PAGlink battery system was conceived with multi-camera compatibility in mind. Rather than using a different batteries and chargers for each camera type, PAG anticipated that it would be more efficient to use the V-Mount (V-Lok/V-Lock) Li-Ion batteries, designed for shoulder-mounted broadcast cameras, for every camera power application. When combined, two PAGlink batteries have a capacity of 192 watt-hours and a current draw capability of 12A, which is superior to the 10A provided by so-called high-current cell technologies. If required, PAGlink allows a third or fourth battery to be added, providing endless power for any camera set-up. The key was to create a system of compact, lightweight batteries that could be used individually for small, low power-consumption cameras (DSLR, Blackmagic Digital Cinema, Canon C300/500) which could then be linked, combining capacities for set-ups that have a higher power consumption or that draw a greater current (Arri Alexa, Red One/Epic/Scarlet, Sony F55/F65 etc). The packs incorporate the high-current contacts required for such demanding applications. PAGs approach gives you high-capacity Li-Ion batteries that employ less expensive standard Li-Ion cell-technology. Combining the capacities of individual 96Wh Li-Ion batteries ensures that all your batteries are legally transportable by passenger aircraft.
