Here’s a fairly comprehensive overview of the cameras features.

F3 S-Log Demo

Abelcine have a new blog entry giving a short demonstration of the advantages of the PMW-F3 S-Log upgrade. The difference is striking, particularly in the last shot. Well worth upgrading.

The upgrade is back ordered worldwide, till the end of January, but thanks to Videocraft I have their rental S-Log installed on my F3 until Sony’s back orders are filled.

Canon C300 Rundown

Abelcine have posted an overview of the C300, along with the official RRP price of $15999US for the body only.

That puts in roughly in line price wise with the Sony F3, but the C300 lacks a 10bit 4:4:4 upgrade, a true log mode, and the dynamic range is about 1.5 stops less.

PMW-F3 1.31 Firmware

The 1.31 firmware for the F3 has just become available. Single Link-A 4:2:2 S-Log output with simultaneous HD-SDI monitor output with or with a LUT is enabled, as well as 1080/50/59.94P Dual Link S-Log.

JVC GY-HMQ10 4K

Consumer 4K is arriving. Well not really 4K, the redefined by RED 4K, which resolves around 2.8-3K with a decent lens after de-bayering. All in a 1/2 CMOS sensor, so each pixel will be that much smaller with all the attendant noise and lack of dynamic range that follows. With cheap glass, higher noise and compression, it will be interesting what this camera resolves, or what your average consumer would even play 4K back on?

EVF035W-3G Viewfinder

All of the currently available HD-SDI viewfinders are flawed in some irritating ways, be it the diopter, the panel, the build quality, the mounting system.

Here’s a new entry which hopefully improves on these problems. TVLogic EVF035W-3G.

Canon C300 Sensor

Here’s a very complete technical run down of the new Canon C300 sensor.

12 stops and 640ISO, short of the F3, but a smaller package.
