Once again, DZOFilm delivers new options for high-production-value cinematography, and we at B&H Photo are excited to announce the two new full-frame zoom lenses in the DZOFilm Catta series. Available in white and suitable for narrative, commercial, live, and documentary filmmaking, these cinema-style  interchangeable-mount zoom lenses are available in Canon RF, Leica L, Sony E, Fuji X, and Nikon Z mounts, allowing you to swap  mounts and mount them natively on most cameras that support full-frame sensors. The optical and mechanical advantages of the Catta lenses will please cinematographers, focus pullers, and producers alike, and they are available as a single 35 to 80mm lens, 70 to 135mm lens, or as a two-lens kit. The mounts will be available separately, allowing you to expand your kit as needed. DZOFilm Catta series 70 to 135mm lens DZOFilm Catta series 35 to 80mm lens With a 43.5mm image circle and covering 35 to 80mm and 70 to 150mm, the lenses provide a consistent look from wide to long for full-frame image capture, meaning less time worrying about finding matching primes, quickly covering the scene with minimal lens changes—and you can use these lenses on intimate interiors, as well as studio sets and exteriors without compromise. The T2.9 maximum aperture is consistent throughout the zoom range across both lenses, meaning no relights just to get proper exposure when punching in for close-ups, freeing you to make creative decisions. The optical and iris designs create smooth, natural bokeh that helps draw your audience into the story, and won’t distract from interview shots when making documentaries. The gradual focus shift will help your focus pulls go unnoticed, and the long focus throw will help your focus puller acquire and hit precise focus marks, while the flexible-mount system will appeal to anyone who has more than one camera on which they want to use these lenses. Have you used DZOFilm lenses? Once youv’e tried the new Catta series of zoom lenses, share your experiences and thoughts in the Comments section, below.

Go beyond the traditional action cam with the versatile new DJI Action 2 camera and accessories. Sporting a redesigned camera module that allows users to magnetically attach a trove of additional accessories—for example, a Front Touchscreen Module that’s great for vloggers—the versatile Action 2 can be configured for every type of action, from wave surfing to couch surfing, and everything in between. This camera, in its complete ecosystem, sports a 155° FOV and is waterproof down to 32' below the surface for shooting in almost any location and weather. Add a waterproof case to shoot down to 196' or take the camera out of the case and add a macro lens attachment. Simple to use with a large built-in touchscreen on the back of the camera, the Action 2 sports some impressive technical specs, such as a sensor with 4000 x 3000 pixel resolution, and it’s able to shoot UHD 4K, 2.7K, and 1080p up to 120 fps, recording to 32GB of internal memory using H.264/HEVC encoding as MP4 files. You can add additional storage with a readily available UHS-1 microSD card up to 256GB, and the integrated LiPo provides about 70 minutes of run time. Built into the camera are image stabilization and an automatic horizon feature to keep your image level. DJI Action 2 Camera and accessories As impressive as the camera is on its own, what makes the Action 2 camera an exciting release are the magnetic accessories that are easy to attach and expand the camera’s functionality and features. The camera has built-in magnets and uses a surface-mounted expansion port for attaching accessories. These include the  Front Touchscreen Module, which with accessories is perfect for turning your camera into a Dual Screen Combo  vlogging system. A Power Module  can be purchased by itself, or pick up the Power Combo, which includes the camera, power module, and accessories to extend the camera run time to 180 minutes. More magnetic accessories include the 3-prong  Magnetic Adapter Mount, a lanyard system for hands-free carrying and filming, Ball-Joint Adapter Mount, Floating Handle, Headband Mount, and Remote Control Extension Rod that can also serve as a mini tripod. Not to be overlooked is the Action 2 Wireless Microphone, which leverages the camera’s wireless capabilities to free your mic from being tethered to the camera, enabling you to get the mic just where it needs to be (up to 660' feet away from the camera) for optimal sound without interfering with the camera’s movement. DJI Action 2 with Headband Mount So, if you are a pro who wants more control over the camera’s settings, or just want to grab and go, it’s worth taking note of the DJI Action 2 camera system. Please share your thoughts on how you would like to use the action 2 camera in the comments section below—we’d love to hear them.

DJI has just announced the Ronin 4D, the brand’s newest line of professional cameras for the next generation of cinema production, featuring two all-in-one 4-axis gimbal cameras: the Ronin 4D 8K Cinema Camera and the Ronin 4D 6K Cinema Camera. The Ronin 4D’s modular system is made up of a core processing unit and a gimbal camera featuring DJI’s flagship Zenmuse X9 sensor and the new DJI CineCore 3.0 image processing system with DCCS (DJI Cinema Color System). The core cameras can be built out with a variety of mix-and-match accessories, depending on your production needs in the studio or on location. DJI Ronin 4D The compact camera features a built-in gimbal that installs on the arm of the main unit, and it adds a fourth Z-axis to the traditional 3-axis configuration for additional stability in motion, particularly during dolly movement, to prevent vertical shake. The gimbal provides multiple visual sensors, an IMU (inertia/force sensor), and a barometer to keep the camera rock steady. Its AMF (Automated Manual Focus) technology provides accurate autofocus while also allowing the camera operator to control focus at any time during the automated process. Ronin 4D 6K Cinema Camera Ronin 4D 8K Cinema Camera On the inside, the Ronin 4D provides either the Zenmuse X9 8K sensor that can capture up to 8K75 video with 800/4000 dual native ISOs or the Zenmuse X9 6K sensor that can capture up to 6K60 or 4K120 video with 800/5000 dual native ISO. The CineCore 3.0 image processing system allows the camera to record ProRes RAW, 422 HQ, and H.264 formats internally; it utilizes ActiveTrack Pro for tracking shots, and both sensors feature an advertised 14+ stops of dynamic range. The full 8192 x 4320 resolution features crisp detail that can be cropped to 4K, re-centered, and stabilized in post, retaining the same high-quality imagery. Other features of the camera include built-in 9-stop ND filters, HDMI and SDI outputs, and a DL lens mount to support a variety of full-frame, carbon-fiber lenses, which will be available in the near future. The DL mount also allows for interchangeable lens mounts such as Leica M and Sony E-mount that provide zoom, macro, and anamorphic options for your production. The camera can record internally using a built-in CFexpress Type-B slot on the main body, and it also features a USB 3.1 Type-C port to record externally to a 1TB PROSSD. It records on-board audio using the 3.5mm and XLR input connectors on the main body. Since the design is modular, there are numerous accessory options available to add to the camera to complete your rig, including a top handle, X9 focus motor, high-bright monitor, and focus/pan/tilt handgrips. An expansion plate can be added to provide an SDI port, XLR input, and timecode. An optional wireless transmitter uses DJI’s O3 wireless video technology, allowing you to monitor up to 1080p60 video from the camera up to 20,000' away over 2.4 and 5.8 GHz DFS frequencies using secure AES-256 encryption. 1TB PROSSD High-Bright Monitor LiDAR Range Finder With the optional LiDAR Range Finder, you can focus accurately using an intuitive waveform, which can detect up to 43,200 points within a 33' range with varying surface textures and subtle light changes to provide autofocus and ActiveTrack Pro, working with an enormous amount of data. The camera is powered either from a DC power input or from a high-capacity TB50 battery, which can provide up to 2 hours of shoot time. Questions or comments? Post them in the Comments section, below.
