EUROPEAN KIT FEST!
Take a look at all the latest hardware and software releases from IBC and The Photography and Video Show
I t’s been a long time coming, but Europe finally got not one, but two major shows for the filmmaking community. IBC at the RAI Amsterdam was followed by The Photography and Video Show at the NEC, Birmingham. Pro Moviemaker was at both to check out the latest kit, catching seminars and workshops on emerging trends. IBC is vast, with much of it aimed at the TV and broadcast industries – a bit out of the major areas of interest for most independent filmmaking production companies. But there are still many halls packed with the latest gear – from cameras and lenses to lights, bags, gimbals, drones and lots more. A lot of the buzz was surrounding the cloud, as companies like Sony,
Adobe, Atomos, Blackmagic and more highlighted how collaborative editing and camera-to-cloud services are becoming ever more realistic and affordable propositions for smaller indie outfits. There were lots of product launches, such as Fujifilm’s X-H2 mirrorless camera, Libec’s latest HS-150M tripod, Sigma’s 65mm cine lens, SmallHD monitors, Teradek’s new wireless video system – plus streaming camcorders galore from Panasonic and Canon. While the filmmaking element of The Photography and Video Show is not the biggest, it continues to grow with new kit revealed from the likes of Nanlite and more. So check out our mega guide to all that’s hot from the show floors!
