NEWS: Multi Turret – Three Lenses at Once on Your Camera
During NAB 2019, we met Ian Kerr that showed us his one-of-a-kind concept called the Multi Turret. It’s not indeed a “new” concept, as lens turret were very popular back in the Super 16mm film days. But nowadays, there is nothing similar in the market.
If you are not familiar with what a turret is, it’s three lenses attached to the camera at once. By turning the ring, you can quickly switch between lenses. For example, you can go from a 50mm prime lens to a compact zoom or a wide angle lens.
I remember shooting with a lens turret on an S16 Bolex H16 film camera when I was in film school. It is a fun memory and having the ability to switch lenses on the fly is a nice concept. In our digital age, nothing similar exists, until the Multi Turret.
