Bexel Adds 4K Gear to Rental Inventory for Cine Gear Expo

At the Cine Gear Expo, taking place today and tomorrow at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City, Bexel is showcasing several additions to its rental inventory, including Sony F5, Sony F55, Canon C300, and Fujinon Cabrio lenses.

Sony F55 and F5 CineAlta 4K HD Camcorders offer superb dynamic range, the widest color gamut, and pristine image quality whether you shoot in HD, 2K, or 4K. The Sony 4K image sensor incorporates an electronic global shutter on the F55. Rental includes an on-board recorder for two SxS Pro+ Cards. With the optional AXS-R5 recorder, users can make the jump to precise 16-bit Linear RAW in both 2K and 4K.

The Canon EOS C300 Camera with Complete EF Lens Package is a feature-rich HD motion picture system designed to accommodate any shooting setup, from run-and-gun to elaborate rigs. Rental packages are complete with camera body, Movcam C300 shoulder kit, two lenses (Canon EF 16-35 wide angle and 24-70mm regular lens), Movcam follow focus and Anton/Bauer power. Canon EF 70-200mm telephoto lens and Matte Boxes are available.

Fujinon Cabrio PL Lenses are now in stock for the Sony F5 and F55 cameras. These PL lenses are ideal for quick set-up. We have both the 19-90mm and 30-300mm lenses for all our cameras.

“We are committed to investing in the advancing camera and lens technology that broadcasters need, and provide the expertise and equipment choices that satisfy a variety of shooters integrating HD video and cinema-style options,” says Tom Dickinson, CTO of Bexel. “To do that, we are broadening our PL-mount inventory. The Sony F55 and F5 are giving our clients great shots that look like film, and the ability to be more creative, particularly when paired with the Fujinon Cabrio PL lenses. We also have a whole range of customers benefitting from the flexibility and affordability that the EF-mount Canon EOS C300s offer in augmenting a variety of video productions.”

Cine Gear Expo New York also gives Bexel the opportunity to introduce its New Jersey hub, and make the broadcast community aware of the company’s increased services, as well as the vast inventory that Bexel now has available on both coasts.

The new Secaucus facility marks a significant expansion for the company. The large, modern space located near the Newark International Airport offers robust systems for rental or purchase, regional engineering support, large staging areas and loading docks, and warehouse-sized storage.

Bexel’s New Jersey team recently supported the broadcasts for the entire run of the 2013 US Open, one of the longer sporting events on the company’s roster, and is currently preparing for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.

“Secaucus is a convenient and familiar spot, and we secured a beautiful space that will help us serve our customers better,” adds Dickinson. “The new facility nearly triples the size of the former Manhattan Bexel operation.”

In addition to the Secaucus location, Bexel hubs are set up in Dallas, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, complemented by regional sales offices in Atlanta and Sao Paulo, Brazil.

At the show, Bexel will be offering an exclusive giveaway for Cine Gear Expo attendees. Visit Bexel at Booth 159 to enter your name for your chance to win a Petrol Bag. Drawing will take place on September 28.
