0 Sony FS7 Review – Shooting 150fps in the dead of night

Ferrari have a DNA. Cinema cameras have a DNA. You have to go back decades to see it evolve into the force it is today. For Ferrari it is the very specific engine sound and the looks. Arri are that spirit to cinema cameras. The DNA of the Sony FS7 is a compromise. Half EX1 and half cinema camera, the ergonomics of the buttons, dials and menus need a complete overhaul in my opinion. So Sony haven’t…

0 This is the Sony FS7

The Sony FS7 is Sony’s next e-mount Super 35mm camera, shooting 4K XAVC. Thanks to the E-mount you can use Canon EF lenses on it and the Metabones Speed Booster for when a full frame look is required. It has a 180fps slow mo mode, with an ergonomic design much improved and closer to the Canon C300, with top handle, top mounted LCD and built in ND filter. It really looks…

0 Official firmware update brings XAVC-S and 120fps to Sony RX10

When I reviewed it earlier this year I found the RX10 to be an excellent shot getter – but it was also a shot loser as well due to the weak AVCHD implementation. Many of my images suffered from too much mud and a break-up of detail in certain situations. So this is very welcome news from Sony. The V2.0 RX10 firmware adds 50Mbit/s XAVC-S codec and just as excitingly 120fps for slow-mo, making the RX10 a…

0 Panasonic GH4 – Slow-mo at 96fps and 4K rolling shutter test

All tests based on pre-production model Here we come to some areas which aren’t perfect on the GH4, but which nevertheless are both a step forward from the GH3. I like what Panasonic have started here with 96fps slow-mo. This is the first consumer camera to deviate from the video standard of 60p to give us a genuinely useful creative tool which sets the ball rolling for improvements in future…

0 Spellbinding 1200fps slow motion from the Phantom Flex and the mysterious 65mm Phantom 65 Gold

Cheetahs at 1200fps on Vimeow I love slow mo and it is great to be able to do it now on the Nikon 1 series at 400fps, albeit limited to a low-fi look (the 1200fps on that camera is extremely low resolution!). Now the technique has gone 65mm – yes medium format sized. The Phantom 65 Gold is a 14bit raw 4K cinema camera. It can shoot 200fps in 4K mode,…

49 Sony HX9v vs Canon 600D – DSLR gets beat by compact in video mode

Buy it now – Sony HX9v This is what happens when you don’t overhaul your imaging chips for 3 years, Canon. The new Sony HX9v compact out-resolves the 600D’s video mode for resolution, and has 1080/60p. It is also a lot closer to a DSLR in terms of dynamic range than I expected it would be. It fits in my pocket and has a stabilised 24-380mm lens. It has an…
