4K Sony Alpha 7S “4K external recording only ?” UPDATED

Categories: Miscellaneous No Comments

7S-4K

The innovative α7S camera features a newly developed, 12.2 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor® CMOS sensor paired with a powerful BIONZ X image processor, allowing it to shoot at a sensitivity range of ISO 50 – 4096002 with unprecedented dynamic range and low noise.

The new model is also the world’s first camera to utilize the entire width of a full-frame image sensor in 4K video acquisition, and does this without cropping or line skipping as it can read and process data from every one of the sensor’s pixels. This allows 4K video shooters to utilize all of the artistic and creative benefits provided by the unique sensor.

“The α7S gives Sony the most complete, versatile lineup of full-frame cameras in market today,” said Neal Manowitz, director of the interchangeable lens camera business at Sony Electronics. “Between the α99, VG900, RX1, α7, α7R and now α7S models, we have completely revolutionized what it means to be a ‘full-frame’ camera, bringing a new level of quality and portability to enthusiast photographers and videographers.”

Wide ISO Sensitivity (ISO 50 – 409,6002) and Impressive Dynamic Range
Sony, the world’s largest manufacturer of image sensors, has developed a unique 12.2 MP sensor with extraordinary sensitivity that allows the α7S camera to collect dramatically more light than traditional cameras and to produce beautifully detailed, low-noise images in even the darkest environments.

The camera also features a newly developed on-sensor technology that allows it to optimize the dynamic range throughout the entirety of the ISO50 – 409,600 sensitivity range. This on-sensor technology also broadens the range of tonal gradation in bright environments and minimizes noise in dark scenes, allowing the camera to deliver impressive results in these extreme conditions where other cameras (and image sensors) typically struggle.

World’s First Full-Frame Camera with Full Pixel Read-out3 (without pixel binning) during Movie Shooting
With the new α7S camera, the high-speed read out of the 35mm full-frame image sensor combined with the high-speed processing of the BIONZ X processor enables significant improvements in video quality.

These powerful components allow the camera to process data from all of the sensor’s pixels and output stunning HD and 4K (QFHD 3840 x 2160 pixels) video3 while utilizing the full-width of the sensor. In addition to the benefits for low-light shooting, the read out of all pixels frees the video from aliasing, moiré and false color artifacts (as opposed to pixel binning) to achieve the highest quality video.

7S-with-Meccano

Additional Pro-Quality Video Functions
In video mode, the α7S can output 4K video4 at QFHD (3840×2160) to an optional external 3rd party 4K recorder, and can record full HD (1920×1080) at frame rates of 60p, 60i, 30p and 24p directly to a compatible memory card. Video modes can be changed from full-frame to APS-C (super 35mm equivalent) if desired, and in this crop mode, the camera can support high frame rate 120fps shooting at standard HD resolution (1280 x 720p), creating a 5x slow-motion effect.

The α7S camera is also equipped with S-Log2 gamma. Common to Sony’s range of professional video cameras, S-Log2 expands the dynamic range by up to 1300% to minimize clipped highlights and loss of detail in shadows. Additionally, for the first time ever in a Sony α camera, the α7S adopts the workflow-friendly XAVC S recording format in addition to AVCHD and MP4 codecs. XAVC S format allows for full HD recording at a data rate of 50 mbps with lower compression for improved video quality.

Other specialist video functions on the new camera include a picture profile that can adjust settings like gamma, black, level and color adjustment, and can be saved for use in a multi-camera shoot. It also has Full HD and 4K base band HDMI® output, time code/user bit for easier editing, synchronous recording feature with compatible devices, various marker and zebra displays on both the LCD screen and viewfinder and can dual record XAVC S as well as MP4 (1280×720 @30p).

The camera also has a Multi-terminal interface shoe that is compatible with Sony’s XLR Adaptor Microphone Kits (XLR-K1M plus a new model under development), allowing the use of professional microphone systems.

Low-light Shooting Advantages
The high ISO sensitivity range of the α7S camera is extremely effective for still image shooting, especially in low-light conditions, where the camera can shoot at high shutter speeds while keeping noise as low as possible. This is particularly useful for shooting indoor, dimly lit sporting events or other situations where most cameras typically struggle.

The camera is also equipped with the same high-precision Fast Intelligent AF system as the α7R camera, with drastically improved low-light AF sensitivity that can go as low as -4EV.

Expanding α Mount System and New Power Zoom Lens for Movie Shooting
Directly compatible with the growing family of E-mount lenses, the α7S camera can also be used with A-mount and others lens systems with optional adapters. Sony’s complete α lens system now includes 54 total lenses for both A and E mounts, including several premium offerings from Carl Zeiss® and G Series Lenses.

As a whole, Sony’s E-mount lens system is particularly well-suited for video shooting, with a variety of models containing “movie-friendly” features like smooth focusing, powered zoom control, and silent iris/aperture control. Building on this, Sony has announced development of a brand new, full-frame power zoom 28-135mm F4 lens E-mount lens that is an ideal match for the powerful movie capabilities of the α7S model.

Pricing and availability of the α7S full-frame interchangeable lens camera will be announced at a future date.

HDW : Sorry Sony this is not a patch on the Panasonic GH4 for professional usability, the sensor may be bigger and be slightly better in low light but in looks alone and inability to record 4K internally is a major turn off. I am assuming you did not see how badly the Canon C500 sold without an internal 4K recorder !

Panasonic PX270…”Update and Comparisons”

Categories: Miscellaneous 1 Comment

title

I have now used the Panasonic PX270 in anger during a corporate job and I am delighted with the pictures.

using-evf

A first for a professional camcorder is the ability to use the viewfinder when needed…let me explain.

Eyecup

Looks like Panasonic are stealing features from each other, my GH3 has the ability to switch from the LCD to the eyepiece via a sensor that detects your eye, that same sensor is now in the PX270 and is a joy to use. This not only saves on battery power but during a sunny shoot allows the use of the VF to check the exposure and focus.

OLED

Panasonic have really thought about this camcorder from the professional camera persons point of view, the OLED VF has all the relevant information top and bottom in black spaces while keeping the picture clear of clutter.

PX270-Sony-EX3

Another very pleasant surprise is the colour matrix has changed, no longer do we get those browny reds allowing both Sony and JVC camcorders to match. The test above taken from my 50″ Panasonic TV clearly shows the Panasonic PX270 against the Sony EX3 match almost perfectly.

filming-on-lorry

The blacks are very good indeed giving you a sharp punchy picture, its all part of the 10bit 422 output allowing you a far higher definition picture way beyond 8bit 420.

P1050002

The LCD is very good and well colour balanced though you will need to use the VF during sunny spells like 99% of all other camcorders.

270-low-light

This is a low light frame at 0dB looking over the River Clyde in Glasgow city centre taken on Saturday evening looking at the new Hydro concert hall where Justin Timberlake was performing.

100-PC

This is the same picture at 100% filmed at 720p 50Mbps @ Long GOP 50…stunning to say the least

9db-270

Low light performance is very good from the PX270 especially at 0dB once you start adding gain it only affects the dark areas. The picture detail via the 10bit 422 is fantastic.

5-Pana-cams

The yellow church lighting does nothing for this picture but the cameras tell a different story, 15 months ago these cameras would have been Sony but during todays multi cam shoot between 3 of us there were 5 Panasonic camcorders…!

Canon “C” servo zoom for C100, 300and 500 cameras (£22,500 from July)

Categories: Miscellaneous 2 Comments

Canon-zoom-web

CN7x17 KAS S – Super 35mm sensor optics

The CN7x17 KAS S has been created for the world of TV production – a fast-paced, mobile environment that conventional Super 35mm format cine lenses were not designed for. To support operators in this field, Canon’s new cine-servo lens combines decades of experience in the design of market-leading broadcast lenses with technology derived from its high-performance cine zooms – creating a tool of unprecedented quality, versatility and usability.

With a best-in-class focal length of 17-120mm, the lens is tailor-made for camera operators in traditional broadcast environments, whilst retaining the benefits of Canon’s renowned cine lenses for movie productions, where a more fluid shooting style is required.

Large sensor cameras have rapidly become established across a wide range of production categories, from drama to documentaries and current affairs. The new cine-servo lens has been designed to respond to the evolving needs of broadcast professionals, integrating perfectly into such shooting scenarios. Offering operators the best of both worlds, it provides the functionality expected from traditional broadcast lenses whilst also capturing video of the highest quality with a distinct ‘cinematic look’. Both EF-mount (CN7x17 KAS S /E1) and industry-standard PL-mount (CN7x17 KAS S /P1) variants will be available.

canon-lens-1

Built to exacting optical standards, the cine-servo lens leverages Canon’s unparalleled expertise in lens design. It supports 4K resolution shooting, with 7x magnification throughout a hugely versatile 17-120mm zoom range and a minimum T-number of T2.95, providing the flexibility to cover an unparalleled range of shooting situations with a lens of this type.

The servo drive unit makes it ideal for use in mobile productions such as  documentaries. The drive unit is the same size as those on typical portable lenses, providing the same feel in operation, and making long shoots more comfortable. High speed zoom, iris and focusing operation allow operators to respond rapidly to changes in a scene, while low speed drive functionality offers unrivalled control over slow zooming to ensure they can achieve exactly the desired effect. Immediate start-up means shots won’t be missed in dynamic situations.

The lens is also perfectly suited to tripod-mounted use, during studio or outside broadcasts, for example. Zoom, focus and iris can all be controlled using Canon’s existing zoom and focus demands, providing precise and convenient control over vital image adjustments without the operator touching the lens. Virtual studio use is also supported thanks to a sophisticated 16-bit encoder output.

In line with Canon’s unsurpassed broadcast heritage, the new cine-servo lens is user-friendly, reliable and robust. The structural design has been developed to ensure high levels of ruggedness and reliability, even in unforgiving broadcast environments – combining the finest quality optics with a weather-and-shock-proof construction that makes it suitable for use in hostile conditions.

lens-bottom

As part of the Cinema EOS System, the lens is equally at home on a movie set. The servo drive unit facilitates a mobile shooting style that is difficult to achieve with many existing cine lenses, and can also be removed completely to enable typical cinematic operation.  Re-installation is quick and simple, with no adjustment of gear positions required.  Canon’s renowned optical quality combines with support for standard accessories, including follow focus units and matte boxes, providing a truly versatile solution.

Compatible with a wide range of cameras, the CN7x17 KAS S also supports communication between lens and camera. The EF-mount version utilises Canon’s own system, whilst the PL-mount variant is the first in the Cinema EOS series to support Cooke’s /i Technology. 12-pin serial communication is also supported.

Take control with the Canon Remote Controller RC-V100

Developed in direct response to market feedback, the RC-V100 offers greater creative flexibility for Canon camcorder users by expanding the scope of possible installation locations and increasing compatibility with multi-camera shoots, freeing DoPs and cameramen to concentrate on getting the shot they really need.

Providing access to any in-camera function using the standard operating menus, the RC-V100 features dedicated interfaces that allow users control of common settings such as iris, zoom and white balance, whilst a number of more advanced adjustments, such as knee point/slope and master pedestal, can also be made directly. Support for custom settings is provided in the form of four buttons that mirror the operation of assignable camera buttons 1-4 on the body itself.

“Our customers are constantly inspiring us with their creativity and desire to use our products in new and different ways – sometimes in ways we didn’t expect. We really want to feed this creativity by expanding shooting possibilities even further, and this has resulted in the development of the new Canon Remote Controller RC-V100,” said Kieran Magee, Director of Professional Marketing, Canon Europe. “The customer feedback we receive is invaluable to us, and we hope that the addition of this new remote will enable even more of our customers to realise their vision.”

At launch, the Canon Remote Controller RC-V100 wired remote will be compatible with a range of Canon professional video cameras and Cinema EOS cameras, including the XF300-series, EOS C100, EOS C300 and EOS C500. A free firmware update will be required to provide compatibility with models announced prior to the launch of the new remote control.

New firmware and upgrades
Continuous Recording functionality will soon be available for the EOS C100, thanks to a free firmware update that will permit uninterrupted recording  and the ability for users to set in and out markers directly, in-camera. Selected moments can then be instantly accessed during editing, saving time and effort. Furthermore, the ability to record in full, particularly when shooting significant moments such as weddings or important events, allows users to access moments that might not have been spotted on the day, or to adjust the marked shots for the best possible end result. Compatible NLE software is required to take full advantage of Continuous Recording; at launch the feature will be supported by EDIUS Pro 7 from Grass Valley.

In addition, Canon is announcing the future availability of a paid-for upgrade that brings Dual Pixel CMOS AF functionality (DAF) to its professional EOS C300 camcorder. Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a ground-breaking, Canon-developed technology that expands shooting possibilities by providing smooth, fast, high-performance continuous autofocus in large sensor video cameras, to offer even greater creative flexibility in everyday use.  First announced for the EOS C100, and since requested by many EOS C300 users, this unique feature expands shooting opportunities for the popular cine camera even further.

Finally, Canon is also bringing Peripheral Illumination Correction for its CN-E35mm T1.5 L F and EF-S55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM lenses to the EOS C100, EOS C300 and EOS C500 . Peripheral Illumination Correction balances any light fall-off, or drop in illumination, that may darken the edges of an image as a result of lens characteristics or shooting conditions.

Pricing & Availability

  • The Canon Remote Controller RC-V100 and associated firmware updates are expected to be available from June 2014 with an SRP of £2,799/€2,999
  • Continuous recording on the EOS C100 is expected to be available via a firmware update from late February 2014
  • DAF functionality for the EOS C300 is expected to be available via a firmware update from May 2014 costing approximately £340/€400
  • The firmware update to enable Peripheral Illumination Correction for the CN-E35mm T1.5 L F and EF-S55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM lenses is expected to be available from June 2014
