Papi61: Not going to dump my Nikon gear any soon, but I see the NX1 as a truly great offering for indie filmmakers who want to jump on the 4k bandwagon. I'm lucky I'm going to test one soon. I know some people in the indie film industry who already got the NX1 and are raving about it. If I'm satisfied with my tests and if I don't see a worthy competitor appearing soon, I will likely buy one.
I currently shoot Nikon but have no bias either way.
I'm curious about your statement: "I am now capturing images not possible before."
Can you give examples of what type of images that are now possible that weren't possible on your old system?
Laurence Dutton: I've been using this camera for commercial videos & stills since the first week it was announced, without going into detail I'll summarise:The S series lenses are unbelievably sharp; the hardware is SO much better than the firmware; 4k video is as good as the HD is bad; HDMI monitoring greys out many useful functions..eg focus assist, high frame rates; this doesn't matter as focus assist & HD are awful anyway....But with a perfect lens line up (f2,8 zooms of useful length. sony only has f4); rapidly improving firmware & astoundingly sharp 4K video I think I did the right thing in buying into the whole system.
I just wanted to compliment you on your work. I just checked out your website and you have some very impressive images. Congrats!
OBI656: Expensive, Studio need at least 3 lights means $3,600.00. For this amount of money you approach territory of ProFoto.
I use the Einstein's indoor and on location but these units will do HSS up to 1/8000 which can't be done with the Einstein's.
Shame they don't have a built in battery though so we could eliminate all leads and external batteries on location.
The Priolite is the perfect unit for me but it's just too expensive. Here in Oz they are selling for $3k each.
Haven't read this article but it prompted me to find an old Youtube clip that I loved so much. Very funny stuff!
Can someone tell me how to download the original RAW files for the various cameras?
