  2. Hands on Sony A-99 in a simulated news/documentary environment

    Sony’s latest full frame HDSLR is clearly attempting to challenge the competitors by introducing a well equipped camera. So how good is it?

    Spending a day with the Sony A99 left me with mixed emotions.
    Sony listened very carefully to some of our need as documentary run&gun shooters but failed short delivering the “ultimate” picture….Why having aliasing and moiré in an advanced generation of HDSLR is beyond my understanding. (vimeo.com/50980422)

    By having the camera for a day, my aim was to simulate “true to life” short feature assignment. In this short video sample no lights were used, the footage was not color corrected, ambient sound was recorded with the built in camera stereo mics and the interview/voiceover was recorded with Sony’s new XLR adapter the $800 XLR-K1M.

    Camera strengths:
    -Clean HDMI output (on Ninja 2, camera must be set to “HDMI resolution-Auto” and not 1080p).
    -Green dot at the center of the picture as an additional focus aid tool
    -Dynamic range looks good ( non scientific sample :) vimeo.com/50982162)
    -Front camera wheel which can be assigned to control aperture or audio levels (not when the XLR kit is connected, then use the level wheels on the kit).
    -Monitor and control audio levels while recording
    -Good EVF and LCD allowing shooting in minimize configuration
    -Dual SD card slots

    Camera weakness:
    -The A99 produced a decent image although moiré and aliasing is clearly there!
    -No histogram in video mode
    -No “zoom function” for accurate focusing
    -Audio meters have no db levels and there is no change in meters color when sound is clipped.

    XLR-K1M-XLR kit

    This kit transforms the audio section of the camera to a more professional machine and is a very welcome aid to the professional shooter.

    It’s a pity Sony chose to sale this kit for $800. A moderate price would have done justice to this product bringing it within reach of many more people.

    Functionality wise, I have no clue why Sony decided not to connect the kit directly to the hot shoe and instead designed a wire out of the kit to be connected to the shoe leaving no place for the kit itself to be connected on top of the camera….

    Vor wenigen Wochen hat mich Sony angefragt, ob ich die neue Sony Alpha 99 testen und in ihrem Auftrag damit ein Video drehen möchte. Ich erhielt nur ganz wenige Informationen über diese Kamera, die damals noch nicht einmal einen Namen hatte. Natürlich habe ich ja gesagt und mich riesig darauf gefreut, wieder einmal einer der ersten zu sein, der diese Kamera testen durfte. Das Resultat kann sich sehen lassen. In diesem Beitrag stelle ich die neue Alpha 99 vor und am Schluss findet ihr wie immer ein Video, das ich mit dieser Kamera gedreht habe.

    Die Videoacademy kann Dank der Hilfe von Industriepartnern ihren Schülern und Kursteilnehmern Schulungen mit immer neusten Geräten anbieten. An dieser Stelle möchten wir der Firma Dedotec (Berikon/Schweiz) herzlich dafür danken, dass sie unsere Schule und unsere Projekte so grosszügig mit professionellem Licht und Aufnahmeequipment unterstützen.

    Herzlich Charles Michel
