May Drop In

Our Drop In this month will feature two presentations.
First up Lemac will once again unveil the latest, greatest and sometimes strangest futuristic camera innovations and announcements from the NAB Show 2016. This annual light hearted reel will give you a chance to see the latest production tools and cinema tech gadgetry. With interviews from leading experts and manufacturers this evening, as always, promises to be a fun yet informative way to process all the latest from the show.

Following on, Stefan Sedlmeier of ARRI Australia will showcase ARRI's latest camera model: ALEXA SXT Plus with Master Anamorphic lenses for hands-on and testing as well as a fully-featured ALEXA Mini with ARRI Wireless Remote System to demonstrate its remote control capabilities for any ARRI and non-ARRI cameras and third party lenses such as ENG zooms for focus, iris and zoom control as well as camera operation and programming of lens mapping tables. Cameras and accessories will be available and Stefan will be happy to accommodate any questions or feedback from customers.
So get yourself and your guests along to ACS HQ (address below) on Thursday 19th May - doors will be open from 6pm.
