    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=

            For those that don't know, my RED EPIC along with my lenses got stolen before Christmas last year. Everything I had left in the house, such as RED accessories, Panasonic GH4 with lenses etc....I had to sell to pay rent. As I couldn't take on any work as clients wanted me to shoot on RED. Their budget and my budget couldn't afford hiring gear. The video goes into more detail.. I put together a quick video saying thank you to all the lovely people that have been helping me out, to get me back on track. Shot on: Blackmagic Ursa Panasonic GH4 Sigma Art lenses Sennheiser EW100 G3 Lav Mic Graded with James Miller's 'Deluts' http://delutspb.businesscatalyst.com/index.html
