Re: Sony NEX-FS100 Camera Test

I find the FS100 to be a very exciting camera and was looking forward to reading this post. But the more I read the more irritated I got.

Doug has used and shot beautiful images with this camera. Just look at the demo reel he has shot posted in another thread. I have only seen it online, but looks good to me. So why anyone is claiming otherwise and going at him again and again is beyond me. Seriously. Give him a break. He is interested to share his knowledge with us. And you should be grateful.

I remember when I started out. My very first camera was a VHS- C model from Orion, with a record button, an on/ off button and manual zoom. That was it. And I was happy with it. That was many years ago, however. But I worked hard, filming weddings for friends and family and made good money. Then I moved on. Today we are swamped with wonderful cameras and still complain?

Doug, thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. I am very grateful you are taking your time. I live in Norway and am not able to come to NAB.

Internet and technology however is a wonderful thing.

What an engineer calls "techno babble" is argument based on supposition rather than facts. The old instruction for professional engineers: "in argument clearly differentiate between 'I know' and 'I think'."

According to Dan Keaton at Convergent Design, no camera has a 10bit HDMI output.

Because 10bit HDMI connectors are so rare, I would need proof that the Atomos Ninja is even using true 10bit HDMI hardware before considering it. Same goes for the Aja Mini (although it has 10bit SDI).
Atomos hardware supports HDMI 1.3 and uses well-respected chipsets. HDMI 1.3 supports 10-bit and even higher bit-depths. ProRes is intrinsically 10 bit.
