Cine Gear Expo, which was supposed to take place this fall, was cancelled altogether. The reason is not surprising at all – like all events this year, it was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s not like DJI to do anything quietly, really. Whenever they introduce a new product, they always seem to make a big fuss over everything with flashy on-stage presentations and a lot of hype. But during CineGear 2019, they’ve quietly introduced both a new DJI Storm drone as well as a new cinematography service.
Chinese lens manufacturer Vazen has brought some rather interesting new lenses to the Cine Gear Expo. Spotted by Newsshooter, there appear to be three lenses coming at 28mm, 40mm and 65mm focal lengths, each having a 1.8x anamorphic effect. And they’re made for Micro Four Thirds cameras with 4:3 sensors (like the Panasonic GH5). With 1.8x squeeze they allow you to shoot 2.39:1 footage on a 4:3 sensor.
