One of NAB biggest reveals came courtesy of AJA, usually known for their range of recorders and mini-converters, like the Ki Pro Quad and LUT-box, which Andy covered yesterday. This year they unveiled the CION, a new 4K/UHD and 2K/HD production camera. It features a 4K APS-C-sized CMOS sensor with an electronic global shutter and 12 stops of dynamic range. As far as recording options go, the CION can handle 4K (4096×2160), UltraHD (3820×2160), 2K (2048×1080) and HD (1920×1080). It can also output frame rates up to 120fps in 4K or UHD from its four 3G-SDI outputs in AJA Raw. In the video above, I talk with AJA’s Andy Bellamy about some of what’s going on under the hood of this new camera, so check it out for more details.
