Matching the FX1000 with Panasonic HMC 150

I'm looking at a used HMC 150. It's being sold cheaply and I just hate to pass it up.

Anyway, if you've used this camera alongside the FX1000/Z5 I'm interested to know how footage from the two work together. My primary application for the cam will be weddings.

You might try posting that same question in the panny forum Jeff.

Thanks Tim, you're suggestion is spot on, of course. I was trying to avoid double posting....but if I don't hear something soon I might have to reach out in the Panny forum.

Hi Jeff,

I made a post on the Panny board about matching an HMC150 to a Z5. Here is the link.
http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/panasonic...c150-sony.html

While I have not shot a wedding with the FX1000 and an HMC150 I have shot a wedding with a Z1, FX1 and HMC150. The HMC150 was going to be a a fourth unmanned camera, but my second Z1 went down,

So here is the run down.

HMC150 became my primary camera (front cam for ceremony and primary cam for reception). I used the FX1 for prep and fisheye shots at reception. Z1 for girls prep, back camera and secondary at reception.

At that time I did not have the info on matching a Panny to a Sony. I don't think they mismatched too badly and then if you used the suggestions at the link, they would probably look even better.

Here is the highlight from that wedding. Allow a few seconds to load.
