This video was shot over the course of a weekend in Key West, Florida to test the capabilites of the new Sony PMW-F3 camcorder. Most of the time during shooting it was just me on foot with the camera, a tripod, and a selection of four prime lenses in a backpack. Special thanks to my friend Jay Gladwell for coming along for a few hours and lending a hand.

No mattebox, filters, lights, external recorders, or other accessories were used during the shooting. Most footage was shot with the HQ 1920 24P mode and recorded to SxS cards. All slow-mo footage was shot as 1280 24P @ 60 fps. Most of the nighttime shots were done at +12db. Daytime shots are at 0db.
No color grading or post-production filters have been applied. The video is straight out of the camera. Everything was shot using two Picture Profiles I have created called VORTEX-A and VORTEX-L. Those specific settings will be talked about in Vortex Media's upcoming "Mastering the Sony PMW-F3" training DVD.
