I took my first trip out to Vegas to check out NAB2013…. if you want to see for yourself click on over! This first post focuses on photos of the some new Sony equipment and some new lighting solutions…. check back for Lenses and monitors!
So I have never been to NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) or Las Vegas before, but I had read plenty of blogs and tweets from last year to know that I was definitely missing out by not being there. All of the top names in production were there from Adobe,to Canon, and Sony and GoPro. The big names weren’t the only thing to see though – there were literally THOUSANDS of booths and displays there. Each building had its own floor, and each floor was dedicated to a certain type of production genres. There was an entire section of audio and microphones, a camera – lights and lenses section, a post – production hall, an online video and distribution area – it was HUGE. I went with an old friend of mine from film school Blake Eichenseer – he was mostly interested in lighting and lenses, and I was looking to upgrade our server, and also looking at some new LED lighting solutions. After days and days of walking miles and miles here are some of our findings……
This is the line for registration on day 1… fun stuff
If you thought 1080p was great – wait till you see 8k
The Sony booth was pretty sick… see more photos below:
Here is the new electronic zoom lens for the FS700
Here is the new 4k recorder deck for the FS700:
Here’s the Quantum7 4k external recorder
Our main search that we had in common was LED lighting – here are some cool pics from the Nila Booth
And if you are talking lighting, you can’t leave out Arri, or Mole Richardson…..

O yeah, we also stopped by the Kino-Flo booth 🙂
Out of all of the lights, I was most impressed with the Arri LC7, and the Nila LED lights – I can’t decide which one to get…. maybe we’ll get one of each !!!
If you were going to visit NAB, what would you want to see ?
