Johnnie and Nino also have more information on how you can join the CineD team at NAB in Las Vegas, and they introduce a new factory tour that Johnnie shot at Libec – a family-run manufacturer in Japan specializing in tripods. A discovery has been made – there are currently no cameras with a high enough resolution on the market to film with Apple’s Vision Pro headset, and the Sony BURANO is now being shipped. Finally, Leica has introduced a new camera that Johnnie is looking forward to testing.
