I think it is fair to mention some of the projects we did with the new Sony NEX-FS100 camera at Baza Media 2.1. Camera is performing quite o.k. for now. No new quirks were found next to those already observed in first impressions post. I am still worried about build quality a bit. This camera is not build to last. And for now nothing is broken but some small screw on the handle. We will know more in the future.
First project was a car show Makine, presenting the new Volkswagen Jetta 1.2 TSI. Also used Canon 5D MkII.
As soon as I got the Nikon lens adapter I did some tests which I still have to put together and present is some future post.
I was actually doing some comparison tests between Nikon and Canon glass and also between 5D and FS100 resolution. This will also be mentioned in details in some future post.
You can get the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G lens for very cheap on Amazon and is perfect for interviews and other low light situations.
Canon lens adapter is somewhat stupid cause it doesn’t have an option to change aperture but for this price it is perfect. And the lens being wide open was never any serious problem. [wink] And if you need to bring the light levels down you just use a Fader ND filter.
Commercials for Spar were recorded in a quickly manner with reflectors only in Kranjska Gora. Kit lens was used on FS100.
