Peter Slanksky professor at the HFF School was the host who proudly showed the impressive facilities of the school. From theaters to the studios, HFF offers one the most complete conditions film studies.
The gathering began on Friday evening with the presentation of the EDC 16 camera prototype by ARRI. Michael Koppetz from the Research & Development department of ARRI introduced the modified AMIRA. The essential modification of the camera is on the area of the image capture on the full size sensor. Instead of using the whole area of the sensor it is only used one part in the center. So by using a small area allows the possibility to use 16mm lenses. In this particular aspect its of great advantage of many schools that need to give some usage to their classic 16mm zooms and prime lenses. Despite the small area used of the sensor the output is still HD 1920x1080 resolution. The cost of the camera body is estimated of 15000 euros.
