On the other side of the spectrum, Cartoni’s Lambda Head will be the recipient of the SOC’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Technical Achievement, as it has been used “on the majority of productions” according to Eric Fletcher, SOC board member and Chairman of the Technology Committee. “The Lambda engineering is superb supporting the Camera Operator with ease of use, quality of design and producing superior on screen results”.
