Obviously, we talked for 45 minutes about the big news at NAB 2014: New cameras from many new manufacturers, including Sony with the A7s 4K mirrorless compact camera, Blackmagic Design with their URSA and Studio Cameras, AJA with their CION camera, JVC with their new Super35mm camera offerings and Panasonic with the Varicam 35. Part of our camera talk was Blackmagic’s decision to announce even more cameras before they were able to ship many of the existing Blackmagic 4k orders, or upgrade their existing cameras with essential firmware upgrades that would enable them to format cards within the camera, for example – all of which upset a lot of owners, quite understandably.
We also talked about Philip’s recent love affair with DJI drones, the lack of new big products from RED, the overall trend of the moving camera (including MoVi and all copycats) and the fact that 4K seems to be around to stay (as opposed to 3D which turned out to be a fad).
