Cinematography Electronics /i Lens Display Box
Intelligent Lens Display. Connects to Cooke S4/i lenses and Cine Tape Measure for electronic display of important lens data.
Cooke Optics has introduced an /i Lens Display box tailored to Cinematography Electronics’ new Cinetape 2.
The /i Lens Display box reads critical metadata information from /i technology-equipped lenses and displays the combined data on a multicolored bar-graph display for a quick depth-of-field reference.
“The /i Lens Display combines the metadata from the lens with information from the Cinetape 2 and displays it in a way that is more user friendly for camera people and for those that just don’t want to mess with all the individual metadata details,” says Cinematography Electronics’ Larry Barton.
“We also have a bar graph that displays whether what they have in focus is right in the middle,
at the far end or at the near end of the depth of field.”
“Cinematography Electronics was the first company outside Cooke that worked with /i technology,
and we are delighted that it is still helping push the boundaries,” says Les Zellan, chairman of Cooke Optics. “Focusing is becoming increasingly critical as more and more people seek to apply ‘the Cooke Look’ to full-frame work, and this is exactly the sort of tool that was behind the creation of /i technology in the first place.”
The /i Lens Display Unit with the Cooke S4/i "intelligent" lenses can display focusing distance, aperture, depth of field, hyper focal distance, serial number, owner data, lens type and focal length in both meters and feet, and for zoom lenses, the zoom position.
The /i Lens Display Unit offers you at-a-glance graphic depiction of depth-of-field, lens focus and -- in conjunction with Cinematography Electronics Cine Tape Measure -- the ability to see the subject's actual focus distance. The control jog wheel (lower right of photo) allows you to display different information in the top window, such as: hyper focal length, subject distance and focus marks. In addition, you can also display the entrance pupil position and angle-of-view, information that could save you hours of prep time before a motion control shoot.
Now you will be able to see the actor in front of you and the focus setting on the lens beside you without turning your head or even having to move your eyes too much.
