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...

The Sound Devices 744T

The Sound Devices 744T is a sleek and efficient four-track file based digital audio recorder that makes field recording fast and simple.  Capable of recording to and playing back from an internal hard drive, Compact Flash cards, and external firewire drives, the 744T is ideal for film or video productions that require an entirely separate system for audio recording. A more robust and proficient counterpart to the prosumer-ish Zoom H4n recorder, the 744T is ideal for Canon 5D or Canon 7D shoots that require professional field recording.  Whether it’s a highly mobile ENG job or a cart-based commercial production, the 744T’s compact design offers proficient and streamlined audio recording. The Sound Devices 744T works best when integrated into a setup with an outboard audio mixer.  Moving Picture carries a full line of audio mixers that includes the Sound Devices 552, 442, and 302.  Rent the Sound Devices 744T from Moving Picture for your next location audio job!

The Zoom H4n Audio Recorder

The Zoom H4n makes recording audio simple.  While this portable device is not nearly as robust as professional recorders such as the Sound Devices 744T, it’s an ideal answer for those out there who don’t have the experience or budget to capture professional location sound. Designed to be accessible and easy to navigate, the Zoom H4n brings a lot to the table without becoming overly complicated or confusing.  With two onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics, the H4n can capture solid audio right out of the box.  These mics, aligned on the same axis to ensure uniform audio (no phase shifting), are adjustable from 90 degrees to 120 degrees to control the range and spread of what is being recorded. With a 3-pin XLR and ¼” input, the H4n accepts line output sources (guitar amps, mixing consoles, etc) and is also capable of sending phantom power to external mics.  What’s more is the ability to record four channels of audio simultaneously.  The H4n is the only handheld recorder capable of capturing four channels – this can be done by using the onboard mics along with two of your own external mics.  A built in mixer allows you to blend the channels to generate a master that optimizes the quality of your audio. When you’re ready to transfer audio files to your computer, simply plug into the H4n’s USB 2.0 Hi-Speed port.  It doesn’t get much easier!  With the Zoom H4n recorder, you’ll be on your way to great audio in no time.  Rent the Zoom H4n from Moving Picture today, we’re here to give your next production a professional edge!
