First short feature done for BBC news with Sony HX9V

Dear friends.

Here is an attempt to work with the little Sony camera for BBC news
Password: Johnnie

Together with my BBC correspondent Bethany Bell, we've decided to give the little Sony camera a try during a real short feature production.The aim was not to astonish anyone with "VDSLR like" film look but to see how easy (or not) it is to work with it in the field.Considering the fact that this camera is mostly automatic I am fairly happy with the end result. True, keeping the right exposure is almost impossible during "run&gun" (look at the piece to camera) but I must admit that focusing (or playing with depth of field) were easier then I've expected.

Other equipment used during this production day:
Sachtler DV8 SB tripod
Zacuto viewfinder
Tascam DR-100

Footage was converted to Cineform before editing on Adobe Premiere CS2

No CC was appliedIf you have any questions please don't hesitate.

Thanks!
Johnnie

Looks good a nice piece. Can I suggest putting 25 frame audio mixes between most of the sound edits on the fx track. A liitle trick that will smooth out the hard cuts.

I was a news editor in a past life. You have convinced me think that this Sony camera is worth looking at for some applications.
