From Panasonic’s first P2 HD handheld camcorder with AVC-ULTRA recording to a drooling look at the newest high speed Varicam offerings, Panasonic gave us a sneak peek look that made us ready to hop a plane for NAB 2014 in 'Vegas.
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.
Each year video and film enthusiests look forward to the tech and industry news coming out of NAB. This year, those lucky enough to attend will have a chance to attend a talk by Hunger Games director Gary Ross. Among other films, Mr. Ross is known for directing Seabiscuit and Pleasantville, as well as writing the mega-hit Big. At the time of this posting, Hunger Games is at the top of the box office charts in the united states and has had the third highest grossing domestic opening weekend ever. In addition to Gary Ross, Hunger Games sound designers Lon Bender and Bill Dean will be participating.
To reward companies for their great achievements and to help you separate the spectacular from the mundane, Videomaker will be handing out their first annual Best of NAB awards next week at the show in Las Vegas.

NAB 2010 was all about 3D and the video DSLR. Everywhere you looked there was someone either taking pictures or video with a DSLR camera. In order to shed more light on how DSLR users are dealing with the shortcomings that video DSLRs have, we decided to talk with the people from Cinema 5D about their rig.
