The End of an (DSLR) Era?

Is it time to put the traditional mirrored DSLRs out to pasture? The DSLRS have been the workhorse for generations of photographers: they work, work incredibly well and can be trusted to perform in all kinds of challenging environments. Why do we ask?

Bright Tangerine Announces New Camera Accessories

Bright Tangerine are marking NAB 2017 as their full venture into the camera accessories market. They are unveiling a host of new products, including armors with in/out interfaces for the ARRI Alexa Mini and RED camera range, a compact follow focus in the Revolvr Atom, as well as new lens supports and Titan Arm accessories. 

The most significant announcement from Bright Tangerine is their shell-like support for the ARRI Alexa Mini and RED cameras.

“These accessories will offer camera protection, triggering functions, multiple mounting points, signal splitting and powering options and a plethora of inputs and outputs.“

We’ll disclose more when we visit them at NAB for a catch-up video, but it looks as if these cages will offer further power and signal outputs (SDI, D tap) as well as top cheese plate, top handle, V-lock power module and 19mm and 15mm rod support.

They cling quite nicely to the CAD design cameras; it will be interesting to see how they address the rear media bay on the Alexa Mini.

Also on show will be the Revolvr Atom. Bright Tangerine released their full Revolvr follow-focus system earlier this year, with the Atom offering a more compact solution.

Off the back of their follow focus venture comes a new series of lens supports for 15mm and 19mm rod systems.

A small announcement at the bottom of their PR for NAB is a range of new twist and rod adapter accessories for the Bright Tangerine Titan Arm.

As a user of the Titan Arm, I warmly welcome this. I had already DIY-rigged mine to host 15mm studs, as it is much quicker and safer to use over ¼” 20 threads.

Lastly, there’s a new Blackhole Mini, designed for lenses ranging from 41-114mm diameter.

 

Bright Tangerine will be exhibiting all of this at NAB this weekend.

IRS back to hiring private collection agencies

We’ve posted several times about federal tax authorities’ on-again, off-again use of private tax collectors on contingency fees to collect back taxes. As with other varieties of law enforcement for profit in which the middleman is enabled to keep residual dollars, the practice seems to encourage the taking of a hard line against taxpayers, especially when the private collectors can use tactics and methods forbidden to government agents. Now, after a hiatus, the IRS is returning to the use of private collectors, a change in law for which Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) apparently deserve much of the credit, if credit is the right word [Alex Richards and Brad Wolverton, NerdWallet, earlier]
