    Could well be, I'll shoot an email to Adam for some clarification.

    I agree that it totally makes sense to run the under/over tests from the manufacturers' default settings. At the same time, it's...

    From Geoff's notes:

    "Light level will be set to 100FC measured in the middle of the Kodak Grey Scale card using the Sekonic C800 pointing directly at the camera.

    The ISO of all cameras will be...
  3. FS7: A couple of points to consider. Both cameras have...

    A couple of points to consider. Both cameras have been exposed for 400ISO, with the grey card used to set a consistent exposure across the test. And the C500ii has been exposed half a stop darker...

    What aspect do you think they've "lied" about?

    Seems as reasonable a guess as any!

    The more I have to ponder the complexities of all the intricate camera settings these things offer, the more I find myself leaning towards the simplicity of...
  6. FS7: I don't remember any mention of them using the...

    I don't remember any mention of them using the stock 709 outputs. Surely none of the cameras would be able to retain anything at 5-6 stops over if they were using Rec709 modes? And even then, how...

    Great video review! It's interesting to see how difference the X-AVC implementation is between the cameras.

    I was a little shocked that the C500ii seamed to trounce the FX9 for low-light...
  8. FS7: Why? Looking just at the image quality, the...

    Why?

    Looking just at the image quality, the downsampled 4k does seem like a noticeable step up from the 4k-for-4k of the FS7.

    Interesting, I was super-impressed by this (best watched at 0.5x speed):

    Not a soap. It's a prestige drama down here.

    Here's a trailer:

    A mechanical shutter in a stills camera is very different to a mechanical shutter in a motion picture camera. Those mirrorless cameras aren’t using their mechanical shutters for motion, only stills....
  12. FS7: A mechanical shutter eliminates all of the...

    A mechanical shutter eliminates all of the problematic artifacts that a rolling shutter can introduce though (rolling shutter skew, jello and flashbanding).

    So for all intents and purposes, it...

    There are a LOT of F5s out there smashing out TV shows every day. TV shows that are almost all broadcast in HD, and won't be jumping to 4k anytime soon (but will be able to just fine with those same...
  14. FS7: I don't think it replaces either the F5 or F55,...

    I don't think it replaces either the F5 or F55, as it doesn't record any high bitrate codecs, or raw.

    I think it will do really well in the FS7's space. And the dual ISO and built-in timecode...
  15. FS7: Sure would be nice if Sony would update the...

    Sure would be nice if Sony would update the firmware on the Venice/F5/F55 to accommodate CFexpress cards in their SxS adapters.

    1700MB/s cards at CFexpress prices, hold rather a lot more appeal...

    I think that's precisely the attitude to have Chris. If it won't make you more money, or at least make your day easier/shorter, then there's really no reason to upgrade.
  17. FS7: Obviously the noise performance is noticeably...

    Obviously the noise performance is noticeably improved (the 12,800 ISO samples shot by Phil Bloom show that quite clearly), but an improved signal/noise ratio isn't going to change the nature of a...
  18. FS7: How so? You can either adapt your...

    How so?

    You can either adapt your previously-speedboosted lenses directly to the FX9 (for the same field of view, and DoF that they gave you when speedboosted), or you can speedboost them on to...
  19. FS7: For a given sensor size, you can only downsample...

    For a given sensor size, you can only downsample from the number of photosites you have available in that sensor mode. The FX9 uses 6k in full-frame mode and downsamples that to 4k, but once you crop...
  20. FS7: And the F5(5), and the Venice.

    And the F5(5), and the Venice.

    Thanks for linking to that Gary. The image quality is outstanding. The 12,800 ISO performance is remarkable, and totally usable (for almost any application).

    People keep talking about this...

    If the extension unit lets you pop cards into it to record the raw signal, great. If it's another case of having to send out a raw signal to an Odyssey 7Q or Atomos recorder... that erases most of...

    The Primo 70s.
  24. FS7: Very interesting. I wonder if it's like the...

    Very interesting. I wonder if it's like the Panavision lenses - full, conventionally geared, manual control. But able to be flipped over into an electronically controlled mode.

    That's kind of the...
  25. FS7: 4k downsampled from 6k is great, it should be a...

    4k downsampled from 6k is great, it should be a noticeable improvement over the "straight" 4k of the FS7 (which loses detail and colour fidelity to the debayering).

    It'll be really interesting to...
