News In 90 Seconds- Christmas Special

Welcome to the latest issue of our weekly roundup of news from the TV and film industry.

2019 went by really quickly and we saw some excellent new product releases, that I am sure will end up on many Christmas wish lists. Keeping up with the Holiday spirit here are our suggestions for Top Stocking Fillers under £500 this Christmas!

In no particular order, we start off with the Atomos Shinobi 5-inch HDMI monitor that is the perfect monitoring solution for those filming with DSLR or mirrorless cameras. The budget-friendly Shinobi may not have the recording capabilities of other Atomos recorders, but it more than makes up for in high-brightness monitoring, thanks to its 1000 nits bright 1080p touchscreen, which makes it super easy to properly expose and focus even when shooting in 4K HDR.

2019 was a big year for RODE Microphones, who unveiled their new and totally revamped Rode VideoMicNTG designed for content creators and vloggers. Porting over the revolutionary acoustic design from the higher-end NTG5, the new VideoMic NTG comes with a new and improved cable management system, variable gain control and ergonomic sliding mount rail.

Blackmagic Design came out this year with the new compact and super-affordable ATEM Mini switcher, which makes it easy to create professional multi camera productions for live streaming to YouTube, Facebook, or Skype among others. The ATEM mini can switch live between 4 camera inputs and comes with its own built-in “media pool” which allows loading of up to 20 separate broadcast quality graphics, titles or opening logos.

For those that needs to power their FS7, Sony VENICE or Alexa Mini for longer, the new Anton Bauer Titon SL battery range come to the rescue. Available in either V-mount or Gold mount, the Titon SL batteries come in either 150Wh or 240Wh models, and feature an all-new cell design, allowing for more power in the same form factor as a 90Wh battery. Capable of operating in harsh environments of up to -20 Celsius, the Titon SL batteries also features a D-TAP and high-speed Smart USB ports for powering accessories.
