Cámara Millenium de Panavision

Millennium (1997) – The Panaflex Millennium is a sync-sound 35 mm motion picture camera. Where the Panavision Platinum was mostly an evolution and refinement of the original 1972 Panaflex, the Millennium is a totally new design, incorporating a new twin sprocket drum movement, major electronics revisions, and a general weight reduction from 24 to 17 lb (7.7 kg). The Millennium is capable of 3-50frame/s forward and reverse, though reverse running requires a reversing magazine, and it has a focal-plane shutter, the aperture angle of which can be adjusted electronically while the camera is running between 11.2° and 180° allowing for four stops of exposure ramping within a shot with no iris adjustment. All of the focus, iris, and zoom motor controls have been moved to the camera’s internal circuitry, removing the need for cumbersome external circuit boxes, and it has an integrated camera built into the lens light, allowing the  HYPERLINK “http://www.imdb.com/Glossary/F” \l “first_ac” 1st AC to see witness marks without having to physically look at the lens. It also has a brighter viewfinder than the Platinum, multiple run switches, and footage counters on either side of the camera for easier readings.

The Millennium continues the Panavision tradition of excellence in the design and manufacture of 35mm film cameras. It is fully compatible with previous Panaflex® camera systems and retains many of the most popular features. Designed to be the ultimate studio quiet camera, yet it is easily converted for Steadicam® use, video finder or video only applications. Many new features have been introduced to speed film production and extend the Panaflex® heritage.
