Megapixel Large Format Camera Night

We are bringing Pawel Achtel ACS to Adelaide as he's really keen to show us his amazing 9x7, 65 megapixel large format camera.

The ACHTEL 9×7 Digital Cinema Camera is designed specifically for VFX, VR, Giant Screen and IMAX® Cinema productions. It’s not here to replace Sony, ARRI or RED camera. It is designed to replace an array of ten of them.

It is designed to deliver unprecedented levels of sharpness, not attainable with traditional digital cinema cameras in a small and manageable package. It features  state-of-the-art Global Shutter, 4:3 aspect ratio, sensor featuring 65 Million photo-sites and delivers uncompressed 16-bit RAW footage up to 11 GB/s – approximately 30 times more than other high-end digital cinema cameras.

9×7 has almost twice the number of photo-sites found in 8K cameras, but it is the quality of the photo-sites that results in ultra-high resolution imagery never seen before. At the National ACS Awards held here in April Pawel won the 2022 Bob Miller ACS Technical & Innovation Achievement Award for innovative approach to designing and manufacturing the ACHTEL 9x7 camera, which possesses a level of performance which has never been possible before from a true Global Shutter sensor design.

Pawel is our Special Guest at our livestreaming State Awards night at the Rob Roy Hotel.

2022 42nd WA & SA Awards for Cinematography in Perth

We hope some of you can get over to Western Australia for the formal Awards presentation on Saturday October 29. It will be held at Frasers in Kings Park overlooking the impressive city of Perth and promises to be a great night. I can't give tax advice but you may be able to claim the trip as a tax deduction! I know a few SA members are heading over west so why not join them.
Stay well and stay safe. I hope to see you at our SA Awards event &/or our Megapixel camera night!
