Re: NEX-VG20 in November

The manual specifically states peaking is NOT sent out the HDMI. The VG10 was clean.

Re: NEX-VG20 in November

I wonder if the 60i / 50i is now "real" as the VG10 produces 50i / 60i which has identical fields, so its still really 25p, 30p - this impacts some of my slo mo work - and the aliasing on the VG10 is awful - I'd love to see if it has improved on the VG20 body

Re: NEX-VG20 in November

I have been using the 5N (only in 25p so far) which IMO is much improved on the Video side compared to the VG10/original NEX5

Aliasing on the VG10 drove me crazy, the 5N, is not perfect but VERY much improved and does not crop the picture anymore!, in-fact the picture is so much better, I have started to get very excited about the VG20, with the same chip and quality of the 5N plus the cine gamma and zero gain control it should blow the VG10 away!

You can see some footage shot in the KineRAW-S8p (tm) camera, 2592x1104x12bit@24.000fps full 100% True RAW uncompressed at about 103MB/s data rate, that gives about 9 minutes of non-stop recording on a 60GB SSD, you can dump to a HDD in the other slot, I was using a 500GB 2.5" notebook drive to dump to.

The camera shoots many resolutions and frame rates from 1fps to 220fps. It shoots 2.35:1, 2:1 (2400x1200), 16:9 (23.976, 24, 25, 29.97, 59.94).

In 2.35:1 there are 48fps and 72fps to reduce rolling shutter by skip printing.

It also shoots standard 2K anamorphic 'Panavision (tm)' Cineon (tm) and Celco (tm) 1828x1556 resolution for transfer to 35mm printing negatives, I'm working on a video to demo that now.

If you would like to see some of the uncompressed BMP frames used to make the videos, you can follow the instructions on my Vimeo page for the videos.
