Review from Ulrich Mors, Sony Independent Certified Expert (ICE)

[fulltext] =>

We know every user has his own reason to love working with our products. That’s why we highly appreciate feedback and reviews from our (professional) users in the field.

Below you'll find an independent and extensive review made by Ulrich Mors, a professional cameraman and broadcast/film camera trainer for companies, universities and freelance professionals, from Germany. He is also a Sony Independent Certified Expert (ICE).

‘If a cameraman asks me today what to buy next, I would advise him not to buy the next cool LED light, but to invest into one viewfinder to be used on all cameras he is shooting with! If you once know the menus of the Alphatron, if you once know its colors and focussing/exposure features, you will profit from that on every shoot, with every camera!’ says Ulrich Mors.

This video is an illustrated report of Ulrich’s opinion on both the Sony PXW-FS7 viewfinder and our EVF-035W-3G viewfinder. It is spoken in German, however English subtitles have been added.

 

The whitepaper is available in both German and English. It just take a few minutes to read, and it will give you a clear overview of pros and cons of both products.

    [title] => New PAGlink 150Wh Batteries
    [alias] => new-paglink-150wh-batteries
    [introtext] => 

PAG launched its new PL150 Series of PAGlink Intelligent Linking Batteries at NAB in April 2016.

[fulltext] =>

The new Li-Ion batteries offer an increased capacity of 150Wh - 50% more than PL96 batteries - with no increase in size. PAG has used the latest high-capacity Li-Ion cells to create a 150Wh battery that is housed in the same case as the established 96Wh models, ensuring that PL150 batteries have the highest energy density of any Li-Ion battery of equivalent capacity brought to market.

The series comprises two V-Mount options: the PL150e features PAG’s now familiar 5- light Run-Time & Capacity indicator, while the PL150T incorporates the longestablished numeric Run-Time & Capacity display. These models will ship in Q3 of 2016, and will be followed by a Gold Mount version that features a numeric display and a high current-draw capability.

Every functional benefit of the PAGlink battery system is maintained with the new PL150 Series. Batteries can be linked to multiply capacity, from 150Wh to 300Wh with just two batteries, in this case. The current draw capability increases from 8A to 12A when V-Mount batteries are linked (from 10A to 12A for the Gold Mount option).

The new 150Wh batteries are ideal for applications where all-day power is required from fewer batteries, and when changing a battery or powering-down the camera is not an option. Alternatively, hot-swapping provides continuous power. The 150Wh batteries can be linked with the 96Wh versions for charge or discharge. Both are managed safely by the PAGlink intelligent technology. Batteries can be charged using any reputable Li-Ion charger. Reliability, durability and the highest safety standard are integral to the battery design and consistent across PAG’s whole range of Li-Ion batteries.

In keeping with the latest PAG-developed technology, the 150 batteries communicate automatically with multiple camera data systems and display remaining capacity in the camera viewfinder/LCD.

The PL150 Series has been tested by an independent authority to UN standards, in compliance with air transport safety regulations. A capacity above 100Wh but below 160Wh means that two units can per person be carried in cabin luggage, when you fly.

    [introtext] => 

PAG will feature its new L90 Slim battery, which will be shipping to coincide with NAB.

[fulltext] =>

The global provider of broadcast camera power will also debut new 4-position chargers, available in Gold Mount and V-Mount formats.

The PAG L90 Slim offers a low-profile form factor and lightweight construction, which make it ideal for use with small cameras, such as the ARRI Alexa Mini, especially when mounted to gimbals or drones.

The battery measures 140 x 85 x 35mm (5.51” x 3.34” x 1.37”), weighs 0.5kg (1.1lbs), and has a capacity of 90Wh; giving it the greatest energy density of any V-Mount Li-Ion battery brought to market. It features the latest high-current, high-capacity Li-Ion cells which provide a continuous current-draw of 10A, making it ideal for power-hungry applications.

Not only has the battery been designed to withstand the vibration associated with multirotor aerial platforms, it also incorporates the industry’s first orientation-sensing numeric Run-Time & Capacity Display. The display adjusts automatically, according to the battery’s orientation, to ensure legibility. The PAG L90 Slim is an intelligent battery that manages its own charge and discharge safely. It can be charged using any reputable V-Mount Li-Ion charger.

Also at NAB for the first time are PAG’s new 4-position Li-Ion chargers, designed to help broadcast organizations and camera rental companies manage a large inventory of PAGlink batteries. Linked battery charging is unique to the PAGlink system and was developed by PAG. Each channel of these new PAG chargers allows up to 8 linked batteries to be charged simultaneously; up to 32 batteries can be charged without user intervention. This greatly reduces the number of chargers required, cutting costs dramatically. Batteries can be left safely and conveniently on the charger overnight until needed. PAG PL16+ 4-position chargers are available in Gold Mount and V-Mount formats.

Visit PAG at NAB on booth #C5046 or on the Alphatron booth #C6046.

    [title] => 3 Year Guarantee for PAGlink Batteries
    [alias] => 3-year-guarantee-for-paglink-batteries
    [introtext] => 

PAG has increased the guarantee on its PAGlink batteries from 2 years to 3 years.

[fulltext] =>

The company introduced its intelligent linking batteries in September 2011. PAGlink batteries continue to provide excellent service to customers well beyond the original guarantee period and for this reason PAG has decided to increase the product guarantee to 3 years. The improved guarantee applies to all PAGlink batteries, V-Mount and Gold Mount versions, sold after 1st January 2016.

PAG Sales Director Nigel Gardiner says, “As well as all the other benefits, when you power equipment from linked batteries you are sharing the load, which contributes to a longer overall battery life.

Two low cost monitors with wide function range and many accessories included

[fulltext] =>

Alphatron Broadcast Aspectra introduces two new models on-camera monitors of the AVtec brand, the XHD070 and XHD070Pro. Both models are lightweight, ultra-thin HD 7” HDMI monitors with IPS LCD high quality display. With brightness levels of 400 cd/m2, a 800:1 contrast ratio and 178° vertical and horizontal viewing angles, they are a great tool for photographers and videographers.

‘These field-monitors enable you to focus clearly on your shots and eliminate the guesswork from framing. They offer a wide range of functions and many accessories are included in the package at a tempting price. This makes both models a good addition to the standard gear of (semi-)professional DSLR and camcorder users’, says Stefan Noordermeer, International Sales Manager at Alphatron Broadcast.

The XHD070Pro has over a dozen features to adjust the image, focus, exposure etc. You can assign often-used menu functions to one of the four function buttons on the front panel for quick and easy access. The monitor also features an on-screen multilingual menu where you can adjust brightness, contrast, hue, saturation etc., to fine-tune your display. The default aspect ratio is 16:9 but you can easily switch to 4:3, Panorama or Automatic in the menu. For audio monitoring, it features a built-in speaker on the rear and a headphone output on the front panel.

The difference between the XHD070Pro and XHD070 is the number of features that is added to the Pro version, being the Histogram, False colors and Exposure. These features make it just a little bit easier to get the perfect picture when you use your monitor on a more frequent basis. This makes the XHD070 a great tool for the average user who wants to maximize the results with a minimum of cost and effort. For a more intensive user we recommend the XHD070Pro to make the daily activities more efficient.

    [alias] => tristar-4-the-virtually-indestructible-on-camera-led-light
    [introtext] => 

We've developed a new bi-color light with High-Brightness SMD LED technology.

[fulltext] =>

Alphatron Broadcast, known for its high quality camera accessories such as the EVF-035W-3G View Finder, developed a compact, ultra-bright and extremely robust on-camera LED light.

‘We really wanted to create a robust and bright light using the technology with surface mounted LED diodes (SMD technology). The name TRISTAR is inspired by the new technique where we use three light sources per diode instead of the usual one. This creates an enormous light output - three times the output of something using the same number of LED’s - for such a compact and lightweight light’, says René van der Reiden, International Sales Manager at Alphatron Broadcast.

’We have done various demonstrations at which we throw the light firmly onto the ground and it keeps on working! We feel this product would also be a great asset in schools and/or rental companies where some rough handling of products is quite common.’

The TRISTAR 4 has been tested by color science expert Alan Roberts (BBC, Guild of TV Cameramen) and the TLC index is established at 86. This is an amazing rating for a light at this price level. (See link for results). The light runs on a Sony NP-F, Sony BP-U or Canon LP-E6 battery or via a D-Tap cable into the camera and battery (cable is supplied in the package as well as a ball head and the metal barn doors with diffusion filter).

Key features

  • 96 long life High-Brightness SMD LED’s
  • Robust, lightweight and compact design
  • 100-10% dimming without noticeable color shift
  • Smooth color balance from Tungsten to Daylight, or anywhere in between
  • Easily mounts on cameras, stands or handheld

    [introtext] => 

run&gunBags allow you to pack your camera and gear, completely assembled, ready for action!

[fulltext] =>

The run&gunBag collection exists of black Cordura® carrying bags in three different sizes, offering a practical solution for camcorders and handheld, ENG style cameras and even professional cinema cameras. “Looking at the world around us, digitization, easy and quick access to information and media, and the need for creative solutions are becoming more and more important. This made us think about developing a series of camera bags that helps facilitate easy access and flexibility” says René van der Reiden, International Sales Manager at Alphatron Broadcast.

With this range we offer great protection, flexibility during transport due to the lightweight design, and easy access to a fully assembled camera, ready to start shooting on the go. The bags are made of 1000 denier black Cordura® fabric and have double (blue) YKK® zippers that open the top flap in one easy pull. Stow away your camera, accessories, batteries, chargers, cables and tools in this easy to use carrying bag.

The smallest bag, run&gunBag Medium with an interior length of 54cm / 21.3 inches, is perfect for camcorders and handheld cameras such as the Sony PXW-X70, PXW-X200, PXW-X180, Canon XA25, XF200/205, XF300/305, Panasonic AJ-PX270, AG-HPX250/255, JVC GY-HM170/200 and Blackmagic Cinema/Production cameras.

The run&gunBag Large is designed for cameras up to 60cm / 23.6 inches in length, such as the Sony PXW-Z100, PXW-X200, Canon EOS C100 Mark II, EOS C300/C500, Panasonic AJ-PX270, HC-X1000, AG-HPX250/255, JVC GY-HM850/890, AJA CION, RED EPIC and Blackmagic URSA cameras.

The run&gunBag XL offers the possibility to safely transport your professional (cinema) camera, e.g. Sony PMW-F5/F55, PXW-FS7, PMW-300, PXW-X500, PDW-680, Panasonic AG-HPX610, AJ-PX800, VariCam, ARRI AMIRA, AJA CION and Blackmagic URSA. camrade productrange runandgunbags01

 

The soft-padded interior includes removable dividers which make it easy to arrange the main compartment into sections to fit custom requirements. Carry the bag with the included comfortable padded shoulder strap, the soft handles, or transport it safely on a trolley. A cinch strap in the main compartment keeps the camera secured during transportation. The bottom of the bag is equipped with a protective armored plate, covered by a waterproof non-slip cover. Together with the reinforced inserts this provides a rigid lightweight frame that safeguards your camera equipment in any situation.

  • Suited for a wide range of assembled professional camcorders and cameras
  • Water-resistant 1000 denier black Cordura® exterior
  • Reinforced inlays and soft padded interior for maximum protection

This year, we are welcoming Andra Motion Focus into our family of distribution products. The Motion Focus system is a new tool that will expand your creative and practical horizons. It unlocks never seen before creative possibilities to heighten tension, direct attention, and maximize dramatic impact. Whether the object, the camera or both are moving, Andra Motion Focus keeps your subject in focus. ANDRA is exhibiting and demonstrating on our booth.

We will be showcasing our new camRade products; rain covers for the latest camera types, such as the Blackmagic URSA, Blackmagic Studio, AJA CION and ARRI AMIRA. A live water experiment at the center of our booth will proof the water-resistance of our wetSuits.

Special attention goes to our brand new series of camRade =run&gunBags, created for pick-up-and-shoot situations and our selection of black camRade camBags. You are more than welcome to try if your camera fits our bags.
On top of that, you will find our camera accessories; our popular Alphatron EVF-035W-3G which has a new firmware update: the Anamorphic de-squeeze mode, the Alphatron Universal Rig, Support plates, Mattebox and Follow Focus series.
