Photo : Taken with the Sony A7s with a 24-70 f4 lens in 2 exposures for HDR rendering in Photoshop.

I decided to take the Sony PXW-X180 up to the world famous Kelpies to give it a run through, all went well apart from the SD card adapter which seems to be faulty so everything had to be recorded onto a 32G SxS card.


My thanks to Graeme and his son Gavin for assisting me today.


We had great weather for November and it was only when I decided to return that same evening to get some low light footage that the rain appeared. The footage is now in post awaiting me to edit it, I hope to have the review posted some time this week.


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.

One thought on “Sony PXW-X180 “Now in post”

  1. I’m looking forward to your opinions on this camera, as the specs look great but the only review posted on the B&H Photo website mentions some serious colour matching problems.
