Media Composer 7: Avid Brings Their Flagship NLE into the High Resolution Future and Lowers Price | Robert Hardy | No Film School
Lastly, Avid has dropped the price of Media Composer to $1000. While it’s still a cut above the measly $300 for FCPX or Adobe’s $30/month, the toolset is extremely high-end (especially considering that it comes bundled with Avid DVD and Sorensen Squeeze), and it’s one that you’ll find in just about every major post production house.

John Brawley says the native ISO of the Production Camera is ‘a smidge’ lower than the native sensitivity of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, which was ISO 800. I’m guessing ISO 640 would be the native ISO on the Production Camera. The same drop can be seen between the rolling shutter Sony F5 and global shutter Sony F55.

The video on tops shows you the new 4K Sony prototype. While there are no official specs the camera is “rumored” to have an FZ mount (like the F5 and F55 Cinealta cameras) an 8 Megapixel sensor and definitely no SLT or optical mirror. This is a pure mirrorless camera with Electronic Viewfinder.
