  1. Hey all,   We recently finished this music video and wanted to share with you.  Shot mostly on the FS100 with a few pickup shots on the NEX-5n.  One of the biggest challenges and disappointments was how the camera performed in the club scene.  The internal codec falls apart whenever there is a flash of bright color (or rapidly changing color) as there is likely not enough bandwidth to represent the varying information using the inter-frame compression.  Surprisingly, there is very little info on this (we've researched before shooting).  An outboard recorder woul
  2. Great stuff indeed, Andrew!   One question: what are those harsh blue outlines around the leaves, top of the frame at 1:52?  To me they look like a botched HDR merge or something.  Is that an artifact of the program used to debayer and can be fixed in the future, or a limitation of the camera?   I would have loved using this on my last shoot.  We did a night club scene with lots of high contrast color lighting.  Used the FS100, which was the "low light" king with the "best H.264 implementation."  Well, the codec got obliterated by the irregular flashing l

Or allows to film shoulder-height with the sun as backlight as in the shot at 00:17. There may be some shots that were [i]not[/i] filmed in the evening. Much dynamic range I can't detect. I only see midtone definition, typical for shooting with an ND, underexposing slightly and raising the gamma in post. The right thing to do, but no demonstration of the FS100's special fitness for the kind of magic cinematography we are Andrews fans for.
  4. Looking good, Andrew! Powerful imagery, as always. Bold move to shoot in direct midday sunlight without scrims/bounce cards. Most cameras can't deal with that much dynamic range ;-) Can you elaborate why a rotating lens front poses an issue with the fader? I have been using the new LCW Fader ND Digi-Pro HD with older Nikon zooms (non-G). Unlike Canon, these have manual aperture rings, so no need for an expensive Metabones adapter. But the front on the Nikon zoom rotates and, while this is annoying since you have to feel around for the the fader's dial handle, it does not s
