About

An interview from the 2018 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Randy Wedick of Band Pro Film & Digital. For over 30 years Band Pro has provided the best new products and solutions for professional cinematographers around the world. Their team actively develops new acquisition technology and have helped create key innovations such as IB/E Raptor primes, Leica Summilux-C and Summicron-C lenses, Zeiss DigiPrime lenses, and many more. With offices in Atlanta, Burbank, New York City, Munich, and Tel Aviv, Band Pro offers the highest level of knowledge and expertise along with the finest equipment and accessories available.

In this interview Randy shows us a preview of the IB/E Smartfinder Pro,
a new Director’s Viewfinder for lenses from S35 to Full Format and up to 65mm format. The Smartfinder Pro uses IB/E’s UMS Universal Mount System. The groundglass concept is just like a traditional, optical Director’s Finder, however you attach an iPhone behind the groundglass. The iPhone camera focuses through 4 IB/E optical elements onto the groundglass, and you view the image on the screen of your iPhone.

This gives you the ability to frame up shots and then share those frames with metadata such as GPS Coords, Positional Data, and Framing to mimic shots later on.
