At only $1450 the new release from RED is clear to take the market by storm. On pre order from today even consumers can afford 4K playback if you can afford the $24,000 for the TV in the first place. I’m sure 4K TV prices will drop in the very near future and finally we will be able to watch back all the footage we have acquired over the years in its full glory!
GoPro have announced the release of their new GoPro Hero 3 with a vast array of new formats and features.

But now there’s hope.
Adobe has more than usual riding on CS6, the latest version of its Creative Suite package for production and post. CS5.5 launched at NAB last year just as Final Cut Pro X was landing with a thud among users who didn’t care for the radically rethought interface and slimmed-down feature set.
Adobe’s Premiere Pro NLE already had some momentum, thanks to broad native format support on the timeline and a substantial performance boost through NVIDIA GPU acceleration, and the company enjoyed a surge of interest from editors who were suddenly examining their options in the marketplace.
You may have spotted recently the new developments in Photoshop CS6 due to release on May 7th. Adobe have included the feature to grade and create basic edits directly from within a PSD.
Coupled with the new SpeedGrade software it looks like now we have some really useful tools from Adobe for grading and composition outside of Color, Looks and After Effects. Watch the video here.
I wonder wether it will allow R3D editing natively within Photoshop? I guess I will find out next week…
