SmallRig: SmallRig Cage for Panasonic S5 Camera 2983

https://www.smallrig.com/smallrig-cage-for-panasonic-s5-camera-2983.html

No sooner had Panasonic announced its amazing Lumix DC-S5 35mm sensor-equipped L-mount compact hybrid stills/video camera than SmallRig released details of its SmallRig Cage for Panasonic S5 Camera 2983, in preorder at a discount at time of writing.

I always recommend investing in SmallRig products when in preorder aka late development stage in order to take advantage of their preorder discounts not to forget their attractive non-discount pricing compared to other camera accessories makers.

The S5 cage can be purchased alone or in a package including one or more of the following: Monitor Mount with ARRI Mount 2903, HDMI Cable Clamp 1679, Arri Locating Handle 2165 and Wooden NATO Side Handle 2187.

For those of us who enjoy using cameras with vertical battery grips attached, no doubt SmallRig has a suitable cage in the works right now, perhaps soon to appear in the Co-design page.

Fujifilm USA Creates ‘Create Forever’ Free Storytelling Workshops and Video Tutorials Campaign in Collaboration with Muse Storytelling

This is the first time I have covered what is essentially a marketing campaign for a camera maker but  have done so because Fujifilm USA’s ‘Create Forever’ tutorial videos and free storytelling workshops offer more than mere marketing bumf about Fujifilm’s in-body image stabilization-equipped GFX 100 medium format hybrid stills and video camera.

In order to equip creators with all of the possible tools to tell authentic stories, Fujifilm partnered with Muse Storytelling to develop a series of tutorials that teaches viewers about the marquee elements of the Muse Storytelling Process that helped to tell the stories featured in the series.”

ALPA of Switzerland Announces ALPA XO Exoskeleton aka Cage for Fujifilm GFX 100 100-Megapixel Hybrid Medium Format Camera

Medium format digital camera and lens maker ALPA of Switzerland has been showing off prototypes of its ALPA XO Exoskeleton for the Fujifilm GFX 100 DSLR-style medium format digital hybrid camera and the exoskeleton aka camera cage has an uncanny resemblance to the range of cages and accessories designed and made by expatriate Italian-Australian cinematographer/director Dante Cecchin for his LockCircle brand in northern Italy.

alpa_xo_exoskeleton_fujifilmgfx100_07_1024px
ALPA of Switzerland XO Exoskeleton for Fujifilm GFX 100 medium format digital camera with ALPA Switar 80mm cinema prime lens.

ALPA has long had a reputation for producing high-priced, well-designed and beautifully-manufactured cameras and lenses and has been expanding into the cinema space with its PLATON range and now the coming new XO range for the GFX 100.

Given the reputed high quality and precision of Mr Cecchin’s cinema camera accessories and his location just below the Swiss/Italian border, a collaboration between the two companies seems like a wise decision.

Cinematographer/Director Paul Leeming Shoots Fujifilm X-T3 and X-Pro2 Footage for Custom Leeming LUT Pro in Our Home Studio

_DSF0072_aurorahdr2019_luminar2018_1920px
Australian cinematographer/director Paul Leeming with his Blackmagic Design Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, 8Sinn cage and Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art zoom lens attached with Metabones Speed Booster EF-to-MFT adapter.

Australian cinematographer cum director cum LUTmaker Paul Leeming took advantage of a break away from the Australian bushfires, torrential rains and floods to drop by our Sydney home studio and shoot some footage on our Fujifilm X-Pro2 and a loaner Fujifilm X-T3, courtesy of Fujifilm Australia.

Mr Leeming was on his annual Australian jaunt after completing photography for a feature film set in Osaka, to eventually return to his domicile in the Netherlands where he will get back to working on Leeming LUT Pro custom look-up tables for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Panasonic cameras including the GH5 and GH5S, amongst others.

He shot the feature on two fundamentally different cameras, Panasonic’s Lumix DC-GH5S and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, and Leeming LUT Pro will play a crucial role in ensuring easy editing and colour grading of HLG and raw video footage.

According to Mr Leeming:

Leeming LUT Pro™ is the world’s first unified, corrective Look Up Table ( LUT ) system for supported cameras, designed to maximise dynamic range, fix skin tones, remove unwanted colour casts and provide an accurate Rec709 starting point for further creative colour grading.

Multi-camera shoots are now much easier, because you are starting with a common, colour-matched baseline, meaning much less time trying to match cameras in post before starting your creative grading.

Once all your cameras have been corrected, you can optionally use the specially matched Leeming LUT Pro Quickies™ for a one-touch creative grade designed to work seamlessly with the common baseline of Leeming LUT Pro™ corrected footage.

Save hours of frustration and give your footage the best possible quality right out the gate. It’s as easy as Shoot – Apply Leeming LUT Pro™ – Done!

Leeming LUT Pro custom LUTs coming for Fujifilm X-Pro2 and X-T3

Mr Leeming shot colour chart footage using the ProNeg Standard film simulation on the Fujifilm X-Pro2 camera, and in the Eterna, F-log and HLG picture profiles on the X-T3.

His preferred profile when shooting with Panasonic cameras is HLG and it is likely that Fujifilm’s HLG will prove to have the same benefits when shooting for high dynamic range aka HDR and standard dynamic range aka SDR output.

I recently shot some HLG footage on the X-T3 in available darkness and the results were impressive to say the least.

Always carry a grey card for white balancing video

Mr Leeming showed me this Struan Grey paint sample card made by Taubmans and told me it is the most accurate grey card for white balancing that he has found available for free.

I have been guilty of forgetting to carry a grey card when out with my camera each day due to the ones I have being a little too large for my daily carry camera bag, so it is good to know there are smaller and cheaper – free! – alternatives available at your local hardware store so long as it stocks Taubmans paint.

Paul Leeming Shooting Footage for Leeming LUT Pro for Fujifilm X-T3 and X-Pro2

Mr Leeming travelled light, carrying a stripped-down Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K rig in this Think Tank Photo backpack.
This stripped-down rig for the BMPCC 4K includes the 8Sinn full cage and once of Mr Leeming’s favourite lenses, the legendary Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM  Art lens for Canon EF-mount. He has preferred 8Sinn cages and accessories since buying one for his Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5. He also relies on Xume filter adapters and Formatt Hitech Firecrest Ultra fixed neutral density filters.

Tilta Announces “Tactical Assault Armor” Professional Camera Cage System for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

In an intriguing departure from the more customary minimalist approach to creating cages for hybrid and cinema cameras, Tilta has announced a complete professional cage and accessories system for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and it looks amazing. 

The system appears to be named BMPCC 4K Tactical Assault Armor, thus taking on a rather unfortunate military note, but it impresses with the attention to detail Tilta’s design and engineering team has paid to the BMPCC 4K’s accessories needs for use in demanding productions. 

tilta_cage_bmpcc4k_03_1024px_60pc
Tilta cage system for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

Blackmagic Design’s latest pocket camera is anything but a fit-in-the-pocket cinema camera, and from feedback from early pre-order customers it appears to be as capable of run-and-gun documentary work as it is of feature-style documentary or narrative moviemaking.

Tilta’s BMPCC 4K cage design philosophy appears based on making the cost of entry low with the half cage priced at US$69.00, full cage at US$99 with the top handle priced at US$79.00, making the most basic cage combo US$148.00 with an extra US$30.00 for full cage instead of half cage.

Other products in the system tackle BMPCC 4K weak points such as cabling, external SSDs, sun-shading and external power as well as the need for a fast and easy focus-pulling solution for solo operators.

At such a low price for entry into the system, independent documentary moviemakers are able to get a foot in then add to it as bigger productions demand.

Tilta BMPCC 4K Tactical Assault Armor Cage for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

So far Tilta has not revealed the BMPCC 4K Tactical Assault Armor cage system’s release date but interested potential customers are invited to sign up for updates.

I will be keeping an eye out for hands-on reviews of the system in all its forms.

One thing that appears to be missing from the system so far is provision for easily, safely attaching a tilting and swivelling monitor such as the recently-released  Atomos Ninja V but perhaps that solution is still in design stage and will be illustrated in use in a future version of the Tilta BMPCC 4K Tactical Assault Armor cage system web page.

SmallRig Has Two Fujifilm X-T3 Cages in Pre-Order, One for the Camera with Battery Grip and One Without. First 100 Orders Get 30% Off.

Camera accessories maker SmallRig is quick off the mark with not one but two camera cages for the Fujifilm X-T3 APS-C/Super 35 hybrid mirrorless camera to take advantage of the X-T3’s radically boosted video capabilities. 

My experience with a range of Fujifilm cameras indicates that almost all of them benefit at least from metal hand grips and more so from vertical battery grips for better, safer handholding and extra power. 

It is pleasing to see that SmallRig has acknowledged this by adding extra gripability to its cage for the X-T3 minus vertical battery grip. 

Both camera cages are currently available under SmallRig’s Pre-Order scheme at 30% off an already low regular price and the estimated shipping date is October 11, 2018, well-timed for the official release of X-T3 production models.

8Sinn is Poised to Ship Samsung Portable T5 SSD Holder for Its Blackmagic Cinema Camera 4K Cage

When cinematographer/director Paul Leeming of Leeming Lut Pro fame came by the ‘Untitled’ home office earlier this year, he brought his Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 rigged up with an 8Sinn cage and Scorpio top handle, Universal Rod & Metabones Support and one of his extensive collection of vintage manual focus prime lenses. 

I had a brief tryout of his 8Sinn gear and was impressed at its thoughtful design, manufacturing quality and excellent feel in the hands.

8Sinn’s design philosophy appears to be one of utility due to plenty of connection points in all the right places combined with ample wrap-around protection done in an ergonomic manner that bestows easy access to the camera’s buttons, dials, doors and other controls. 

Not an easy list of requirements to fill and now 8Sinn has applied that philosophy to its cage for Blackmagic Design’s Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and a nascent but growing collection of cage accessories, recently with its Monitor Holder Cold Shoes Mount and soon its holder for the Samsung Portable T5 SSD.

SmallRig Cage for Panasonic Lumix LX100 Premium Compact 4K Hybrid Camera Now in Pre-Order at 50% Off

Camera accessory maker SmallRig recently placed a camera cage for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 M43 4K hybrid digital camera  on pre-order status at a 50% discount for the first 100 orders, and it reminded me of what a remarkable little camera the LX100 appears to be even though it was released back in 2014 alongside the then ground-breaking Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4

smallrig_cage_lumix_lx100_01_1024px_80pc
SmallRig Cage for Panasonic Lumix LX100 2198 enhances this capable little premium compact Micro Four Thirds camera for discrete run-and-gun video.

The professional camera stores I was frequenting at the time did not stock the LX100 otherwise I may well have bought one had I the chance to see and try one out.

The LX100’s specifications are impressive for a 2014 release camera with some of the few disappointments being its lack of microphone and headphone ports for good quality audio recording, but that lack can be remedied by attaching a small audio recorder to the camera for double system sound that can easily be synched to video in Final Cut Pro X or Red Giant’s Shooter PluralEyes.

A successor to the LX100, presumably to be named the Panasonic Lumix LX200, with more contemporary specifications such as in-body image stabilization aka IBIS or at least improved optical image stabilization, ND filters and a 16 to 20 megapixel sensor, has long been rumored and I hope that the latest rumour, that it will be announced before the photokina trade show in September this year, is true as I have been in the market for a top-specced compact hybrid camera for quite some time.

The one obvious downside to compact cameras that fit into the palm of one’s hand as the LX100 seems to is their minimal gripability and lack of attachment points for accessories necessary for producing great video such as audio recorders, microphones, hand grips, handles and small monitors or monitor/recorders, but SmallRig’s custom cage provides enough of those in the form of 1/4-20 threaded holes and a NATO accessory rail on one side.

The SmallRig Cage for Panasonic Lumix LX100 2198 is the company’s first such cage to adopt a more protective form factor than SmallRig’s other camera cages to date and I hope augurs well for more protective camera cage designs in future.

I became aware of the usefulness of protective as well as connective camera cage designs when shooting on location in a challenging situation with a Lumix GH4 inside a GH4 Cube Cage made by Motion9, now rebranded as Seercam.

SmallRig’s design style has been evolving lately with the appearance of custom L-brackets which add videocentric features to a camera accessory formerly aimed solely at stills photography.

Hybrid cameras, equally adept at stills photography as high-quality video, have demanded a rethink on the question of camera and accessories support and I look forward to SmallRig’s designs becoming more hybrid-savvy.

The Panasonic Lumix LX100, and hopefully soon the Panasonic Lumix LX200, are a case in point.

I look to a camera like this being as good for handheld documentary photography or tripod-mounted portrait photography in vertical and horizontal orientation via built-in Arca-Swiss plate as it is for video whether accessorized minimally or with audio recorder, left side handle, top handle, microphone and even a monitor.

I would like to see SmallRig’s cage for the LX200 be even more hybrid-influenced than its LX100 cage, a fusion of Arca-Swiss tripod plate with NATO, Arri and 1/4-20 mounting points such that one never needs to remove it, so versatile and comfortable would it be whether held in the hand or mounted on tripod, monopod or gimbal.
