News from our office! As the regulations from the government are getting increasingly more flexible we have decided to go back to our regular opening hours. From Monday the 6th of July we will opened Monday to Friday from 08:00 - 19:00. More time to pick up your gear, test your equipment in one of our testing rooms or to come by for some advice. Of course we will still be urging you to stay home if you are feeling sick, wash your hands at the entrance and keep a 1.5 meter distance in the office. And if you’re in need for some extra protection during your shoot… The face shields are still available. You can pick them up at our office! Hope to see you soon! 👍

We will be extending our Corona measures until the 31st of August. What does that mean?

We will also be extending our Corona giveaways! ▶️ Renting a camera? Free eye-cushions, as many as you need for your shoot. ▶️ Renting a full camera package (camera, lenses and a monitor)? Free of charge video transmitter set, including 1 receiver per monitor (up to 4 max.) ▶️ Everyone can pick up free reusable face shields at our office.

Ter aanvulling op het Covid-19 Protocol Audiovisuele Sector, lanceert Dutch Academy For Film (DAFF), naast haar reeds gepresenteerde Toolkit, nu ook een app met nuttige tips en tricks om de filmwerkzaamheden binnen de nieuwe 1,5-meter-werksituatie in de AV-sector uit te kunnen voeren. Via de AV Covid-19 Toolkit NL APP kunnen filmmakers snel en gemakkelijk de tips en tricks uit de Toolkit vinden die voor hen van toepassing zijn. Deze zijn bedoeld om inzichten en inspiratie te geven met als einddoel besmetting te voorkomen. De app biedt, naast hands-on adviezen voor ieder departement binnen de gestelde regels van het RIVM, ook inzage in het onlangs geactualiseerde protocol. De app is te openen via bijgevoegde QR-code of via deze link -> https://avtoolkitcovid19nl.glideapp.io/ Soon available in English! 😉
It feels like ages ago that we hosted our very first Camalot Cinema Challenge. We really hope to organise it again at the end of this year! 🍿 Who would be a worthy successor to our first winner Friso? 🏆
As the COVID-19 situation continues, so does the need to be able to live stream. With live streaming products from i.a. Teradek and Blackmagic Design you can continue working by monitoring your shoot remotely, allowing you to send an encrypted feed live from the camera on set to a remote production office, home or other location. With most of these streaming sets you can also stream directly to online video platforms like Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Periscope and Twitch. Call our office or send us an email if you want to know more or if we could help you out with your set-up! ☝️
We have been busy the last couple of weeks, making our office Corona-proof. The prime minister just announced that the regulations, that are applicable for us, will be continued. That’s why we have taken some measures to not only make our office Corona-proof but also to make your shoot as smooth and comfortable as possible. ✔ Are you renting a camera from us? Then you will be given free eye-cushions. As many as you need for your shoot. ✔ Are you renting a full camera package (camera, lenses and a monitor) from us? Then we will provide you with a video transmitter set, including 1 receiver per monitor (up to 4 max.). Completely free of charge. ✔ And last but not least… All our clients can pick up free reusable face shields at our office. They are inspired by Apple and handmade in our office. All these freebies are available as long as the Corona regulations from the government continue. Do you have a question about coming to the office, renting something or your shoot? Don

Did you see our new Leitz Primes already? Well, we've got something you might like to use with it: our MACROLUX adapters! The MACROLUX offers cinematographers and lens owners a creative way to get different looks and extend the performance of prime, zoom and anamorphic lenses with 114 and 95 mm front diameters. It offers a greater macro effect for table top and close up work. But also out of focus: on wide or mid-range focal length lenses the MACROLUX throws the background further out of focus and accentuates beautiful elements like focus fall off and bokeh.
