    Although I've seen the links to them before, I finally watched the first 15 minutes of the FX6 one...these things are a lot of work. So much info and you have to say/cover a lot of things and make sure to sometimes speak about them in correct orders. The work is underrated vs. just hyping up a camera on a 5 min YT clip.

    Sony should contract these and package them in with every FX6 like Panasonic did with BG's books.

    [Of course the money would have to be worth it for DJ.]

      Thank you for the comments, I 'm glad to hear that you like the video. Yes, it is a lot of work but I always think it will be simpler than it turns out to be. I've heard that if women could remember how awful childbirth is they'd never have a 2nd kid. I think somehow that applies to my videos. By the time another camera comes along I forget all the reasons I said I'd never do another.

      As for Sony sponsoring the production, I'm sure that will never happen for the videos. There is a certain chap in the UK that will say whatever they want him to say. But with that said, they have already underwritten the publication of my F800 and Z750 hard-copy books. There is no way I could have written and produced those books (similar to the BG Panasonic books) without their support. Fortunately, the ENG division of Sony has no problem with me saying anything that I think needs to be said. Warts and all.

      BTW, I put the 85mm f/1.8 I bought from you to work for the first time today while shooting in Yellowstone and it looked great. The FX6 + 85mm can see in the dark. Amazing times we live in.

        A #1 seller! (The 85mm is really great, looking forward to seeing the footage.)

          You can register a Priority face so the camera will track that face whenever it is in frame and ignore other faces. Even if the face leaves the frame and returns later the camera will recognize that it has priority. Use the joystick to put the orange cursor under the face you want to track and then select it. The face with a double white box around it is the registered face.

          Thanks Doug!
          Will check it out next time I have cameras in hand.
          Would I be right in assuming that the FX9 has this feature as well?

            Can this also be done on the A7SIII? I had an idea to shoot a subject coming out of a crowd in t.sq, in slow motion, with AF the other day, but I couldn't figure out how to do it on the spot...

              I believe so but I haven't tried it yet

                I honestly don't know. I only had a demo FX9 for a few days two years ago and I didn't use any AF lenses. I don't about the A7SIII either, since I have never even touched one. But I can say that the priority face feature does work on several other Sony cameras, such as the Z280, Z190, and I think the Z90 and Z150. So odds are good that it is on the FX9 and A7 series.

                  Think I'm going to sell my FX6 and try and grab a used FX9. I'm just not feeling this camera

                    There's no question that the FX9 is the superior camera, but the FX6 has grown on me and I'm happy with the results.

                      I noticed one strange thing...
                      The rendered file coming from DaVinci Resolve has not the same look if you open it in VLC or in Quicktime.
                      Actually, the VLC version corresponds to what you see on the DVR timeline. The rendered file with QuickTime looks wrong and washed out: less contrast, less saturation, different Gamma.
                      I've not found from where it's coming. I tested different rendering options in DVR, different color space in the timeline config, the difference is still there.
                      There is nothing to adjust or configure in Quicktime (I'm on a Mac)
                      I'm missing something, but I don't see what

                      Below an example. Same rendered file opened in Quicktime (left) and in VLC (right). VLC corresponds to what you see on the timeline.

                        I've not read all, but it seems that there is an answer here:

                          Quicktime has always been pretty bad for me when it comes to displaying videos as they should appear; VLC is usually more accurate (or at least closer to what I see in Resolve).

                          That said, sometimes I've found the opposite to be true (especially when viewing footage exported from FCPX).

                            Will the v90 sdxc cards record UHD 120fps on the fx6?

                              My Sony TOUGH cards do it with no hiccups. Hours and hour of 120 fps footage shot on them.

                                Not only are the V90 cards fast enough, almost all of my 120 fps footage is shot on V60 TOUGH cards. And I shoot a lot of 120 fps footage.
