1. NEX FS 100 Video Blog


    from HANGMAN | F-STOP / Added

    This is a Worldwide Exclusive. Not only did I contribute to the design of this camera but we managed to get a prototype and shoot a music video a few weeks ago. I believe we are the first independent team to shoot anything with the NEX FS100. When I got the call we were told we could have the camera for a little over 24hrs. We wanted to do more than just simply test it. But also we wanted to see what we could get out of the camera with stock lenses and recording internally. So James from www.hangmanstudios.com teamed up with Den from www.fstopacademy.com and we pulled off this amazing shoot in 48hrs. Needless to say we didn't get much sleep but we valued the opportunity and wanted to shoot as much as we could in as many environments as we could. We especially wanted to push the low light capability and use the in camera media. It shoots to SD cards, Sony Memory sticks and also has a 128GB FMU which is a solid state pack that integrates with the camera and will give up to 10 hrs record time at 24mb/s AVC HD. We shot everything at 24mb/s AVC HD and ingested into FCP and transcoded to ProRes 422 using Log and transfer. Shot over a 36 hr period in one weekend on one of only 2 prototype NEX FS 100 Cameras in the world. We used 3 lenses: A Sony Alpha 50mm f1.4 with alpha to emount adaptor A E mount 16mm f2.8 The Stock lens 18-200 f3.5-5.6 For more information on the camera you can go here http://www.sony.co.uk/biz/content/id/1237480587665?en_GB=

          Candice should be a supermodel.. she's really tall! Peter's a blessed man and he knows it. These two are absolutely in love! We shot at the beautiful Park Hyatt (www.parkaviara.hyatt.com) in Carlsbad, only 20 min away form La Jolla beach. Candice and Peter hired the amazing Thomas Bui (www.thomasbuilifestyle.com) to coordinate the event. He was incredibly attentive to the bride and helped us out any way he could. This wedding was one of the smoothest, no doubt thanks to Thomas!! I can't stop taking about the makeup crew from www.LAweddingmakeup.com; Tomoko and crew were like ninjas, seriously! They stayed with us all day and never left our side. They made sure Candice and Peter looked their best! Highly recomend checking them out!! Spencer (www.mobilemusicplus.com), the DJ was great and always kept a look out for us as events were about to begin.. Exactly what we need when working with a DJ. The ladies at La Jolla presbyterian (www.ljpres.org) were very cordial in making sure we followed the rules ;) and we certainly did our best as usual.

                I was looking for a way to enable my DSLR with the features I'm used to having with a video camera, then I heard about the electronic viewfinders (EVFs) coming to market and the next thing I knew I was on the hunt for the best one. When the boys and girls at Zacuto dreamed up the Zacuto EVF my curiosity was peaked, then SmallHD rolled out their DP4 EVF/monitor combo.... which one to buy? Watch part 1 and decide. Stay turned for part 2 when things really get interesting. If you already own one of these or another EVF, I would love to hear what you think. Questions and comments are welcome.

                  The final chapter in an electronic viewfinder comparison series highlights some of the key differences between the two systems and speaks to their ability to portray colour and exposure accurately. Thank you all with your patience in seeing Part 3 of the SmallHD and Zacuto EVF review come to a close. As always, comments and questions are welcome. Feel free to share your EVF experiences. Check out Zacuto's EVF firmware page for updates to the monitor's capabilities, since this review was created: http://www.zacuto.com/zfinderevf/evf-support

                    After weeks of testing each of these units out in the field and at home with the Chihuahuas we have lots to talk about in Part 2, including the debut of a brand new EVF feature. Comments and questions welcome! Zacuto EVF owners, you can pickup the latest EVF firmware upgrade from Zacuto including the Frame Store feature as well as new scaling settings and presets, plus 1080p signal support, here: http://www.zacuto.com/zfinderevf/evf-support SmallHD owners, SmallHD has upgraded the eye cup and firmware for this unit, making focusing a snap with focus+ and fixing the Nikon scaling issue.

                      It was a privilege to join Will & Pooja in Princeton for this amazing celebration. Rebecka and I loved Princeton and can't wait to make it back to the east coast!! Because this was a destination wedding we took some extra time before and after the wedding and spent all day shooting without thinking about any time restraint. As such we have so much solid usable highlight footage that it was a major challenge to cut down to 4 mins to fit into their song choice, many things got cut that I really wanted, as such the video (especially at the end) just feels fast and short.. something I might revise in the future. Since there were so many editing options as mentioned above, we created a second, substantially different Studio version. We are using personally selected royalty free music from our friends at TheMusicBed.com. Our Studio version should make it's way online in here in the near future. Enjoy! -M Tech Notes: 1080 24p 5DM2; FCPX; Cinevate Cyclops Simplis rig; Cinevate FLT; Manfrotto monopod; SmallHD DP6 monitor; Glidecam 2000.
