The new Blackmagic Design Ursa Mini Pro G2 camera with more off-speed options


I t’s mid-summer and time to look back at some of the winners from our Tech Innovation Awards 2019. You saw the nominations, the shortlist, the winner announcements, the presentations etc, but we thought you might want to know why the winners, well, won. This issue, we dig a little deeper into Red’s Gemini S35 sensor, which won in our Capture category, Panavision’s Light Iron Color 2, which came top in the Colour Science category, and the innovative Arri Rental’s DNA lens programme, which scooped the Optics award. We also interrupted DOP Stuart Dryburgh while he was enjoying a film festival in north Portugal to ask him how he shot Men in Black: International – it’s all about the night shoots in London and the medina market shoots in Morocco. By contrast we caught up with an American policeman in an ITV drama, Wild Bill , an episodic shot, it turns out, in wild Lincolnshire with the Sony Venice camera. We also have the latest sports capture news and reviews from Blackmagic Design with the latest iteration of its Ursa Mini Pro, called simply G2 – as in generation 2. Enjoy!
