Welcome ISSUE 94: OCTOBER 2014 ON TOUR The Old Truman Brewery, London, E1 6QL www.kitplus.com O ne of the head turners at IBC last month was the Sony PXW-FS7 (cover shot). With price being a major consideration the main talking point was over what was packed into this camera. Aside from being the owner of possibly the world’s largest air mile collection, storm chasing Alister Chapman (you may have seen him on The Tour in June) often gets his hands on the latest gear and who better to write arguably the most in depth review of this camera to yet appear anywhere. This issue has two part 2’s concluding the much talked about “Everything you wanted to know about drones” and the equally well read “How to produce & stream a live production”. Aside from the written word both of these topics will be covered in sessions featured at the forthcoming KitPlus Tour in November. We’ll be at the Old Truman Brewery in London followed by the Pie Factory in MediaCityUK, Manchester with the latest kit on show plus respected speakers, included Den Lennie, looking at the cameras and kit hitting the streets.

Since this leg of The Tour is in the 60 th anniversary year of Miller tripods we’ll have a limited edition LP’54 classic tripod to raffl e in aid of Dreamfl ight – read more on Miller on page 60.

No more running around with physical media, now it’s a folder with a fi le and a log of metadata – job done. The single delivery standard, AS-11 DPP, for this fi le was set by the Digital Production Partnership (DPP) and it’s a historic milestone where the production of television became digital from end to end.
