What to Look For at NAB 2018

NAB 2018 is officially underway! Before the start of the show yesterday, the guys from Newsshooter, Matt Allard and Erik Naso, stopped by to discuss what they are most excited to see at this year’s show.

From the wave of recently released full format cameras, to the brand new and highly anticipated ProRes RAW, this show is sure to be filled with industry changing announcements. Stop by AbelCine's booth to get a first look at the ARRI ALEXA LF, Canon C700 FF, Sony VENICE and RED MONSTRO 8K VV all in one place. Elsewhere around the hall, the Kinefinity MAVO 6K LF has entered the full format world. Sony has announced the FS5II, an updated version of the FS5, complete with all new high frame rate capabilities, as well as raw output straight out of the box, which will be compatible with the new ProRes RAW options afforded by the Atomos SUMO and Inferno. There have also been sightings of a brand new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, more details on that to come!

LED lighting is also sure to be big at NAB 2018, especially in the RGB space. Between new fixtures and firmware updates, there will be plenty of things to check out.

Lights and cameras tend to be the first thing people think of when wondering what will be announced this year, but don't forget to look for accessories that make life easier on set or in the field. Products like the Wooden Camera Push Button ARRI Rosette and the Easyrig Quick Camera Hook Release are exactly those kind of products, designed to make time consuming and challenging tasks a thing of the past.

NAB 2018 is here, so get ready for all the exciting updates, and stay tuned to AbelCine and Newsshooter for in-depth details.
