The Lens Bracelet – Pro Series

The Lens Bracelet – Pro Series

Say Hello To The New Lens Bracelets
Our friend Adam Elmakias has released a pro version of his insanely popular Lens Bracelets. He sent us some samples, and we really dig them. Still waiting on the 800mm bracelet, or maybe sleeve.

They’ll ship them worldwide.

Lens Bracelet Official Release
The Lens Bracelet® Pro Series #1 is finally here. Before I get into the details, I have to thanks Lens Rentals for making this whole thing possible. Without them I wouldn’t have any of the models needed in order to make these guys.  I don’t actually own over 25k in lenses. But I do own the bracelets! You should too… ;)

Order your Lens Bracelet® at www.lensbracelet.com

The Lens Bracelet® Pro Series #1 is made up of 10 different designs, more intricate and a bit thicker than before. I tried my hardest to break one of these things, and I couldn’t. So either I am weak as crap, or they are strong as ever. Lets go with the latter.

Canon’s New XF305 & XF300 Camcorders

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., April 7, 2010 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announces the Canon XF305 and XF300 Professional Camcorders. Both new models employ an MPEG-2 4:2:2 50Mbps codec – Canon XF Codec – for capturing and recording native 1920 x 1080 video onto affordable, universally available Compact Flash (CF) cards. Uniting video, audio and metadata into a single file, the Canon XF305 and XF300 use an MXF (Material eXchange Format) File Wrapper, a widely supported open source format, to maximize compatibility with existing industry infrastructure and non-linear editing (NLE)systems. Priced under $8,000 per model, the Canon XF305 and XF300 are engineered for multiple production applications including broadcast news, documentary and independent filmmaking and event videography. Canon will be demonstrating a variety of professional applications for the Canon XF305 and XF300 at the Company’s booth# C4325 at the 2010 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The Canon XF305 and XF300 Professional Camcorders include a Genuine Canon 18x HD L-series lens providing documentary filmmakers and news camera operators with the focal-range versatility required in the field. Designed with input from professional users, each model includes three Canon developed and designed native 1920 x 1080 CMOS image sensors, and the new Canon XF Codec for extreme color detail required for accurate chroma-keying, color-grading and compositing for digital filmmaking. For finer transitions in tone and color, 4:2:2 color sampling offers twice the color resolution of HDV and other 4:2:0 formats. In addition, Canon’s XF305 model features industry- standard HD-SDI output, genlock, and SMPTE time code (in/out) terminals for multi-camera or 3-D productions.
