Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

What a year for new cameras…fourteen to be precise and what about large sensor cameras, the Panasonic AF101, Sony FS100, F3, REDs Scarlet and the Canon C300.

I think like the majority of us Canon was going to bring out a £10K and a £6K Super 35mm camera but alas it was not to be though many of us are hoping santa will drop a C300 into our wish list of presents.

News is getting slacker this time of year and with just 2 sleeps till Christmas it only remains for me to thank you all for reading my blog over the last exiting year and lets hope Japan are going to give us a further dose of goodies during 2012.

Just a note for any stray Japanese camera designer…

1. Make sure your Super 35mm camcorder has 50MB/s or better !

2. 4:2:2 or 4:4:4

3. 10 bit minimum

4. HD SDI output as well as HDMI

5. Hi resolution viewfinder



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.
