Canon in D…a lust-have for the budding video journalist

30 03 2011

The newest Canon D series provide a perfect opportunity for budding photo and video journalists.

With the HD capture for film, and the high quality pictures these cameras can take anyone can suddenly become a video journalist.

Previously, where it may have been difficult to bring in proper filming equipment, you can now use a standard SLR camera and capture High Definition video in the palm of your hand.

This camera has a wide range of lenses to use and very easy to grasp controls. Its quality is outstanding and it has been used for a number of successful short films.

It is becoming more and more obvious that anybody with a journalistic flare can begin to become a video journalist.

Dates for your 2012 Diary!

29 03 2011

It’s never too early to start preparing mentally for the next broadcasting expo! It begins in Earls Court on the 14th Feb 2012 and lasts for two days. So if you’re the kind of person who would struggle to pick between an evening at the movies watching a rom com on Valentine’s day or an evening with the ENPS Mobile Suite, this event is for you.

It is such a worthwhile opportunity to experience the latest in broadcasting techniques and technology. It is also visited by influential industry professionals, so it’s the perfect opportunity to network.

The Broadcast Expo this year was held in Earls Court over three days from the 15th to the 17th of March. It was packed full of free master classes, new product launches and demonstrations. It was split in to two areas the Broadcast Video Expo and The Production Show.

The Broadcast show focused on a range of new technologies ranging from HTML5 and video blogging, to the launch of the new Avid Suite, cameras and audio equipment. There were a wide range of talks given by industry experts as well as live demonstrations.

The Production Show focused more on the production of broadcast. With talks from location managers, film agencies and production managers it gave a great introduction to anyone wanting to break in to the industry as well as helping answer issues that arise from many broadcasts.

You should definitely check out the website, and read the attendee’s comments. One of which is posted below:

“It’s a very important show for me because it’s the only UK based broadcast show. It’s definitely the place to come to share ideas and innovations. I’ve seen the show grow over the years and I think I’d put it into the ‘Brilliant’ market now, because it certainly has grown and grown and is good for many different things.” Steve Teague, ITV Group, Head of News
