NEBTEK MicroLite HD Wireless Monitoring
We now stock the versatile NEBTEK transmitter/receiver system. Able to handle HD signal without a hitch, this handy accessory has a range of 1/2 a mile. Another major perk of the microLite HD is the seemingly limitless ergonomic mounting options. The transmitter can easily be secured to a camera via hot shoe or Noga arm. The receiver, which stays with the viewing monitor, has myriad ways in which it can be secured.
Everything you could ask for in the world of wireless HD monitoring is answered with the NEBTEK microLite HD. Now available to rent at Hand Held Films
. Codex System
The Codex Onboard can record uncompressed or wavelet cinema quality HD material – plus audio and metadata – onto a single, removable data pack. When shooting is done, it offloads material much faster than real-time – typically three to five times faster. The Onboard delivers immediate full-frame playback and review as video. It also delivers reference and viewing files over a network for full on-set quality control. Used with a Codex Media Station, it can deliver shots in multiple industry-standard formats – these can be generated on-the-fly for editing systems to use without importing.
The Onboard records using uncompressed or visually lossless wavelet compression, with compression ratios from 3:1 to 8:1. It also significantly reduces the storage requirements of a production. Graphics cards are available upon request. Please contact rentals
Alexa, Alexa Plus and Alexa Studio
The Arri ALEXA has a 3.5K CMOS Imager which provides optimum oversampling for either a 2K or 1920 X 1080 HD image. Simultaneously records to Apple QuickTime/ProRes files, output uncompressed HD video or uncompressed ARRIRAW data to external recorders.
As the best recording media for the QuickTime/ProRes files, ARRI has chosen SxS cards because of their high data throughput. Two SxS cards fit into a module on the camera's left side for convenient on-board recording and are hot-swappable.
At the pinnacle of the range is the ALEXA Studio, featuring a quiet, adjustable mirror shutter and an optical viewfinder that provides a real-time, high contrast image with true colors. The Studio is a direct response to cinematographers’ requests for a camera that perfectly combines cutting edge digital image-making with traditional elements of the film cameras they have known and trusted for generations.
Another key feature of the ALEXA Studio is its 4:3 sensor, which makes it the only digital camera (aside from the ARRIFLEX D-21) to boast true anamorphic capability. Anamorphic lenses create a unique, cinematic look that has been appreciated by directors and cinematographers for over half a century, and cannot be created in post.
The ALEXA Plus is an upgrade to the ALEXA camera, adding built-in wireless remote control, the ARRI Lens Data System (LDS), an additional MON OUT video output, an additional RS power output and built-in position and motion sensors. Both ALEXA and ALEXA Plus share the same exceptional image performance, are simple to operate, reliable in even the most extreme environments and versatile enough to cover a diverse range of workflow and budget requirements. The Alexa Plus is now available at Hand Held. Please contact rentals

New Hawk V-Lite Lenses
We are very proud to introduce the new Hawk V-Lite Anamorphic 2x lens set into the Hand Held Films inventory. Manufactured in Germany by Vantage Film these new lenses are guaranteed to redefine what it means to “shoot anamorphic” as they provide superior optics combined with an incredible lightweight feel. Every lens in the set has seen a weight reduction of 20% from their V-series brethren. Now, previously strenuous anamorphic applications such as Steadicam and Jib work are destined to be made as easy as they are with spherical primes. With their new design the Hawk V-Lites maintain a constant exposure and suffer no light-loss from close focus to infinity. Retuned focus gearing create a relative ease when pulling focus. The V-Lite set is optically matched to all other Hawk Anamorphic so there is no worry about differing image quality when bouncing between sets. The V-Lite set itself contains the following focal lengths: 28mm, 35mm, 45mm, 55mm, 65mm, 80mm, and 110mm. All focal lengths open to a T2.2 (except for the 110mm which open to a T3.)
We now also stock the 45-90mm Zoom and the 150-500mm Zoom lenses from Hawk.
We are the only place in New York where you can rent these revolutionary lenses.

The compact, 5K capable, and revolutionary Red Epic has arrived at Hand Held Films. While the camera is still in its early firmware, its initial features and capabilities are still impressive and promise exciting possibilities for the future.
From Red’s Product Description: In a package one third the size of a RED ONE, resides a 5K Mysterium-X™ sensor and a 27 layer ASIC, the most advanced processor of its type in the world, enabling EPIC to capture up to 120 frames per second, each frame at full 14MP resolution. EPIC is engineered to be a DSMC™ (Digital Still & Motion Camera), a camera that excels in both worlds … by design. Providing native dynamic range of over 13 stops and resolution that exceeds 35 mm motion picture film, this is the camera of the epoch. Add to that RED’s newly developed HDRx™ extended dynamic range technology and EPIC boasts an amazing dynamic range of up to 18 stops. Purpose-built for perfect multi-camera synchronization, EPIC comes to market at a time when 3D capture requires the sophistication of a new generation of innovative technology. EPIC, very simply, is epic.
The Cineped is composed of a base mounted on 4 precision wheels, 4 removable and adjustable legs, a telescopic post that can extend from 14”-22.5” and is topped by a large 3.5’ sliding plate which rotates 360°.
The combination of moves the operator can achieve is virtually endless as the sliding plate has a rotational capacity of 360° and 3.5 feet of sliding surface. When the 4 wheels are unlocked they permit a dolly line move on smooth surfaces.
