Sony's Glasnost: Is Sony opening up to working with other companies and products?
For those with a Sony A7s or Panasonic GH4, here's a bit of good news: the Atomos is officially accepting pre-orders for the Shogun, the world's first 4K HDMI recorder, and throwing a Spyder into the mix.
Sony's new A7s is a well thought out 4K-capable camera. Sony briefed us, giving some more information
Power to the people: Atomos bills its latest accessory as meaning that cameramen will never be left without power in the field, powering multiple devices and giving endless hot swapping of commodity camera batteries.
There was a lot of news at IBC2014, particularly on the camera and camera accessory front, and we published a lot of stories as a result (with more still in the pipeline). Here, in case you’ve missed any of our coverage, are the highlights so far (with added Photokina).
Why is a big company like Panasonic licensing ProRes not from Apple but from Atomos?
RedShark reader Krasnapolski saw Peter Haas' film Peter Pan Bakery, shot with a Digital Bolex D16, and sent us a link to a very similar production: Mario's Cafe by Roland Denning, a customer at the cafe. It was shot with a Sony Z7 HDV Camera. It's fascinating to compare the two!
