Canon C300 Mark II Internal 4K

Now In Rental Canon C300 Mark II 4K Camera at CSI Rentals Manhattan And Brooklyn NY

The heart of any Canon camera is its superb image-sensor technology. The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera integrates an 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor that supports 4K (DCI) recording with a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. The camera fully utilizes the image data delivered by this 4K CMOS sensor to also enable Over Sampling HD Processing for 2K (DCI) and Full HD1080/60p recording.

Each pixel in this CMOS imaging sensor also maintains a wide pixel pitch that maximizes the amount of light that falls on to each photo site thus enhancing the EOS C300 Mark II’s sensitivity while also minimizing noise and supporting ISO speeds of up to 102, 400 for extreme low-light imaging. This sensor also reduces data-readout time to about half of what it was in the original EOS C300 Camera, which results in a significant reduction in rolling-shutter artifacts.

DJI Ronin M 3 Axis Gimbal Incredibly Compact. Unbelievably Light

DJI Ronin M 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer


INCREDIBLY COMPACT. UNBELIEVABLY LIGHT. Weighing just 5 pounds (2.3kg), about half the weight of the original Ronin, the slimmed down Ronin-M is small enough to fit into your backpack and take anywhere, yet strong enough to support camera setups weighing up to 8 pounds (3.6kg).

FAST SETUP, PRECISE BALANCING Save time and start shooting professionally stabilized video in under 5 minutes. Mount your camera to the Ronin-M, quickly balance it, and then tap a button. The upgraded ATS (Auto Tune Stability) technology is more precise than before and completes the tuning and balancing processes with no tools necessary. Easy and efficient.

NEW MAGNESIUM FRAME Your Ronin-M stands up to rugged use in any filming environment. Featuring a superbly strong and rigid magnesium frame, the Ronin-M brings increased stiffness and reduced weight. Notoriously difficult to manufacture and mold, magnesium brings you a new, more exact shooting experience while maintaining easy maneuverability and increasing options on set.

SOLID SUPPORT ARM  Increased rigidity is provided by a single, complete piece of fine-tooled magnesium that forms the U-shaped arm holding the camera plate. Only made possible by DJI’s large manufacturing reach and expertise, this unified design eliminates imperfections that are common in systems made of multiple pieces assembled together. This arm gives you not only greater stability but also reliability, as there is no potential for separate pieces to come loose or move apart.

SIMPLE DISASSEMBLY FOR UNMATCHED FLEXIBILITY Capture tight shots, even when you have almost no space to work, and easily transport your Ronin-M. The top handle bars quickly and easily twist off, allowing you to minimize its size, achieve different shooting configurations, and pack or unpack it in seconds.

SMOOTHTRACK CONTROL  Even with only one operator, SmoothTrack technology ensures the Ronin-M translates your movements into smooth camera angle changes. Your camera intuitively faces the direction you want, all while completely stabilized, no matter how you move. SmoothTrack settings from speed to deadband to acceleration are fully customizable, and ‘Single Axis Follow Mode’ enables you to lock two axes while SmoothTrack guides your camera along only one axis of motion.

ENDLESS SHOOTING SCENARIOS. ONE FLEXIBLE SOLUTION. Capture shots that are impossible with any other setup. Switch effortlessly between the 3 modes of operation, without adjusting any settings or needing a 2nd operator remote.

UNDERSLUNG MODE Film effortlessly and comfortably in the most common shooting mode, holding the Ronin-M directly in front of you at chest level.

UPRIGHT MODEShoot at or above eye-level by flipping and lifting the lightweight Ronin-M above your head. This mode is perfect for shooting out of a car’s sunroof or above a crowd of people.

BRIEFCASE MODE  Filming in narrow spaces or moving through a doorway is effortless with Briefcase mode. Turn the gimbal vertically and hold it by your side close to your legs, just like a briefcase.

LONG BATTERY LIFE  Film all day, until you get every shot, with the Ronin-M’s smart battery and a runtime of over 6 hours. Overcharge and over depletion protection is built in, as is individual cell charge balancing. Remaining power is shown by clear LEDs and in the Assistant mobile app.

POWERFUL MOTORS. PRECISION CONTROL. Designed with high performance in mind, the Ronin-M’s brushless motors are incredibly precise and powerful while maintaining low vibration and increasing torque. Industry-leading accuracy is increased even further with Digital Absolute Positioning Encoders in each axis, and a much larger range of controllable motion on both the tilt (105? Up, 165? Down) and roll (± 110?) axes.

SILENT MODE When shooting indoors or in tight spaces, a new Silent Mode reduces the sound of each motor to almost inaudible levels. The Ronin-M’s stabilization algorithms are instantly changed to focus on strength for minute changes and stabilization, ensuring the sound of the motors is not recorded by sensitive microphones or other recording equipment.

SECOND OPERATOR FOR IMPOSSIBLE SHOTS  Capture anything you can imagine with a second operator controlling the camera’s movements as the first operator moves around set. Achieve perfect framing and complete more complex camera movements by working together and making your camera’s motions completely independent of the person holding it.

MOUNTS TO ANYTHING  Easily mount your Ronin-M with a quick-release system that is compatible with a wide range of universal connections. Remove the top bar assembly in seconds and put your Ronin-M on a jib, crane, tripod, or anything else.

COMPATIBLE THUMB CONTROLLER  Gain more control over your camera’s motions with a built-in receiver that is fully compatible with the optional DJI Ronin Thumb Controller. Point the camera in any direction and save preset settings for fast, easy operation.

POWER YOUR TOOLS A dedicated power distribution box keeps wiring to a minimum while providing power to your key accessories. Two regulated 12V P-taps, one 500mAH full-size USB connector, and a DJI Lightbridge connector enable you to connect and provide power to everything you need.

Matthews Float Cam Multifunctional DC Slider

The DC-Slider manufactured by FloatCam is  a multi functional camera platform that offers many creative possibilities to camera operators.

By combining an unusually long variable-angled camera slider track with mini-jib functionality, the DC-Slider is truly remarkable displaying both state-of-the-art technology and precision engineering.

Additionally, the DC-Slider quickly transforms into a vertical 6-foot tower. In this configuration the DC-Slider’s counterbalancing feature ensures precision camera moves are smooth and steady.

And that’s what makes it so unique!



ANGLES: The DC-Slider allows a wide rance of variable angle operations. No matter how acute the angle, the counterbalance system will assure steady and stable camera movements. A simple, positive-locking adjustment feature allows for camera placement at the exact vertical or off-axis position for creative imaging. Minimum and maximum heights of the DC-Slider in the multi-angled positions are dependent on the height of the tripod.MINI-JIB: In the Mini-Jib mode, the DC-Slider operates a working diameter of 63″ (160cm) on the horizontal. The counterbalance system is locked to ensure unvarying movements through the full-range of the hib arm’s capabilities. An easy adjustment of the parallelogram bar will allow the camera to stay locked on to a subject through the rance of the jib arm’s vertical travel rather than staying in a fixed attitude. The maximum and minimum operating heights of the Mini-jib function are dependent on the height of the tripod.

TOWER: With the simple removal and repositioning of two handles, the DC-Slider becomes a tower allowing for an exact vertical camera move through the full rance of the 63″ (160cm) track. Minimum and maximum heights of the camera moves, when mounted on the tower, are dependent on tripod configuration. The counterbalance system maintains a steady resistance to camera moves reducing the possibilities of irregular movements during the start or finish of a camera move.

SLIDER: The DC-Slider can be mounted on a single tripod or placed on level or uneven surfaces and the constant counterbalance feature will always maintain a uniform pressure that ensures uniform camera movements throughout the full tracking length of 63″ (160cm)>
