Sony Alpha A65-footage by Johnnie Behiri
“forever- a while” by Angel of Sona, sonaofficial.com
There is not much info about the video quality of the new Sony VDSLR cameras which are not out yet (A65/77 NEX-7), so I felt it is time to make the effort and see what the A65 can do to start with. I had the camera for a day and I’m happy to share the footage with the community.
My aim was to test general picture quality and camera usability during “normal” production environment conditions.
Angel of Sona and her producer Ingo were quick to respond to my offer for shooting a no budget “instant” music clip.
The A65 I got was very close to the final production model.
I have no doubt that after lerning the camera inside out, better picture quality can be achieved.
Besides being curios seeing the overall picture quality, I wanted to experiment low light sensitivity, codec strength when color correcting and last but not least see if moiré and aliasing are controlled in an acceptable way.
The 3 Sony lenses I got to work with are all widely available and very affordable.
