BVE is almost upon us, this is the configuration I will be filming next week at BVE, the remote handle towards the back giving me full control of the lens, on/off and menu system.
Sony’s new hybrid digital radio mic has sadly taken a back seat, literally, as the Ledgo video light needs to sit on the front shoe. This configuration does not allow you to use the front hot shoe on the FS7 giving you control of the radio mics power and audio which is a shame.
I got two 128G “G” XQD cards on Friday, the lens being the last part of the jigsaw, Sony told me that the FS7 has been a fantastic success story which is why we are still getting dribs and drabs via Japan. The Sony 28-135 f4 lenses are like hens teeth but are hoping for the first delivery next week. I have the lens on order from H Preston Media so lets hope I will be fully kitted out before BVE next week.
The front mic is an older smaller Panasonic camera mic and the cut to size Rycote wind jammer is no longer made, sadly. I hope to meet some of you at BVE so look out for us buzzing around Excell a week on Tuesday.
