excellent video quality
no need for additional lights, everything was shot with available light
due to the small footprint, the A7s can be rigged up
any way you want
constant aperture on the Zeiss 24 70mm f4, image stabilization a plus, even on the gimbal
Came TV 3 axis gimbal
Polsen Lav set up worked like a charm, good sound quality
ikan VK7i, great image quality and viewing angle
THE NOT SO GOOD:
to get the most out of S Log2, one is pretty much stuck with ISO 3200, there is the option to go up in ISO values, however, if you plan to grade it heavily beyond applying a basic LUT, you will start to see noise pretty quickly.
Shooting outside, ISO 3200 will give you a headache
Extending barrel on Zeiss 24-70mm f4 OSS
compared to more expensive gimbals, the Came-TV gimbal feels a bit fragile
not a deal breaker with this particular gimbal since it is capable of stabilizing much heavier cameras,
however, it does require the motors to work harder if balanced for the wide end and you ends up shooting at 70mm for an extended period of time. This will drain your battery quickly (bring spares).
Manual frequency scanning only with the Polsen Lav kit
shooting outside, ikan VK7i’s glossy screen surface reflects everything, useless hood
