HIVE LIGHTING NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE OR RENTAL

A new lighting technology called PLASMA is relighting America coast-to-coast, replacing old-school sodium vapor with smaller, more efficient, more color correct and brighter street lights. They just upgraded the street lights on my Street in Atlanta, and it’s a dirt road! The preeminent exponent of this technology for motion picture needs is HIVE located in Los Angeles, but represented in Atlanta by John Sharaf Photography. They manufacture the globe and the light, which comes in wattage from 250-1000 and are VERY efficient. Also runs on battery. Great for Owner/Operators, Docs, 2nd Unit, Low Budget Projects, etc. Use this link to see and price Hive Rentals then call for demo or pickup.

FUJINON PREMIER KIT 75-400MM T2.8-3.5 LENS

The Premier family of four high quality optical devices are the rarest of the newest, modern, telecentric and contrasty lenses available. They are notoriously in short supply but now John Sharaf Photography has BOTH the 24-180 and the 75-400. These lenses are seeing more and more use with 4K Digital Cinema Cameras where 2/3″ EFP Cameras had been the norm; especially when paired with the Varicam V35’s, you have 4K, Dual Slot Recording, Remote Iris and Operation control by Ethernet cable to conventional ROP Panels. This is very appropriate to both scripted and non scripted programming. We plan to complete the set of four very soon, stay tuned!

PANASONIC VARICAM LT

The VARICAM LT shares the same imager as its big brother the VARICAM 35, with 800/5000 Dual Native ISO and Extended Color Gamut, it’s sized for use on Steadicam, Movi, Drone, or in other small places.  Also ideal for Handheld work in Theatrical and Documentary Productions.  Some shows will want to carry it as the “B” camera and others will make it the principal camera.  Very flexible and enhances the Cinematographer’s choices of the right tool for the job at hand.  The 5000 ISO is a compelling feature, but now in combination with a very small profile camera, the LT from Panasonic is truly unique.
