S-Log on the F3

The new Sony PMW-F3 has an S-Log update coming in April. It’s been available for years in Sony’s higher end gear, but this will be the first time it’s more commonly available. Many people still have no real idea what it is, or how to use it. Here’s a quick explanation on PVC, but the the real info is in the Sony whitepaper linked at the end of the article.

My F3 should arrive in mid March. I’m getting impatient.

Selling my EX3

It’s time to sell my stalwart Sony PMW-EX3. It’s in very good condition. Owned since new, just over 2 years, never rented.

No mechanical or electronic issues, cosmetically very good. Used on shorts, corporates, tvcs and a few low budget features.

Comes with standard accessories and the larger BP-U60 battery instead of the BP-U30.

Sony SxS 8GB, Sandisk 16GB SDHC x 3 plus 4 x SDHC SxS Adapters.

Also includes some extras-

Chrosziel CMB-R20 2-Stage 4×4 Mattebox.
DM-Accessories Baseplate.
Kata CC-197 Bag.
Tiffen T1 77mm IR Filter.

Make me an offer.

Some Tests

Geoff Boyle who runs the fantastic CML lists has put up a dynamic range test on some of the current digital cameras. Unsurprisingly, one camera performs better than it’s manufacturer claims, one performs significantly worse. Not unexpected though. Each picture represents a half stop.

AF100 On Set

Art Adams has a short article on the AF100 in use on a TVC. Some good, more bad, pretty much as I expected.
