Last saturday, we filmed a new firedance video I've called "Bright eyes" with Franziska. This is my first test with the Sony NEX-5n with his 16.1MP CMOS sensor at night. I worked with manual settings. The sequences were filmed at 3200 (also shot a few pictures at 6400 ISO) with the following lenses : Tokina 16mm F2.8, Sony 50mm F1.8 and Tamron 90mm F2.8. I'm interested to do more tests with high ISO level in the next days !
Yes, it's true when we have a look on night footage filmed with a Red Epic we are dreaming and we want one to film firedance sequences... Anyway I find this camera Sony Nex-5 just amazing ! It's a little bit bigger than my iPhone and his price is about 600 $ !
Many thanks to Franziska for her patience, her spellbinding poi dance performance and her bright and beautiful smile. More informations on firedancing.ch
