What’s New at Affiliated:
Vintage Kowa FF Lenses (Ancient Optics/TLS):
Vintage Kowa FF lenses are extremely rare and unique…Not to be confused with their S35 Cine Prominar cousins. Originally made for a leaf shutter SLR from 1968-1974, these Kowa lenses hid in the shadows for decades.
This glass has a lovely gold and purple flare. They are all sharp in the center with a gentle focus fall off to the corners. Bokeh is soft, pleasant, and circular at all stops thanks to the 14-blade iris. The brilliant engineers at TLS also improved the minimum close focus distance on every focal length. Each lens from 19mm to 200mm safely covers Arri Alexa LF open gate sensors without vignette. The lenses have rock solid TLS cam systems, 110mm fronts, 300-degree focus rotation, and standard 0.8 focus and iris gears.
T4(19mm ), T3.6(28mm), T2.9(35mm), T1.9(50mm), T3.6(100mm), T4(135mm), T4(200mm)

DMX for Plus LiteMats with LiteDimmer Plus DC200 DMX, Duo:
When the “Plus” series of Lite Mats were introduced, at times it became an issue that they were without a digital communication protocol. The Duo LiteDimmer has an integrated wireless radio that acts as both a transmitter and a receiver that provides DMX control for “Plus” Litemats.

Wag Flags 101:
They were being requested, but we didn’t know what they were so we ordered some to see for ourselves:
- Perfect for confined spaces, homes, and areas where it is difficult to build a complete overhead frame
- Quick build and the ability to unravel the amount of material needed to cover the space
(i.e. user is not forced to build a full 8’ x 8’ frame for a smaller area)
- Used as a quick teaser or cutter
- 6’ or 8’ Military grade 304 stainless steel frame
- Each kit contains 2 frames (6’ or 8’) and sewn materials including 1 x Black Ripstop, 1 x Silent ¼ Grid, 1 x Black Commando Cloth.

Looking for Love: The Arri Orbiter
ARRI thought that the Orbiter, “an ultra-bright, and directional LED fixture” would be an become an instant lighting staple and not a specialty item that infrequently goes out. Up to now, at least for us, that has not been the case. So, why is this intriguing, and seemingly versatile lighting system, sitting on the shelf collecting dust?
Perhaps it is the cost; a P.M. told us that he was quoted a price of $800/day, no discount.
Fortunately, on any day a customer takes a package truck, we are content enough that we can cut you a break on an Orbiter, or even two, making them affordable for you to try and evaluate.

If you are just after odds and sods our prices and gear are pretty well comparable to the competition, but our main thrust has always been toward Equipment Package Trucks, with Generator, in combination with Complete Camera Packages. AE’s Combo Pricing was first conceived shortly after camera went all digital, as it was foreseeable and inevitable that anyone could, and it seems now everyone is, in the camera and lens, ownership and rental business. Although our rationale for creating Combos was to provide an incentive that would keep AE camera packages going out the door, the way they were structured, where we knocked a few dollars off multiple items including, Package Trucks, Generator, Camera Body, Prime Lenses, and Camera Accessories, it has not always proved clear to customers what they were actually saving. So, because it is AE camera gear that we are actually trying to keep busy we have taken all those smidgeons and applied them only to the rental price of our camera bodies when used in a Combo.
From here on, if you rent an AE Equipment Package Truck with an AE Camera Package (Camera Body, Set of Prime Lenses, Support, and Accessories) the ARRI Alexa Mini or ARRI LF (not Mini LF) Camera Body rate (one body/job) will only cost $667/day.
ARRI Alexa Mini/LF: $667/day
