Introducing Chromatte and the new Reflecmedia MicroLite.
MicroLite is a lightweight adjustable cradle which allows a Reflecmedia LiteRing to be attached to almost any digital still camera or DV palmcorder, without the need for further lens adapters. The Microlite works excellent with smaller lens sizes such as those found on the popular Canon HV20, and the Sony SR-12.
But why Reflecmedia?
A Standard Green Screen Set-up..
“The preferred methods involve being able to light the background and the subject separately. If your subject is human and framed waist-up or looser, this can require between six and twelve feet between your subject and the background. With tight framing it may be possible to evenly light the background with just one broad source. Typically two or more lights are used to light the green screen but in this example the light is a single Omni-light, floor-mounted on a Big-foot & Scissor mount, fitted with a 300W lamp and two sheets of diffusion clipped across its barn doors. The diffusion in this case was mostly used to lower the output of the light, not just diffuse it. A sheet of neutral density gel paired with a sheet of diffusion would have had similar results.” – Lowel EDU
The Benifits of Reflecmedia..
Chromatte is a fabric designed specifically for use as a background for chroma key production. Unlike conventional chroma key fabrics that are usually blue or green in colour, in ambient light Chromatte is grey to the eye. The fabric contains millions of tiny glass beads that act as reflectors: when any light – such as the directional light from Reflecmedia’s lens-mounted LiteRing – hits the fabric, it is returned on the same path back into the camera’s lens. This retro-reflectice process means the camera ‘sees’ the apparently grey fabric as a perfectly even blue or green background.
For camcorders with filter sizes larger than 52mm, see the original Reflecmedia system. The 8×8 backed curtain system previously sold for over $3500! Now a complete system can be had for less than $1600! Amazing!
