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. Two things strike me about what you have shown. One is that the guy from Manfrotto’s haircut looks remarkably like the dead cat on your microphone that he is holding.
    The second thing is the JVC four card camera shoots in four sections. Bit of a bummer if one of the cards malfunctions. You could end up with an ‘L’ shaped movie. Still, I suppose JVC could bring out an ‘L’ shaped TV to watch it on!

  2. Phil! Thanks a lot for all the work you have done, preparing all the IBC news!

    For me the study of the super high definition 8K is very interesting; but I cannot imagine it will take 10 to 20 years until this technology is available for everybody…

    Another point regarding the Sony HXR-NX70: I got an information from an Austrian dealer who spoke with an Japanese technician, that Sony tries to solve the problems regarding the zoom rocker within 2011. We will see…

    best regards from Austria!

  3. I thought the same about the 4K camcorder from JVC; if one card fails, you will have no picture afterwards!

    But this cam is just the first step in the 4K direction (or lets say the 8K direction). Of course this solution will be (hopefuly) not the final solution, or can you imagine the cutting workflow, put 4 cards together to receive one display (even it is great)?
