How do you get yourself ready for a golf trip to Scotland. Shoot yourself in super slow mo. My friend and DP Dave Sanders collaborated with me on our little golf test with a pre-production Sony NEX-FS 700.
We shot our spot at 240 fps, where you still get full resolution at 1080P. Set at Cine gamma 1, we used my Digioptical 18-50 T3, and Red 50-150 T3 PL lens with the MTF E mount to PL adapter. All on a Zacuto baseplate, and Chrosziel MB 456 Mattebox, and follow focus. I edited it in FCP 7, and used Magic Bullet Looks 2 to grade. A good chance to see how this codec worked in Looks 2.
We did shoot the CU of the ball at 960 fps, but did do a full swing. Just a tap for "TV", but it still looked real. To see any compression of the ball we would have to shoot at 10 000fps.
The second part are frame rates from 120 fps to 960. You can see the difference after you pass 240. I left these shots ungraded. I think an insert shot at 960 like the CU could work. Used sparingly, for emphasis.
Please be gentle critiquing my swing, unless your a PGA teaching Pro. :)
Using my Sony Z7 + Sigma 50-500 zoom (with MTF Services' adapter between them) I had expected the flight to head out over SFO - 2 to 3 miles away to the east. Instead, after the loop over San Francisco, they flew west of San Bruno Mountain and then flew more or less right over our house! I hadn't expected that, so the handle for the head got in the way and I couldn't point at it when it was straight up. Additionally, the MTF adapter is purely mechanical, so this was manual zoom/focus/exposure... not too hard when the subject is at an appropriate distance. Not easy when it is too close and flying too fast!

I shot this test footage with the F55, recording the XAVC 100mb, and 4K codec. Transcoded in Davinci Resolve 9.1 lite to Pro Res hq. Edited in Premiere CS6.
We shot overcranked in S&Q mode to 60 fps, as well as some 23.98. Hypergamma 4, and S-log2 were used. Only colour grading was to white balance a couple of shots at beginning that looked blue. ISO ranged from 1250 to 5000. We're trying to show footage straight out of the can.
I used a Tokina 11-16mm, Nikon 180mm lens with MTF Nikon adapter, and Red 50-150 PL lens
