After a 600-Watt light from Aputure and a 700 Watt from Maxima, Nanlight is introducing a 1200 Watt beast – the Evoke 1200 LED Spot Light. And it truly is a beast. Under the square body lies a 1200 Watt COB LED. It will offer either daylight (6500K) or tungsten (To be announced) flavors. While you probably want the light to be Bi-color, you have to remember that with Bicolor lights each of the temperatures gets half the surface. The Evoke 1200 is using the entire LED chip. As with most COB lights, this light has a 120 degrees angle and a proprietary modifier mount.
For me, the separation between SmallHD and Atomos was pretty clear. Atomos made recording monitors (mostly) and SmallHD made monitors that do not record. This is changing with Atomos latest Announcement, the Atomos Shinobi. The Atomos Shinobi is a 5.2″ on camera monitor that has (give or take) all the fancy features that the Atomos Ninja V has, sans internal recording and $300.
Sorry, completely skipped this one in the last Sigma press event post. I was distracted by full frame freaking Foveon! But that’s not all they’ve mentioned today. Sigma has now officially announced the five new “Global Vision” lenses (that’s the collective name for their Art, Sport & Contemporary lenses) that leaked last week.
