I was unsure of what to expect this year at NAB. I had some early clues but still wasn’t quite sure what was about to unfold. Then it was the opening bell and I was off. So we will start our 2018 NAB review series with some of the cameras. Full Frame, Large Frame and a few in between. To be fair, these are in no way all of the cameras at the show or in any particular order. But we have to start somewhere, right?
