Today I stepped out of the office to grab some lunch and a film crew was set up about 50 m up the road. They packed up and crossed the road with me and our paths crossed. The guys had T shirts with CREW on them. I looked at the lightweight tripod the cameraman was carrying and wondered where his camera was. Then I looked down at the bag he had over his shoulder and realized he was carrying an SLR in a compact case (the kind that only has room for a short zoom lens attached to the camera). On the way back from lunch I spied the Channel 7 broadcast van parked nearby.
We have a HD broadcast quality camera at work and the lens alone cost about $9k so here is a TV station with a complete set up that cost less than the cost of yesterday's lens.
Really interested to see this and one more reason that makes it hard to wait for my D800 to arrive!
