Using GS100 for Commercial and Pro. work

Hi,

We know GS100 is one of the High(est) end of Consumer cameras. I mean near-pro type camera. I have seen commercial TV episodes taken by Sony TRV950 cameras. For example www.ladyxfilms.com,
If you watch episode 2, it is taken by TRV950.

Here in our forum itself, we saw Michael struthers, attempting to take commercials using the Great GS100k.

I thought we will share our thoughts, opinions and experiences with this camera for commercial and professional works.

There is no doubt that, GS100k is of top of the line almost equivalent to GL2, XL1s. Let us share our experiences, cheap techniques combined with GS100, to produce excellent work.

So,lets talk about the problems,experiences of commercials, documentaries, weddings, any Pro type work etc, to be taken using GS100k.

will Pana VMS2E MIC will be useful for GS100 for near pro quality. I dont think that mic is available in US.

Any professional mics you suggest, rather than going to studio and record.

I wanna take some documentary type of thing or interview type of thing with two people sitting on the chair. May be I have to get a Y connector and what mic(the mic to be sticked to the shirt) should I get for that purpose?

Thanks Raj.

I used no stabilizers or glidecams. I mounted an Azden ecz990 (about 54 bucks) on top of the cam for the only sound. I used all the sound for vo from closeup shots...no time to send anyone to a studio...from start to finish in 5 days. However a guy who knows protools helped out the sound in post immensely.

I'm not particulary recommending the Azden. It was catching some room tone, even on "focused" mode...but I'm cheap...a sennheiser 300 "d" would have been better, but it's 200 bucks.

If you want really great sound, you should get a sound guy.

Thanks Michael,

I guess the MKE 2 model can be a good tie microphone.

Yesterday I saw an episode taken using sony trv 30E and audio directly from built in mic, from ladyxfilms.com and a couple of episodes taken by sony trv 950.

Even though we can notice the resolution artifacts with the trv 30, they handled the cam very professionally. really neat.

I would encourage you to watch those episodes to get a feeling and learning, how one should handle the cams, location, lightings etc.

It gives encouragement to handle our cams better.
