Using P+S Mini35 as a total "filmlook newbie"


Im planning to shoot a music video for band. It is all pretty well planned and we are shooing on a field, in an empty shop floor and in front of "running" helicopter(s) for a stormy effect.

So first I wanted to shoot with a FX1 but then we got those great locations and I decided to rent more equipment (HVX200 + p+s mini35 adater and lenses, Camera JIB, professional dolly, lightening, steadicam, and much more)

So the problem is just that Im actually not used to use the HVX200 with a P+S mini adapter. Is it really something different to use a HVX200 than a XL2 or FX1? Do you think we can use the mini35 adapter as newbies? We dont want to make runs or special stunts with mini35 adapter but just get this great dof shoots and film effect. Shure the adapter is not all - I can also use the Magic Bullet S. with AE CS3 on a friends computer but I think that the adapter plays a great role in it.

Is it hard to get good freehand footage with a 35mini adapter?

Do you have some tips using 35mm adapter? I heard that hight contrast footage is great - like shooting against the sun.

Thanks a lot for your help ! Appreciate it much !
