ALWAYS NEW LENS CONTROL TECHNIQUES

In 1988, I began to work with the development of control systems for film cameras and optics. During my work I was fortunate to work closely with camera operators and first ACs. With increasing experience, ongoing feedback and wishes of focus pullers, I noticed: it still needs to be different. Together, the basic principles of focusing were developed and two systems were produced, which allow what was previously impossible for the first time.

ALWAYS OUR VISION IN FOCUS

Next to lightning, focus is the essential storytelling tool for film. Focusing on film is an artistic, creative act. No algorithm can decide where the attention of the viewer should be directed at. Time and duration of focus pulls determines the drama of an image. Focus Pulling is story telling.

Especially in moving situations, focusing can be challenging.

We are here to help and improve the way focus pullers work on the film set. So that focus pullers can concentrate on their artistic work.

ALWAYS EVOLUTIONARY DISTANCE MEASUREMENT

Distances were always needed on the film set. To help focus pullers do their job, many tools were developed. All of them good. None of them yet as satisfying as our own eyes. Till qinematiq focus tools were developed.

TWO PRODUCTS - TWO WAYS OF DISTANCE MEASUREMENT

ONE GOAL

IMAGE+ measures as the human eye sees and so enables natural focus pulling.

It permanently offers all distance values to all objects visible in the picture. Whether moving or not.

SMART RANGER makes effortless distance measurement between subject and camera film plane. It simply consists of an anchor unit and a tag and works from 0.4m to 40m.

Place the tag and follow the distance. Use your LCS.
