What's happening ?

The Guild of British Camera Technicians is opposed to all forms of racism and prejudice.

We pledge to continue to strive for equality and fairness in the workplace for everyone.

Over recent years the rise in virtual production has moved from being the preserve of the Big Budget Blockbusters to rapidly becoming an integral part of the day-to-day production workflow across the industry. Since 2012 Ncam have provided market leading camera tracking solutions to help provide live previs on set and rich recorded tracking data for post-production workflows.

Constantly looking to evolve the product to meet evolving production techniques and customer demands Ncam are pleased to release Reality 2020 running on the new Mk2 hardware which once again raises the bar allowing your creative freedom to be unleashed; enabled not limited by technology.
Please take this opportunity to learn more, see the products in action and quiz our specialist team on how Ncam can help you deliver on set for your clients.

Director of Photography Laurie Rose on shooting the award-winning Stan & Ollie. Shot on ARRI Alexa SXT cameras and a lens package of Cooke Optics S4 T2 primes and a FUJINON Lenses Alura zoom from Take 2 Films.

“I love the look and feel of the Alexa sensor, and know the camera pretty well,” says Rose about his kit and framing decisions. “In the mid-1930s, almost all lenses used in Hollywood and the UK were, in fact, Cookes, mainly due to their speed. Both Cooke and I wanted to honour that legacy. They invited me to test the uncoated Cooke S4s, which had only just been announced, but they proved a little too uncontrolled for my intended look. So I went with the coated S4s. As for the aspect ratio, widescreen is a received cinematic language that still differentiates the large and small screens, although the gap is narrowing. So, we shot 16:9 2.8K ARRIRAW and framed for a 2.39:1 extraction."

Nic Hatch, CEO of Ncam comments "There are many parts to the virtual production puzzle, but Covid-19 has certainly accelerated interest and the requirement to look for and how to extract efficiencies and flexibilities in the creative process of TV and filmmaking. Virtual production is perfectly placed to help stakeholders create content more efficiently and effectively, while driving quality even higher."

The video below from CNBC explains how Hollywood is looking to get back the new normal with virtual production, check it out!

The digital camera side of our business has issued a press release for a new feature in our Medium Format Digital Camera - GFX100. It allows for 4K RAW video to be output via HDMI and there will be a firmware update from Atomos in July that will allow the Ninja V to read and convert into ProRes RAW. This makes it the first "Medium Format" RAW shooting system that people can own. The sensor used for recording is actually LARGER than the ARRI Alexa65 in 16:9 mode.
