Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Good report if only Alistair could be more honest and tell the FULL story about new Sony zoom 18-250. Lens is NOT constant f3.8. It is 3.8-5.6. It is nightmare to use zoom with that kind of variable F-stop for ENG work. Regarding 11-16 zoom once again Alistair “forgot” to mention Duclos 11-16 for $3,500.

  2. Nice summary Philip, thanks for putting it together! Did you happen to see the Floatcam Dolly Crane while you were there? I was really impressed with it, worth a mention I think. Also +1 on the Super Hi Vision, it’s absolutely unreal!

  3. The Miller interview I presume…that fooled me big time till I watched the footage from the second camera to discover I had framed the shot with EXPANDED FOCUS engaged you can see this on the FS100 LCD, nothing I could do but to use it but it’s a good referance point on how technology can not only fool you but get you into a major predicament if you are not careful.
