More 4K News

Just wrote something for Filmmaker Magazine about 4K camera news for Sony and ARRI, and a couple of new things happen.

The Blackmagic Design production Camera 4K is $500 off until September 5. Does that just mean Christmas is early, or is something else going to happen next week?

Panasonic has gone and announced a $3,4999.99 4K camcorder. The HC-X1000 features a 18.47 Megapixel 1/2.3" MOS Sensor, 20x lens, built-in ND, and records in MP4, MOV or AVCHD. It will only record 4K in MP4 format.
It will be interesting to see how the quality of the video holds up.
