NAB ’10 – Blackmagic Videohub

I had seen it all — Stood in every line, tasted every bit of crap food, and tried not to stare at every scantly-clad booth babe.  Yes, I was done with NAB, and heading out the door… when suddenly I noticed this:  Blackmagic Designs was using an iPad to control their line of VideoHub routers! They hadn’t announced it, promoted it, or discussed it at all.  But, there it was, attached to the wall. Watch the video to take a closer look.

NAB ’10 – WristShot

If you’ve got an OWLE or a DSLR, you might want to check out the new WristShot from Hoodman.  It mounts your camera right on your arm, which helps keep your footage steady, and allows you to relax between shots without dropping your gear. And as an added benefit, it makes you look like Robocop. Isn’t that nice?

NAB ’10 – Gradiest for Cineform First Light

Ever since Stu Maschwitz first published a mock-up of a virtual iPad-based trackball color correction interface, the net has been a buzz.  I’ve received a ton of email, asking when something like this will be available.  Well, it may be sooner than you think! While at NAB, I met with Clinton Torres, a developer who’s nearly finished with Gradiest, his color correction control surface.  He’s designing it for use with Cineform’s First Light.  Once he’s got that up and running, he plans to make his app compatible with other host applications as well (like Apple’s Color). Here’s a sneak peak at his unfinished

NAB ’10 – Micro Remote

Redrock Micro has put out some innovative, well designed, and relatively inexpensive gear over the years. I’ve directed many shoots utilizing their M2 35mm lens adaptor, and I’ve always been impressed with their products. But after seeing their latest creation at NAB, I’m officially blown away. The Micro Remote is an iPhone controlled follow-focus that sports one of the sexiest interfaces I’ve seen. I could go on… but I’ll let Brian go on instead.

Any day now, and will cost under ten smackers! This app is now called Voddio
