ARRI has just announced the L5 Fresnel as the lightweight, compact addition to its L-series LED Fresnels. Half the weight and half the size of the L7, the L5 adds direct battery input to make it an ideal choice for on-location productions. Considering its smaller form factor, the output is still 45% brighter than a traditional 300W tungsten Fresnel, yet it consumes only 115W of power.
Continuing their Art class of lenses, the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM zoom lens fills an interesting position for APS-C format digital SLRs, and is available for Canon EF-S, Nikon F, Sony Alpha, Pentax K and Sigma SA mounts.
Once a new camera is chosen, purchased and received, the depreciation clock starts immediately. Regular light maintenance is important in order to keep a camera in optimal working condition and ready for any situation.
Not so long ago, the single lens reflex was the undisputed king in and outside the studio, and anything short of this form factor was a compromise in both photographic performance and accessory options.
A quick glance through current consumer photo magazines can be a dizzying experience… new models seem to appear on the market as quickly as manufacturers can think up new names, and reviewers assure us that the old models are "oh-so-ten-minutes-ago," replaced by something better, faster, and often cheaper.
