Sony to launch NEX-FS700E 4K cinema camera for $9,000 at NAB?

Friday, March 30th, 2012

What would you pay for the ability to capture cinema quality 4K video? $36,000? $18,000? Try $9,000. That’s the expected price of Sony’s rumored NEX-FS700E, which could launch at NAB next month with a June ship date. EOSHD reports that the camera will pipe 4K video to a dedicated external recorder over 3G HD-SDI. It will reportedly use the same NEX E-mount as its predecessor, the FS100, and may include a trio of neutral density filters to increase versatility. We haven’t been able to track down an image of the rumored cinema cam (the model in that image above looks identical to the FS100), but we wouldn’t be surprised to see another detail or two leak out before the broadcast community’s annual Vegas gathering kicks off in a little over two weeks. For its part, Canon is also expected to announce a 4K EOS-format DSLR at NAB, as a less-expensive alternative to the $16,000 C300, while RED’s Scarlet already has 4K capabilities, and a $9,000 price tag.

Digital Bolex, a cinema-quality camera for the masses, shown off at SXSW [video]

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

During the annual South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas, Digital Bolex showcased its retro 2k resolution RAW video camera. Up until now, RAW-capable video cameras were extremely pricey, costing tens of thousands of dollars or more. Relative to these high-end units, the Digital Bolex will be very affordable when it launches later this year. The Digital Bolex is a reinvention of the original Bolex 16mm motion picture camera, with the added ability to use interchangeable lenses. The camera’s 16 millimeter-equivalent sensor can record in Adobe Cinema DNG to an SD card, and it features a 2.4-inch adjustable LCD viewfinder. The project is being fully funded through Kickstarter, and has already surpassed its first two goals of $100,000 and $200,000, as it inches closer to its current $250,000 goal. The first 100 cameras will be available in August for $3,300, with pre-orders for the general public beginning shortly after for a fall release. A video containing Digital Bolex test footage follows below.
