Bright Tangerine are marking NAB 2017 as their full venture into the camera accessories market. They are unveiling a host of new products, including armors with in/out interfaces for the ARRI Alexa Mini and RED camera range, a compact follow focus in the Revolvr Atom, as well as new lens supports and Titan Arm accessories. The most significant announcement from Bright Tangerine is their shell-like support for the ARRI Alexa Mini and RED cameras. “These accessories will offer camera protection, triggering functions, multiple mounting points, signal splitting and powering options and a plethora of inputs and outputs.“ We’ll disclose more when we visit them at NAB for a catch-up video, but it looks as if these cages will offer further power and signal outputs (SDI, D tap) as well as top cheese plate, top handle, V-lock power module and 19mm and 15mm rod support. They cling quite nicely to the CAD design cameras; it will be interesting to see how they address the rear media bay on the Alexa Mini. Also on show will be the Revolvr Atom. Bright Tangerine released their full Revolvr follow-focus system earlier this year, with the Atom offering a more compact solution. Off the back of their follow focus venture comes a new series of lens supports for 15mm and 19mm rod systems. A small announcement at the bottom of their PR for NAB is a range of new twist and rod adapter accessories for the Bright Tangerine Titan Arm. As a user of the Titan Arm, I warmly welcome this. I had already DIY-rigged mine to host 15mm studs, as it is much quicker and safer to use over ¼” 20 threads. Lastly, there’s a new Blackhole Mini, designed for lenses ranging from 41-114mm diameter. Bright Tangerine will be exhibiting all of this at NAB this weekend.Read more

Here’s a great little piece of kit for compact rod solutions. The Rhino Mount from Redrock Micro is a simple 6″ 15mm rod with a Cold Shoe mount on one side for connecting directly to the top of small cameras. Simple and non exciting as it may seem, this can save you a lot of hassle and weight as a gimbal operator. Wireless follow focus systems are fantastic, but weight soon adds up when considering the motor, driver, cables and not the mention mounting it all to the camera. The Redrock Micro Rhino Mount is a simple solution, 6″ rod with a Cold Shoe mount on one end. It will bypass conventional, heavier solutions; top plates with single rod clamps, lightweight baseplate or a half cage. The Rhino Mount bolts straight to the top of the camera allowing a very lightweight setup for wireless follow focus systems like the microRemote. via/ Redrock Micro TwitterRead more
