My first outing with the HMC-150

Here's a quicky test I did tonight at a music festival in downtown Fort Pierce. There were three clips in the piece where I had to adjust the exposure a little in PPCS5. But for the most part, this camera is GREAT right out of the box. I haven't started playing with the scene files yet.


And Chris, you were right about the viewfinder. After a while, I got used to it.

Hi Sherri

Neat footage and you do a great handheld job too!!! Yeah, I really didn't know what you were talking about with the EVF but once the action starts you are too busy filming.

I guess you like the 150 a lot better than the 40???? The images were really great and I absolutely love a camera that you can just pick up and shoot with !! I use my cams on auto most of the time as if I start fiddling with settings the event is over... !!

They are still awesome cams!!! I am very reluctant to move to the new HMC 80 as it basically is a shoulder mount with the 40 electronics!! I think an HMC150 with a shoulder mount rig is a better mix!!

Looking forward to more clips soon!!

Chris

Hi Sherri,

I am surprised you are not waiting for the AF100 and instead you got the HMC-150.

Of course, the HMC-150 will make a good b-camera for the af100.

I love my HMC-150 but can not wait for the af100.

Good luck!

Simon

Hey Simon,

The AF100 would be overkill for me. I don't need that level of sophistication when I mostly do run-and-gun videography. I have a Canon 5DMKII that I break out if I need to get creative....:)

Hello,

That makes sense if you have the Canon camera for the DOF shots.

Is there such a thing as overkill in video? ;) You can never have too many features!

Good luck with the HMC-150. Great camera!

Best regards,

Simon

Hmc150

Hi Sherri,
Video looks very good. Thinking about HMC150 myself, just sent you a PM with a couple of questions if you have time to respond.
Thanks
