A short post of some of the footage straight out of my new Sony FS100 on which I will be shooting an Antarctic Expedition in March.
This video is the camera straight out of the box with everything set to auto.
The FS100 is supposed to be an answer to all the frustrations of shooting video on DSLRs like the Canon 5D etc. It has professional audio and focus assist etc etc. There are many better reviews on the camera out there than I can do.
Its always a love hate relationship with a new camera. I initially told my girl friend Marthe that we would have to add an extra pillow to the bed so the camera could sleep with us. After an first frustrating shoot I have decided it will stay in my office where it belongs and will have to earn its place in a cozy bed.
Stay tuned for a more rigorous test in the mountains with cross country skis. I am hoping Norway will be a good place to put gear through its paces before the Antarctic to iron out any bugs or problems with cold weather performance.
