DV Expo… How was it?

Well I ended up going for a day and it was fine. Not too much traffic on the way and I didn’t get mugged either, which was good. When I got to the show I registered and hit the floor.

I’m in the market for a high-end Tripod and some other production gear. I saw some nice products such as this sweet LED camera light, but they weren’t selling it at the show. In fact it is not available until January. By then, I will have forgotten how excited I was.

Then I was looking at some nice tripods, the system was rock-solid, the price was right, but they were not selling them at the show. By this time the cash in my shoe was burning a hole in my sock.

The other thing that was annoying was Sony… they only had the medium range cameras on display.

I was happy to check out the RedRockMicro booth where they demonstrated the M2 adapter which is a very impressive box that allows you to use cinema lenses on your digital camera. In fact I ended up buying one the next day.

I did get a chance to stop by In-n-out on the way home so I was happy.

As for NAB, I’ve almost decided to do it. I think it will be great to meet many of you and it will be an exciting deadline for a brand new product we’re working on.

I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!
I must confess… I was never a big fan of shape layers…  we just didn’t get along.  I was used to using masks but suddenly (around AE CS3) the same mask tool began creating Red vector shapes. At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]
