Read all about it. The new ARRI Hi-5 is featured in Film and Digital Times August 2021 edition. Download free PDF.
Tail Slate Mode protects you from the muscle memory impulse to cut when the Director says “Cut.”
The display screen lets you navigate by touch or buttons.
There are 10 pre-engraved focus rings. A smart chip is embedded within each ring and the Hi-5 automatically adjusts accordingly.
OCU-1 Camera Operator override and Focus Puller handoff is seamless and good.
Hi-5 has a built-in base so it can rest at a comfortable angle on a flat surface like your Inovativ Echo camera cart’s top shelf.
A pivoting bracket slides onto the Hi-5’s top NATO rail to support a monitor.
Three different Radio Modules plug into the rear of Hi-5 for different ranges and regions.
All Hi-5 units include ALEXA camera control by default. Sony and RED camera control is planned with a future software update.
Focusbug Cine RT Ultrasonic Rangefinder System integration is expected with future firmware updates. read more…
On Friday, July 16, 2021, Agnès Godard, AFC, is honored with this year’s Pierre Angénieux Tribute for achievement in Cinematography at Cannes.
As an official partner of the Cannes Festival, Angénieux has celebrated a prominent Cinematographer every year since 2013 with the Pierre Angénieux Tribute. The ceremony typically opens with an introduction by Cannes Film Festival’s chief Thierry Fremaux and the presentation is hosted by Pierre Zéni, editor-in-chief at Cine+ Canal+.
Agnès Godard has won 11 awards and 13 nominations for her Cinematography. She won a César in 2001 for Beau travail, directed by Claire Denis, with whom she has worked on more than 15 films.

Angénieux lifted the mystery at Cannes today. Christophe Remontet, Managing Director Cinema Optics, announced two new Full Frame Optimo Ultra Compact Zoom lenses:
Specifications are expected in August, with the official launch of prototypes at Cine Gear in September and IBC in December. Christophe said that deliveries could be early 2022.
These two lightweight and compact zooms complement and match the existing Optimo Ultra 12x (36-435 T4.2 in FF/VV and 24-290 T2.8 in S35)
and the 12 Optimo Primes. read more…

There’s something special about the number 7.
Tribe7, makers of Full Frame, tunable Blackwing7 lenses are especially attuned to sevens. Initially, there were seven focal lengths, each ending in a seven: 27, 37, 47, 57, 77, 107 and 137 mm. An additional focal length, 20.7mm, has been introduced.
And so, on 7/7 of this year, Tribe7 announces that Blackwing7 lenses will be distributed exclusively in North America by AbelCine. The news follows on the heels of TRIBE7 announcements that Second Reef GmbH is the exclusive distributor of the Blackwing7 lenses in Europe. And, CVP is the exclusive distributor in the UK. read more…
