When I got back into the shop this evening I noticed a black wrapped pallet had shown up in the lighting bay, after opening it up I found out that martin had shipped us a demo of the new MAC III. I did not have time to hook it up to the board so here are some really brief impressions: -Color saturation is amazing, the color wheel gave some great dark colors that are pretty rare out there -Surprisingly Quite Movement -Big as can be, the unit actually had 4 handles on it which was convenient, one on either side of the base and then two on the top of the yolk. -Awkward LCD position: where the units LCD screen was made it awkward at some positions to see it as the yolk could cover it up. -Crappy road case: the side of the unit was already getting scratched from the case, but that may just be the cases upstaging uses... -Gobos were so so, wasn't too blown away by any -It was bright, but a shoot out has not been done yet so I don't know what to compare it to, I will probably compare it to a VL3K if I get time. Any other questions, if you ask specifics I can probably get an answer for you tomorrow.
