Panavision Previews New Lightweight Recorder

"A new dockable recorder for Panavision’s Genesis Super 35 Digital Cinematography Camera System, which reduces the weight of the Genesis camera to equal the lightest 35mm sound camera, received its first public preview at IBC 2007 in Amsterdam on the IBC Big Screen.

The SSR-1 has been designed to reduce the camera’s weight to roughly the same as the lightest 35mm film sound cameras. Weighing only 2.5 kilos (5.5 lbs.) the Genesis SSR-1 recorder is intended for use in handheld, Steadicam and similar shooting situations."
