ScriptBoy Time Code Clipboard
The Scriptboy is the ideal production assistant's assistant. It provides a large, clear readout of timecode from the camera at distances of up to 100 metres, without cables - and without having to ask the cameraman "what's the code?" A small battery-powered transmitter is attached to the camera and fed with LTC timecode in EBU or SMPTE, dropframe or non-dropframe format. This is transmitted to the Scriptboy clipboard which automatically detects the format and decodes the signal for display. The display reading can be frozen so that accurate timecode can be recorded on continuity notes or script.

The Clockit, called "Lockit" by many, is a small, highly accurate portable timecode and colour videosync and wordclock generator. Audio and video machines such as DAT recorders, and Betacams can be genlocked to the Clockit Box, thus giving a very low drift between equipment working together. Typically, the drift will be less than 1 frame per day, without connecting cables or radio links. The Clockit can be jamsynced with external timecode, or set with Aaton ASCII code. The Clockit is especially useful in multicamera Betacam shoots, where a Clockit on each camera and one on the audio recorder will reduce drift between machines to under one frame a day.
Ambient ACL-203 Clockit Box - Timecode Generator
The Ambient ACL 203 Tri-Level Sync Lockit Set is a time code device designed for use with HDV cameras. It supports a variety of HD video formats, as well as sample-rate-based synching for audio recorders in world clock and black audio up to 192KHz. The unit features (3) rotary encoders that control function blocks, sync format, sync frequency, and time-code frame rate. These controls allow for simple dialing even with exotic variants of pull-up/pull-down or cross jam modes.
Ambient ACC-501 Controller, Clockit Master Clock System
The Ambient Controller is an extremely accurate portable master clock and timecode generator/reader. It can can be used to jam, read, identify, and compare all timecodes. All framerates are supported and the frame rate can be changed without losing time of day, enabling a camera running at 24 frames, and a recorder running at 25 or 30 frames to be jamsynced.
The Controller can also be used to check and calibrate the crystal oscillators of the Ambient range of time code products in the studio or field, giving unsurpassed accuracy. Its internal crystal oscillator can be calibrated from four different external sources: external timecode, another Ambient unit, GPS satellite, or DCF radio clock.

Metabones Canon EF Lens to Sony NEX Camera Speed Booster
■Canon EF Lens to Sony NEX Adapter
■Increases Maximum Aperture 1 Stop
■Increases Angle of View by 0.71x
The Canon EF Lens to Sony NEX Camera Speed Booster from Metabones allows Canon EF lenses to be mounted to Sony E-Mount APS-C format cameras, increasing the angle of view and the maximum aperture of the lens by 1 f-stop. This photo accessory also comes with a detachable tripod foot that is compatible with Arca Swiss, Markins, and Photo Clam ball heads.
The Speed Booster condenses light from the lens and projects it onto the APS-C sensor without vignetting; this allows the sensor to capture all of the lens' transmitted light and effectively produce full-frame coverage on non-full-frame sensors. A corresponding increase in the maximum aperture of 1 stop makes the lens more effective in low-light situations and able to create a shallow depth of field.
Metabones' Speed Boosters are made of machined brass, finished in satin black, the camera-body, and chromium-plated on both mounts to ensure smooth mounting and reliability.
These speed boosters are only fully compatible with mirrorless cameras housing APS-C or smaller image sensors. They will physically fit the Sony A7/A7R full frame mirrorless cameras but the camera must be set in Crop Mode to fully support the speed booster's functions.

Preston FIZ Wireless 3 Channel Focus/Iris/Zoom Unit
PRESTON FIZ3 LENS CONTROL MDR-2 SYSTEM FEATURES
The FI+Z system controls the complete array of both lens and camera functions. The system is modular, giving the user a wide range of choices from a basic cable connected system to a full wireless microwave system. The System consists of the Hand Unit, Motor Driver, Digital Motors, optional Microwave Link, cables and motor mounting bracket.
The heart of the system is the Hand Unit. Its robust construction, ergonomic design and quick set-up have all contributed to its position as the "industry standard". It's carefully machined exterior matches the phenomenal precision offered by its advanced digital architecture. The unit provides 16 bits of position resolution - 1 part in 64,000 - for incredible smoothness. A bright bargraph display shows the position of the zoom lens. A "Snorkel Mode" enables electronic Pan and Horizon control of Snorkel lenses.
The zoom function is implemented by a Micro Force control. It can be directly connected to the Hand Unit using a bracket or operatedremotely using a cable. The camera may be started either from the Micro Force or from the Hand Unit.
A unique scale adjustment system makes set-up extremely quick. Any portion of the lens focus, iris, or zoom range may be expanded tothe full-scale range of the corresponding control knob with the touch of a switch. In the case of zoom, electronic limit stops can be set. An optional Remote Iris Box provides a separate control for the Iris function. It is automatically enabled when plugged intothe Iris accessory connector on the Hand Unit.
The Motor Driver MDR2 (shown below with the microwave transceiver) interfaces the FIZ Hand Unit with the DM-1, DM-2, and DM-3 digital motors. It provides 3 channels of motor drive, the camera run function for film cameras and the VTR function for video cameras. In addition, it allows wireless control of both the camera frame rate and shutter angle when used in conjunction with the F/X box.
The unit automatically calibrates the motors to the mechanical end limits of the lens. Each of the three channels has a separate three level torque limit selected by a switch.
The power requirements of the MDR2 are 24 - 30 VDC at .15A quiescent, 3A peak (all 3 motors stalled. When fitted with the Microwave transceiver, the operating voltage range is extended from 12 - 30 VDC input.
Metabones Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera
The T Smart Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera from Metabones allows a Canon EF or EF-S mount lens to be mounted onto a Sony E-mount camera. While doing so, the adapter is designed to support electronic communication between an attached camera and lens. If the lens includes autofocus, image stabilization, as well as camera-controlled aperture functions, this adapter is intended to allow those features to be used. If an attached lens is also capable of generating EXIF metadata when used with a directly compatible camera, the T Smart Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera is designed to allow that information to be saved along with image files generated with a combination of the lens, a Sony E-mount camera, and the adapter.
By enabling camera-controlled aperture functions for a Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens when used with a Sony E-mount camera, program, shutter-priority, aperture-priority, as well as manual modes can be set and used through the camera. Power for these functions is transferred from the camera to the lens, and the T Smart Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera is designed to accomplish this in an energy-efficient manner. When manual focusing is preferred with a compatible electronic lens, an integrated switch can be depressed which opens the lens's aperture diaphragm to it largest setting. The resulting shallow depth-of-field can then be used to help ensure focus accuracy.
When an image is taken with the T Smart Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera, a matte black internal coating minimizes the potential for reflections within the adapter barrel, which could otherwise result in unwanted glare within the image. The adapter barrel also features a wide internal diameter to support the movements of compatible tilt-shift lenses.
The T Smart Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera is constructed from aluminum alloy for durability while minimizing weight. Its mounting rings are made with brass to further prevent wear-and-tear, and a detachable tripod foot is included that features 3/8" threads as well as compatibility with Arca-Swiss tripod heads.
While Canon EF-S or third-party APS-C EF-mount lenses may be used with the T Smart Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera, vignetting may occur when such lenses are combined with this adapter and a Sony E-mount camera with an APS-C sized sensor. Canon EF-S and third-party APS-C EF lenses are designed to project an image onto sensors measuring 22.3 x 14.9mm, while Sony E-Mount APS-C cameras feature sensors that measure 23.5 x 15.6mm.
The T Smart Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera can be used to connect Canon EF or third-party "full-frame" EF-mount lenses to a Sony E-mount camera with a "full-frame" sensor without vignetting. It may be used to adapt Canon EF-S or third-party APS-C EF-mount lenses to a "full-frame" Sony E-mount camera as well. However, Sony E-mount cameras with a "full-frame" sensor must be set to "crop mode" when combined with this adapter and Canon EF-S or third-party APS-C EF-mount lenses to avoid generating images with vignetting.
