NAB This... Shopping for HD Cameras at NAB

Description

I'm back down in Vegas for NAB (The National Association of Broadcasters), the premier Broadcast Association worldwide.
The future of electronic media takes shape at the NAB show. Bringing together more than 100,000 attendees and 1,400 exhibitors from 130 countries, the NAB show delivers the most comprehensive showcase of electronic media in the world. I went in search of an HD cam....and here's what I found.

    I´m not sure if the HD cam market is ripe enough yet, at least at a mass consumer level, but its interesting to see what some major brands have to offer. I had enough trouble deciding on which digi cam to buy.... so no HD for me yet.


    If you had to choose a brand rep out of the three, which would you choose?
    I´d go with Miss JVC, but only cos of her nice smile.

    HD cameras are amazing and the time has come for more movies, both studio funded and even independent to make the switch to HD.  This is the future of video and there are so many benefits to it.  More films being made in HD means more digital cinemas as well as better content for the home theater enthusiasts out there looking to upgrade to the next-gen digital video formats(HD-DVD and Blu-Ray).

    Thanks for the HD Camera overview Laura!  Great job and good camera work.  Now if I only had $6k to spend - still kind of pricey for home movies though...

    No!  Seriously, now that I have everybody's attention...
    I'm glad to see the availability and price of HD video cameras continue to drop.  However, I just don't think its a worthwhile investment yet.  I think I'll give it a few more years when the market has matured and HD and Blue-ray are the standard.  I should probably look into purchasing a new digital camera though.

    I Love the way the segment ended with Laura's rump...hehe.

    Ah, you've found a hole in our little censorship code... I'll fix that, and remove the word p o r n too, this is what happens when I just borrow a bad-word list from someone else instead of writing my own (less fun this way too)

    So no HD coming anytime soon, but higher quality downloads are certainly possible... if you have the bandwidth to download them.

    Anyone interested in that? I think TinaIsHot's motivation is fairly obvious, but I'm hoping there are other reasons as well...

    Yeah...ain't I stinker, Duncan?  I would never post anything explicit here.  Most of the time I edit my own posts, but I couldn't help myself this time.  It was just a title I couldn't pass up.

    Ha!  Remember the story about the guy with the RFID chip in his hand?  Well, I forwarded that all the way up my command chain to a super-boss who's overseeing a test of RFID technology here.  I finally got some elevator time with the guy to see if he liked the clip.

    He said that he thought it was interesting and funny and sent it out to his whole team, but "Those first few minutes, with those ditzy hosts babbling away, those were pretty painful.  I was kind of upset with you for wasting my time, until they quit talking."  Ha!

    That was an excellent NAB report, Laura. Damn, those HD cameras look awesome. I might wait for the prices to go down, though =)

    Wow, E3 is so close now...wish I was going=(

    BTW, what happened to that video with Tina interviewing the filmmaker about the DVX 100?
     
    I got to use a Panasonic DVX 100 camera at The Art Institute of Seattle and it certainly kicks major *.

    Oh, and uh, anything happen in Vegas you can talk about?

    I went to the DV Expo this past year and got to play with all 4 manufactures cameras (sony wasn't listed here) and Canon is by far suprior. If you can get over the price tag and the size it had byfar the best image. Next in line for me was the panasonic. The P2 technlogy is sweet and ahead of its time.
