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.
