Re: GY-HM850E as an ENG camera?

Hello,

I just bought a HM750 and I'm concerned with the vertical smear as you can see here
. Last week I tried the Sony PMW320 and it had the strobe rolling shutter issue as you can see in this video
. Can anyone tell me how the 8xx cameras perform in these two situations?

Thanks
Dean

The 850/890 use the same chips as the 600/650, which has no vertical smear. You couldn't pay me enough to use a 700 series camera......in fact at my job, I use my personal camera for all my work, leave the company 790 in the trunk. :)

Thank You Paul,

Have you used the 850/890 at night at crime scenes? Or fire scenes? How does it perform with regard to the cmos rolling shutter issue? In other words how does it handle strobes at night?

Any chance I could talk to you about the camera? I may return the 750 first thing tomorrow morning and get an 850.

Thanks
Dean

I have only used the 650 around LED's. I don't think strobes are used that much around here any more. I know my X70 handles LED's similar to strobes, you get that partial screen tear on certain pulses.

I think that a rolling shutter on a strobe would be better than huge vertical smear on everything with those tiny CCD chips on the 750! The 850 CMOS will also give you RED taillights, instead of that wonderful pink stuff you get on the 750/790's.
