Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

Thanks for the details.

There had to be some luck involved in one of my favorite cuts??? The white goose flying way beyond the tree branches. How else would you have known to focus out there unless it there was others that came by first?

Quack, Quack!

Luck? What's that? I always work according to script, the goose had a copy.

I heard the bird taking of on the left side of me but I couldn't see it in the beginning through the trees (their wings make this distinct clapping sound when they hit the water), I just had a small window in front of me between the trees where I could see the water and little time to capture it so zoomed in manually on that point, (good thing I had the powerzoom set to off) focused using the magnifier, panned quickly left and started tracking the bird as soon as I saw it to the right. It was just a matter of a few seconds and it was gone. There was some luck involved.

Hey Noa, is the offer to possibly see the higher quality version still a possibility? My Dropbox email is chrisdq82@gmail.com

I would really appreciate it!!!

That is not luck. That's smart shooting. I was a pro sports shooter for many years. Yes, "the thing that makes the great shot" has to happen, but if your not ready and capable it is missed more than it is captured. Now that I am not shooting sports I get the biggest kick out of watching photogs on the sidelines. When the action explodes at the sidelines in front of them you will see three out of four with lowered cameras and shock on their faces but their will always be that one guy that never stops shooting. Who do think gets "the shot".

hey Noa,

i love the image quality, but i do see the moire. but its weird that i never noticed it in vimeo when i played it on the same monitor. i know vimeo uses compression, but i never noticed it there.

anyways, i enjoy the image quality, but i still am not certain if i'll get this or the FS100. neither has ND filters, but the FS100 can see more in the dark... i like how the EA50 has that form factor though :-/ but i'll probably not usually use it for ENG stuff. it'll likely live on a tripod in controlled environments and then about 20-30% of the time need to go into the field for run & gun. *sigh*

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

Here the fs100 is about 2500 euro more expensive then the ea50 so then I would expect it to perform better, If I would have had the cash I probably would have gone for a Sony fs100 or Canon c100 but for what I paid for the ea50 you do get a lot for your money.

Nice video! Too bad about the EA50 shortcomings, but you obviously worked around them.

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

you can't expect a flawless camera for that price, if it was it would hurt the sales on several higher end and much more expensive camera, you often get what you pay for.
