We had a chance to talk to Panasonic Europe representative Aisling Magill about their 4K future. As we have already reported (click here), they have announced that they are working on a 4K Super35 Varicam which will be released in about one year. Detailed specs aren’t known yet as it’s a work-in-progress (it only seems it will be able to do 120 fps at a bare minimum, maybe more). ...
Sony announced that it will introduce two new camcorders similar to their small-chip PMW-100 (EX1R/EX3 successor), but with 4K recording. The two versions will be called PXW-Z100 (pro version) and FDR-AX1 (consumer version) … seriously, who comes up with these names?...
Well, July has been and gone, where are the new Blackmagic cameras?
After speaking with Andrew Reid of EOSHD last week, Blackmagic released the following statement regarding the shipping dates for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema, and Blackmagic 4k Cinema Camera.
“Blackmagic Design is making significant progress in production of the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. Full production manufacturing is underway on the Pocket Cinema Camera with first production units in final testing. This is inline with our initial expectations of the end of July and means the camera will start to ship in quantity during August. There are several weeks of work to do on Production Camera 4K before this will enter full production manufacturing, however we expect to ship the first quantities of this model before the end of August.”
If I’m honest, I was a little surprised by this news. Just a week before this, Europe’s largest dealer CVP sent a frustrated email to their customers stating that they had no idea when they were receiving quantities of either camera. I was therefore expecting a much later release date for both....
Even though Arri’s digital cinema camera, the Arri Alexa has been around for several years and is at this time still limited to HD / 2K resolution, many popular productions and reknown cameramen choose this tool to realize high budget projects. It becomes obvious that there must be other ingredients more important than frame size. Arri revealed that they’re working on a 4K camera, but also mentions that resolution is not everything.
When the Arri Alexa XT was announced I mentioned how Arri is focusing on image quality and the ergonomics of its cameras so they become a perfectly balanced working tool that helps filmmakers achieve the best. Now that 4K is on everyones dinner plate Arri’s managing director Franz Kraus gives us some food for thought on the topic. ...

Black Magic were interviewed at Broadcast Asia 2013 by Dan Chang from newsshooter.com talking about the much anticipated Pocket Cinema Camera, and 4k Super35 Cinema Camera. The consensus; we will see these cameras ship by the end of July.
Despite Black Magic’s previous positive track record with product releases, the original Black Magic Cinema Camera has caused up roar with buyers as they’ve struggled to get products out of the door. This is said to be due to problems lying with the company designing the 2.5K sensor. With both new releases utilising different sensors, Black Magic have stated they won’t share the same stocking issues....
Red has announced shipment of their REDRAY Player. The device supports native 4K video or upscaled HD, allowing full 4096×2160 playback.
The REDRAY sits between your UHDTV and content. You connect via USB, network or SD, then output via HDMI (1X 1.4 HDMI, or 3X 1.3 HDMI) to your 4K ready device.
It supports 48-60FPS in 3D and will be controllable by REDRAY iOS app....
***Update*** This camera will be available on the Japanese market only
JVC expand their 4K line with a second camcorder, this time sporting a much needed interchangeable Nikon F lens mount.
The JVC GY-HMQ30 will capture up to 60p in 4K using an MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec. It has an 8 megapixel 1.25″ sensor, which works out at approximately 2.5 crop compared to full frame.
The Nikon F lens mount is a great addition over the fixed lens version, the GY-HMQ10. However it appears the new camera will not support auto focus....
This is not a site for IT innovations, but these are news that are hugely relevant to video professionals working on the Mac platform, and that’s why I feel we need to share this with you:
At the WWDC 2013 Keynote (rewatch it here), Apple just announced a new Mac Pro to be released later this year.
