CineTape 2

Introducing CINETAPE 2

The industry standard CINETAPE MEASURE has been redesigned and now includes built-in wireless communication. The new Cinematography Electronics CINETAPE 2, is smaller, lighter and faster. Same great features and quality, plus more.

CineTape 2 Control

The CINETAPE 2 Control is lighter and smaller than the original CINETAPE. It continuously calculates the distance between the camera’s film plane and the subject. All of the original CINETAPE features are included in the CINETAPE 2. In addition, we added a 2-way wireless radio, that communicates with our AIR Mobile 2 at a strong 500 foot range. We also added BlueTooth compatibility which connects the CINETAPE 2 to an iPhone, via the CineTape Air App. Our App adds many additional features to the new CINETAPE 2.

The CineTape 2 has a variety of camera mounting options. In addition to the dovetail-mounting slot, we have added two ¼-20 threaded mounting holes, 90 degrees apart. These holes and our new lightweight Mini Dogbone Bracket provide numerous attachment possibilities.

Sensor Horn Assembly

The HORN ASSEMBLY, using ultrasonic signals, sends measurement information to the CineTape 2 Control, which instantly displays the distance. The pan and tilt adjust/lock knobs make aiming the horns toward the subject, quick and easy. It can be mounted in numerous configurations with the attached combo stud.
