The new EZ series lenses from Angenieux are now available at B&H! This series of zoom lenses was designed from the ground up to be versatile, physically robust, and optically consistent. Currently, the line is based on two zooms, the EZ-1 30-90mm T2 and the EZ-2 15-40mm T2. These lenses offer a constant fast aperture throughout their zoom ranges, while providing Super 35mm image plane coverage. The EZ-1 and EZ-2 are also offered in lens packs, which include a swappable rear optical block.
Today, Sachtler announced its latest expansion to the popular Ace tripod line. The brand new Sachtler Ace XL systems will support larger payloads than the existing Ace L and Ace M tripod systems, up to 17.6 pounds. The increased capacity means that the Ace line will now support larger DSLR rigs or compact cinema cameras like Blackmagic Design’s URSA Mini/Mini Pro series, Sony’s FS series, Panasonic’s EVA-1, and Canon’s EOS C100/200/300 series.
If you’ve been following the latest goings-on in the video gear market, the Fujinon MK zoom lenses have probably not escaped your gaze. Originally announced in February, Fujifilm declared that the MK lenses would offer features from both its ENG and cinema lens lines. In January, I was beckoned into a tiny meeting room, here at the B&H offices, to see a pre-production version of what would be the 18-55mm lens, and learn about the forthcoming 50-135mm sibling.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
