Judging by what I'm hearing from dealers, then the F5/55 seems to be the runaway winner. Current predictions seem to be a heavy uptake of 4k acquisition at the higher end of the market - certainly for anyone who thinks their material may have future value, or may be destined for cinematic showing. (Whilst features like RAW may also have benefit in the 1080 world.)

What does seem to be fading away is 1080p/50(60), at least in the broadcast etc field. It seems to now fall between stools - been pushed aside by 4k as the "future-proof" standard, but too much effort for the "here-today" world.

I don't see 1080p/50(60) ever now being the new broadcast transmission standard. Things will either stay as they are, or there will be a leapfrog to 4k. If you're going to update a standard, it's pointless to do it incrementally.

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

There were the 4K consumer prototypes from Sony and Panasonic at CES '13. Hopefully, there's more info on them at NAB.
Maybe JVC will release the Nikon mount 4K prototype they had at NAB '12? But the quad SD cards doesn't seem to be the best solution.

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

At least we already have 2 announced 4K players, Redray and the PS4.

Theirs one more camera that's not mentioned:

It'll for sure be going up against the top dogs from Red and Sony.

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

What is the status of Aaton Penelope Delta?

GoPro, they are doing 4K after all, but I don't think they will leave their comfort zone and go up against the big boys that are already losing money in their market.

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

Good question, Karl --

Penelope is a work of art though.

Last year, Aja announced the Ki Pro Quad, but I don't think it made it into this thread.

At IBC, Blackmagic announced the Decklink 4K Extreme and UltraStudio 4K

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

Nothing wrong with the way you posted that PR, Jacques -- but I had to look twice; it's from last year's CineGear Expo.

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

Interesting as I have just now heard about this today from two different sources.

Well, it might as well be mentioned - perhaps it is finally ready and working - maybe ;-0

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

I almost forgot about another 4K camera that was shown a while back. It's a big chip version of the HMQ10U.

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

What's going on with Panasonic? It seems like the rest of the brands have left them standing. I bought a GH3 recently and would like to see the af100 replaced with a decent codec since i'll eventually build up nice selection of M4/3 glass and would like a "real" video camera to compliment the GH3.

Are there any rumours about what Panny are up to?

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

Hey, I'm with you, my first choice for my next camera purchase is the AF200 (or whatever it's called). However, I don't think anything is going to happen (we'll see at NAB). If not, I'm purchasing the Canon C100 from one of the sponsors here on DVinfo......

Re: Pre-NAB 4K+ Roundup

Nah! Panasonic must be on the verge of some major new announcements. It's inconceivable that they're throwing in the towel to Sony and Canon. I was surprised how quiet they were at NAB last year and am expecting a big showing this year, and some stiff competition. We'll soon find out. I hope i'm right.
