Amazing functionality, but for me - other than in a studio on sticks - it's just too big.
In the video they guy tried to awkwardly downplay how the monitor dwarfs the a7s. I felt he doesn't even quite believe himself. You can SEE it's big, why claim otherwise?
If it was only smaller - would truly be the most useful device around. Wish it was about 5'6 - 6' tops - then I would feel comfortable with it in a reasonably snug rig.
They're in fact very similar in size, so there's no contradiction. Google "Sensor sizes" for visual reference. APS-C comes from the DSLR world, and it's a bit strange they're using this terminology to describe what is essentially a video sensor, unless it's adapted from a DSLR design.
The camera is a beauty, but it was disappointing how much all the extra accessories cost, just look at it: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=aja+cion&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&...
Perhaps it would be smarter to just bundle the camera with everything needed (all the baseplates, handles, media, EVF etc.) and charge a bit more, but at least you won't feel you're being overcharged every step along the way for basic stuff - and you get the "all in one" package. Make it a "deluxe" option.
Also, a matter of taste, but still - I was unimpressed by the color science in the few examples provided, and I seem to be not the only one. The codec should be good enough to bring it to your liking, though.
And the ISO 320 is a bit outdated today...They put this whole "connectivity" issue forward, but how many of us really NEED these ethernet and thunderbolt connectors in the field?
Also, 120 fps slow-motion only in 4K RAW externally? That's a bummer...Media management is a nightmare...
PL mount? Only if you own expensive PL glass...Otherwise, the adaptable e-mount on the FS7 is amazing. Use whatever you'd like, including PL when needed, even all the time, with the adapter permanently on the camera.
No log gamma? Bummer...
Lot's of good stuff, too, but these things make it fall short, for me. I really wanted to love this camera, but even fully equipped - which adds like 50% to the price, and even if you own a $40K PL zoom like the 19-90 - you won't get convenient slo-mo and good low-light, which are often the bread and the butter for many of us.
Looks like a nice idea, but in the professional world a camera that undergoes such a procedure is usually checked on a collimator to ensure the backfocus is perfect. Not something widely available for the common shooter.
The great thing about Neat Video is custom building the noise profile to include shadows, mids and highlights. I was using it in the simple way they describe in the video, but once I actually went to their website to see how it's supposed to be done - it got even better. So do take the time and watch the tutorial for that.
