Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

Just got my hands on a Sony NX-5 which I have bought as a second camera, I will be using it for the first time on Monday filming in a hospital for a corporate production. Although most of the work will be done using a Sony PMW-350K I still need hand held cutaways and tracking shots that would be impossible using a shoulder mount camcorder like the 350. I hope to get the pieces to camera done tomorrow then add Mondays footage during the week. I need to get this done and dusted before a week on Monday so hopefully you will see my user video review nearer the end of this week.

I had a play with the camera today and so far I have been blown away with the pictures… the AVCHD codec has come a long way since it’s early days in the domestic arena.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
