Clairmont Camera offers Cine Magic International's Revolution Lens System. It's a snorkel lens system that allows live panning of the objective lens while maintaining a level horizon. The built in image orientation optics allow the image to be rotated to any position within a 360 degree circle. Spinning images can also be accomplished by continuously rotating the image rotation ring.

When using the Horizon Tracker module, the horizon can be set to the desired position and locked. This innovation allows the objective lens of the snorkel to be panned while the horizon remains in the level or Dutched position that you have chosen. A six or seven inch diameter is all that is needed to achieve the 360 degree pan making this device ideal for tabletop or miniature shots!
The Dual Swivel module adds a second pan axis to the lens system. In this case, the horizon lock is not used. The horizon can be adjusted manually or electronically. The Preston FI+Z focus system can be programmed to automatically correct the horizon while panning with the Dual Swivel module.

This ability to control the horizon angle while aiming the camera and snorkel at any angle, in any direction, gives the Revolution a distinct advantage over previous snorkel systems that limit the control over camera movement in order to maintain the horizon line. Whether using the Horizon Tracker module or the Dual Swivel module, infinite shooting angles can be achieved without requiring specialized and time consuming rigging equipment.

The Revolution Lens System includes 9.8mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm, 24mm, 32mm, 40mm and 60mm Revolution lenses plus interchangeable "PL" mount for use with selected "PL" mounted prime and zoom lenses. The "T" stop range is T7.5 to T64. The "PL" mount at the camera end of the Revolution will accept one 40.5mm filter at the rear and two 40.5mm filters screwed into the front of the mount. The Revolution lenses can be filtered directly by attaching the 2" x 3" clamp on filter holder. This holder can be used either in a horizontal or vertical position on the lens. When using "PL" mounted lenses, filters can be attached to the front of the lens in the conventional manner.
