Nikon at NAB, booth #C8818, April 13 – 16 in Las Vegas:
Heading to the NAB Show® in Las Vegas this year? Be sure to swing by the Nikon booth for a little hands-on time with Nikon’s latest DSLRs and NIKKOR lenses. Mix and mingle with producers and directors who rely on the agility and compact form-factor of Nikon DSLR cameras to create everything from short films to music videos to stop-motion animated films.
New Nikon DSLR Firmware
The new firmware in development will be available for the Nikon D4S, D810 and D750, and will enhance capture workflow. With the new firmware, Atomos Shogun or Ninja-2 external recorders will recognize recording start/stop commands of the external recorder and can be synchronized with recording start/stop commands of the camera. This new firmware will provide greater support for recording of high-definition, uncompressed data that makes the most of the superior resolution of the D4S, D810 and D750, plus the excellent rendering performance of NIKKOR lenses to external recorders. Demonstrations of the firmware (which is currently under development) will be available at both the Nikon (#C8818) and Atomos (#C8825) booths from Monday, April 13 through Thursday, April 16.
Attendees will be also able to try the new Nikon D7200, which inherits many of its high-end video capabilities from the latest full frame DSLRs, the Nikon D810 and Nikon D750 – a robust video feature set that allows videographers to record uncompressed and compressed Full HD 1080 footage at 30/25/24p and 1080 at 60/50p in 1.3x Crop Mode. Additionally, Auto ISO sensitivity is now available in manual mode, helping create smooth exposure transitions without changing shutter speed or aperture, while “zebra stripes” highlight display is available to confirm exposure.
The Nikon D7200 was recently put in the hands of DSLR filmmaker and multimedia artist Corey Rich, who created a film titled “Sur Argentina” that perfectly highlights the great capabilities and potential of small footprint productions with DSLRs.
To create “Sur Argentina”, Corey Rich and his small team trekked out through the expanses of this mostly remote land. Carrying only a few Nikon D7200 DX camera bodies, a small quiver of lenses along with some basic camera movement equipment, a video tripod, a monopod and some light modifiers, the team set out to prove that creativity is not bound by the tools or the budget.
“That trip we shot at a quintessential tango bar, complete with bandoneón players and amazing tango dancers. It was smoky and dark, patina on the walls and floors all of the classic details you associate with tango. The D7200 blew us both away with its extraordinary ability to function in low light in both stills and motion…”
