Zacuto Announces New Lens Support System For Canon CP-N and Zeiss CP Lenses

Zacuto announced a new lens support system for Canon CP-N and Zeiss CP lenses:

You’ve never seen lens supports like these! Slide the ‘hook’ rod mount under your lens and attach the four included ‘foot’ connectors to your Canon cinema primes or Zeiss CP.2 lenses. The hook and foot snap into place seamlessly as you connect your lens to your camera for a stable, elegant lens support solution. No more camera twisting on a baseplate or rocking when you pull focus. Quickly and easily change lenses and adjust for different cameras.

No Samyang Auto-Focus Lens To Be Announced Tomorrow

Samyang

I’ve speculated that Samyang tomorrow would announce the rumored 35mm auto-focus lens. Nope. According to Samyang Asia’s Facebook page there is no AF lens on the horizon. As you can see in the pic above

No autofocus, autofocus is rumours, fake news

That’s a pity. But I am pretty sure the 10mm lens will be announced tomorrow.

Canon Professional Services Program Announces New Cinema Membership Level in Canon’s CPS Program

CPS Cinema and Enterprise CPS Levels are Introduced to Support the Unique Needs of Imaging Professionals

MELVILLE, N.Y., March 19, 2014 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today that the Canon Professional Services (CPS) program has been expanded and now provides support for all Cinema EOS products. Created over 30 years ago to support professional film photographers, CPS has evolved through the years to keep pace with the changing needs of the modern imaging professional. A new CPS Cinema level has been added to the current Silver, Gold and Platinum levels continuing Canon’s commitment to support professional imaging customers as their needs grow and expand.

CPS Cinema Membership provides members with benefits like maintenance services, which are valuable for filmmakers who use their cinema equipment in all types of elements, repair discounts, and equipment evaluation loans, ideal for cinematographers looking to test out new equipment. In addition, members receive Canon Live Learning discounts, access to a 24/7 Live Exclusive Member Hotline, as well as a range of other benefits. CPS Cinema members receive expedited two-business day turnaround on their registered products at Canon Service and Support centers located in Hollywood, CA, and Ridgefield Park, NJ, with more locations to be added in the future. Additionally, CPS Cinema members can receive on-site Clean & Check Service by trained Canon CPS service and support professionals at select trade shows such as the 2014 National Association of Broadcasters Show (NAB), taking place April 7th-10th at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“CPS is such an important part of Canon’s award-winning service and support offering. Now with the success and rapid growth of our Cinema EOS products we felt it was time that cinema professionals were also provided with a level of CPS support that is able to address their unique needs,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “Following in the tradition of exceptional service and support, CPS Cinema enhances our commitment to supporting imaging professionals.”

To become a CPS Cinema member a customer needs to own just one Cinema Zoom lens, or one of the following Cinema EOS cameras: the EOS C300, EOS C500, or EOS-1D C. Members will also receive benefits on all other qualified products entered in their CPS account. Annual membership for CPS Cinema is $1,000.
