The most spectacular camera was Sony’s full frame FX9 and finally Sony have redesigned their colour science to match Venice a good move in my opinion. £10,000.

Sony also announced a 28-135mm f4 lens for the FX9, at £12,300 with FX9 its not a bad price for this range of lens.

Canon announced the C500 Mk2 5.9K Full Frame Digital Cinematography Camcorder with EF Lens Mount. At £14,166 this will be a hard camera to sell against the new Sony FX9.

At £255 this 1080p switcher must be the bargain of the show, remember you will also need to buy an external recorder like the Blackmagic video assist.


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.
