Hi Gang! We recently mentioned getting back into the Cine RT’s Beta LCS Focus Tracking Menu to do some refinements and we wanted to give you an update. We’ve been playing with a new setting called “Multi-Ping”. Shane (our new project manager/programmer/former 1st AC) and I shot some quick autofocus tests last week of an early version of Multi-Ping working with the ARRI Hi-5 and wanted to share.
We opted to shoot it quite close and mostly wide open on a 47mm Signature Prime and were very happy with the performance of both the new setting and the motor response and speed of the ARRI cforce mini RF motor.
