Cine Tape

Want to make your precision job as a focus puller easier? Grab yourself our Cine Tape Electronic Measuring System! 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. Not to mention, cutting down on your own stress!

The main components of the system are the CINE TAPE MEASURE CONTROL and the SENSOR ASSEMBLY. The control displays accurate distance measurements from the constant stream of data that is received by the sensors. The Cine Tape Measure System is a small, rugged, lightweight and is compatible with all lenses, film cameras and video cameras. In addition, the system is easy to set up and use, making it the first choice of professional filmmakers.

Pair this together with any of our Wireless Follow Focus options, such as the RT Motion!
