Line in turns off audio limiter on FX1?

I know that the audio limiters cannot be switched off but if you use a mixer and select line level in on the camera does that bypass the in camera audio limiter?

Santa just arrived!

The UPS guy just dropped off my Z1 and Varizoom Stealth. I'm so excited, but I have a meeting in an hour or so, and I'm waiting til I get home after that to really have fun. In the mean time, I'm reading the manual...I know....what a dork!

I'm sure the questions will start pouring in...so be ready guys!

Are you in LA and have a big HDTV?

I have a Z1 and if you want to check out how the various settings look (CF25, CF30, etc) then hit me up and I will bring my cam and a six pack over to your place to check it out.

I don't have a big HDTV so I would benefit just as much as you.

I am in Santa Monica and don't mind driving a ways.

Send me a mail to greggjacobson@gmail.com to set up a time.

I'm in LA working the Nissan Open for ABC. Staying at the Marina Del Rey Marriott. Would love to see the Z1. In fact, if you want, I'll trade you my FX-1 for your Z1. LOL.

Except now it's called "Event" magazine.
You coulda knocked me over with chicken breath when I read that. I was stunned. Jan usually hates anything that has the Sony name on it. The fact that he picked it in DV/SD mode over the other three cameras still is a mind boggler. That was without considering the HDV aspects at all.

Photos of MatteBox on the Sony HDV camera...

http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...tem=5751220827

I assume, because this mattebox has a spinning filter, you can simply spin it to the side to insert/remove a 4x4 filter, out of the way of the mic.

Best FX1 Settings for Chromakey?

I'm going to shoot some green screen sequences next week with a FX1 and want to know what's the best setting on the camera to get the best key. Final output will be on SD wide screen.

I read somewhere on here to set the camera at certain shutter speed but I couldn't find the post. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks

Indeed. If someone has a shutterspeed that they've tested against something, I'd surely like to see it too.

In-depth FX1E review on Hexus.Net

I don't think this has been mentioned here yet...

Check out this in-depth FX1E review on Hexus.Net by James Morris and Bob Crabtree. They even worked in a page about our own Matteo Ricchetti's extreme Nikon lens modification. Hexus is a UK Technology News site. Enjoy,
