A PROVEN TRACK RECORD
QUALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISES
The Genesis® system works. To date,
Genesis has shot more features, television
and commercials than all other single-chip
digital cinema cameras combined. Genesis
has proven itself in a variety of difficult
locations, including tropical rain forests,
and in a host of different contemporary film
configurations: inside planes and cars,
handheld, on cranes and Steadicams™.
Many Genesis projects have mixed Genesis
footage with 35mm film, often in the same scene.
For the cinematographer, shooting with
Genesis means no compromise on depth
of field control, portability, sensitivity, dynamic
range or color. Genesis was designed as a
Panavision camera. It uses the same Primo®
lenses and the same accessories as our
film cameras.
As of the fall of 2007, Genesis features
include: Superman Returns , Flyboys ,
La Maison du Bonheur , Click , Scary Movie 4 ,
Déjà Vu , Apocalypto , Reign O’er Me, The
Tiger’s Tail , Grind House , Lookout, Next ,
The Ferryman , Balls of Fury, Condemned,
Slipstream, Asterix 3, Before the Devil Knows
You’re Dead , His Majesty Minor , I Now
Pronounce You Chuck and Larry , How About
You , Superbad , I Know Who Killed Me ,
The Comebacks , 21 , Le Deuxième Souffle ,
Tourist, Snow Buddies , Walk Hard , Addicted ,
Enfin Veuve , La Jeune Fille et les Loups ,
Get Smart , Taken , Disco , Christmas in
Wonderland , The King of Kung Fu , The
Heavy , Finder T.A.T.U , The Rocker and
The Other Boleyn Girl .
The Genesis sensor is true RGB, with the
same number of pixels for each of the three
primaries, unlike Bayer pattern cameras that
have half as many red or blue pixels as green
ones. Genesis was designed with digital intermediates in mind. It offers a unique gamma
and colorimetry that enables seamless intercutting with all 35mm film emulsions.
Genesis shutter angles range from 3.8° to 360°
and frame rates from 1 to 50fps. The 360°
shutter is new territory for film cinematographers,
yielding one more stop of exposure, with
increased motion blur. Thus the nominal
EI 400 sensitivity can be extended to
EI 1600 and above for low light situations,
by the judicious use of shutter and gain.
TWO WAYS TO RECORD
Genesis can record either to the new
Panavision Solid State Recorder SSR-1, or
to the Sony HDCAM-SR™ videotape recorder.
Both units dock directly (top or rear) to Genesis,
ensuring a totally portable package without
cables to external recording devices. Record
start/stop and format options for both
recording devices are directly controlled
from Genesis.
