NAB 2019 predictions and major talking points – BMPCC 4K Pro anyone?!

Comment on the forum

NAB 2019 begins this weekend and exhibits open to the public on Monday 8th. One of the big talking points this year I think will be DaVinci Resolve 16 and hopefully we will see a big swing away from Adobe Premiere for editing as a result. Adobe will also unveil updates at NAB but I am uninterested, as I really do think their reliability isn’t fit for pro work any more, or any kind of work for that matter.

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.

That’s the most enthusiastic response to any camera release in the history of EOSHD going back 8 years. People want RAW recording – and they want it for cheap.

Blackmagic Micro Cinema vs Studio Camera – What are the differences?

Blackmagic Micro Cameras - spot the difference!

Blackmagic once again caused quite a stir at NAB with three new cameras.

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…
