RedRock Micro Wirless Focus Control with Halo
From Redrock Micro:
 
Ability to track and focus on any subject with tap-to-focus ease wins four best of show awards at NAB introductions
 
Hollywood, CA and Dallas, TX - Redrock Micro, the recognized leader in affordable professional cinema accessories, today announced Halo, a system for video production that solves the challenge of accurate focus control by dynamically mapping and tracking subjects, and providing an easy to use interface for manually selecting or automatically tracking subjects for focus.
 

Introduced at NAB 2015, Halo was quickly recognized for its potential to shift the industry, creating intense buzz and earning three Best of Show awards.
 
Focus re-designed from the ground up
Incorporating the same technology cars use for collision detection and avoidance, the Halo Explorer creates a real-time scene map, combining pinpoint accuracy with up to 180 degrees of view. Artificial intelligence precisely identifies all your subjects (people and objects) and tracks their distance and location in real-time. The beautifully crafted user interface shows birds-eye view of all subjects, and enables anyone to tap-to-focus, or drag to follow focus with visual audible and haptic feedback. Halo becomes the technician, handling the intricacies of focus so operators can concentrate on the creative performance.
 
We often refer to this as our Avatar product, says James Hurd, Chief Revolutionary at Redrock Micro. We had to wait five years for technology to catch up so we could deliver a something that solves focus and does it cost-effectively. This quote references Director James Cameron's famous quip that he waited 10 years for technology to evolve before he was able to shoot the groundbreaking feature film Avatar.
 
Designed for today's production environments and creative shots
Production never has time for long setups, extra gear, or constant tweaking. The Halo Explorer is small and lightweight, and lives on your camera. There is virtually no setup or configuration, just power on, and you?re ready to go. Halo also performs brilliantly in a wide range of situations: total darkness or bright light (even heavy backlight), with or without human faces. Halo components can be moved between the camera and your remote AC, wherever it makes the most sense. A light footprint and wide range of usability use make Halo intensely practical.
 
A valuable tool for a crew of one or a crew of one hundred

Productions at any level can benefit from Halo. High-end productions can use Halo for precise reference and focus assist. Solo operators can use Halo for completely autonomous focus tracking. Any amount of assistance or automation is your choice. Whatever your camera and lens, and whatever your level of expertise for focus control, Halo is incredibly effective, easy to use and understand, and profoundly affordable.

Nikon Logo
From Nikon:
 
Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.
 
Nikon will offer a service for updating AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR firmware. Details of this firmware service are as follows.
 
Firmware update details
We have confirmed that when the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens is used with the D800, D800E, D810 or D810A, images captured at shutter speeds of around 1/125 s with the VR function enabled (NORMAL or SPORT) sometimes exhibit noticeable blur.
 
To address the occurrence of this, we are offering a service for updating your AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR firmware. When cameras other than the D800, D800E, D810, or D810A are used, this firmware update is not needed.
 
Updating lens firmware
Users of the D800, D800E, D810, or D810A who are concerned about this issue may take or send their lens to a Nikon authorized service center, where your lens firmware will be updated free of charge.
 
When sending your AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4 E PF ED VR lens to a Nikon authorized service center, the user must pay the cost of shipping to the service center, and Nikon will pay for return shipping.
 
Identifying lenses with which the firmware has already been updated
Firmware for lenses with a serial number of 205101 or later have already been updated.
