NAB 2012

Premiere Pro CS6

Adobe will unveil Production Premium CS6 at NAB 2012 next week.  Production Premium CS6 wil feature the following products from Adobe:

  • Premiere Pro
  • After Effects
  • Audition
  • Story
  • Media Encoder
  • Photoshop
  • SpeedGrade
  • Prelude

The new SpeedGrade CS6 was teased in late 2011 on Adobe TV with very little about it revealed since then.  SpeedGrade will be a pro grading tool, while Prelude is a new solution for the process of ingest, logging and transcoding.

I’ll have a better look at Production Premium CS6 next Monday.  In the mean time, the full press release teaser from Adobe is below. [click to continue…]

Canon 1D C

The Canon EOS 1D C is a 4K HDSLR featuring an 18.1MP CMOS sensor that is capable of outputting 8-bit 4:2:2 Motion JPEG 4K video to a CF card at 24 fps.  Additionally, the camera captures 1080p video at either 24p or 60p, albeit at 8-bit 4:2:0.  The 1D C also offers an uncompressed YCbCr 8-bit 4:2:2 signal output via the HDMI-out.

Sony NEX-FS700

Sony has released preliminary information on the upcoming NEX-FS700, and it looks like a killer camera out of the box if the price comes in around the expected $8k mark, available in June.

The FS700 will ship as a 1080p camera that utilizes an 11.1MP EXMOR CMOS sensor, which will later receive a firmware upgrade to enable the 4K functionality.  It’s not clear whether or not this upgrade will come at an additional expense like the initial S-LOG upgrade for the Sony F3.

More so than the 4K, the feature that really excites me is the ability to capture 10x slow motion in full 1080p.  The record times are limited to 8 seconds for 240fps and 16 seconds for 120fps.

Another big boon is the built-in ND filters (up to 6 stops) that we all missed on the FS100, along with 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs for external capture devices.  It will also come with expanded focus magnification up to 8x out of the box – something the FS100 will get via a firmware update later this month.  Another expected update for the FS100 is the ability to store camera profile settings on memory cards – and, thankfully, Sony will put this on the FS700 from day one.

I’ll have more coverage on this new camera as additional details emerge. For now, check out the rest of the new features below. [click to continue…]
