Rental Showcase: New Lenses Available at Moving Picture

Moving Picture has been listening to requests and working hard to bolster our rental inventory to meet the wants and needs of today’s shooter.  We are excited to announce the arrival of some new glass that you might be interested in. PL Mount Canon CN-E 30-300mm, T2.95-3.7, PL Mount Moving Picture welcomes the new Canon CN-E 30-300mm PL studio zoom lens to our South Forida rental inventory. The Canon has created a nice package with this lens. The 30-300mm range is broad enough to get a full head-to-toe wide shot, then zoom in for a close up from about 10 feet from the camera. Addditionally, it’s lightweight design (only 13lbs) is half the weight of a Optimo 24-290 lens, which helps with rigging, support, and usage. This lens has a very smooth non-breathing 300 degree focus rotation and witness marks on both sides of the barrel.   Fujinon 19-90mm Cabrio, T2.9, PL Mount The Cabrio is a wonderfully versatile zoom lens, seemingly tailor made for documentary style shooting. The Fujinon Cabrio PL lens has all the best qualities of a broadcast zoom lens while retaining the dramatic shallow depth of field of 35mm format cinema lenses. It’s compact size, light weight, and integrated rocker servo motors for focus, iris, and zoom control make it perfect for handheld ENG style shooting. The Fujinon 19-90 Cabrio is the perfect companion to the Sony PMW-F3 camera (or our new PMW-F5 coming in February). The electronic shoe in the F3’s PL mount powers the Cabrio’s servo system eliminating the need for external power. EF Mount Canon 16-35mm, f/2.8 II USM, EF Mount Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 II USM is the widest lens we’ve found that will work on the Canon 5D without a vignette messing with your shot mojo. This lens was designed from the ground up to work with full frame sensors. It’s convenient wide-angle zoom range compliments the Canon 24-70 nicely.       Canon 24-70mm, f/2.8 II USM, EF Mount Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 II USM has been freshly redesigned by Canon. The new design boasts sharper detail, specifically in the edges and corners. The 24-70mm range has been the workhorse of our Canon fleet of lenses for some time now, and we’re quite pleased to see the design facelift.       Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro IS USM, EF Mount Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro IS USM is a beautiful lens in either still or video mode. And a first for Canon, is the integration of their Image Stabilization circuity into a macro lens. You can even operate this lens in a handheld configuration and pull off some wonderfully creative shots.       Bookmark it to...

The Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

The Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens is the successor to the long respected telezoom lens that contributed greatly in making this Canon lens line a favorite among directors of photography and home consumers alike.  Dust and drip-proof, the Canon L series lenses offer stunning image technology paired with robust engineering. With a reduction of the minimum focus distance to 1.2m and an increase in the maximum magnification to .21x, the Canon EF 70-200mm II captures a rich depth of field that allows shooters a great deal of versatility in image selection.  News photographers and commercial DPs will love this lens for the same reason – flexibility paired with spectacular image quality. Furthering their commitment to improving upon original designs, Canon engineers rehashed the internal optical system to include 23 elements in 19 groups.  The end result is high contrast images with edge-to-edge definition.  Adding greatly to this redesign, the EF 70-200mm II features a major reduction in the protrusion of exterior parts and switches along with a new high-speed Auto Focus (AF) system.  A ring-type USM AF motor combined with a new high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithm is at the core of the EF 70-200mm II AF system, making it both faster and quieter than previous systems. This lens is an excellent addition to any Canon 5D or Canon 7D package.  Rent the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens from Moving Picture today! Bookmark it to Stumbleupon, Digg, and more! Hide...
