The revolutionary lens – one of less than 20 of this type available throughout the world – offers film directors and producers new opportunities for creativity when shooting television commercials or other promotional videos. It can also considerably cut down on time when filming and in post production and therefore lowering costs.
A unique feature of the camera lens is its ability to provide a 360-degree rotating image on the camera – a facility usually only possible to achieve in post production editing. The length and flexibility of the camera lens also allows it to go around corners and get into places where it would take complicated and time consuming multi-camera set-ups to achieve.
Vishnu Gur, Executive Director at Rahbani Productions says: “The T-Rex Superscope is a lens system that can genuinely reach where other lenses fear to tread. It can rotate 360 degrees by motors at high speed but under control; pan, tilt and reach areas impossible to access with normal lenses, offers the widest range from 8mm super wide to macro and can be mounted on all 35mm, 16mm and digibeta cameras.
“Rahbani Productions is very proud to have brought this unique lens to the Middle East for the first time. It is the perfect tool to help enhance the creativity of the filming of television commercials enabling them to be shot faster thus saving both time and money for the directors. We estimate it could mean that saving in time of up to 25% on a typical TV commercial shoot.”
Mr Gur added that the fact it was a mechanical lens meant it could be used on all kinds of cameras greatly enhancing the flexibility and use of the T-Rex Superscope. It can greatly improve the quality of digital filming and mean that time consuming tracking and “Dutch Head” filming techniques are no longer required. Already in use in Europe and North America this will be the first time that such technology has come to the Middle East.
“This is part of the ongoing commitment of Rahbani Productions to bring the very latest and best equipment to Dubai which has become the emerging film capital of the Middle East,” added Mr Gur.
Rahbani Productions is offering film directors and creative directors the opportunity to see the lens in action for themselves at Rahbani’s headquarters in Dubai that are located on the Sheikh Zayed Road.
