Ergonomics

CION was designed to be comfortable, convenient and totally
flexible for any shooting environment. A contoured shoulder pad
fits comfortably to your shoulder for hand held use. An included top handle made of high grade aluminum and wood features an integrated LANC start/stop button. The handle base itself uses a standard 15mm rod and through hole to allow the additional mounting of third party accessories.

Optical Low Pass Filter and
IR Cut Filter

An integrated OLPF (Optical Low-Pass Filter) reduces unwanted moiré effects while still retaining vital image detail.

The Infra-red cut filter produces high quality colors within the image by
blocking unwanted light wavelengths.

PL Lens Mount

PL mount lenses are the industry standard for cinema and professional production cameras, and are widely available the world-over. In addition, CION’s lens mount has been designed to be removable so third parties may develop mounts for other lens types.

CION’s considered design brings ease of operation to both field and studio based productions. For single users, set up and operation is intuitive and straightforward. For more complex productions camera operators, camera assistants and digital imaging technicians may all interact with CION without conflict. In such a scenario, the camera operator can use one monitor output for framing, the camera assistant another monitor output for judging focus and the digital imaging technician can use yet another monitor output as well as the web UI to configure the unit.

Connect and Configure

The LAN port at the rear of the CION camera brings a wealth of control to the field or studio; every feature is controllable remotely via a web browser with no proprietary software required. Using an easily set up IP address for the camera and utilizing a simple Ethernet cable you can connect to any laptop on any platform and use a web browser to communicate directly with your CION camera. A video feed has also been included to assist with remote or multi-camera scenarios. Multi-camera wireless control can be easily achieved with a standard WiFi access point, such as an Apple AirPort.

Total Camera Control

You’re able to adjust every camera parameter to suit your needs by either clicking on the section appropriate in the side bar of the browser or you can use the buttons in the window that reflect those found on the camera. You
have the freedom to work either way. You can see clearly the options available to each section; navigation is intuitive at every step.

Elegant Operations

All interface controls are found on the side of the camera facing the operator to provide easy single user functionality. The menu structure itself is elegant and free of cumbersome sub-menu navigation. Confidently dial settings with a robust selection knob that gives clear mechanical feedback as you adjust.

The integrated confidence monitor not only displays the menu information but also previews your real-time image, allowing independent operation.

LED VU meters are placed for easy and accurate audio monitoring. Control knobs for each audio channel allow adjustment of the input level. A headphone monitoring output and a headphone volume control knob are also provided.
