Every friday we post a few interesting videos to enjoy for the weekend. This friday, in celebration of NAB, I wanted to put out some of the top video announcements I saw. Feel free to add your own in the comments.
Probably the most hyped release from the whole 2013 show, this (kind of) revolutionary product is being backed by Vincent LaForet. While the footage is incredible, we should remember that it is still a professional piece of equipment manned by 2 people. It is a little more complicated to use then these legendary pros make it seem and does cost about $15k (although a $7500 option is coming in the near future). In case you missed it, check it out.
Atomos Samurai Blade
My favorite release from NAB (at least for my purposes) were the new BMD cam for $1k, and this incredible field monitor / recorder from Atomos.
Black Magic Design Pocket Cinema Camera
Along with announcing a new 4k monster camera, BMD also announced the pocket cinema camera for only $1k offers a boatload of incredible features for the cost. Shipping in July,
Get true digital film images with feature film style 13 stops of dynamic range, Super 16 sensor size, high quality lossless CinemaDNG RAW and Apple ProRes™ recording and the flexibility of an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount, all packed into an incredibly tiny size! The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera records 1080HD resolution ProRes 422 (HQ) files direct to fast SD cards, so you can immediately edit or color correct your media on your laptop.
Pretty damn exciting to me. Can’t wait to see the reviews and get my hands on it. I hope its designed a little better then the original, and actually ships in July, lol. Check it out.
