NAB Show 2018 In Review: The Cameras

NAB Show 2018 In Review: The Cameras

I was unsure of what to expect this year at NAB. I had some early clues but still wasn’t quite sure what was about to unfold. Then it was the opening bell and I was off. So we will start our 2018 NAB review series with some of the cameras. Full Frame, Large Frame and a few in between. To be fair, these are in no way all of the cameras at the show or in any particular order. But we have to start somewhere, right?

Q&As with major NAB Exhibitors

CW Sonderoptic Talks Creating Lenses for Large Format Sensors

Interview Image

We spoke with Seth Emmons, Director of Communications of CW Sonderoptic about what he expects to see at this year's NAB Show. Visit them at Booth C3643.

Q With all the major camera companies introducing larger sensor cameras, what is the artistic benefit to filmmakers?

A That’s such an important topic right now because most filmmakers and cinematographers don’t have experience with full format filmmaking. We’re getting these questions a lot. Why should I shoot in full format? What effect does it have on my image?

The biggest change is the new vocabulary of image style and composition that is opened up through a physically larger sensor. Cinematographers are used to telling the AC to throw on a 35mm lens and open up to T2.8. The DP knows what that is going to look like in regard to angle of view for framing and depth of field for composition. No matter what brand lens he or she puts on their Alexa or RED, that 35mm is going to have these same features of AoV and DoF. But, with larger sensors, those touch points shift. Now you can experiment with relative angle of view and relative depth of field for increased creative options.
