I got a chance to attend this year’s NAB Show which is a big gear show held in New York City. All the major camera brands were there: Sony, Canon, Panasonic, Black Magic Design, JVC. In addition, there are monitors, camera support rigs, broadcast equipment, audio gear as well as displays from major rental houses around the city.
Going to these shows can be beneficial for filmmakers and content creators who want to see the latest gear. They are also a great place to meet other filmmakers. Many of the sales reps at these shows are freelance camera operators and DPs, so if you’re looking for people to hire for your next project, you may find someone. You may also get a chance to meet people from production companies who may want to collaborate with you.
Special thanks for Fernando Castaldi and the good people of Ikan for helping with the shooting of this video using their one of their gimbals.
