Powering up post production

Make every lens smart. An LDT records frame-by-frame human-readable focus, iris and zoom information from any lens directly into the RAW camera files. No additional motors required.

Key benefits for Post Production

The LDT range

Recording Data for Post Production

The LDT connects to the Preston MDR or DXL Cmotion FIZ module.
It takes the motor positions and translates this into real lens values. These values are then recorded either in the camera raw files or on an SD card in the device itself.

Injection Recording

Injection Recording

– Lens tables made on the LDT or in camera
– Data is sent directly into the camera RAW file headers

Internal Recording

Internal Recording

– Lens tables made on the LDT
– Data is recorded on an SD card in the device

Lense agnostic

Lense agnostic

The LDT system is designed to work with any lens by using information from the follow focus motors already mounted to the lens.
