Sony are outdoing themselves at NAB with new cameras at the moment, and at fcp.co towers we definitely want one of these beauties. The F65, even the name sounds like a combat jet, looks so cool, take a peak at some of those specs - 120fps, 4K resolution and a rotary shutter to prevent that rolling shutter problem, this is one very nice piece of kit. No retail price available as of yet, but our guess is you'd probably have to re-mortgage to be able to buy one and all the lenses that go along with it. Still we can dream.
Sony are going full tilt into 3D, with the HXR-NX3D1. All the tech stuff after the break but what's of particular interest to us is that support is scheduled to enable conversion of MVC footage recorded with the HXR-NX3D1 to CineForm codec using the popular CineForm Neo3D/NeoHD as a Codec Plug-In for 3D editing. Looks like GoPro made a good decision in buying CineForm.
We all want this and we completely agree with Jason Rose when it comes to editing and keyboards. However demoing FCP7 with a touchscreen seems slightly odd with the new version less than 48 hours away.
