Notice the flickering lights in the last shot at 3:31. I wonder if you can play with the shutter speed in slo mo modes.

Dying to read this FS700 review when it goes up. What time is it where Bloom is at compared to here in the US?

I'm really liking This camera! Picture looks great, build in ND is super, slow motion is incredible at price range, SDI out is plus over HDMI. 4K ready adds icing on the cake.

I was wondering about the blinking lights also. Correct me if I got it wrong, but I remember a while back, Barry Green mentioned that if you shoot with a shutter speed of 60, you will not get flickering lights because that's the same frequency of electric lights (60 hertz). Or something like that.
But when you shoot high speed, the shutter speeds should be increased. I'm wondering if you shoot at high frame rates, but kept the shutter speed at 60, would it not cause flickering? Would there be too much motion blur if you kept the shutter speed at 60 for high frame rate shots?-------

The typical solution is to use a 5k, or larger, tungsten for artificial illumination. Like most artificial sources, smaller tungstens will flicker, but the larger one's filament stays so hot that you won't see the decay caused by the frequency of the electrical current.

As usual, Philip's practical perceptions are right on the mark. More slo-mo but he takes it one step further with the cu frames of smoke and window cleaner and the shot of the stones coming closer to the camera as the girl goes soft was brilliant.
Coming from an AF100, I question whether the FS700 mount can safely support the Canon 100-400 without rails.
Quite a marked difference from the two bimbo's playing with a water hose shown in another post.
