The new /i Lens Display Box for the smaller, lighter iteration of Cinematography Electronics' Cinetape displays metadata in a more user-friendly way.
The /i Lens Display box reads critical metadata information from /i technology-equipped lenses and displays the combined data on a multicolored bar-graph display for a quick depth-of-field reference.
“The /i Lens Display combines the metadata from the lens with information from the Cinetape 2 and displays it in a way that is more user friendly for camera people and for those that just don’t want to mess with all the individual metadata details,” says Cinematography Electronics’ Larry Barton. “We also have a bar graph that displays whether what they have in focus is right in the middle, at the far end or at the near end of the depth of field.”
“Cinematography Electronics was the first company outside Cooke that worked with /i technology, and we are delighted that it is still helping push the boundaries,” says Les Zellan, chairman of Cooke Optics. “Focusing is becoming increasingly critical as more and more people seek to apply ‘the Cooke Look’ to full-frame work, and this is exactly the sort of tool that was behind the creation of /i technology in the first place.”
