BVE Day 3 and show round up

Categories: Miscellaneous 1 Comment

D3

Den Lennie from F-Stop Academy was delivering interviews for Kit Plus today that were being transmitted all over BVE and the US.

PB-80w

The Photon Beam 80 was the RED HEAD LED light of the show for me as it has a hidden feature, without the phosphor disc you get a fantastic rich blue light, great for a background wash. It also has a TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index) of 95 which is a fantastic score. WARNING : If you buy this LED light you MUST NEVER point the raw blue LEDs at anyone as they are very dangerous to the retina (back of your eye). Price £759

Rode

The RODE Link was the audio feature of the show, pure digital sound for £300 is a snip and even although the transmitter is a tad chunky the quality of sound output is extremely clean.

XENON

Quality German Schneider XENON glass was my pick of the show but at around £3000 per lens you need to have big pockets to afford them.

FS7

No doubt the Sony PXW-FS7 was the camera of the show, everyone wants an FS7. I told at least 6 Canon C300 owners to wait till NAB to see what Canon has to announce.

ARRI

Another very popular camera at the show was the ARRI Alexa mini, even at £25,000 everyone wanted to have a look at this wee full spec Super 35mm camera.

LS300-v2

My camera of the show was the JVC GY-LS300 4K camcorder, JVC have pitched this Super 35mm sensor camera at a great price of £2600 and with a micro four thirds mount you have a ton of glass to choose from.

Buggy

Loved this wee chap the BuggyCam which was on slow mode riding around the CVP stand, you can hire this wee chap from www.buggycam.com

Go

This handheld gimble from Shape was another show stopper and so easy to use at £500 its a steal. I took it round BVE and it was flawless.

Light

The Alphatron Bi Colour light was the camera top light of the show, its extremely robust, priced at £180 and has a TLCI of 84 (Television Lighting Consistency Index) which is extremely high score for any camera light.

Cyclone

Least I forget the new range of windshields from Rycote. The Cyclone is a furry less windshield thats so easy to remove and works a treat, it lists at £416.

    I’m in the market for a GoPro gimbal.

    It’s worth point in out that other models such as the new Feiyu G4 and the Zhiyun Z1 ranges are half the price of the unit seen at the show.

    Importantly though they are 3 axis gimbals, and the Z1 range has such strong servos that you can operate it with HDMI or power cables into the side of the GoPro!
