Carl Zeiss Announces two new CP.2 Lenses at NAB 2012
As NAB 2012 gets closer, we’re going to get more and more dribs and drabs of new gear, and we’re pretty excited.
The latest to announce new gear is Carl Zeiss, who announced 2 new additions to their awesome CP.2 line
From the press release:
During the NAB Trade Show in Las Vegas from April 16-19, 2012, Carl Zeiss will present two new cine prime lenses. Carl Zeiss is expanding its product range of the Compact Prime CP.2 series with two compact and uncommonly lightweight lenses. With new focal lengths of 15mm and 135mm, filmmakers can enhance their portfolios with these remarkable lenses.
I hope Sony’s exhibition at NAB is called “cameras on cameras,” because that seems to be their game plan right now. Not content to have only one camera that competes with the C300, (the F3), Sony has decided to update their popular FS-100 to compete with the big boys.
The two biggest features on this camera are definitely going to be 4K and the wide range of frame rates. While the camera can only do 4K with an external Sony Recorder after a firmware update, it can do Super Slow Motion out of the box. You can get 120 frames for 16 second bursts, or 240 frames in 8 second bursts. If you don’t need your slow motion at 1080, you can even go up to 960 fps.
The camera seems, aesthetically, like an upgrade to the FS-100 design with some new features (like finally having ND filters and an HD-SDI), but in the field, this camera could be a whole new animal.
