NAB 2010 Wrap Up. Thank You C5D Viewers!

April 16th, 2010

NAB had over ninety thousand attendees and  was all about DSLR’s. There were a few other highlights, like the Arri Alexa and 3D. However there were DSLR’s everywhere. Mounted on car rigs, steadicams, cranes, shakers, etc. Any manufacture in his right mind was working to integrate a DSLR into their system. Team Cinema5D was in full effect with our two cameramen Chris Collins and Hunter Kerhart. Even though we got off to a rocky start we recovered fairly well in the end and did our best to bring you interviews with some movers and shakers in the motion picture industry. NAB is typically all about the gear, but this year it was all about the people. Everyone BIG in DSLR and other areas of film production were there. The usual suspects, Vincent Lafoert, Rodney Charters, ASC, Shane Hurlbut, ASC, Nancy Schreiber, ASC, Philip Bloom. Too many cool people to name.  There was something in the air (I hear they pump oxygen in Vegas) this year that made it way cooler than usual.

There was way too much gear and no time to get it all on camera in the two days we were there. Here are a few more interviews. Thanks to all the Cinema5D readers for your support. We could not have made the trip without you. A huge THANK YOU to Chris Collins and Hunter Kerhart. They both worked their ass off to bring this info to you. We pulled a straight 48 hour shift to shoot, edit and upload all of the interviews to get them to you as quickly as possible then drove back to Los Angeles and kept editing on the way. Thank you all for taking the time to check out our coverage of NAB 2010. It was a blast!

Good to see you guys embracing the difficult choice and shooting news material with a DSLR… it’s insane. I shot a similar kind of scenario for the Nordic Open Backgammon championships… shooting features, news updates, and matches all on DSLRs. You become very adept at transcoding, syncing and editing insanely fast. But it can be done! We were producing around 20mins of tightly edited content every day between the pair of us and it was insane, but worth it.

Quick question, what shoulder rig were you using? We’re all over the Redrock Micro but I know you guys rated the Vocas when you did the test a while back.

Thanks! thanks to all of you guys who did this amazing job to bring us the news about the DSLR-revolution! I hope that we, over here in Europe, can get access soon to all the nice and interesting equipment. For me this website gets a 10 star quote!! I read it every day several times. Thanks again!

Everything we shot at NAB on A camera was a Zeiss ZE 50mm. You can tell the difference when we cut between that and the reddish looking Canon glass.

Hey Chris,
thanks for the information. Actually I was talking about the Zeiss Compact Prime that you mounted to your camera at the end of the Zeiss video above.
