If you are one of the lucky editors who will work with 4K RAW or SR codec footage from the Sony F65 camera, then you'll need to know how to get the footage off the cards and into your NLE.
Sony launch XMPilot an iPad app that lets you log shots as you shoot for direct ingest into Final Cut Pro bins
So how can you ingest 40 hours of XDCAM material and have it all logged into FCP bins in 2 hours? With Sony's new XMPilot app for iOS or Android, you do the hard work on the shoot.
The new Sony cameras put some of the other cool products on the booth into the shade. Yes, Sony had some new toys for us editors too. Video and info after the break.
A demo video that has everything, Vegas, women and Vincent Laforet shooting in a helicopter. Does the $3,000+ Sony F3 S-Log upgrade really make a difference? BTS video in the read more.
Sony are outdoing themselves at NAB with new cameras at the moment, and at fcp.co towers we definitely want one of these beauties. The F65, even the name sounds like a combat jet, looks so cool, take a peak at some of those specs - 120fps, 4K resolution and a rotary shutter to prevent that rolling shutter problem, this is one very nice piece of kit. No retail price available as of yet, but our guess is you'd probably have to re-mortgage to be able to buy one and all the lenses that go along with it. Still we can dream.
Sony are going full tilt into 3D, with the HXR-NX3D1. All the tech stuff after the break but what's of particular interest to us is that support is scheduled to enable conversion of MVC footage recorded with the HXR-NX3D1 to CineForm codec using the popular CineForm Neo3D/NeoHD as a Codec Plug-In for 3D editing. Looks like GoPro made a good decision in buying CineForm.
Philip from HDWarrior is pretty amazed by this new Sony camera, the PMWF3, especially for its low light capabilities. Last time we were on the phone to Philip, we asked him to hurry up and post this review as we've been very keen to hear his findings!
Nigel Cooper at DVuser was a lucky man, he managed to get his hands on the new Sony NEX-FS100E before its grand announcement yesterday. Another post DSLR large sensor 5D killer? Links and a Sony demo video after the break.
Matthew Allard takes delivery of Sony F3 model number 00002 and posts some real life findings and video
Jealous yes, very. Matthew Allard of Al Jazeera took delivery of a Sony F3 model number 00002 and immediately put it to work. How did it perform?
**Update 2/3/11 Firmware update & news of a 8K sensor Sony camera possibly to be shown at NAB**
You've been thinking about purchasing a Sony PMW-F3, a great camera at a great price, but then you factor in the cost of putting some prime lenses on this mother of all cameras, and suddenly you're retreating back to your DSLR double-quick time. Well think again those old Nikons you've got hanging around might just do the job. More after the break.
So most of us want to get our hands on a Sony PMW-F3 and test its capabilities, and as more and more units get out there, there should be more and more edit throughput. But while delivery is still eagerly expected by some, the guys at RealVision recently got invited to use two F3s by Sony! And the reason? To test out the camera's stereoscopic 3D possibilities. More after the break.
Sony have just announced the HDR-TD10·Handycam® camcorder which utilizes two Full HD sensors to capture true 1920x1080 3D video. Now time to read up because it won't be long before a client turns up in wanting to edit this 3D format in FCP. All the editing is done in camera at the moment because there's NO, and we think its worth shouting, NO EDITING SOFTWARE AVAILABLE at the present time.
Looking at those two 3D lenses staring at you sure makes us think of the interplanetary eco-warrior Wall-E. All the spec and more after the break.
