4) Movie: It can record in all the same resolutions as the MKiii, so no difference there, I've heard of reports of Moire with the video, but I haven't seen it really. The video is a big upgrade from the MKii. Also the LCD is MUCH better than the MKii, and damn near the same as the MKiii.

Weekend With The Sony FS700 | Robert Ruscher | YouTube
I had the weekend to learn the ins and outs of the FS700 before using it on a shoot the next week. Wanting to really test out the slow motion, I called my buddies and before you knew it, we were lighting things on fire and shooting Coke Cans.

Here’s a quick follow up to yesterday’s post for those who want to see the Technicolor CineStyle Color Assist workflow in action with Adobe Premiere CS6.

What would you get if you combined Kickstarter + The Elders + Hawaii + Interactive Documentary storytelling? | Nathaniel Hansen | Blog
Crowdfunding works. Kickstarter HAS changed the lives of artists and their fans the world over. If you care about storytelling, the elderly, cats, whatever, I’m asking you to help spread the word about what this project is doing and what it has the potential to contribute to humanity and our experience. Lofty? Sure – but that’s my problem and I’m alright with that.
