Arrow Re: A Monster Film, Video and Television Experience - the NAB Show in Las Vegas!

We all know in life that sex sells. This is especially true in the Film and Television Industry.

Storage devices were being sold right and left at the convention center. I personally own two Atomos Samaurai Blade monitor/recorders that store high definition video from broadcast cameras in the excellent 220 megabit Apple ProRes format. I edit using a Drobo Raid hard drive setup.

Here are a few storage (and sex) related images from NAB.

Re: A Monster Film, Video and Television Experience - the NAB Show in Las Vegas!

I find it amusing, that most of those boys wouldn't know what to do with one of those 'models' if they ever got their hands on them.. That body painting was pretty lame tho. Wasn't sure if she was a Sith Lord or doing a porn ad. Not really creative, but then again, body painting is common in my neck of the woods. Id like to see some artistic paiting with more colors or something.

Tony, being that you are at this big ass expo, maybe you can use this as a chance to get a better camera phone.

Also, at a cool 1500 bucks a piece, those monitors aren't exactly within everyones grasp. My only question is, what sort of production type work or films do you produce that warrants such a high tech piece of equipment let alone two?? As the summer nears I will be involved in another Treasure Documentary but this time, it should be on a bigger level, and will need to invest in entirely different gear. Ive been really looking for a better monitor for an underwater rig tho, just not nearly as fancy as you. Thank goodness all this is a write off...I will most likely get a quadracopter as well, not the DJI like yours, but something a bit larger for bigger sensor cameras. Are you still enjoying yours? Someone was buzzing around the islands on April 20th and made me want one even more.

Cool Re: A Monster Film, Video and Television Experience - the NAB Show in Las Vegas!

Tony, I'm using the Samsung GALAXY 4 active version phone which has a lesser quality camera, but had the distinct advantage of being waterproof. I lost my last phone to water intrusion on my boat.

I have been a broadcast quality producer for over 20 years. I've shot 16mm and 35mm film as well as high definition digital cameras for projects from TV commercials to documentaries. I own two broadcast cameras that meet the BBC documentary standards and hence I have two of those recorders. I had several gopros and other cameras for under water and topside shooting.

I don't need to own a $10,000 drone to fly a RED 4k camera around and would rather rent one if needed for a particular production. I have done lots of traditional aerial shooting from helicopters.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Re: A Monster Film, Video and Television Experience - the NAB Show in Las Vegas!

Well there you have it, all Very cool stuff. Id love to see some of your work.

A simple Turbo Ace X830 is all you need to carry a NEX camera or similar mirrorless camera. No need for anything too fancy.

I should have racked your brain more at the Blue Wild about this stuff. This should take all take place in Sebastian. Thats not too far away from you is it?

Wow, I seemed to have missed the DJi Booth photos you posted. Looks like they have stepped up their game quite a bit. Good to see. I hope go pro follows suit. Now that both have gotten their finances in order by getting everyone in the world on board, they too can kick it up a notch and start making some real cameras!!

Yup, they did have DJI Octocopters for larger cameras at NAB, but also just stepped it up with their own camera and this stabilizer:

3-AXIS CAMERA STABILIZATION - A built-in high precision 3-axis camera stabilization system brings a whole new level of smoothness to your aerials and gives you total creative freedom in the sky.

Re: A Monster Film, Video and Television Experience - the NAB Show in Las Vegas!

Good music tracks and excellent field sound capture are important to film, TV and video productions. There was plenty at NAB in this regard. Here are a few images. The last one is an excellent field mixer for sound recording.

Of course, what would Television be without the weatherman or woman?

Here are some useful presentation devices for TV hosts to present everything from weather to traffic to social media trending.

Here are some systems for shooting live broadcast video anywhere in the field and streaming the footage back to the TV network for feeding into broadcast and cable systems.

Here are some graphics, editing and post production vendors. I personally love Adobe Premiere for editing and see it is becoming more popular in the professional editor world, especially as Apple Final Cut has faded in recent years.

Cool Re: A Monster Film, Video and Television Experience - the NAB Show in Las Vegas!

So, let's wrap up this review of this monster trade show.

So much of what we have seen can be acquired through the best retailer I have found called B&H Photo & Video based in New York City. They had several booths at the show. Here are a few images.
