On the camera side it looks a bit quiet so far. Canon confused us all with the EOS R external RAW recording tweet, but it’s entirely possible their reps don’t know the difference between external HDMI recording and RAW any way.

I like the URSA Mini the best but here we have the old Pocket and Studio cameras reincarnated. They are a lot cuter this time.
These cameras are exceptionally innovative and certainly break all the known performance / size ratios. Although they look very similar on the surface they are aimed at very different users. I’ll now delve into how the pair of ‘identical twins’ differ in terms of personality…
I just received a tidbit of info from a reader. Apparently Blackmagic have a third camera we’ve not seen yet on any of the posters at NAB. The show opens shortly.
According to a professional DP, Canon may in fact have some excitement for us in store at NAB. (Important to note this is a rumour and may just be speculation on behalf of my source).
Super charged specs!
- 1-60fps 4K raw to DPX format
- 120fps 4K raw burst mode
- 240fps 2K raw continuous to Cinema DNG (would love to see the file sizes on that!!)
- Single 3G HD-SDI link
You won’t need Sony’s own expensive raw recorder for the F5 to get 4K raw on the FS700. The camera firmware will step it up to being able to deliver 4k over a single 3G HD-SDI connection to the affordable Odyssey7Q monitor / recorder.
