We're replaying some of the best articles from 2012 in case you missed them the first time round. Today: What does "broadcast quality" mean these days by Phil Rhodes

The big camera announcements this year have been for large (in terms of capability), top-end cinema-type devices. That's all very exciting.

Published in Production

There seems to be no limit to the minutiae that can be displayed in a camera’s viewfinder.  Focal distance, zoom percentage, date and time, battery condition, shutter, and umpteen other things, all contribute to the clutter; indeed, there is no shortage of miscellany that can obscure the viewing image and the edges of the frame
