Post BVE 2014

We at Alias genuinely had a good time at the BVE that has just passed. We did not drink, nor did we attend any of the parties. And it’s not as if we saw anything ‘new’ in terms of debut launches. The 4K camera from Black Magic, the Arri Amira, the wonderful soon to come updates for Sony’s XAVC are not new…so why the good time. I’m glad you (probably) thought of asking that.

Jumping ahead however, did you know that 8K is already making strides and is coming in the not to distant future. In fact, NHK plan to shoot and broadcast the Tokyo Olympics in 8K.

Sony have launched a 4K handheld camera (it’s called the SONY PXW-Z100) and it looks like it’s the next step on the evolution ladder of  hand-held cameras. This is by no means a small thing (well actually, it is…look at the picture if you don’t believe me!). From the PD-150, Z1’s, EX-1’s and EX-3’s Sony have dominated the hand held camera market that is so widely used for broadcast. Canon took the lion’s share of that market with the still widely used and loved Canon XF-305 but Sony have been clawing their way back into the users hearts with the PMW-200 and the upcoming PMW-300.
