From my insiders I am told that Sony and Panasonic are due to release new cameras at IBC this year. I can’t make it as I have work commitments this month.

I have a man in the field taking pictures if any new bits of kit appear at IBC.

So far we have a pic leak from Sony domestic on the new VG-30, looks like it has the new powered zoom lens (A) as the EA50 and a welcome zoom control (B) on the camera body. Sony are the only company to date to recognise the value of adding a zoom control rocker to  most of their large sensor camcorders.

Still no sign of an update to FCPX which is very stupid of Apple as they could have had it running during IBC, one of the best places to showcase NLE software.


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.
