Agreed Scott. Very clean footage Chad. Could you post some comparison shots if you can even if they're stills for the moment. Thanks

If anyone wants to host it - I've got some outdoors 24p stuff that's stunning.

Chad, could you tell us how the Z7 footage matches up with your FX1 footage? I'm hoping to use my FX1 as a second camera to the Z7, and was wondering how difficult the cameras are to match. Thanks.

Eric- could you post some stills instead of video? You can attach stills to a dvinfo post, without the need for a someone else to host video. Thanks!

Thanks! Interesting, it reminds me a bit of some of the v1 images I've seen. If you get a chance, please do post some full rez stills! Quite a few people are very keen to see what they look like, I'm sure.

The cams are close in lowlight performance with the XDCAM EX being slightly better with lower noise.

NIGHT CLIP
http://www.dvdaction.net/dvdaction_009.htm


1.The Z7 is Better Balanced than the XDCAM EX
2.Z7 The Hand grip does not rotate
3.Very close to the XDCAM in Low light
4.No built in stereo mic
5.The Z7 has more nosier than the EX
6.I have not had a chance to try the CF unit, if you use the shoe bracket from the DR60 you cam mount the CF unit to another cam.
7.I like the variable frame rates, Rotating Grip and the Over cranking on the XDCAM EX
8.Cheaper media on the Z7. I shoot training Videos some of these shoots are 3 to four days 8hrs per day.

You can not go wrong with choosing either one of theses cams. I will upload somemore clips m2t files later.

Chirs can you send me instruction on how to upload clips to the clips section on your site. BKr5000@yahoo.com

Big improvement over the V1 . I sold my Z1 and FX1, I am going to try to borrow a HDR-FX1 this week to do some test. Cant wait to try the CF unit I ordered (2) 32gb and (2) 16gb cards.

Brian,

Which 32 GB card did you order? I picked up (delivering today) the Tanscend 32GB card from Newegg. I was also surprised to see how many different cameras the CF drive works with. At some point this week, I'm going to attempt to see if I can attach it to my Canon HV20. While I'm at it, I'm going to see how obnoxious I can make the HV20 look by attaching the CF reader, wireless mic and a light. We are going to NAB and I thought I would bring it. I might end up leaving it if I pick up a Red Scarlet :)

Thanks for posting that night clip, Brian. It looks great. These sorts of low-light clips are super useful to see.
