Atomos: Ninja Star and Shogun
Interview with Jeromy Young, CEO of Atomos. Jeromy talks about the amazing Ninja Star - the world's smallest and most affordable ProRes recorder; and the soon-to-be-released Shogun 4K ProRes and Cinema DNG recorder. **Ninja Star** The Ninja Star is the world’s smallest, lightest Apple ProRes recorder (130g/4.6oz). Small enough to fit in your pocket and light enough to hang from a quad-copter - the Ninja Star is the go-anywhere recorder. **Atomos Shogun** Record straight from the camera’s sensor in pristine 4K Apple ProRes or Cinema DNG Raw over HDMI and 12G-SDI. Seamlessly switch between 4K cameras with HDMI to SDI and SDI to HDMI conversion.**

Zeiss: Photographic and Cinema Lenses
Zeiss is known in the world of photography and cinematography for producing absolutely first-class lenses. In this interview with Paul Longley, National Sales Manager, UK, for Carl Zeiss Ltd, we specifically focus on what it is which separates the photographic lens from the cinema lens. Zeiss have been particularly innovative by providing interchangeable mounts for their CP2 lenses, enabling the lens to be fitted to Canon EF, Nikon, or PL. Furthermore, the manual Zeiss Loxia (designed for the Sony full-frame A7 series) photographic lenses, allow for smooth iris control, as found on cinema lenses, or hard stops as found on a photographic lens. This ability to share photographic lenses in a cinematography environment, and to simply change lens mount options on the cinema lenses, make the Zeiss lenses remarkably flexible in the demanding worlds of photography and cinematography.
