New Gear: RED Motion Mount
We've added the new DSMC RED Motion Mount Titanium PL to our rental inventory. The mount provides 8-stops of Variable Neutral Density. The mount also behaves like a Global Shutter, creating images with more filmic motion blur. Here's the description from RED:
The RED MOTION MOUNT® Ti PL pushes the limits of what is possible under virtually any motion capture scenario. It’s a finely tunable neutral density filter over a wide range of stops. It’s a global shutter that prevents partial illumination with strobes and shearing with fast subjects. It’s a time filter that renders sharper yet smoother pans, artifact-free cyclical motion, more natural motion blur, and reduced or eliminated flicker with lights and electronic displays. Most importantly, all of this can be achieved using a drop-in titanium lens mount that preserves your existing camera and workflow.
VARIABLE NDThe RED MOTION MOUNT integrates an intelligent neutral density (ND) system into its design, allowing you to electronically adjust your ND levels for precise exposure. Through the on-screen controls of your EPIC or SCARLET, you can finely adjust your ND opacity up to 2.4 ND, instead of having to interchange work around the predetermined values of ND glass filters. This technology encourages you to work faster and lighter by reducing the need to overload your matte box.
GLOBAL SHUTTERThe RED MOTION MOUNT also has a mode that behaves like a global shutter. When working with strobes or fast subjects, this mode reduces partial exposure issues and provides more consistent illumination for every frame. Skewed and smeared artifacts become imperceptible as the REDMOTION MOUNT fundamentally changes the way your camera captures light.
SOFT SHUTTER FILTERCleaner pans, less cyclical motion artifacts, and no flicker – that’s what you can expect from your image with a RED MOTION MOUNT. The built-in time filter system eliminates many of the troubles associated with traditional motion cameras and elevates the quality of all of your imagery. With more natural motion blur and no more flickering displays or lights, the RED MOTIONMOUNT brings your digital image closer to human eyesight than ever before.
