Another new NLE camera

http://www.thomsongrassvalley.com/pr...ity/camcorder/

Very interesting. I don't like the look of the camera as it looks a bit like someone in the 60's idea of what things will look like in the future. But the feature set looks very good.

A camera that records in a non linear way, ie MXF files, as opposed to tape which is a linear format.

Wouldn't "DMC" for Digital Media Camcorder be a more accurate term? Or NLC as in "Non Linear Camera" as NLE stands for Non Linear Editor right now.

It looks a lot like your typical shoulder brick ENG to me... a little 'smoother' in some lines. But when you think about it.. a big camera is bound to sit on your shoulder, you have to look through or at a viewfinder, the majority of the poulation is right handed, and the lens has to be accessable to your hand.... pretty limiting form factors.

That was my point exactly, Richard.

the point that is being lost here in all the acronymic confusion is that thomson/grass valley is entering a camera in the "low end" HD/SD market at under 20,000 euros...that is actually very interesting. sign o' the times.

Hehe, blame Sony, not me for the NLE term. Actually it is pretty accurate "Non Linear Editing Camera" since footage is stored pretty much ready to go and can be edited in camera too.

Limiting in what way? Urr, I prefer the lens to be accessible to my hand. It allows me to control it!

The camera does not have to be shoulder mounted. Another well used method is the cradle hold as well as using a tripod!
