June chapter meeting

Our June chapter meeting will be a “shootout” of two mid-range studio/handheld HD cameras. It’s hosted by CBS Television (WKBD & WWJ-TV), 26905 West 11 Mile Road in Southfield.

Sony will be bringing the HXC-100K and Ikegami will bring their HDK-77EC/CT. Each has a 1920×1080 2/3 inch sensor and is capable of handheld or fixed operation. They will be configured for triax studio use with mid-range lenses, viewfinders and control panels.

This will be a joint meeting with our colleagues in SMPTE Detroit Section. Members and guests of both organization are welcome; there is no charge, and please invite your co-workers and anyone interested.

SBE members are invited to join SMPTE folks at their Manager’s Dinner, at 5:30 at Buddy’s Rendezvous, 31646 Northwestern Highway at Middlebelt in Farmington Hills. Cash bar; food check divided equally among all diners. All are welcome. If you plan on coming, send us a message.
