What happened to Panasonic's 4K Pro Camcorder?

Published in Technology

Last year at NAB, Panasonic revealed its concept for a 4K varicam camcorder. And what a concept it was, with a large sensor and a revolutionary Android-based user interface. It looked like a genuinely new and refreshing idea for the incoming era of 4K or Ultra High Definition

We've just written about the paucity of 4K from Panasonic at NAB this year. Meanwhile, Sparky Media Productions has sent us another stunning set of shots taken in Hong Kong with their Panasonic GH3: a digital still camera that outperforms Panasonic's own AF100 (their large-sensor video camera)

The big camera announcements this year have been for large (in terms of capability), top-end cinema-type devices. That's all very exciting. But it does actually take time for cameras to be evaluated, bought, and then used in a production. That's why we're only just starting to see major feature films being made with Sony's natively 4K F65 (After Earth, with Will Smith, for example)

Ned Soltz, our East Coast correspondent, has all the details on the new Sony pricing, and how it will stir up the Digital Cinematography marketplace
