Our lead sponsor for ON THE COUCH is B&H – a camera and accessories retailer everyone knows, in fact the largest in the United States. In this special episode, I talked to Gabriel Biderman from the marketing department of B&H, to hear about his impressions from this year’s NAB and the big trends that they notice (and which they have a lot more insight in as they know what sells best). Be it 4K, octocopter drones or camera movement – Gabriel knows exactly what their customers like.
The Sony EA50 was announced two months ago (LINK) and impressed us with its very interesting and ergonomic looking design, the zoom rocker functionality and a good price-point.
What we didn’t know was how it performed before we got a chance to see it and play with it (LINK)
Now Johnnie Behiri got a chance to test the Sony NEX-EA50 large sensor camera and shared these nice clips and some insightful thoughts with us.
In Johnnie Behiri’s own words:
As you know the day after tomorrow Canon will hold a media event at the Paramount Studios in Hollywood.
They call it “historic” and all the rumors point to a very satisfying new product, or in fact several of those!
Here’s what canonrumors wrote:
“I was also told that we’ll see at least two compact cine lenses, and possibly a third”

– Piviting & detachable monitors and grips
– PL mount and EF mount options
– Resolution – 4k capture, 2k recording
There will be no DSLR announcement on November 3, 2011. This is a video only announcement. However, there could be “EF” and “EOS” branding involved.
I was told Vincent Laforet has been shooting promo material with the new camera in the Los Angeles area. However, he was NOT shooting with a DSLR.
Unfortunately cinema5D is too far away from the event (we’re based in Austria), but we’ll get all the coverage we can find, I’m sure there’ll be plenty.
The event will be held on November 3rd at 5pm UTC (10pm GMT).
Don’t forget RED. They announced that they’d be announcing the final specs of the Scarlet camera, in a way a direct competitor to the rumored Canon cinema camera(s).
I read that orders for the Scarlet start on Nov 3rd at 7pm PST (Nov 4th 2am GMT), so we Europeans will have to stay up late that day. What a rush.
