Year after year NAB continues to be the launch board for new products and services for content creation producers and this year was no different.
This year the hot topics surrounded 4k video production, next generation handheld camera stabilization and gps enabled drones for aerial video footage. DJI made a huge splash at the NABshow announcing their handheld camera stabilizer which is capable of supporting 16 lbs of weight, has 3 operating positions (depending on your shooting needs), the ability to shoot single operator or duo operator and priced at under $5,000. DJI will be giving the Movi 10 a run for its money.
The Blackmagic booth was permanently congested with the announcement of their new camera. A 4k camera priced under $7,000.
The excitement was high with industry professionals clamoring to talk to reps and to get their hands on the new devices. But as always, the true proof will be in what happens once these new products hit the ground in real production settings.
