Top manufacturers, vendors and technicians promoted their newest gear to cinematographers, camera operators, grips, gaffers and other crewmembers who capitalized on a great opportunity to get hands-on experience. The event also offered more than 25 seminars and panels, and honored camera and lens service providers Panavision and Birns & Sawyer for its 60 years of service to the entertainment industry.
Cine Gear 2014 focused on convenience, size and speed, and Ric Halpern from Radiant Images enlightened attendees on how these issues will affect the future of digital technology. “None of us can anticipate or predict where it’s going, but one of the things I can be sure of is that technology is only going to get smaller,” explained Halpern. “Whether it be the size of the sensors, the size of the optics or the size of the recording mechanism, you are going to have cooler sensors. Everything is going to get smaller and lighter and quicker. And it’s going to create freedom for filmmakers, whether they need to just hide something or whether they need to get into environments and in situations where they normally couldn’t.”
