Author Archive launches 'Depth Collective' to support photojournalism with the L16 camera

by on Mar.02, 2018, under Reviews, the company behind the innovative (if still in its infancy) Light L16 camera, has announced a new initiative called Depth Collective that aims to support photojournalists in their efforts at “pursuing the truth.” The initiative revolves around the L16 camera itself, which presents as an inconspicuous alternative to DSLRs for photojournalists who don’t want to be noticed.

“In the past few years,” the company said, “we’ve seen some photojournalists swap their DSLRs for iPhones to stay inconspicuous in their reporting—but they sacrifice quality to do so.” The L16 is a better option, says the company, thanks to its 16 individual camera modules, computational approach to photography, and 52MP max resolution.

Depth Collective members are given multiple perks under the membership, including a $500 discount off the L16 camera, early previews of new L16 updates and features, a shot at a bi-annual $5,000 reporting grant, plus a free Peak Design pouch and wrist strap.

Any visual artist or photojournalist can apply for Depth Collective membership, but they must have a UK or US address to which the L16 camera can be shipped—shipping elsewhere will start “soon,” but a specific date hasn’t been provided. Applicants must provide a link to their website or portfolio, as well as a brief statement about how the L16 camera will help them with their photojournalism. A full Depth Collective FAQ is available here.

MRMC unveil a smaller, lighter and cheaper version of its Bolt camera robot

by on Mar.01, 2018, under Reviews

Nikon-owned Mark Roberts Motion Control has announced that it will release a new smaller version of its Bolt camera robot in April this year. The original Bolt is claimed to be ‘most advanced high-speed camera robot in the world’, and the so-called Bolt Junior aims to continue that legacy in a package that weighs less than half as much, is more capable of working in confined spaces, and costs less as well.

Offering 6-axis movements, the Bolt JR will have an arm’s reach of 1.2m/3.94ft and will be able to travel at up to 3m/9.8ft per second when running on tracks… all while carrying 12kg of camera equipment. Using the company’s Flair software to control the robot, users will be able to program a series of movements that can be repeated exactly, again and again.

The robot arm can control lens settings as well as camera position, and can be used to create sophisticated timelapse sequences or follow camera movements created in animation software Maya. Finally, the company says the Bolt Jr takes only an hour to set up, and because it weighs only 110kg/242.5lbs, it is easy to transport as well.

The robot will go on show for the first time at the NAB exhibition in Las Vegas. For more information, visit the Bolt JR landing page.

Mark Roberts Motion Control Develops High-Speed Smaller Compact Version of Famous Bolt Cinebot

With a 50-year legacy developing highly effective camera robotics, Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC) have developed Bolt Junior (Bolt JR)

The MRMC Bolt JR has been developed in response to customer need for a smaller, compact, more cost-effective version of the highly regarded high-speed MRMC Bolt Cinebot – the fastest and most advanced motion control rig in the world.

This high-speed, compact 6-axes camera robot arm has been specially developed for film studios, photographic studios and for table-top work where studio space and budget are a key criterion. Being small and lightweight, Bolt JR is also easily maneuverable and transportable.

But make no mistake… Bolt JR may be short on size and stature but packs a mighty punch enabling impressive camera robotic capability. Available in pedestal and on-track versions, the Bolt JR cinebot has an arm reach of 1.2 metres and can move high-speed on-track at over 3m per second with a camera payload up to 12kg.

Camera robots can empower the cameraman, motion control operator and photography director to get the camera exactly where it needs to be for unique tight camera angles, special effects and to capture all the action and drama.

Controlling and programming Bolt JR is quick and straight- forward using the MRMC Flair system. Bolt JR with Flair offers a wide variety of automated functions and precision repeat functions. For complete flexibility, Bolt JR can also automate lighting, trigger synchronised SFX timecodes, rig movement or model movement.

Bolt JR is set to make its appearance this April at the NAB exhibition in Las Vegas where it will be demonstrated to over 100,000 show visitors alongside its big brother Bolt Cinebot. With the launch of Bolt JR, MRMC has launched a new dedicated Bolt JR website providing information, specification, video and product sheet for download. The Bolt JR website can be found at
