Re: Panasonic AG-UX180 & AG-UX90

Nate, thank you for posting the original clips. They are very helpful. How does the low light on the UX180 hold up to your C100?

I'm not really sure I guess. I haven't had a chance to see them side by side just yet. The UX180 is sharper of course, but the C100 has always had that 'mojo." Perhaps I can do a test of some sort this week. I don't think it's going to be close when it comes to low-light, but we'll see. C100 base ISO is supposed to be 850 and I believe Barry said the UX was supposed to be somewhere around 450? A good question for sure and one that I need to answer for myself when deciding if it's worth it for me to switch over from C100s to the UX cams for events.

Re: Panasonic AG-UX180 & AG-UX90

Just placed my order for a HC-X1 instead of the UX180...I don't need the sdi outs

The manual for HC-X1 says it does 120fps in 1080p mode without audio....does this mean that it automatically records in slow motion on the SD card or do I have to do the slow motion in post (meaning it records at regular speed like the sony z150)?

Thanks

Late afternoon scenes that I took at the beach when I still had the camera.

Looks like nothing that couldn't easily have been done with an iPhone.

Re: Panasonic AG-UX180 & AG-UX90

Now that was a great comment, can't imagine how silly all those ux180 owners must feel for wasting their money on a camera that cannot even be used to make a phonecall.

Re: Panasonic AG-UX180 & AG-UX90

I guess the professional look of the AG-UX180's camera body and lens would be more impressive to a client than bringing an iPhone to a shoot, but you have to admit that that video shows nothing that couldn't be done on an iPhone. Unless you need to impress a client by the physical characterisics of your camera, why spend the money? I know I won't. Provideo camera manufacturers really need to step up their game. I want to see something absolutely stunning in the $4,000 price point, not this mediocre stuff.

Re: Panasonic AG-UX180 & AG-UX90

Before I"m off to buy the Iphone, does it have a optical 20x motorized zoom, build in ND filters, dual slot recording, SDI out and XLR in out of the box just to name a few?
Maybe you could share something that you shot for a client on a mobile phone that doesn't look mediocre?

I know the 180 can't even make a call. Lol Panasonic step up your game or I'm replacing you with the iPhone [/coo-coo]

Re: Panasonic AG-UX180 & AG-UX90

OK. I was trying to be nice about it, and not say it directly. No one seems to get that what I'm saying is that the results from that Panasonic camera look dismal and boring. I'm not talking about the 20x zoom, the XLR audio, etc. I'm talking about the resultant end product of those videos that were posted, shot by that camera. They aren't good. If you think they are, you're kidding yourself. Geez, it's like the Emperor's New Clothes and I'm the one pointing out that the Emperor is naked.

You want a Nobel prize for pointing out the obvious that consumer devices with small sensors perform well in bright situations such as outdoors?
