I didn't notice any new gear this time, but there was lots of Canon C300s mounted on various rigs and Sony had the new F65 on the CVP stand.
The H Preston Media stand was absolutely rammed with people picking up bargains, so much so that I could barely squeeze past. I saw Phil from HDWarrior there playing with a C300 too.
There was lot of interest in the Atomos Samurai... Quite a big queue on one stand to see the demonstration. After my positive results from the Ninja, I'd definitely look at the Samurai when I need HD-SDi input. The audio implementation looks fantastic too from the demo I watched.
I got to the show just in time to see Philip Bloom's talk on the CVP stand all about large chip cameras. It was pretty interesting and although I didn't learn anything new, it was good to get his views on the various pros and cons of the various cameras. Poor bloke sounded like he needed a week off though...
Any other news from the show? Nope... But it was interesting to see that there were far fewer REDs and DSLRs used for demo'ing rigs than when I was there in 2010. Progress....
