AbelCine Spring Tech Showcase NY

The AbelCine Spring Tech Showcase, at their Industry City, Brooklyn location took place on Saturday, May 21. It was an enjoyable, focused, not-massive, local event — a full day of exhibits by the major camera, lens and lighting manufacturers, panel discussions and tech sessions. It was the premiere of the new BLACKWING7 amber skin lens variant from TRIBE7. Jay Holben was there, signing his definitive and encyclopedic The Cine Lens Manual. Canon showed their new T2.4 Flex Full Frame zooms. Tim Smith showed how seamless and simple it was to customize Angenieux Optimo Primes with their swappable internal element, swappable irises, front and rear filters. Motion Impossible’s remote controlled, modular, motorized Agito dolly  glided through the halls, navigated by Ben Dair, Chief Product Officer. read more…

Blackwing7 News on 7/7

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…

New AbelCine Website

AbelCine’s new website has gone live. It is blazingly fast and well organized. It senses when you’re using an iPhone, smartphone or tablet, so you can shop, rent or learn anywhere. Searching is simple and quick, with tabs and filters to help narrow results. The search box is also smart. For example, if you can’t remember how to spell KipperTie, results will start showing up once you get to “kipper.” The website is a great reference for product specs.
