I am sending it this afternoon. It's in the original codec that the NF captured.

nanoflash + nex-vg10

I runing many test with my new NEX-VG10 and Nanoflash, they comunicated perfect. The best performance betwen is to put the Nanoflash in PSF progress check: yes; and the nanoflash recognized the signal as 29,97p not 59i; then undercrank to 24p, then you have a beatifull 24p from your Nex-VG10 in the nanoflash quality.

Dear Gerardo,

Thank you very much for posting your results.

I am assuming that the HDMI output is clean and you like the qualiity of the images produced by the Sony NEX-VG10 camera + nanoFlash.

This means that, the NEX-VG10 with the nanoFlash, one can record in

1080p24 (23.976p),
1080p30 (29.97p) and
1080i60 (1080i59.94)

If the camera also supports 1080i50, then the camera + nanoFlash will be able to record

1080i50 and
1080p25 and
other frame rates.

Since you were using Over and Under-Cranking to achive 24p, you may not have audio.

If you record 1080p30 (1080p29.97) without Over and Under-Cranking, then you will have audio.

In our Over and Under-Cranking modes, we support audio at certain crank rates, but not all.

In our PSF to Progressive modes, we support audio in every case.

This great news. Sounds like I jumped the gun buying the 50i/25p Vg10. However, do you think I could get 23.98 or 24p buy undercranking on the nanoflash? BTW I love the image you get with VG10 - nanoflash and good old prime lens with adapter. Closest I have seen to super16 or 3 perf-35 at an indie budget. And alot lighter than an Arri 2C.

Dear Terrance,

Yes, I think you can get 1080p24 from your 1080i50 version of the NEX-VG10.

I do not think you can get 1080p23.976 by using our undercranking feature, however, just 1080p24.

We would have to test this to be certain.

The other question is whether we would have audio or not.

Thanks. I will give it go. I had planned to shoot at 25p and then in post slow down to 24p and do the 4% audio adjust to get the sync and pitch. It work with my last feature and the Europeans have been doing it for years. However getting 24p would be the ticket. As the audio when under or over-cranking: does the audio just dis-engage?

Dear Terrance,

We only support audio in a few crank options.

I need to discuss this with our Chief Engineer.

Each and every cranking combination (Base Frame Rate + Crank Rate) requires special code in the nanoFlash to support audio.

We may, in the future, be able to support more of the popular combinations with audio.
This is not a promise at this time.

To answer your question, "Does the Audio Just Disengage":
I think this depends on the combination.
I will have to get some more information from our lab before I can answer your question accurately.

nanoflash + nex-vg10

Dear Dan and Terrance

hey, vg10 + nanoflash are a great companion togeter:
I just confirm that the signal is precompretion in a chroma key test; and you can pull out 24p from your vg10 in the nanoflash, you have to turn on the PSF recording mode in the nanoflash and then undercracking to 24p 24, and the audio is sincronic too.

Did you get any sense of how much it is pre-compressing, like HDCAM? Your end result, they are Progressive Segmented Frames then?

Dear Terrance,

While I am not in Chile performing the tests with Gerardo, I am certain that the output of the NEX-VG10 is Progressive Segmented Frames

I read Gerardo email wrong, so that's great - PSF 24P, precompressed and good chance of audio sync. For the price and knowing how Sony is a bit tight with features, the camera with the feature packed nano is a great deal!

EVU or LCD monitor

Gerardo, what are you thinking of using for a field monitor? Bought a lower end 7" marshal but not the greatest. Are you going to look at the Redrock or Zacuto EVF when they get out?
