Fx7

Shot my first job on the fx7........not to good under low light conditions in a wide angle shots especialy , but great if you are close to subject amazing details (looked to me like the old IKAGAMI colours)
in general i had a hard time the all night with setting in low light and i mean the room was dark , the camera feels really good the 20x zoom is great , but at this time i will go back to my pd-170 until the low light issue get's better,
i'ts a shame.....

Hi Ruben,
How bad is it compared to FX1?
When you mention "not too good" does that mean even you have increased to 18db its still not bright enough or its very noisy?

Thanks!

Hi, I'd like to purchase the Sony FX7 but I have just known this report about FX7:

We have had to have several of the lenses replaced due to ingress of
dust (it is not practical to strip and clean them). Now admittedly several
of our clients have been using them in very dusty environments (typically on shooting house rebuilding projects for life-style type broadcast shows) but we never had any similar problems with the PD-150/170. Sony initially
claimed the lens seal(s) had been damaged due to mishandling (i.e. dropping the camera) but they are now admitting that the lenses are not sealed against dust entry anyways.

Does anybody have similar problems with Sony FX7?
thanks

Adriano,
This simply is not true. The lenses are sealed against dust. What you have read is a rumor or statement by someone, but it's not from Sony. All cameras can be gotten into by dust or water if the exposure is heavy enough. This is why there are dust jackets and raincoats for cameras.
