The all-new CineRangeFinder is here! Gen 2 brings all-new features and hardware to the table with its new dual horn design, dual-core 32bit processor and much more!
Due to component shortages, we have limited stock and there may be further delays.
Due to a shortage of aluminium grades available in the UK. Our horns and extensions have been made using a grade that is not as good as the rest of the housing and has resulted in the anodising finish having some marks in it. This does not affect the performance of the device and is hardly noticeable.
The CineRangeFinder Gen2 brings all the features that you would expect from a high-end ultrasonic rangefinder and makes it affordable. Gone are the days of renting kit, the CineRangeFinder Gen2 is the most affordable, high-end range finder for focus pullers ever made and will fit nicely into your kit bag.
Designed to make your job more efficient, the CineRangeFiner Gen2 allows you to be more precise with hitting your focus resulting in fewer retakes and stress making your job as a focus puller easier and more rewarding.
Our in house electrical engineers have developed Generation 2 from the ground up. This has allowed us to add tonnes of new features to the CineRangeFinder and improve performance and user experience at the same time.
Our new dual-core 32bit processor allows for many new features that were not possible before such as being able to process the raw signal data from our new custom sensor circuitry, adjust ultrasonic power levels over distance to improve long-range performance / stop false readings and provide a new web interface for advance setup and control of the CineRangeFinder.
ALL NEW SENSORS
Our new 40kHz ultrasonic transducers provide higher performance distance measuring while being well above the max human hearing of around 20kHz.
The dual horn design allows for separated transmission and receives sensors which not only improve max distance but also improve accuracy and narrows the pickup beam.
The additional horn extensions allow for an even narrower pickup pattern which is ideal for long lenses or cramped sets and locations.
ALL NEW CONTROL
With our new powerful dual-core 32bit processor and built-in WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, we are now able to provide advanced settings via our web interface that can be accessed via any WiFi or Bluetooth enabled devices such as your smartphone, tablet or laptop.
This new interface allows for changing settings such as the ultrasonic sensor power output, gain levels at different distances as well as fine-tune adjustments for calibration.
With a live view of the sensor data readout, you can also get a more in-depth look into how the CineRangeFinder is reading the location which can help debug issues like false readings. The ability to then change power output or gain can then mitigate these issues that ultrasonics use to face.
CineRangeFinder Gen2 will be released with early firmware that does not contain all features. We will be working with Gen2 users to make the software better over the coming months after release to fine-tune the operation of the device.
3rd party integration will come in the form of an optional wireless module that will enable LBUS and Serial data communication to work with wireless follow focus equipment.
