4K Ready? 4K Now! One of the things that was most noticeable about IBC2014 was that 4K is now very much a part of the mainstream. That’s not to say there wasn’t still room for debate, though.
Timed with the start of Photokina, Panasonic releases the Lumix LX100, a diminutive, fixed lens 4K camera that's aimed squarely at video shooters.
Probably one of our favourite things we saw in the run up to this year’s IBC was this BMPC 4K Modification which converts your Blackmagic Production Camera 4K to an interchangeable mount — including a wooden faceplate.
Camera maker FOR-A dropped some news at IBC which is sure to create a buzz, especially for the sports and live event videography industries: the FT-One Opt, a 4K camera that records 900fps footage from long distances, via fibre optic cable.
