NAB Stuff -- CML Party

I'm back from NAB with a lot of exciting work to do -- funny how we are so busy to prepare for this show, only to have a brand new list of tasks to complete immediately after it. I skipped the last day, which is typically quieter, to get a head start on my to-do list. The show was exhausting as usual, but all indications are a very positive experience for CineForm and out booth partners (Wafian & Silicon Imaging.) The important thing was I was there long enough to attend the CML party.

This party is a geekfest of cameras in a shootout, plus beer and pizza. Thanks are well-deserved to Scott Billups and Geoff Boyle for organizing the event. There were cameras from Panavision, Sony,Panasonic, Silicon Imaging, Phantom & Canon (HV20 -- no joke was in the shoot-out vs a Phantom 65 and Genesis.) Capture gear was provided by Rave HD, Wafian and Codex. Pictures tell a lot.

so who was the winner? nice shots!

HV20 wins on price. Phantom 65 wins of sensor size. There likely isn't a practical category that one of these camera's isn't best at.

I don't know how the results are being analysed (I'm not involved this time.)

Not enough shots of the Showgirl. She was clearly the hit of the party!

Well my pocket Pentax wasn't going to match any of the real cameras pointed at her. I will have to get some frames off the Wafian for you. Jeff (at Wafian), want to post some key shoots.
