Joining the Club

Just ordered my FS100 today, with kit lens. Adding lens adapter for 35mm and 50 mm Canon FD lenses. Holding off on Ninja for the moment. Waiting until I have in hand, and have time to figure out my own production ergonomic needs.

Looking forward to comparing notes --- and of course, plenty of purchase reinforcement!

Re: Joining the Club

Congrats, Bill! You'll love the camera. It takes great looking video. A 35mm and 50mm are good lenses to have. You'll find you'll use the kit zoom lens a lot. The first purchase I recommend is a good variable ND filter for the zoom. It's almost useless without one outdoors.

+1 on Glenn's variable ND filter suggestion. You'll love the camera. Low light performance is wonderful with a fast prime. You'll be seeing in the dark!

Oh yes. I also got a Genus variable ND filter, and a rig that will fit my old Chriziel Matte Box. It's fun having a lego camera.
