Insta360 Pro2 Camera
Insta360 Pro 2 Camera — Booth 2404
Why shoot 8K if your viewers are on a headset or smartphone that can only render 4K? Insta360’s new CrystalView player solves this problem and lets viewers watch 8K 360° video in full quality on Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Go, and mainstream iOS and Android phones.
The ultimate tool for professional VR filmmaking. Using six lenses, the Pro 2 covers every angle, and captures 2x 8K videos simultaneously. Together, they create immersive, life-like experiences. 60 & 120 fps modes keep action smooth. New in-camera HDR means that lighting stays natural, even when conditions vary in every direction.
Canon EOS R
Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera — Booth 2010
Meet Canon’s new addition to the EOS System, the EOS R camera. It packs a range of advanced features from a full-frame, 30.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor that captures gorgeous images, to a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system for fast and accurate autofocus, to impressive 4K video recording capabilities. All this comes in a compact and intuitive design that’s compatible with RF, EF and EF-S lenses, opening a world of creative possibilities.
Nikon Z6 and Z7
Nikon Z7 & Z6 Mirrorless Cameras — Booth 2419
Combining the advantages of a lightweight mirrorless design, a revolutionary new full-frame lens mount and matched lenses, a Nikon designed 45.7MP image sensor and seamless integration with Nikon’s DSLR system — including the NIKKOR lenses you love — the Z 7 is a camera unlike any before it. And yet, it’s unmistakably a Nikon. This is mirrorless reinvented.
The Z 6 is perhaps the most adaptable camera Nikon has ever created. It’s at the sweet spot of speed, resolution and low-light performance. All combined with the advantages of a lightweight mirrorless design, a revolutionary new full-frame lens mount with matched lenses and seamless integration with Nikon’s DSLR system — including the F-Mount NIKKOR lenses you love. This is mirrorless versatility as only Nikon could create.
Fujifilm X-T3 Mirrorless Camera — Booth 1204
The FUJIFILM X-T3 features a newly-developed back-illuminated “X-Trans CMOS 4” sensor, the fourth generation to feature in the X Series. Boasting a resolution of 26.1MP, the sensor uses a unique colour filter array, synonymous to X-Trans CMOS sensors, to control moiré and false colour without the use of an optical low-pass filter. Its back-illuminated structure enhances image quality while maintaining a high S/N ratio. Furthermore, ISO160, previously available only as extended ISO, is now part of the normal ISO range, allowing you to achieve incredibly clean, noise free images.
MOZA Air 2 with Sony FS5
MOZA Air 2 — Booth 1717
Empowered by the newly optimized high torque motors and the new generation FOC technology, MOZA Air 2 is capable of handling most DSLRs, mirrorless cameras and pocket cinema cameras, weighing up to 4.2 kg (9 lbs). This allows you the freedom to choose from a wider range of camera and lens combinations and accessories.
The Moza Air 2 includes a newly designed versatile and adaptable modular ecosystem to allow filmmakers to operate in whatever way is most productive for them.
This means you can use the MOZA Thumb Controller, iFOCUS, camera cage, camera backpack, dual handle to distribute control of gimbal pointing, FIZ and camera controls in whatever way makes sense for your shot.
Hive Lighting Hornet 200-C
Hive Lighting Hornet 200-C LED Studio Light — Booth 1813
Using only 150 Watts, the HORNET 200-C is equivalent to a 650–1000W incandescent and 2.5X brighter than the original Wasp 100-C. This is the brightest single point colour changing LED in the world. With an expanded LED array, we not only increased output, but created the widest colour gamut of any Hive light. This means more options, more control, and a fuller brighter light across the colour spectrum. All of this is packaged in a 9” long body, weighing only 2.6lbs.
