The range of cameras, lenses and lighting gear that will be on display at the Media Production Show has been revealed, with attendees of the exhibition able to get hands-on with kit from the likes of Blackmagic Design, Panasonic, Red and Canon.
The Media Production Show, which will be held at The Islington Design Centre in June, will showcase the skills and technology used in the creation of TV, film and commercials.
MBI event director Charlotte Wheeler said: “Camera and lighting is instrumental to the production process, and we have some of the best manufactures and suppliers in the industry exhibiting at the Media Production Show.
“Many of the products and innovations they will be bringing to the show at this crucial time in the production calendar will be seen for the first time in the UK.”
Blackmagic Design will demonstrate the latest in its Ultra HD 4K workflows, with 12G-SDI equipped products including its range of digital film cameras, Teranex standards converters, latest version of DaVinci Resolve for editing, colour grading and finishing and its range of ATEM production switchers.
Meanwhile, Panasonic will display the latest additions to its range of cameras including the recently unveiled Varicam LT and the AG-DVX200 camcorder.
Panasonic will also demonstrate the latest 4K and HD remote camera solutions that are commonly used in fixed-rig installations. Panasonic’s AK-UC3000 4K live studio camera, which was used recently to broadcast Barcelona v Real Madrid in 4K, will also be shown.
Canon has teamed up with hire firm Shooting Partners to demonstrate how its equipment has been used on leading productions including The Voice and Hunted.
Visitors to the Shooting Partners stand will also have the chance to see Canon’s recently unveiled ME200S-SH camera.

Shown for the first time in the UK, Tile Light is billed as a “TLCI 92 trans-technological fusion product” that is daylight balanced and has a soft spread for enhanced skin tones.
