Re: Roll call for NAB2012

Leaving Friday for Vegas. Do a little sight seeing over the weekend and then on to the show Monday. Looking for an LED lighting system this trip.

Re: Roll call for NAB2012

I will be in the exhibit hall Monday and Tuesday, specifically looking to put a matte box, 15mm lightweight rails, and filters on my EX1R camera.

Keen to visit AbelCine, Arri, OConnor, Schneider, and Tiffen to see how their gear plays, and also be inspecting all kinds of other interesting toys.

This will be my first time to the show, hopefully it will be fun and I will learn quite a bit in a short time frame.

Re: Roll call for NAB2012

Myles - which gear are you looking at, for which camera? Might be interesting to share ideas.

Re: Roll call for NAB2012

I’m doing some 45 min presentations on the fundamentals of working with S-Log at NAB on the Sony Booth. The presentation covers: What is S-log, how does it work, how do I expose, record and grade it. I’m on the 35mm stage at 4.30 on Monday and 9.30 on Tuesday and Wednesday. You can also watch excerpts from my “Night of Wonders” video of the Northern Light in the Sony 4K theater.

Re: Roll call for NAB2012

To the earlier question about what first-timers should know
going into NAB, we have this article from 2005 -- it's a bit
long in the tooth but still very good:

Tips for attending the NAB Trade Show at DVInfo.net

Can't emphasize enough the importance of comfortable
and durable footwear. As for myself, I bring two pairs of
"trade show shows" and swap 'em out daily.

Re: Roll call for NAB2012

Very similar to a visit to a large city museum Chris, though the comparison might offend some exhibitors.

I pack a small medical kit, blister balm, bandaids, preferred headache remedy, suncream etc.
And despite the company, I try and limit the sauce each night.

Cheers.

Re: Roll call for NAB2012

Last minute planning, but I'm going to see the exhibits! My first NAB was around 1993. I've been attending sporadically all these years. I look at what all the major players have to offer, but also take a peek at every booth, looking for hidden jewels. The best hidden jewels can be found with Korean or Chinese companies nobody heard of before. Sometimes they've got some very innovative and creative products/solutions.

Re: Roll call for NAB2012

We're here (my girlfriend and I), went by NAB to get our exposition access-only badge holders, and at the hotel purchased discount tickets for Cirque du Soleil's Mystere (7pm show tonight). Tomorrow morning will be in the exhibitor hall.

Lots of equipment rigging and setup looks to be happening behind the doors the security guards keep closing.

Nice little NAB bookstore out in the 'lobby' area - looked at some books on color correction (didn't buy anything).

Looking forward to tomorrow and seeing what Arri has got going with their MMB-1 top load matte box, and then go check out the competitors: redrock micro, chrosziel, genus, oconnor, vocas, etc...

and there's a gathering tonight at something called LAVO, across the street from the Cirque show - so may stop by there on the way back to the hotel room. Lots of people here wearing NAB badges.
