Tokina present a future release at Broadcast Asia: The Tokina 11-16mm T.3 Cine Lens. This lens raised some eyebrows at NAB this year. The stills version of this lens has been incredibly successful and hugely accepted within the industry as the one of the go-to wide angle lenses for the Super35mm format.
The Tokina 11-16mm cine lens shares the same sharp fast optics with the stills version along with permanent 0.8 lens gears for all three barrels, a de-clicked aperture and T-stopped at T.3.
Black Magic were interviewed at Broadcast Asia 2013 by Dan Chang from newsshooter.com talking about the much anticipated Pocket Cinema Camera, and 4k Super35 Cinema Camera. The consensus; we will see these cameras ship by the end of July.
Despite Black Magic’s previous positive track record with product releases, the original Black Magic Cinema Camera has caused up roar with buyers as they’ve struggled to get products out of the door. This is said to be due to problems lying with the company designing the 2.5K sensor. With both new releases utilising different sensors, Black Magic have stated they won’t share the same stocking issues.
