I am now glad I didn’t go to this show last year as we have a lot of new cameras to look at this year. Starting with the new Sony F5, this on paper is a cracking super 35mm camcorder with full HD 1080 50p onto the new XAVC codec, I hope there will be some sample footage to look at.

Sony will also be sporting the new PMW-150 AVCHD camcorder which I hope to get a look at to see how it compares to the Panasonic AC160 and the new JVC GY-HM600.

Talking of JVC I hope to get a peek at the new GY-HM650 which I have been told I will get one for review fairly soon. Panasonic may have the updated AF101A camcorder with its 10bit 4:2:2 HD-SDI output and the new 1080 50p frame rate.

I will be visiting the Holdan stand to get an interview with Richard about their new baby the Black Magic Cinema Camera which has been getting a ton of great reviews. Last but not least I will be visiting the Canon stand to get a good look at the C100 as I think its size has a lot going for it.

Very exiting stuff this will be a whirlwind show for me tomorrow but if you read the blog come up and say hello, always glad to meet my readers.


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.
