Cine Tape Measure

Cine Tape Measure

Measuring distance just became easier with the Cinematography Electronics CINE TAPE MEASURE System. This versatile ultrasonic system continuously calculates the distance between a subject and the camera's film-plane. By continuously measuring distance during a shot, small or subtle subject movements are no longer a problem. With non-stop measurements, focusing a camera lens is simplified which saves time, avoids retakes and reduces production costs.

The main components of our system are the CINE TAPE MEASURE CONTROL and the SENSOR ASSEMBLY. The control displays accurate distance measurements from the constant stream of data that is received by the sensors.

CINE TAPE MEASURE System is a small, rugged, lightweight, and quiet ultrasonic range finder. It is compatible with all lenses, film cameras and video cameras. In addition, it is easy to set up and use, making it the first choice of professional filmmakers.

Cine Tape Measure Control

The stylish Cinematography Electronics CINE TAPE MEASURE CONTROL is the brain of the system. It continuously computes the distance between the camera's film plane and the subject. A simple one-time Film-Plane offset adjustment programs the relationship of the film plane to the sensor position. When the control detects a subject, the green Sense LED glows and the calculated distance is shown on the LED display in either feet-inches or meters-centimeters. Adjustable brightness levels for the large red LED display offers comfortable viewing under different lighting conditions. The digital Sensitivity adjustment feature fine-tunes the system range, which is also helpful with different subject reflectivity. The Close Focus feature sets the minimum sense distance. Objects within this area are disregarded. All of the functions are set and stored digitally, which safeguards against accidental changes and provides accurate repeatability between units.

Sensor Assembly

The innovative Cinematography Electronics SENSOR ASSEMBLY consists of two small cone-shaped "horns," a miniature pan tilt mechanism, a mounting stud, and an electrical connector. The horns send and receive ultrasonic signals that are used to calculate the distance measurement. Mounting the SENSOR ASSEMBLY onto a camera package is simple with the combo stud. With its pan and tilt adjust/lock knobs, aiming the horns towards the subject is quick and straightforward. The SENSOR ASSEMBLY interfaces to the control via a short detachable Sensor Cable. A spring-loaded holder permits laser pens to be attached parallel to the sensors, providing a visual reference during calibration.

Glidetrack HD, 1 meter (DISCONTINUED)

Glidetrack HD, 1 meter (DISCONTINUED)

The Glidetrack HD has been designed and tailor made for film-makers looking for heavy duty performance. A step above the SD model, the HD provides an even more rigid and stable foundation in order to cater for heavier camera/camcorder setups. The rail is of a heavier duty extrusion, which makes the HD perfect for mid size rigs that may include external monitors, matte boxes or support systems.

The Glidetrack HD is based on a heavy-duty 16mm rail with a 60mm wide slider car, and with wider feet than the SD to make it even more stable when used with depth of field adapters and camera setups featuring longer lenses.

At the heart of the Glidetrack system lies an industrial grade rail and bearing system. The rail is made of hard anodized aluminum and the bearings themselves are of industrial grade self lubricating plastic that makes them extremely insensitive to dirt and dust ingress and corrosion resistant, which cannot be said of traditional bearing systems. The bearings are extremely hard wearing and are rated to run for many thousands of kilometers of travel before needing replaced. Your elbow will wear out before they do!

Product Features
- Use it with a single or double-tripod set-up, or standalone on its custom-made scratch-free feet.
- The carriage can be locked in position using the small adjuster on the side of the carriage.
- Set-up is a matter of seconds, and then you're ready to shoot professional grade video.
- Crane type moves. By mounting your Glidetrack at one end, you can do pseudo crane moves on the fly.
- Inclined dolly moves, By using two tripod heads, you can do your Glide at an angle. Try that with a traditional dolly!

The Glidetrack SD is based on a 10mm rail with a 40mm wide slider car. It is light and strong capable of handling kit up to 4kg. The rail is made of hard anodized aluminum and the bearings themselves are of industrial grade self lubricating plastic that makes them extremely insensitive to dirt and dust ingress and corrosion resistant, which cannot be said of traditional bearing systems. The bearings are extremely hard wearing and are rated to run for many thousands of kilometers of travel before needing replaced. Your elbow will wear out before they do!

Manfrotto 595B "Fig Rig" Camera Stabilizer

Manfrotto 595B "Fig Rig" Camera Stabilizer

After years of using the Fig Rig on his award-winning films, Mike Figgis brought his idea to Manfrotto. An idea that is non-traditional in design, but purely simple and effective. The only modular system in the world to smoothly support the DV camera and act as a frame to mount all the accessories including zoom controllers, mics, mixers, lights, monitors, arms... A circular frame with a crossbar to mount most mini DV cameras, the Fig Rig becomes part of the body to produce smooth, steady traveling shots. It is this very fact which is the secret to the Fig Rig. As the operator walks, his/her muscles and tendons absorb all the shocks, transferring only fluid movements to the camera. As there are no straps or harnesses attached to the Fig Rig, and quick and wide movements can be made within the same shot from ground-level to overhead, in one smooth movement. The camera, accessories and operator become one, allowing you to film scenes quickly and unobtrusively. With the Fig Rig your creativity is virtually limitless.

Spider Pod Camera / Operator Riser

Spider Pod Camera / Operator Riser

The Spider Pod, a portable tripod riser and standing platform, elevates a camera tripod and operator two feet. It is designed for professional videographers and filmmakers, and news crews who need to raise their camera's viewpoint, yet do it with speed and stability. The Spider Pod allows a camera operator to shoot above crowds and capture images that are stable and unobstructed.

Large staging risers are often used as camera platforms. However, as an operator shifts footing, the camera and tripod may shake producing an unstable video image. When multiple shooters are on these shaky staging risers or camera are zoomed in, the problem is magnified. The Spider Pod features a separate tripod riser and standing platform eliminating camera shake caused by the camera operator.

Easyrig Vario 5 with Gimbal Rig Vest and Extended Arm

The Easyrig Vario 5 with Gimbal Rig Vest and 9" Extended Arm is a body-worn support system that is adjustable to support camera rigs weighing 11 to 38 lb.
