Re: Sony PMW-F3 and Panasonic AF100 dedicated boards...

There was a quite heavy technical discussion on the AF100's resolution figures then it got moved.

Re: Sony PMW-F3 and Panasonic AF100 dedicated boards...

For the F3 a dedicated board is entirely approrpriate due to the expandability and capability of the system. I think Sony hit one out of the park with that one.

Also, however implemented, there needs to be a policy that allows rational discussion of the physical limits of systems, e.g. remove contentious and argumentative posts but let the fact-based discussion lead where it may.

There were plenty of other threads about the camera including some hands-on experiences. It seems a little extreme to direct all discussion of this camera to a 'rival' forum. They have sub-forums for the Panasonic GH2 & Canon 5D over there too. Why not close these forums too? Aside from the fact that the other forum looks ugly it has a far higher noise to signal ratio than here not least because we all benefit from Chris Hurd's robust moderation of these forums in keeping out the crap.

I am a bit surprised that the AF100 forum now redirects to DVXUser.
Adam Wilt has posted a great Panasonic AF100, Sony F3 article on chart tests he ran (elsewhere), which had a good critique of the strengths and weaknesses of each which might have been a worthy addition to the AF100 forum.

And that's why I love DV Info. I want the info about the best practices to get the best results from the gear. And how to overcome the limitations (there is no perfect camera) and find the workarounds.

And trust me, Chris did the right thing. Look around at what happened at other forums (DVXUser and DV Doctor) afterwards.

I'm very interested in the AF100, F3 and (as of today's announcements) the NEX FS100.

But all I want is the info. Without the personal agendas.

I can see flushing the forum content if Chris felt it was needed but now there's no way to start fresh since there's no "postable" AF100 forum.

Re: Sony PMW-F3 and Panasonic AF100 dedicated boards...

Having run into Chris at SXSW here in Austin last week, I have a suspicion that the AF100 forum will return in the not-so-distant future.

While everyone has an agenda (I'm a reseller - but I'm also a user like everyone else), balancing the freedom of contributors with editorial responsibility is an honorable endeavor - and no small undertaking.

When that can be done at a level satisfactory to Chris, I would bet we'll see this forum return.

I intended to suggest that as a joke, but realize it isn't that funny because it's true.
It is true.
Also Sony went to a lot of trouble to ensure and prove that XDCAM source material would be accepted by broadcasters. They won't do this for NXCAM. They do see it as a "prosumer" product.
Great little pov camera all the same.
