Cinematography Electronics Cinetape Measure

This small, rugged, lightweight, and quiet ultrasonic range finder is compatible with all lenses and cameras. Providing continuous measurements this rangefinder saves time making even the subtleset of movements easy to follow, reducing the need for retakes.

This versatile ultrasonic system continuously calculates the distance between a subject and the camera’s film-plane. By continuously measuring distance during a shot, small or subtle subject movements are no longer a problem. With non-stop measurements, focusing a camera lens is simplified which saves time, avoids retakes and reduces production costs.

The main components of our system are the CINETAPE MEASURE CONTROL and the SENSOR ASSEMBLY. The control displays accurate distance measurements from the constant stream of data that is received by the sensors. Our CINETAPE MEASURE System is a small, rugged, lightweight, and quiet ultrasonic range finder. It is compatible with all lenses, film cameras and video cameras.
