Description

Join us for our special Gear Up: Advances in High-Speed Image Capture in partnership with Digital Cinema Society in Chicago!

On August 27, we're inviting you to a special evening event dedicated to high-speed imaging and lighting technology, including the full Phantom lineup and the new Phantom Onyx. Proper lighting is very important when shooting high-speed, so some of the latest flicker-free lighting fixtures will be on display in our showroom. Attendees are encouraged to go hands-on with all the gear and get their questions answered by AbelCine tech specialists. Snacks and refreshments will be served.

Additionally, the event will feature a presentation by Digital Cinema Society founder James Mathers, with tips and techniques on how to avoid flicker when shooting at high frame rates, followed by a special panel with guest filmmakers talking about their practical experiences shooting high-speed.
