It was a busy NAB for our technical specialists with visits to the Panasonic, RED, Arri, Zeiss, Canon, Sony and Freefly booths, to name a few. With so much to cover, we thought we'd round up all our NAB blogs in one place for you.

Convergent Design has announced an exciting new upgrade option for their popular Odyssey and Apollo line of monitor/recorders. It allows a single camera shooting in UHD 3840x2160 to create the effect of shooting with multiple cameras. It does this by extracting HD resolution windows from the "master" 4K image. In addition to monitoring and recording the full image (supersampled down to HD resolution), the additional "angles" can be also be recorded.

The Sony F5 & F55 cameras are shipping in quantity now, and we've gotten a lot of requests for some custom scene files. I've put together five files in our usual flavors. They are designed both to change the cameras' look and make matching the two cameras easier.The cameras handle colors very differently due to their different Color Filter Arrays (to learn more, read Mitch's article on CFAs), so you'll see some obvious differences in the files. My focus on these files was to match skin tones and give a nice overall look.

Our scene file blogs have always been some of our most popular posts, and our specialists get many questions regarding how to create matching scene files for different cameras. Last year I actually wrote an article for HDVideoPro called Making the Match, where I discussed step-by-step how I go about doing this. In that article, I used a Sony F3 and an FS700 as examples, but recently we received an interesting inquiry on how to match a Sony F55 with a Canon C500.

In one of my previous posts, I discussed using the Canon C100 with the Atomos Ninja 2 recorder, but what I didn't touch on was how to rig up this combo for real-world shooting. Kitting cameras is always challenging because every camera operator shoots a bit differently. When building a camera rig, it is essential to get the ergonomics right to ensure operator comfort and ease-of-use.

Canon has just announced the newest addition to its Cinema Lens lineup, the Cine-Servo CN7x17 KAS S, and we were lucky enough to spend some time it. While sharing the naming convention of a traditional ENG lens, this new 4K Super35 lens shares the same heritage as the popular Cinema Zooms with a versatile 17mm - 120mm (T2.95-3.9) range.
