SONY NEX EA50 hall of fame

I went back for a second time after shooting with the stock lens before, then it was just a quick shoot testing the camera for the first time but now I decided to do it again, and better, with my prime lenzes.

Shot with the Sony nex ea50eh with 3 primes, a Samyang 14 mm f2.8, a 35mm f1.4 and a Tamron macro 90mm f2.8. I used a custom build slider with a manfrotto 701 head attached to it. Steadycam shots done with a blackbird. The footage has been sharpened a bit and some contrast and saturation was applied, I used the Factory PP3 setting, this one gives you the most dynamic range.

About halfway the shoot a spot is visible on the wide angle shots, apparently some snow or dirt got on the lens and I didn't see it, main reason for that was that I didn't use the long loupe to check focus but looked directly on the viewfinder with peaking enabled. With the loupe I probably would have noticed.

Note to myself: During a shoot often check to see if the lens is still clean! :)

It was -3 and had to shoot with my gloves on, not an easy thing to do with all the small buttons on the camera.

I didn't use a vest for the blackbird and the whole set up is too heavy to use for extended periods but the blackbird handled much better then with my 550d which is much ligher, there was more inertia in movements giving me more smooth tilt and pan controll.

The music is an adapted version from Andries de Haan's "Extraction" and "Fader":

So far I"m really enjoying this camera.
