The RX10 arrived, remember how excited I was about this camera? Unfortunately mine slipped through quality control and was DOA. Well, not completely, it would power up and I could set the time, date etc, however, once I switched to 1080/24p mode it produced the following message
more after the break (more…)
My friend Johnny already shot a mini documentary with his Sony RX10!
“With so many inventive features I was very excited to finally start shooting the little “custom made” mini doc you see above. My plan was to simulate a real news/documentary run&gun situation when mostly available light is what you have and filming time is very limited. After all, I believe that this camera is aimed for VJ’s (video journalists) and is NOT meant to replace the work/look with a large sensor camera in any way.”

Had to pick up a friend from Grand Central Station today. Got there 15min early, did not bring a camera but had my droid. Took some photos and a few video clips. Edited in FCP, desaturated, noise reduction, contrast adjustment. If you are wondering how the Droid holds up against, lets say, the Canon 5D mark II? check out this clip

Walking around mid town, east village and china town with no particular goal other then then to capture traditional street photography inspired video clips, which I am a big fan of. Check it out and let me know what you think. 0:25through 1:10 was shot with the 7D and 12-24mm mounted on the Flycam. The rest tripod, steady bag and hand held. Lenses: 70-200mm, 100mm 2.0, Sigma 50mm 1.4, 17-55mm. 5D for clips at 1:37, 2:10 and 2:20, at ISO 3200 and 50mm 1.4 an 100mm 2.0, the rest was shot with the 7D, ISO range 400 (daylight) to 3200. Grading in FCP, mostly just desaturated and contrast added. The night clips from the 7D required noise reduction just to match the night shots from the 5D straight out of the camera, truly outstanding when it comes to low light, the 5D. The 7D exhibits more noise (about 1 to 1.5 stops behind 5D in terms of sensitivity) and can’t quite match the 5D‘s dynamic range . The two cameras complement each other very well. Hope you enjoy!
