Tiffen International Announce BVE Preview

Tiffen International, a leading manufacturer and supplier of photographic filters and lens accessories, is presenting the latest innovations of its extensive range of camera support and accessory equipment at BVE 2011.
Products on show feature Tiffen optical filters for the latest cameras, new Steadicam rigs, Transvideo monitors and lightweight prompters from Listec Video as well as Lowel lighting.
BVE 2011 is the event chosen for the first public UK showing of some exciting new Steadicam rigs. The new stabilisers include the lightweight Zephyr system which supports camera loads of up to 11 kegs and offers unique control over the feel of the rig with features usually only found on high-end models. These include a new tool-free gimbal, HD ready out of the box, fully adjustable lower sled for inertial and dynamic balance, side loading stage and a tool-free Iso-Elastic arm, requiring only ounces of force to support the unit throughout its huge boom range.
The new Steadicam Scout offers a precise and versatile lightweight system in an affordable package. Supporting up to 8 kegs, the Scout features the same side loading stage from the Zephyr series, a new vase design for adjusting dynamic and inertial balance and the same tool-free performance from its Iso-Elastic arm.
BVE is also the first opportunity to see the new Steadicam Phantom, a low cost big rig that performs just like the top-of-the-range Ultra2. Working with loads up to 20 kg it includes two posts, the Ultra2 tilt stage, an inertially adjustable sled, G-70 arm and a SD monitor, upgradeable to a high definition monitor and a motorised stage. Also showing are the Tango, which delivers the long-sought floor to ceiling boom range with lateral range and Steadicam stabilisation and the Smoothee that steadies iPhones and other smartphone videos.
Tiffen is also presenting its optical filters that include popular IR, UV and ND solutions that for the latest cameras. Supplementary to the range of over 2000 effects filters, these are specifically designed to block infrared and ultraviolet light polluting images captured by the modern CMOS image senors. There are experts on hand to offer advice and ensure you can reliably capture the image you want.
On the Tiffen stand, the London Filter Company is showing its rental range including Transvideo monitors and DSLR shooting kits. LFC also offers the full range of Tiffen filters. Aside from optical filters Tiffen is also showing the V2 version of its Dfx software that offers digital representation of its glass filters for use with digital images. It provides pre-visualisation of specifically named, trademarked filters using terminology that refers to physical cinematography and photography in a software suite. Dfx is available as a standalone application or as a plug-in for popular programmes including Photoshop.
Newcomer to the Tiffen range, Listec Video will also be presenting its lightweight prompters for the first time in the UK. With a new approach to prompter design, these offer flexible performance in a lightweight portable package.
The highly portable Lowel Lighting range, including the Blender LED light, can be seen on the ProKit stand (H.14).
