Teamforce showing their Car Inspection Cameras, Video Borescope and Wireless Endoscope Cameras. They make many different device models. Some of them have LED lights for better view on dark places. The camera lens are so tiny and some of the devices have interchangeable camera module cables with different lengths. Some models have a SD card slot and can be connected with the computer using a USB cable. Some have a waterproof housing. The battery life is around 4 hours and the price range for these is from $120 to $130 retail price.
Samsung’s new CMOS image sensor technology, ISOCELL, substantially increases light sensitivity and effectively controls the collection of electrons, resulting in higher color fidelity even in poor lighting conditions. By incorporating ISOCELL, the image sensor will have 30 percent decrease in crosstalk; 30 percent increase in full well capacity; and 20 percent wider chief ray angle. Using the new technology with 1.12µm ISOCELL pixels, Samsung is introducing two new CMOS image sensors —16 and 13Mpixel.
The 16Mpixel ISOCELL imager provides a wider, clearer viewing experience to mobile device users by implementing a 16:9 aspect ratio, allowing for full-size, high-resolution images and video to be displayed on screen without field-of-view (FOV) loss. This high-speed sensor captures full FOV 16:9 full HD (1080p) video at 60fps, and for the first time in the industry, enables continuous shooting of all 16Mpixels at 30fps. Samples of the 16Mpixel ISOCELL CIS are available now and scheduled for mass production in the first quarter of 2014.
Samsung’s new 13Mpixel ISOCELL CIS features Smart Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology, which allows users to capture images at 30fps. With a mosaic pattern of multiple exposures, images are then processed with an advanced algorithm for wider dynamic range. This enables users to capture details clearly in both bright and dark areas even in high contrast lighting conditions. This Smart WDR feature is based on Samsung’s advanced 65nm stacked process, where the pixel array is attached right on top of the logic circuit. Samsung’s 13Mpixel product is sampling now and is scheduled for mass production in the second quarter of 2014.
This is 360 video, presented by Finwe Ltd CEO Juha Kela. 360 video is a special video production technology that utilizes multiple cameras to produce a full spherical 360×180 degree video experience. Video from multiple sources is synchronized, fine tuned and stitched together with a software called Autopano Video and Autopano Giga by Kolor. Kolor also delivers solutions for 360 video hosting and playback on a PC and web browser. Web player is based on html5.
Finwe ltd has developed a movement and touch controlled 360 video player for mobile devices, called 360 VideoBall. In collaboration with Kolor, they also just released a pre-version of free Kolor Eyes Android player. Beyond that, mobile player can also be used with Kickstarter funded goggles vrAse. This cool gadget has lenses and a special frame that holds mobile phones inside. The mobile phone is then used as a movement controlled display device, producing a separate image for both eyes. There is now an equipment based on 6 GoPro’s in a 360×180 formation to shoot 360 3D videos, which was used as a demonstration in MWC. The experience is really stunning and the image quality is very good thanks to the high quality and resolution of mobile devices.
Finwe CEO Juha Kela also demonstrated a special custom technology that enables 6k 360 video playback on a mobile phone. Current devices support only 4k resolution, but with the special technology they developed devices can play back videos even with 8k resolution! With this solution, user can zoom into the video without losing the quality.
To be able to provide a full turn key solution for 360 video production and to support the marketing of the mobile 360 video player technology Juha Kela founded a company called FinCloud Ltd. FinCloud has already done number of multi camera productions and one of their productions, a 360 music video for Finnish band Apulanta is currently nominated in Spotify “Innovator of the Year” category in Emma Gaala. Emma Gaala is an annual event, which rewards the most significant players in the industry during a year.

Mastor produces motorized gyroscope based steadicams, Gimbal Systems and Unmanned Aerial Systems for steady filming, the company is Hong Kong based. Mastor is itself a relatively new company being 6 months old. Mastor also had a IFA booth as well. Some of the products Mastor makes includes filming helicopters (Octa and Quad versions available) and devices for holding your smartphone, point and shoot and or larger sized camaera. The smartphone holder will come in February for 230 Euro or 313 USD. The GOPRO holder will retail for 299 Euro or 407 USD. The camera holder for directors has a remote control and sells for a much higher price.
Unfortunately it costs $300’000. But it sure looks awesome. 8K 60p video recording is only possible with this camera on this planet. Just about Japanese NHK may also have some 8K camera of some kind but they also use Astro’s technology in that. Astro is a Tokyo based advanced video device engineering company. They make the new reference designs that all other TV and Camera companies used to benchmark and test commercial products that are being launched with 4K and 8K support. Astro was also one of the first manufacturers of 4k monitors and 4k cameras. When 8k displays become avaialable Astro will release an 8k monitor. Astro does not make components. Astro uses field-programmable gate array (FPGA) rather than mass produced processors, that is to get the fastest time to market while companies then optimize processes on processors that get used in cheaper mass market products that get sold worldwide.

Panasonic launches their new Lumix GX7 compact Micro 4/3 Mirorrless camera with interchangeable lenses, showing it for the first time for people to try it out at IFA 2013. The Panasonic GX7 has classical retro-like analogue designs in silver and black styles and features modern cutting edge technology. The camera supports the latest new Panasonic lenses and also supports the usage of older lenses with adapters. The small size of the camera doesn’t prevent it from offering better image quality even than the Panasonic GH3 (which is the camera I use since January of this year). The quality offered by the GX7 is one of the best of any camera on the market today. Panasonic has developed a whole new sensor. The retail Price is about 1000 Euros in Europe and about $1000 in the USA. The GX7 offers basic video recording features similar to the GH3 but is not designed with that functionality in mind (does not support mini-jack audio input for example). Panasonic’s Lumix cameras are designed and manufactured in Japan. Panasonic itself has been manufacturing cameras for years often for other brand names. Panasonic also made cameras before they introduced the Lumix brand name in 2008. How soon for Panasonic’s consumer 4K cameras? Will there be a sub-$2000 Lumix GH4 with 4K support next year?
