During the next two weeks there will be two events happening in UK: Wildscreen Festival in Bristol and Media Tech Day in London. Here are the details on why they are not to be missed!

The Wildscreen Festival will take place 15-19 October in Bristol, UK. It’s an international event dedicated to wildlife documentary films, TV & photography. Since the very beginning Panasonic range of the high-end cameras have been used on various natural history productions around the world thanks to it’s ability to shot 4K, Dual ISO sensitivity, High Dynamic Range (HDR) thanks to its 14+ stops of dynamic range .  

The Varicam LT was used for various BBC NHU productions (Elephant Family & Me, Big Cats) and will be displayed in a field-based and documentary-style configuration, using an Atomos Shogun Inferno to demonstrate full-frame 4K/UHD capture at 60p and 2K/HD capture at 240p in ProRes RAW. The 5.7K Super 35mm EVA1 will be ready for hands on during the festival, thanks to its compact size it was already used for handheld, gimbal and drone work. For example David Diley recently installed EVA1 into Nauticam underwater housing here and will demonstrate it at the Tech Show through the week.

The Lumix GH5 and GH5S both of which are extremely popular for documentary-work.
