As a long-time advocate of prime lenses and dollies to counteract the scourge of lazy zooming–mere magnification without exploitation of cinematic space–I’m overjoyed by a flood of new PL-mount primes at NAB…How can something in our commodified, downsized world have gone so right?
Long time readers of DW Leitner’s excellent NAB articles will recognize his signature combo economic critique/tech analysis/fanboy writing. We featured a series of podcasts with David from the floor of the most recent show (first one is here).
Since NAB has finished, David has had a chance to go through his notes to write in more detail. You can get the whole thing on millimeter’s site. This is the first in four articles on major developments at the show.
In a disappointing development, these are his last series of articles — after 38 some years, millimeter will soon stop regular publishing. A loss for the industry, so get’em while you can.
