Sony NEX-VG10 + nanoFlash Working

Dear Friends,

Mr. Gerardo Campos has been testing the NEX-VG10 with the nanoFlash.

He has been able to obtain an HDMI output free of icons and viewfinder detail, and free of the "Standby" icon, etc.

And he has proven that the NEX-VG10 actaully puts out 1080psf29.97 (1080p30).

Using the features of the nanoFlash, one can obtain 1080p23.976 (1080p24) with audio.

We expect to be able to obtain 1080p25 from the 1080i50 version of the NEX-VG10, but this has not been tested yet.

Dear Friends,

Here are some additional instructions provided by Gerardo:

1. To remove all the viewfinder info in the screen you must push the button DISP on the camera,
... but if you still have the STBY in your screen, you have two ways to take it off:

A. Start to record in camera.

B. Remove the memory card from the camera.

The other important thing is that the camera must have "SHOOT W/O LENS" enabled

In the nanoFlash he has:

System|Video|Record PSF>Prog enabled

And to record 24p he has:

Video|Crank 24 24 which sets the base frame rate to 24 and a crank rate of 24.

Wow... I find this to be quite interesting!

Does this produce true 23.976 footage with the proper temporal signature?

The vg10 does 25 or 30. He likely is only recording 24 frames butq it's not 24 per second because the timebase remains 1/30th second.

Yeah, that's what I am thinking too.

I'd like to hear his opinion on its look.

I find this very sketchy. The fact is that a still life with a very slow focal change is not going to tell us enough about how the frame rate is being recorded. If he was on camera talking, it would be better so at least we could see if the frames were being dropped or held over. Or a simple medium speed pan.

Dear William,

This may not be what you actually need, but there is some motion in this shot.

It will appear to be static at first.

Thanks for the link. It looks a little choppy but it's hard to tell with the way the shot is set up. I can't go frame by frame to check to see what is happening. Perhaps there's a way with Vimeo that I am overlooking.
