Genie II Pan Tilt is back! The popular motion-control device that can be controlled via a smartphone is now back in stock after a global shortage.

Panasonic has revealed the final spec for its two new full-frame mirrorless cameras, the S1 and S1R. Both record 4K at 60p and offer blazing-fast 180fps frame rates in HD - the highest of any full frame camera. The lower-resolution S1 is ideal for filmmaker and will output full pro-spec V Log footage in 4:2:2 10-bit to an external recorder via a paid, forthcoming firmware update. Both use the Leica L-mount, so Panasonic's new S-series lenses or Leica SL lenses will fit.

Sony will be upgrading the Venice camera system to shoot 120fps frame rate at 4K, include 60fps at 6K in a new firmware update.

Panasonic has announced its third firmware upgrade to the EVA1 camera which provides greater cost efficient and futureproofing for the handheld cinema camera.

Olympus has revealed its new OM-D E-M1X micro four-thirds mirrorless camera aimed at professionals. It's the first MFT body to come with an integrated vertical grip. It features the world-class image stabilisation, a re-developed and fast autofocus (AF) system, as well as two TruePic VIII image processors allowing for high-speed responsiveness.

Nikon has released two full-frame mirrorless cameras that have lots of spec to tempt filmmakers away from Sony – the only other full-frame mirrorless manufacturer. Nikon’s new cameras are the high-resolution 45.7-megapixel Z7 and low-res 24.5-megapixel Z6 which use Nikon’s all-new Z lens mount. An adapter to use existing Nikon F-mount lenses will also be available at launch, along with 24-70mm f/4, 35mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/1.8.

RED has slimmed down its confusing range of cameras and cut prices across the board, but has dropped the cheapest camera, the Raven. Although the Raven is still available as a £15,000/ $15,000 kit through Apple stores, RED’s own line-up will have just one camera three sensor options - Monstro 8K VV, Helium 8K S35 and Gemini 5K S35.
