Guest Ebrahim Saadawi Posted April 12, 2014 Share Posted April 12, 2014 Rolling shutter does not just affect us when we're panning the camera like a mad man whilst filming a straight fence. No, rolling shutter affects the "entire" image, you see rolling shutter ugliness with "every" bit of movement, from the subtlest of handheld movements to whip pans. Plus it doesn't only occur while moving the camera, it occurs while the image moves, even if the camera is locked off. If you have someone walking at a fast pace from the end of the frame to the other whilst keeping the camera locked off, you will see rolling shutter (given it's as horrible as we see here). Rolling shutter after exceeding a certain limit, makes the camera unusable for recording moving images. Yes we could say we can still use the camera for recording locked off- motionless landscapes, but that would be called photography :) I spent a couple of hours shooting with the AX100 from sony today, the rolling shutter at 4K is absolutely horrendous. I mean, it's JELLO vision. as jello-ey as images can ever get! Thus I found my self shooting at the excellent 1080p mode and lovely codec. The camera is extremely well made and designed. When I was invited to try it I was under the impression it's a consumer little sony handycam. It turned out a much more serious camera in features, design, size, and image, It's a mini c100/300 The point is it seems Sony screwed up the 4K recording option on the A7S like they did on the AX100. But I will still get one for 1080p. Which I speculate is going to be magnificent, especially for low-light. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
