Zoom lenses and minicams
N/A Finding a quality tracking zoom lens for the minicams made for the likes of Toshiba/Iconix/Hitachi/Sony has been an uphill battle. The cameras have been made primarily for the medical imaging market for microscopes and endoscopes but adopted by the broadcast industry as a high end minicam. However lenses were always a problem. Fujinon made the TF range of 1/3 prism corrected lenses for this market but no zoom lens. A zoom lens project, and specifically now with HD, is just not big enough for the big players such as Fujinon and Canon but now there is something in the market.

AVCHD and NXCAM
N/A Ill be honest up until recently I had not been a big fan of AVCHD. It promised great things but, having hired out consumer AVCHD cameras for the last few years, we knew there were still a few hurdles for it jump over. For corporate customers, to just plug and play in terms of simple playback was impossible some form of software was always required.
