« on: April 06, 2014, 07:29:27 PM »

NAB 2014 in Las Vegas is upon us and we’ll be running a live blog for the duration of the show. Canon has made their announcements and a lot of other companies will also announce and show great new products. More than 20 bloggers are in attendance at NAB 2014 and will be updating the Live Blog on a regular basis.


The live blog is after the break….

Come on, be a bit more ingenious with the comments on the Sony A7s.

"With no sign of release in the near future, no internal 4k, and no pricing the Sony a7s seems to be a no go for video at this point."

Ok, writing such a comment is ok if you're a Canon fan-boi and looking to put other vendors down but it is pretty disingenuous as there is a LOT of off-camera video recording done already. e.g. look at the SDI outputs on Panasonic's 4K unit, SDI outputs on Canon's C500 for 4K, etc. Are you trying to say that vendors put in ports for external recording but expect nobody to use them? I think not. Similarly the "no sign of release in the near future" is just dumb. Canon was far worse with the 1DX.

Step it up a bit guys ...

Of course, you're not a Canon fan-boy, but I don't think whoever is blogging this is a Canon fan-boy either.
I know this because obviously, its not people from this forum that are blogging from NAB, some third party... I mean look at the last sentence on the first posting of this very thread it says "We’re currently travelling to Namibia, so we are not attending NAB 2014 ourselves (CR peeps). We’ll be there next year!"

Plus, they talk about the new AJA Scion 4K Camera and the Panasonic GH4 with much enthusiasm...

You seem to have bypassed everything that is said and have honed in on the negative feedback...
Did you skip the part that said, "Sony showed off some ISO 12,800 shots that looked pretty darn good"?

Namibia, wow.

I was there last November for vacation.  I don't hear of too many people traveling there. 

So many great photos opportunities in Namibia.

Namibia, South Africa along with most of Southern Africa has many awesome photo opportunities.

Is Canon not announcing anything at NAB? This is embarrassing.

It might be their new "strategy", the same way Apple didn't announce any new products at this year's MacWorld.  Quite surprising.
