HD Warrior Camcorder announcement of 2009 … Sony PMW-350K

Categories: Miscellaneous 2 Comments

camcorder-announcement-of-2009

So how did I come to that decision after all I have not even seen the camcorder !  I take Alister Chapmans word as gospel on this camcorder, although Alister is a Sony man his reputation as a Director of Photography (DoP) is on the line with this camcorder. Alister reckons the PMW-350 is a lot quieter than the EX-3 which up till now was the GOLD standard HD camcorder that all other camcorders in that price bracket were judged by.

2/3″ chipset is mindblowing, this camera take my word for it will be taken on by broadcast companies who are using the EX-3 at the moment with 2/3″ lens adaptors.

As I have said before and will say again Sony are trailblazers when it comes to video gear, their commitment to giving you the best quality at the cost of higher spec camcorders in their range is unsurpassed and that’s why I give the Sony PMW-350 the HD Warrior Camcorder announcement of 2009 award.

The reason this camera was posted last was because I was trying to get some information on the “R” part of the part number…I initially thought this camcorder had been blesed with the Exmor “R” chipset which would have made it very appealing…the only addition which may be of some use is the ability to film in SD mode.

“Handi 5Dmk2″ a manual in your iPhone

Categories: Miscellaneous No Comments

APPs-for-Video-5D2

As you can see the Canon 5D Mk11 is becoming the de-facto indie HD film like camera thanks in no small part to Philip Bloom DOP, with that in mind and the amount of switches, presets and menus the camera has to offer you need the “Handi 5Dmk2″ APP from the Apple store. I am in no doubt that a 7D version is on it’s way.

This is a great wee APP and well worth the £1.19, basically it’s a hand book in your iPhone, very handy when your memory fails you out on a job.
