Re: Sony VG900 - first image

I have seen raw files from the A99 shooting video and I have seen "produced" video from that VG900. Heavy amounts of moire and interpolation exist in both.

I guess we will need to see this thing on some resolution charts to measure how bad it really is. I certainly already have a bad feeling about it. (I hope I'm wrong)

I mean, think about it, the thing takes a video image made of 24 million pixels and then throws away 22 million? That's ALLOT of image "gaps" to fill in somehow. Not counting de-Bayer, the thing only keeps 1 out of every 12 pixels? On detailed patterns, you will have pixels hitting and missing everywhere. lol,...allot more "missing" than "hitting" according to the math.

I dunno :-(

Yes steadyshot. I'd like to rent a VG900 too since it seem like its going to be available much sooner than the A99 - which I have pre-ordered ... for now.

Adorama and B&H say that on their websites but I just think that is when you could pre-order it and on Amazon it says "Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available". BTW I pre-ordered the VG900 from Samy's Camera in LA on Sep 18.

Re: Sony VG900 - first image

Has anyone had chance at a demo or show to go through the menu on the VG900?
I would really like to know if it enables all or any of the on lens Steady Shot settings on the NEX lenses in APS-C crop mode, of course there is not any IS for Full frame alpha lenses on the chip and all the publicity is geared towards full frame, infact I have not even seen a pic with a NEX lens attached to the VX900 yet.

Just noticed that you cant enable the active mode on the 18-200mm VG20 kit lens on the NEX7, only standard or off.

Thanks

Re: Sony VG900 - first image

Had an extended hands on with the camera and some nice Alpha optics including some Zeiss models. My observations i random order:

The sensor is not the same as the A99 sensor, as the autofocus sensor elements are different.
The AE3-adaptor for Alpha mount does not use a semireflective mirror, and is basically an upgraded AE1
E-mount lenses will work - but not with out some vignetting - Beta firmware though, so this may change on the final camera.
E-mount lenses with power zoom will have active zoom and stepless aperture
Alpha mount lenses will only change aperture in full F-stops on the camera.
If APS-C lenses are used the camera will do an autocrop. APS-C crop can also be done manually, for lenses that the camera can not auto detect. Then you will get the 1,6 x cropfactor,
The XLR-adaptor can not be mounted on the camera, as there is not enough space between the two flash-shoes on the camera to mount the adaptor. You have to use a bracket of some kind.
The camera is very light. Meaning that larger optics will make the camera very front heavy.
The HDMI is *not* supposed to be clean. The A99 HDMI is clean intentionally
The sound meters does not change format to a more traditional format, when the XLR-adaptor is connected on the camera, meaning that correct sound level is hard to judge.
Excellent picture quality - and possibility for extreme shallow DOF

Do you know what the differences are in the sensor?

Re: Sony VG900 - first image

No only that the embedded auto focus sensors are either missing or not active on the vg900. I believe that the cam has only one type of auto focus not a hybrid like the A99.

Re: Sony VG900 - first image

The VG900 does not have 1/3 stop light loss like the A99 with SLT mirror in the light path.
