Through the generosity of our supporters who are donating very valuable products, we will once again hold our DCS Internet Silent Auction to coincide with NAB. It is a great way for our supporters to make you aware of their new products while giving members a chance to get great deals, and at the same time help finance the Digital Cinema Society.
Here’s how it will work: All current DCS members are welcome to e-mail us bids on the products described on the following list, (plus any additions that may be donated.) Bidding will end promptly with the close of NAB 2023 at 2:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) Wednesday, April 19th, and the winners will be notified shortly thereafter. In most cases the companies making the donations have elected to ship the products directly, so they will be given the winners’ contact details and arrange delivery. As with our dues collection, payment for the silent auction prizes will be via Paypal or check in US funds sent to us prior to pickup or shipping. Buyers are responsible for the actual cost of shipping, if any, as well as all import/export taxes that may be due. If the bid price fails to reach the listed minimum, the item will be added to our next raffle of SWAG and given away at an appropriate DCS event. SO WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?

Pairing the normal focal length with a complex Distagon optical concept and fast f/1.4 maximum aperture provides a great combination of sharpness, clarity, and shooting flexibility. The optical design incorporates four anomalous partial dispersion elements and one aspherical element to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for notable clarity and sharpness throughout the aperture range. An enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to significantly reduce ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in difficult lighting conditions. The manual focus design is complemented by a rubberized focus ring for fine-tuned, precise control over your focus position. Additionally, Milvus-series lenses also feature an equally aesthetic and durable frosted, anodized metal lens-barrel surface along with a weather-sealed construction to protect against dust and moisture.

Item #5 — BB&S Compact Fresnel Bi-Color LED Light
The Compact Fresnel Light (CFL) is a new type of LED for studio, stage and remote lighting. With a 5.5” footprint, these versatile LED powerhouses draw just 40 Watts yet produce up to 2900-lumen output at 96 TLCI (Bicolor). (Tunable from 2700 to 5600 kelvin). The CFL has a smart ring-controlled focus system zooming from 12° to 52° degrees that is manually adjustable by turning the ring on the fixture. It outputs a hard-shadow rendering beam that fades from 100% at center to 50% at the edges, so it is good for mixing and overlapping with other lights while eliminating blinding glare. Beamlight fixtures can be used with either an optional portable Bi-Color driver/dimmer which comes with a 4-Pin XLR dTap cable or with DMX512/RDM with the optional 4-Way Controller that can control two Bi-Color units. The BB&S engineers designed the CFL to run silent due to an effective heat dissipation rear section that eliminates a cooling fan and thereby produces no audible noise on set (completely silent ) To find out more: https://www.bbslighting.com/collections/compact-beamlight/products/compact-fresnel-bi-color-led-light
