The State Of Play

The State Of Play:

“The state of play”

We are currently in the biggest state of flux camera wise that I have easily seen in the 4+ years I have been freelancing and of course much longer than that.

I would say one of the first cameras to come along and change the industry, for better or worse, was the PD150. It gave broadcasters the ability to give cameras with pretty good quality to producers and go out and shoot stuff. It was the beginning of the age of the the shooting/ producer/ director. The DVX100 to a lesser degree affected the market, mainly because it was the first affordable camera to give us 24p, the indie film-making crowd were ecstatic. That was back in 2002. 9 years ago…and you know what? That camera is still bloody good today!
