Sony’s new AXS-R7 Recorder…full specs now avaliable

Categories: Miscellaneous No Comments

Sonys RAW recorder

As many suspected, Sony’s new AXS-R7 Recorder does a lot more than 4K RAW, full resolution 120p recording, and 30 second caching. Why else would it be larger than its older brother, the R5?

I would rather direct you to this web site than pretend its my own work as I am truly not into this spec of camera or recorder, no point writing a blog if you are not honest with your readership.

Another fascinating documentary, looking into professional lighting by Rick Young on Movie Machine. Dedolight have been referred to as the most innovative lighting system ever developed for motion picture and television. These lights are rugged, dimmable, can be dropped without destroying the lamp, many are bi-colour and many feature an internal focussing system – allowing for a strong clean beam without stray light.

The dedolight system has been recognised by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences with a Technical Achievement Award in 1990; a Cinec award in 2002, and an Academy Scientific and Engineering Award and Emmy Award in 2003.

Simply put, for the cinematographer the tools offered by dedolight are a must. These lights have been used widely for feature film production, commercials, documentaries, in television studios, and for still and DSLR work. Dedolights are used wherever quality images are required.

Live streaming of 8K material is no mean feat , remembering the BBC R&D were streaming the Glasgow Commonwealth games 2 years ago.

Big centre stage events like the Olympic Games have always been a good test bed for future developments in television.
