*************************


Panasonic has announced two new MiniDV camcorders into the Japanese Market. The first is the NV-GS70K, a three chip model and the second is the NV-GS50K which only includes one chip, but comes in four different colors.
The NV-GS70K include three chips, although we don't know their size or resolution. We do know however that the camcorder can record 1,280 x 960 pixel resolution stills to SD cards, and that it includes an 8 MB SD card. The camcorder also includes the Magic wand, which was provided with the US Panasonic PV-DV953. The wand functions as wired zoom and record controller. The camcorder can also record MPEG4 video to the SD card.


Panasonic Japan also announced the NV-GS50K, a single chip camcorder. The NV-GS50K also can record digital stills to SD cards, as well as MPEG video. It includes an 8 MB SD card. The NV-GS50K also comes in four colors including: a standard silver, a red, yellow and a blue color.

We were unable to get pricing or availability information on the camcorders or information on when they would be available in the US.

An interesting Jan. 27, 2003 article on Millimeter Magazine's site regarding the increasing popularity of The Orphanage's Magic Bullet Suite software.

Very interesting. I was just wondering what cameras they were using. It didnt sound like MiniDV. And to my knowledge Magic Bullet doesn't support any camera lower than the Jvc Gy-dv500u. Their reason is the lack of resolution on the CCDs.

-------
"Since the final output for Chaiken Films and HBO/Cinemax was not to film, several options were possible for achieving a cinematic look. A progressive 30 frames per second was the chosen master. This offered a nice hybrid between the look of video and film—adding a smoother cadence to the final master," said Aaron Rhodes, Lead Magic Bullet Artist at The Orphanage.
--------
So why did they shoot it in 30p?
I thought from reading that 60i is the way to go. So then Post houses won't have any problems converting the footage to another format. So are there other DV cameras out there that do 30p? And if they didnt decide on mastering it to film, it sounds like what Mr. Rhodes is saying is that it doesnt matter what way you shoot it.

Robert,
MB is largely agnostic regarding the source of the footage. It's a suite of plug-ins for Adobe's After Effects 5.5. If you can get it into AE chances are that MB will be able to chew on it.

See their site for more info.

Canon's technology

Although this is about a still camera, the technology is exciting and should soon spill over to video. Canon's new EOS-1DS is an 11 mega pixel still camera with the same frame size as 35mm film. The lenses used on the DSLR will have the same focal length as do the 35mm film cameras.

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos1ds/

has some sample pics of the pro canon's ability and it is stunning to say the least. One shot of a ferris wheel type ride is beautiful. This camera has been out for a few months I know but I just got a look at it.

It seems to me technology for video cameras may come quicker than expected. 11 mega pixels at 8 frames per second, even for a still camera that is awesome.

I know we have wished them to death but isn't it about time we hear about upcoming technology for video cameras, how long has it been since the XL1S was announced.
