  1. I guess it was just a problem with my external harddrive, it plays fine for me on youtube as well. I bassically used the same chips used in the kineraw camera which is running on linux so it was not too hard to find drivers for it, right now its still on a deveolpment board, so its not really "small" its about as big as my ikea coffee table.. there are still lots of problems with it and I dont know if I can make it really that usefull, after thinking about it I get the price for the shogun as they have to get back their development costs, but really the hardware is not worth that much, This whole project has taken me all Winter pretty much (I am a engineering student so I had the winter off). It was really ment as a proof of concept for a cheap 4K "Recorder". And I think some chinese Company will probably release a recorder like that on the cheap (wink at Blackmagic) Now, stuff like ProRes Encoding is a totally different thing and I find it crazy what Blackmagic has pulled of with the pocket, thats just awesome engineering. This thing will never be a replacement for the shogun .. sadly
  2. Hey guys, I build a 4K Recorder out of some ghetto parts, right now that still includes a Laptop and is really not that useful, its not even battery powered yet. However I did a small test and some of you might appreciate it, its by far the cheapest solution to get 4K out of the A7s but requieres a lot of knowledge of electronics and soldering (+- 200€) I am going to try to make it battery powered and smaller and add a Monitor, I think the price for the Shogun is too high. First priority is going to ditch the laptop in favour of dedicated electronics. It is also still dropping some frames (or rather holding them, weird maybe one of the chips is having a timing problem). The A7s HDMI signal is actually a very normal signal, nothing special going on (contrary to the FS700 for example, which is some kind of weird Sony bullshit) I uploaded a test to youtube, I just used a cheap Igus slider with the A7s just pressed to the slider, I lost the stupid screw for the Tripod Head... if anyone wants the source .tif files or the Rendered H264, let me know and I might upload them.
  3. Hey, I am looking for a real cheap alternative for the Senheiser Bodypacks (gw3 or whatever they are called, you know what I am talking about) I already have a couple of those, but I want to build a really cheap/small/effective way of sending audio (LTC) Timecode to multiple cameras (14 at the same time). The cameras are spaced quiet far from another so we cannot run cables. The LTC Timecode will be generated by a smartphone (I programmed my own App for that) and then send out to a transmitter, with small receivers on the cameras, doing this with the senheisers would be total overkill since audio Quality does not really matter. Not that it matters, cameras will all be FS700 without external recorders.
  4. Also, when using the Silent shutter mode, its not using the Picture Profiles, that way you can easily preview what the footage will look graded,, as soon as you hit that record button it switches back to SLOG2. Pretty Awesome! EDIT: it seems to be a Bug, You can not turn the Picture Profiles on when Silent shutter is enabled, BUT you can Enable PPs first and then enable Silent shutter after, When not shooting Video you can select all the picture Modes that you are used to, but as soon as you hit that Movie record button you are right back into your Picture Profiles, AWESOME!
  5. Well none of those cameras has E-Mount, so my speedbooster will not work... I bought a BMCC and sold it, not useful for my work at all.
  6. its really quit funny what some people are recommending here... like buying a 50D and hacking it for RAW, you can not be serious. I totally want huge files that are a pain in the ass in Post, shot on a camera that has no way of recording audio, its just not practical from a professional prospective, and yes I already have 2 5D3(why else would I have a huge collection of canon Glas) , which are crap for video (compared to the Fs700 at least) . The BMPCC is a toy, in the field you never want to record in Prores, leave alone 12bit RAW. (when doing Documentary/TV work). The last documentary we shot on 2 cameras (FS700 and 550D) left us with ruffly 360Gb of footage. imagine this in RAW or ProRes, Storage is still too expensive for those kinds of work. (Not only do I need to backup 2x in the Field but also copy everything to the workstations RAID and then Backup on Tape) My real question was: is the 5R/6/7 better than the 5N when it comes to video. if yes, Why? I only want this camera because of the speedbooster and E-Mount so that we can, in the field swap lenses quickly and effective with the Fs700 .
  7. Well since I already have the EF-NEX speedbooster, I wont really want to buy the non existing EF-MFT adapter. Why would I choose the old NEX5N over the NEX5R?
  8. Hi there. I am a Media Engineering student and I am now part time working at a small production company, doing almost everything (Cutting, Grading, filming, sound...) . And I am allowed to use their FS700 for my personal projects (which I have LOTS of) They also have a NEX-EF Speedbooster . in the last couple years, I invested heavily in Canon Glas, since I am a photographer at heart ;) and I also have a HUGE collection of Konica/AR mount Glas (I mean, HUGE!!) Which I got as a present a couple years back. So.. I made the mistake of buying a Panasonic G6 , Great camera, awesome in Video mode, resolution like no other "Dslr" i have ever seen(personally...) But the 2x Crop is killing my otherwise awseome hexanon Lenses. BUT, I now have this Speedbooster, so I decided to switch to SONY Nex. I can use my Konica Glas(no speedbooster.. sadly) as well as all the Canon Glas I have (All great L lenses) . So here is my question, which is the best sony NEX for video? I can not find any tests on the NEX6.. I Do not care at all about photo mode, lowlight is a Plus but not as important as resolution, and it needs to stand up to quiet brutal Grading in post. We are going to use this camera as a B camera for the Fs700 replacing the 550D . I wont be able to buy the new A7/r so only NEX APs-c options. Thanks for helping me here, I kinda got lost reading a million reviews and I do not really get all the NEx 5/N/R/T differences when it comes to video.
