    Oh Hello... F3!

    Mods please stab me in the neck for posting this video in this section (I'm sure it's already been posted..etc..)

    But this is nice!!! F3...

    It's like an EX3 was suddenly transformed to 35mm chip size. Oh sony, you wicked, wicked image maker.... giving me exactly what I want. If only the Panny industrial design department would be married to the Sony chip/imager/dsp department...

      Hey Panny. My suggestion is that you get someone to do a short like this PRONTO! Get some actors, lighting, mood going. No more pictures of leaves and temples.

        It's coming, I'm sure. Barry mentioned something about more footage probably near the end of November/beginning of December. I think.... Anywho I thought I read that in a post somewhere here not too long ago.

          The footage looks terrific. Tough act to follow.

            Go read the blog:
            http://convergenceblog.co.uk/

            They used Zeiss Ultraprimes and a SRW1 HD Portable Digital Recorder.
            Not pieces of equipment that a casual user probably rent.

            The footage looked OK and again the shooters said they did not have
            time to really test the camera before shooting.

            I would rather see what the camera could do
            using Nikon or Canon lenses, recording to the native format.

              I'd be happy to see what it looks like recorded to ProRes on the Ki Pro Mini.

                We are certainly getting closer!

                This had story and actors, and is indicative of what many indie films might be like. But I'm still looking for some footage from a camera surrounded by 5 tons of G&E, maybe some chroma key compositing, good audio (from camera), tracking/crane moves, etc. I know that we are all in such a hurry to get something out there, but I HOPE that I would spend more time pre-pro'ing and blocking my projects than anything I've seen from these big-chip cams thus far.

                    Someone tell me why are we comparing footage from a $16,000 camera shot with actors to a $5,000 camera that has only been used in run and gun tests?

                      Because some of us might have $11,000 more or want to save $11,000.

                          Don't look over the fact they are using $40,000 worth of Zeiss lenses, recording to a $20,000 or so HDCAM deck. The footage was also posted in a high end finishing suite.
                          The real test with the Sony camera will come when some one shoots side bt side with an AF100 using the same lenses and recording to the native formats.

                            I was just reading this article: http://www.televisual.com/news-detai...e_nid-214.html
                            and it is saying 18,000 POUNDS...which is more like $28,000! (could that be correct?)

                            VERY nice... but "ouch"... different neighborhood then I live in.

                              It seems to be aimed squarely at Red's EPIC release and not the AF100. They may be both large sensor cameras but they clearly cater to vastly different levels of production. Just because they share a similar form factor doesn't mean they compete in market segment.
