by 4KHUB Contributor, Andre ElijahEarlier this week I participated in a panel discussion regarding the history and future of 4K video production: its benefits, drawbacks, and considerations - particularly for the world of broadcast. What I found to be most interesting about the discussion is the fact that more people aren’t taking advantage of 4K or even in a position to know its pros and cons. I’ve personally been wrapped up in my own 4K bubble for years ever since the RED One was first announced.

by 4KHUB contributor, Andy ShipsidesAt AbelCine we host a number of educational events and workshops. I was surprised to discover the high level of interest in acquiring in 4K. We all know that 4K usage is growing, but to have a room full of producers in front of me saying that they are being asked by their clients to deliver 4K really said a lot.

So the workshop veered in that direction and led to very interesting discussion topics that I thought I’d share with you.

by Dan CoplanI recently did an aerial shoot for Panasonic and the new GH4K in time for a demo at NAB. I’ve been using a Canon DSLR on my midrange octocopter, but was very excited to be able to swap it out for a camera that is very close in size and weight yet shoots the higher resolution. I am most likely going to replace the Canon with the Panasonic as my default camera for that particular setup.
