Run and Gun at it's finest: filming 3 kids, goats, with changing light in the yard and the beach, but this basic slog3 test on the Sony a7sII still impressed me.
Filmed in Picture Profile 9 at 4K (100mb). I tried to keep the exposure to +1 and keep the shutter speed to 1/60 - 1/100 with the aperture between f/4-7.1 on the Sony FE 35mm f/1.4I used a Tiffen variable ND filter to adjust for the 1600ISO.
So far, so stoked. I shot with very contrasting light (mostly back lit) and wanted to see how the shadows and clouds would do with the dynamic range. For being a quick run and gun shoot, I am impressed with this camera the very little I got to experiment with it.
A surreal land of oil & gas is visited by an unlikely yet welcomed stranger.
