Two brand new cinema cameras were the stars of the Media Production Show at Olympia in London yesterday, as both had their first showings in the UK.
Canon's impressive C200 and Panasonic's EVA-1 - both affordable large-chip cinema cameras - wowed the crowds. The Canon was a finished version, and visitors got to try it with the latest 70-200mm Canon Cine lens. Canon engineer Yuji Tanaka - pictured above - was showing how the camera's new Raw output was easily read in Canon's own software as well as Da Vinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premier Pro.
But the Panasonic is still a prototype and was hidden in a plastic cabinet. Until it was handed to Pro Moviemaker's Terry Hope who became one of the first people to actually handle it. Although working prototypes are being tested by the factory, the Olympia model was just a mock-up. Panasonic say it's full spec and price will be revealed next month. Check out our highlights of the show!
