NAB 2023 was one for the books. With plenty of new releases, new technology, and an amazing selection of brands. If you missed it, don't worry - we captured it all on camera for you. Watch our NAB recap videos below and see the latest trends and solutions in the industry.

DAY 3 NAB 2023! (Now say it out loud, it has a nice ring to it 😯) Have you ever heard pixel rain before? On the third day of NAB Show, our reporter Elke had her avatar taken by 70 Sony cameras at Sony/, AND we got a very cool lens disassembling demo at Angenieux.

Day 4 of NAB 2023 - With B&H and allll the female videographers we could find

All good things come to an end. We saw LOTS of new gear at NAB, so now the hardest part is deciding what to use for your next shoot. Luckily, B&H Photo Video did some of the thinking for you. At NAB Show, they brought together all the latest gear to build the perfect studio setup. We asked them to walk us through all the gear and tell us how they selected everything.

This is the PERFECT studio setup, according to B&H:

We couldn't help but notice that NAB was quite testosterone-y... 😬 Why is that? How has gender bias evolved over the past few years? And what can we do differently? We asked some wonderful ladies for their opinion. A big shoutout to all the wonderful women who helped us assemble this video!
