    I've been a big fan of the EVA1 ever since I started using it a couple of years ago. Had stayed with my F3 until my clients started requiring 4k - and never liked the color of the FS7 or...

    Agreed that having a "No Recording Media" warning in the VF display when the record button is pushed and there are no cards in the camera would make a lot of sense for the next firmware update...

    I vaguely remember Sony doing that for a while with some of their smaller prosumer NXcams. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but I don't remember it being popular. And the recording on those...

    I've experienced the 'purple becomes blue' shift quite a few times when shooting broadway shows -- but usually for the shoots I'm on that has meant several Sony cameras - and the shift happening...

    I haven't noticed this changing much with the choice of gamma -- it seems to be a tendency of many of the Sony camera models to capture deep purples almost the same as deep blues - to the point that...

    As I recall the dual link output was 10 bit 4:4:4.
    The Gemini recorded uncompressed DPX files, so the data rate was HUGE!
    I think I got about 42 minutes from a 512 GB SSD!

    Remember that the EX1, EX3, F3 and F355 all topped out at 35mbps
    They all were able to look great when shooting wysiwyg, or shooting in cinegammas with minimal post adjustments.
    Of course the F3...

    Yes, the repair issue makes the older heads less appealing. A little while back the quick release spring assembly broke on one of my old (100mm) Sachtlers. Part no longer available. They offered me...

    Agree totally.

    The F3 sensor doesn't have quite as much dynamic range as the F55, and as Grug mentions not as wide a color gamut -- but the overall image is still absolutely beautiful.
