GET YOUR DISTANCE - GET YOUR IMAGE+ FOCUS ASSISTING TOOL
THE FIRST REAL MEASUREMENT TOOL YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR
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
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.
