NAB 2012: What Does Canon Have Up Their Sleeve?

NAB 2012: What Does Canon Have Up Their Sleeve?
If you've been watching for pre-NAB anouncements and rumors as closely as we have, you've surely seen some of the big news. A couple of the biggest morsels being Sony's NEX-FS700U, which can shoot up to 960 frames per second, and some rather cryptic invitations being sent out from Canon which contain nearly no details on what they might be talking about. Rumors are swirling about the possibilities.

Have you seen this new lens yet?

I've always been looking for something like this. I hope they come out with the version for Nikon soon! Looks like just for Canon DSLR right now.

Here's some test footage I found on someone else's channel:

I know this sounds stupid. What would be the main difference between 24fps & 30fps? I know filmmakers use 24fps to have that "film" look but why do some people use 30fps? What if you were to do a product commercial or an event video such as wedding or concert, what frame rate would you use and why? Is it just for the aesthetic look of video to do 24fps? I am a little bit confused by this.

Any ideas/comments are greatly appreciated!

Good day!

Hi, I'm looking to upgrade my equipment to HD video and I'm not sure what might work best for me. I have been shooting iceskating programs for the past 4yrs with my 2 sony vx 2100's. I have been looking atgetting 2sony HDR-AX2000 or just one and a sony HXR-NX5U.

But then would a DSLR work well for fast moving subjects or would it be to hard to keep in focus? I'm not familiar with how the manual focus would work for me.

Any thoughts on this?

Hi, everyone, Jennifer O'Rourke with Videomaker
here. I have a reader that asks an interesting question and I thought
I'd throw it out to the forums.

I have a reader that
asks: "Does the magazine have an article on how to walk using a
stabilizer. I really suck at this!"

I did some research and can't see if we've ever done a story on the proper way to use a tripod or stabilizer. Looks like a story is in the plan, huh? Any ideas?
