FS5 Owners -- Thinking about using an FS5 for short film
I'm thinking about filming an upcoming short film with a Sony FS5 and I'd like to hear from owners / users first hand. I already own a C100 + Atomos Ninja 2 and a Sony A7S.
I've never shot with a Sony FS5, nor handled one, but the Director and I like the idea of having slow-motion available to us. Also, I assume that the Sony FS5 and Sony A7S will be easier to match during color-grading as opposed to the C100 and Sony A7S.
What are the cons that I'm looking at if I go with the FS5?
I heard the menu is hard to navigate, but I does owning and operating the A7S give me a leg up in that department?
How true is it that the 4K image is not up to par with the 1080p image?
What was your learning curve when you first got the camera? One big concern is that the shooting schedule will be pretty intense and I'd hate to get bogged down with technology. With the C100, I basically know the ins and outs and navigating around the camera is pretty much second nature to me.
Thanks in advance for any help!
