We always encourage NAB attendees to stop by our booth, but this year we gave them a little more incentive. During the show dates, we ran a contest where anyone visiting our booth could snap a photo and upload it to Instagram with the tag #abelNAB for a chance to win a prize. One Grand Prize winner would receive a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, along with accessories (generously donated by Wooden Camera) and one of our AbelCine-designed Focus Bowtie charts. Other prizes included $250 training credits, good towards any in-person or online class we offer. 

After receiving a number of creative entries (some of which we featured on screens in our booth during the show), the winners have been decided! In fact, there were so many great entries, we ended up giving away five $250 training certificates instead of the originally-planned four. Check out the winning entries below:

At their NAB booth this year, Zeiss showed off an interesting new option for their Compact Zoom line of lenses. This new servo controller gives users the ability to control focus and iris, plus it is designed to work with all CZ.2 lenses via baseplates that are specific to each focal length. Watch my video above for more details and a closer look.

Alongside the AMIRA in our booth, we displayed another new accessory from Arri, the EMC-1 ENG Motor Controller. Designed to be used with ENG-type lenses such as the Fujinon Cabrios, this unit controls the focus, iris, and zoom motors, along with providing lens data that will be displayed on the WCU-4. Watch my video above to get a look at the EMC-1 working with a Cabrio 19-90 mounted on the AMIRA

Fujinon announced the 25-300 as the newest member of the Cabrio family right before this year’s NAB show. The lens is designed for 4K Super 35 sensors and, with a 12x zoom ratio and constant aperture of T3.5 from 25-273mm, is definitely meant to compliment the rest of the Cabrio family. At their NAB booth this year, Fujinon showed off the new lens, along with a mockup of the optional servo unit that will eventually offer electronic zoom, focus, and iris adjustment. Check out the video above for more details.

If you’ve stopped by our booth during this year’s NAB show, you’ve probably noticed our great chart display. Along with our popular Resolution Analysis Chart, we’re also showing off a brand new chart called the Matchmaker. Designed by our own Jesse Rosen, this compact chart is meant to make the process of color-matching cameras easier and features a full color spectrum on one side and an 11-step grayscale on the other. Watch the video above as Jesse explains in more detail.

I visited the Miller booth to speak with Gus Harilou about their new Cineline 70 fluid head. The Cineline 70 is a rugged fluid head specifically designed for professional cinematographers who require serious support, with features such an Arri-sized side-loading camera platform and the ability to mount on a traditional Mitchell flat base tripod (using an adapter). It is also fully moisture and dust-resistant, has dual side mounts for monitors and accessories, as well as a front head mount, which makes for a convenient for a camera assistant’s accessory box. Watch my video above for a closer look at this new fluid head.
