Inside shots - 50mm, F6.3, iso 640

Outside shots - 24mm a99, 14mm EM5 FOV=28mm, F16, ISO 100 a99, 200 EM5

As I said before, I used focus magnify and MF to get a sharp image before hitting record, they were razor sharp before I started recording.

I'll post more later today when I get the time. Its no better with the HDMI out into my TV @1080p.

I've shot thousands of hours of video over the years, plenty for broadcast, I never had issues with my former FS100 like I do with the A99, plain and simple something is off and it isn't me.

Ignoring the still life, it still doesn't account for the ridiculously soft outside shot.

And other testers that aren't on this forum are reporting the same results with the A99 and VG900.

I still haven't seen a wide shot that wasn't soft, despite what others are claiming to produce.

Good morning Chris.  I remember you saying something about doing some more tests after last week's shoot; did you do any more that you were going to post on here?
