Updates from Maritime Film UK’s Rob White, TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN

No… definitely can't afford that… or that..!

26 February 2015

To BVE (‘Broadcast Video Expo’) at London Excel, No.1 tech show for anyone in contemporary TV and film. Here’s Andy Jones with one of a good few cameras Maritime Films UK probably won’t be buying, not without winning the Lottery. The show is brilliantly organized with friendly follow-up to make sure you’re coming, occasional checks on your badge to clock what stands you’ve tried, and plenty of food outlets to restore morale. And why would you need to do that…? Well, every time you go to one of these shows, everyone around you looks a) more competent b) more commissioned c) more funded to buy gear and d) more knowledgeable about… well, just about everything! But there are some wonderful goodies, boys’ toys à go-go. Had to tear myself away from a beautiful Canon HD camera…very sweetyum yum…
