22e édition du Micro Salon de l’AFC


ACS France at Micro Salon AFC Show

We will be pleased to meet you during the Micro Salon (Level 2 – Plateau 3), and present you our brand new products.

We will present you.
- Dual Lens set-up Shotover K1:
An adapted version of the Shotover K1 which has been developed by our technicians. Fitted with two broadcast cameras, the single operator can switch between a wide lens and a tight lens at the flick of a switch.

- The Shotover U1 drone:
The Shotover U1 is the first professional drone dedicated to film and broadcast. It fits with the new generation of cameras and zoom lens setups eg: Red, Alexa Mini, Sony F55, Phantom Flex4K & Canon 17-120mm, Fuji 85-300 or Optimo 28-76mm.

- The remote head U1g:
The gimbal itself U1g is de-mountable and can be used on its own as a stabilised head on vehicles, cables or rails.

- The Shotover F1:
Smaller than the K1, but punching above its weight, the Shotover F1 is incredibly adaptable.
Thanks to its compact size, the F1 adapts to all sorts of vehicle - helicopter, car, cable, boat, and rail for all sorts of formats - most modern cameras fit, with a wide range of lens options available.

- The MicroCable:
A horizontal cable travelling system which is easier to rig and more affordable than our Cablecam® technology.

In the last year CW Sonderoptic has begun delivery of both the 16mm and 135mm Summilux-C T1.4 lenses. Both lenses are engineering masterpieces of size, weight and performance and match perfectly with the existing Summilux-C lenses and bring the whole set to 12 focal lengths. The 16mm was used for some shots on The Revenant by cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC. With this new lens Thierry Arbogast, AFC is actually shooting Valerian directed by Luc Besson.

HD Systems at Micro Salon AFC Show 2016

As authorized representative and technical "Preston cinema" support for European countries, we are pleased to present at the Micro Salon the production version of the Ranger Light 2.

This tool based on infrared technology will become soon the focus puller’s best companion, the LR2 is now available for rental and/or sale. This sensor, distance meter "multi- zone", coupled with a highly intuitive graphical interface, will allow users of regular FIZ systems (HU3/MDR3 ) to have a real-time assistance while setting very sharp focus. We will present a small demo movie during our Micro Salon’s projection sessions.

K5600 at Micro Salon 2016

K5600 always believed in being close to the end-users and participating in exhibitions and Festivals is a great opportunity to exchange information and ideas. This often leads to new ideas for new products. The new Alpha 800W was born from some of these discussions over the years.

Indeed, we live in a world where time is essential, as much as budget. The size of the trucks is also shrinking in proportion with the amount of fixtures on the lighting list. K5600 answer to this has always been versatility. The Joker Bug range has become a perfect illustration of this, now the Alpha 800 is benefiting from that same policy by becoming even more versatile than before.

Thanks to the new 90° socket adapter the bulb moves from vertical for the Fresnel and open eye functionality to horizontal to become a Par or a lens-less focusable unit. No tools necessary, the change is done in a twist. The changing of the bulb has also been improved to allow a quick change of bulb in the choice of 3200 K or 5600 K discharge lamps now available.

Once again, K5600 engineers developed a product which combines light quality and versatility with no compromise. Soon to be available in February or March 2016, the Alpha 800 + will be soon followed by the 1600 and later 4 K and 9 K.

Loumasystems at AFC Micro Salon 2016

Loumasystems will exhibit the latest developments of the Louma 2 shot assist software.
This simple and user friendly real time shot assistance facilitate the coordination of the crew while achieving difficult shots.

The inter-axis network of the Louma 2 allows communication and correlations between the different axes of the crane in order to achieve specific camera trajectories.
The latest developments are related to the “Planing” compensation, from the word “plane” understood as a geometric plane.
This “Planing” mode keeps the camera at the end of the arm on a vertical or horizontal plane while the arm is maneuvered. This is achieved by the telescope going in or out to compensate the arc of the arm.

We will also exhibit the electric 4 wheels all terrain scooter which has been developed by Loumasystems and used on the long feature Saisons, the new movie by Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud.
