It'd be nice for Sony to have a roadmap so we could at least see how much estimated time it'd be between releases. It's almost Apple Inc. like to release a long awaited update then release another another two bodies with 6 months.
Granted, the Alpha 1 isn't much of a video camera, but if you were seriously looking for 8K ...
This FX3 may not have many stills options like the A7SIII, but users who were looking for that form factor to primarily film motion have already picked up that body (A7SIII).
Im not interested in 6K or 8K, but I'd love to see variable ND and possibly a vertical grip that takes NP-F batteries and has 2x XLR input of some kind.
This is a fantastic stills camera. I'm sorry if you thought this would be a cinema ILC but you have to pay close attention to the specs.
The 4:2:0 and the lack of an articulating screen should've been enough to reveal to even a modest creative that this camera is trying to compete with medium format.
Once you dig down into finer details its crystal clear. The focus, eye tracking, sensor speed, (the body and form factor also add to the evidence) and lack of output options all point to the A1 being the flagship stills alpha camera.
8K and the video features just come without saying, it's Sony for one, and it's 2021 after all; there's no such thing as a digital camera without video in this day and age. Or did everyone suddenly forget about the $33,000 100MP H6D that can only do 4k?
A wonderful read and a fresh perspective.
Too often my students are caught up in how fast they can get to the industry and how fast they can punch out a script. They aren't worried about slowing down and taking their time and making sure their script is as good as can be.
Let alone being rejected even if it's a polished, decent piece of work.
We spend too much time lifting up those who've made it and don't focus much at all on how long it took them or how much work they put in. Or, on the other side, how some directors and producers were pretty much connected to the industry from birth because their parents worked in it.
The first thing that comes to mind with this is backup audio. Something I can clip to my talent in case the main wireless mic dies or has issues. I don't have to stop the interview or interrupt the production process.
Going to have about four of these in my kit.
What are you looking at? Where is this?
Either way, the only reason to show clipping is for testing highlight roll off.
I have no idea where you see 25p or 30p being used.
Well, this is the Sony mount. Name a more versatile, open mount in the industry for attaching lens adaptors?
Besides, this is the FX6 not the Venice or even an FX9. It's the most baby of the bunch so why add more to the price for an option few would use in use cases that won't warrant PL mount glass?
