4K cameras: A rundown of what's available now

Published in Production

In between IBC and NAB, most of the newly-announced 4K cameras are on sale. So before the expected avalanche of 4K announcements and previews at NAB, we thought we'd ask Phil Rhodes to run though what you can buy now

We understand that Sony's prices for the F5 and F55 cameras will be released on Tuesday 27th November. This eagerly awaited announcement has the potential to reshape the digital cinematography landscape

"One Sony" has been the buzzword at the Electronic Giant's headquarters around the world for some time now. It means that if all the disparate arms of the organisation pull in the same direction, helping each other where possible, then it will make it a much more efficient and competitive entity

It dawned on me just the other day: we are living in the future. There is so much innovation and new technology around us that it no longer feels like we're merely living in the present. It's as if we're in a science fiction movie where we've been transported forward by ten or twenty years

So, we've seen the announcement from Sony of two new 4K cameras, new codecs, new recording media and a new 30" 4K LCD monitor. Just how significant is this, and is this the 4K Tipping Point, at least for production, if not all the way to the home?

 Cheaper, cinematic cameras come with a cost - they tend to have Rolling Shutters, which means that rapid movement can be skewed. In the next few months, you'll be able to buy cameras with Global Shutters at all price points. This can't come soon enough, according to Phil Rhodes
