JULY 2016

The AG-AC30 is a handheld camcorder with superb low-light characteristics and many professional features and tools, enabling the user to capture beautiful zoom shots and large groups thanks to its wide focal range (zoom 20x and 29.5 mm wide angle).

Its LED video light with 2 light filters included allows reliable shooting even in night-time scenes and dark places as the color conversion filter adapts color temperature whereas the diffusion filter softens the light source. The outstanding low-light characteristics of the camcorder is a result of the built-in, newly-designed 1/3.1-type BSI sensor which achieves a high image quality of 6.03M effective pixels. This enables bright, beautiful shots even in dark places.

The HXR-NX5R is the ultimate Full HD handheld camcorder. A feature packed successor to the best-selling HXR-NX5 and HXR-NX3 with XAVC S recording, 3G-SDI output and wireless workflow. You can trust in this multi-purpose workhorse for everything from corporate video to education, live events to weddings. It is designed to get the job done quickly and efficiently, the NX5R’s advanced three 1/2.8-type Full HD Exmor CMOS system can be relied upon to deliver sharp, cleanly focused imagery in almost any shooting scenario. Recorded images are remarkably lifelike in texture and detail, while shooting is fast and hassle-free with all the NX5R’s key functions right at your fingertips. Including direct Menu options display on-screen, so shooting parameters can be changed quickly and conveniently without taking your eyes off the action.

Featuring a 30-megapixel CMOS sensor, maximum ISO sensitivity of 32,000, and an expanded 61-point AF system, the weatherproof Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Digital SLR Camera is capable of capturing fine detail even in tough conditions. 4K video can be captured at 30fps, whilst HD video can be captured at 120 fps for slow-motion effects. Additionally, WiFi and NFC connectivity are available.

Today, NHK will use six cameras at Yankee Stadium to record the first-ever baseball game captured in staggering 8K resolution. The cameras being used will be the Ikegami SHK-810 8K. The SHK-810 is the world’s first hand-held 8K ultra HD camera system and employs a single 33 million-pixel Super 35 CMOS sensor. While the game will not be broadcast, Major League Baseball and NHK will have the media view the game on 8K monitors in Yankee Stadium during the game. The recording of the Yankees game follows the successful use of the Ikegami 8K cameras at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015.

The Sony Alpha A99 is the successor to the flagship a900 DSLR and the first to include the revolutionary SLT (Single Lens Translucent) technology into a full-frame body.

Crafted for videographers, the Sony A99 offers full-frame full HD 50p/25p (switchable to 60p/24p) progressive video shooting with non-stop continuous AF and audio features. The A99 with its magnesium alloy body and weather seals is the optimal fusion of super-sonic performance and exceptional image quality and yet features one of the lightest bodies amongst full-frame digital cameras.

Perfectly balancing high performance and small size, the Canon EOS M5 delivers the speed and quality of an EOS DSLR. It features a powerful DIGIC 7 image processing and APS-C 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, and its Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus ensures DSLR-level autofocus speeds and offers precision subject tracking when shooting Full HD 60fps video.

4K UHD Wide-angle 10x Zoom Lens with Image Stabilizer

The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder incorporates a Canon 4K video lens that leverages proprietary Canon optical technologies derived from years of experience in developing Cinema, Broadcast and EF Series lenses. This 10x wide-angle optical zoom lens offers a focal range of 24.1–241mm for photos and 27.3–273mm for movies. The use of UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) and Hi-UD lens elements helps compensate for chromatic aberrations and provides a compact size ideal for on-the-go reporting and recording. An innovative retractable lens barrel structure integrating internal guide bars helps facilitate precise lens movement during zooming, while only extending the lens barrel by a mere 36.2mm.
