XF100 Static Test

I shot this yesterday when the sun finally broke out (for awhile). As for the footage, it is what I expected. Operationally however, one thing I kept running into was in using the focus ring. I'm left handed and when using the side viewfinder, my hand kept bumping into it when I went to adjust focus. Perhaps an old habit that will correct with time. The main thing I'm not thrilled with is the rear evf. Perhaps a function of size, but I feel that the color and resolution leave little to be desired. Handheld tests next weekend.

welcome to the forum and thanks for the posting.

a couple of quick thoughts-

the camera does the color green well

i thought the audio (sounds of nature) was done well.

external mic?
