June Drop In

Our June Drop In promises to be an interesting one as NSW sponsor Adept Turnkey present two new and exciting Vision Research cameras, the Phantom Flex4K-GS and the Phantom VEO-640S High Speed Camera. Vision Research are well known for their popular range of high speed cameras and these two cameras are no exception with the ability of the VEO-640S to record 1920 x 1080 at over 2,500 fps and the Flex4K-GS to record 4K at 1000fps. The Flex4K-GS also offers a choice of either a global or rolling shutter.

Phantom VEO-640S

Mark Goulding of Adept Turnkey and Phil Taylor of Vision Research will be on hand to give us a general overview of the cameras and to put them through their paces. They will also have available for us the more familiar Flex4K.

Phantom Flex4K-GS

Adept Turnkey are agents for the new Hive Lighting range of plasma lights and will have on show the Wasp 1000 Plasma Par. Fifty feet away at full spot the Wasp will provide f16 at 800 ISO and at full flood, f4/5.6 - sounds perfect for a Flex4K ACS demo.

Make a note in your diary for Thursday June 15th. HQ doors (address below) will open at 6pm with the presentation kicking off at around 6:40pm.

Ever Thought About Applying For Accreditation?

Here's a few things to consider:

1. I am a current financial member of the Australian Cinematographers Society. Members with fees in arrears may not apply.
2. I have been a Cinematographer member (Formerly Full member) of the ACS for the past three years and have been working full time as a cinematographer for a minimum of 8 years.
3. I will contact my State Branch President in sufficient time to obtain assessment of the suitability of my submission prior to the material being sent to the National ACS Accreditation Panel by the deadline.
4. I will be able to submit all material within the specified dates for submission, currently being July 1st to July 31st and understand material will NOT be accepted after this date. My material is of high quality and will meet the media requirements.
5. I will include all required documentation and signed forms with my submission.
6. I will include payment with my submission.
7. I am aware that should I get my letters, the Society will be calling on me and will expect my involvement in things like Awards judging, Accreditation assessments, maybe being on my Branch committee or being involved Nationally on the Executive or on a sub committee. I understand that gaining my letters is indeed a privilege and the highest honour the Society can bestow on me but in turn I know the Society expects and indeed needs my involvement.
