BVE Interviews…Alister Chapman talks about FW v2 for the Sony PXW-FS7

Categories: Miscellaneous 1 Comment


First of our BVE exclusive interviews is with Alister Chapman talking about Sony’s new V2 firmware for the PXW-FS7 out at the end of March 2015.


Alister explains why the XQD series of cards comes with its own card reader.


Going over the questions with Alister, we use the PXW-FS7 for the main interview filming XAVC I at 1080 50p 185Mbps and the Sony PXW-X70 filming 1080 50p XAVC HD (LongGOP) can you tell the difference.

    yeah, let’s don’t make the FS7 a cheap F55 !. On a separate topic I see that you use a shotgun (probably condenser, on phantom) for interviews on the UWP plug-on: I find it brilliant ’cause you don’t bother setting up a lav on the talent or holding a cardioid close to the mouth. But I find the plug-on VERY low on sensitivity, in particular with a dynamic mic. How do you find the audio track with a condenser? loud enough?
