ComicCon has evolved from just a comic book convention to all things geek and then some. At this weekend’s event at New York’s Jacob Javits Center, attendants were immersed in a multitude of alterna-verses from Marvel and DC to Westeros and Bon Temps. ComicCon was a great place to let your freak flag fly, emulating your favorite characters from Dr Who to Venom, Heisenberg to Sailor Moon, Michonne to Korra. The Mayuri Kurotsuchi’s made me yearn for my blue hair days.

Cinematographers Love Toys. Cybel Reviews Cine Gear Expo - NYC

For those unaware: Cine Gear Expo is a trade show that happens once a year. There are seminars and exhibitor booths showing off the latest technology and services in film production. Sadly, the NYC expo is nowhere as extensive and diverse as the shows in LA or NAB in Las Vegas. What follows is what gear caught my eye, appeared to be an improvement over what I currently use and seems feasible given my typical budgets. You can’t really judge any equipment until “out in the field”, but this is a good start.
