25p or 30p?

Aloha,

I am a little confused. Does the FX1 or the Pro version have a 25p or 30p mode? I know there is no true progressive mode on these camera, so is it PsF or something else or do we have to wait to know?

Thanks,
Dusty

It's not progressive so it's not 25p. It's 25fps (frames per second). The difference is that there'll be a loss of vertical resolution compared to a true progressive frame rate.

PAL Pro Version of the FX1 will arrive in january 2005

Hi Guys

Today i talked with a Guy from Sony in Berlin.
He told me that the professional version will arrive in january.

The consumer version will be in shops in december 2004.

I asked him for a demo cam.
Just for a few days.
He said, I should call him again in december.

Hope i get one for a weekend and then i will shoot my
next short movie on HDV.

The demand for this cam is sooo big here, he told me.
EVERYBODY wants to test this cam.
So they donīt where were to begin at sony.
They donīt have enough cams for demo or test events.

So letīs see how the picture quality REALLY is.
Hope, i can tell you in 2 months....


Greetings from Steffen

Request to Sony HDR-FX1 Users.

Hey guys. My college is considering buying this new Sony cam. However, I do A LOT of visual effects. Since I do not have access to this camera, I was wondering if someone could do me a small favor.

When one of you guys get your hands on this camera, I was wondering if someone could shoot a blue/greescreen setup for me to test the ability to key the footage.

I am in college studying to be a visual effects compositor, so I wanted to try it out.

Thanks.

I'll have to check with our sponsors and find out who will have it and when.

As I've said before, Sony's biggest problem with this camera will be... meeting the demand for it.

Sony HVR-Z1 Persons first hand look report!

What kills me about this is, why are these demos not being held in good numbers in the States. ( In Portugal? ) , Here in LA we can't even get to touch it and it's the buzz around town. Uuuhhh!

SD out while shoot HD

Aloha,

Can the HDR-FX1 output SD while shooting HD? Can I use my SD LCD on my steady system for framing with this camera?

You have the option to view it letterboxed or squeezed on your regular SD monitor.

If you are going to use Vinten Vision 3 for HDR-FX1

Suitable spring is number "2".

I'm also testing Manfrotto head and 503 works beautifully. The new 700RC2 was going to be great since it is the lightest video head, but it won't match the weight of HDR-FX1. Too bad!

There are so many test chart clips i have not even looked at them. There are res charts, color chart etc. Shot under all conditions.

Here are the links, There are three pages of links:

http://www.sonyhdvinfo.com/showthread.php?t=384

Now when will someone start filming medium to close-ups of people. Go to a public square and film people talking to one another etc, interaction. Tripod footage preferred...

Sony to release support for HDV on Vaio

They released the news and Sony will be updating the software to support HDV in late November.

Sony HiVision de Vaio Page

They will have the update on the capturing software, DVgate and components to make the pre-installed Premiere Pro 1.5.

Just for the information. I'm not inclined with Vaio much.
