Gear heads

If you’re a cam­era gear freak then you will know all about Cine Gear Expo 2010 in Los Angles. This is where a lot of behind the cam­era Hol­ly­wood pro­fes­sion­als hang out. For any­one liv­ing in LA or who were able to jet in, this was the chance to meet some of the work­ing pro­fes­sion­als who shoot for the big screen, net­work and get hands on expe­ri­ence with some of the coolest gear around for HD DSLR’s. But don’t rush to get there now…the wrap par­ty was on the 6th. June. Wor­ry not if you missed it because Cin­e­ma 5D was there and they did a great job of cov­er­ing the event and show­ing what the movie indus­try is doing with HD DSLR’s and all the sup­port gear. For those about to join the HD DSLR rev­o­lu­tion and are won­der­ing what is com­ing next in the way of cam­eras, I have sin­gled out this inter­view with Tim Smith from Canon cam­eras who talks about a new codec they are devel­op­ing for up-and-com­ing cam­eras and how HD DSLR’s are now on the cam­era equip­ment list of most major movies.
