I have great news. We’ve received our first batch of Atomos Shogun 7” monitor and 4K video recorders. This has been a very hotly anticipated product. It offers 4K recording via HDMI and 1080p recording up to 120 frames per second. It is a naturally perfect match for the Sony A7s as well as the Panasonic GH4.
My first wave of pre-order customers already have theirs in there hands. I have a few more pre-orders to fill and then I’ll have them on the shelf ready for sale or rental. Post by Eric C. Petrie
Look what i got in-stock today. The newest generation of Sony’s XQD media cards are in stock on my shelf. Of course these media cards are required for the new Sony FS7 digital cinema camera. Now that i have the cards i just need a camera to put them in. The cameras should be in-stock soon. I’m still filling back orders… slowly. By the way, currently the price on the XQD cards are: $799 for a 128GB, $359 for a 64GB, and $165 for a 32GB. With the FS7 in 4K at 30p each minute of footage equals 3GB of data. So a 128GB card will give you about 45 minutes of footage. To pre-order your FS7 please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 503-598-9142 . Post by Eric C. Petrie
From the “better late then never” department I now officially have the DJI Ronin stabilization system in-stock. The Ronin offers an impressive payload capacity to the dollar ratio. It can handle weights up to about 15 pounds and only costs $2,999. You can rent it today for $300 a day or $300 for a Friday-Monday weekend. Plus I’ll credit the $300 towards a future purchase of a similar item.
I’m also the Northwest’s only MoVI dealer. The MoVI M5 was recently lowered in price to $3,995 and the M10 is only $7,995. The MoVI M10 rents for $500 for 1 day, including set-up and tutorial, and $400 for each day after that. As always, a days rental can be 100% credited towards a future purchase of a similar item.

The Redrock Micro One Man Crew electronic slider has been a very hotly anticipated product around here. It was first teased about a year ago but the launch was pushed back. Then, at NAB 2014, RRM began to ship them more regularly. The demand was so high that they were chronically backordered for 4-6 weeks. That is, until recently. RRM has ramped up production to meet the demand. That means that we are now able to have one on our demo floor full time. We have the RRM One Man Crew motorized slider ready for your to evaluate today. Plus it’s in stock, ready for you to buy. We’re currently selling it for $1,485.
The RRM OMC is a parabolic slider. It features a slight curve in the track. Unlike a straight slider, the curve allows for the slider to move, completely unmanned, and keep the exact same distance from the subject though out the full range of the track. This means there is no need to pull focus during the move because your focus distance never changes. The motor is incredibly versatile. It run as fast as 12 seconds end-to-end, or as slow as 8 hours in the time laps mode. The track is 36” in length and can support a camera load of up to 20lbs. Come in and play with the One Man Crew today or take it out on an evaluation. Use it on your shoot in your circumstances with your camera. Its the best way to decide if a piece of gear is really going to work for you.

Canon recently released the XA20, the successor to the very popular XA10. The XA20 picks right up where the previous model left off. It still has the same great 1080p 1/3″ CMOS sensor that produces incredibly detailed images, still has the handy detachable top handle with balanced 2-channel XLR inputs, and still has the accurate touch-screen focusing and exposure control. They’ve made some great changes based on user feedback. The HDMI port is now in a logical spot on the back-top instead of on the bottom. It has an incredible 20x lens that starts off very wide (3.6mm or 28mm equ.) and stays very bright (f/2.8 at long end). It now has a built-in lens cap, which seems silly until you try working with the old lens cap. They’ve added Wi-Fi for control and file transfer. Lastly it now features a maximum 35mbps second recording (instead of 24mbps). I remember 3 years ago you couldn’t get 35mbps for less then $4,000, now we’ve got it in the palm of our hands. This incredible little camera is in-stock at Professional Video now. Oh, one more thing. We’re including a free 32GB SDHC card for a very limited time.
