New Toys! We Upgrade to Sony FS700 and Odyssey 7Q – 4k Slow Motion Anyone?
- Date 2 June 2014
The saying goes ‘all good things must come to an end’ and that is certainly apt here at VI HQ, with the upgrade in camera gear.
Like many young, start up production companies over the last few years, we have relied heavily on the humble DSLR for a majority of our work. The occasional RED Epic hire aside, almost everything we’ve shot has been on the Canon 7D, itself a very nice camera – portability and a very nice image is all we cared about – and most importantly, clients were happy with the quality of image we put out…
But, the times they are a’ changin’ and we felt we needed to offer more to clients, like high frame rates, an even better image and possibly even 4k… so, we opted for the Sony FS700 and Odyssey 7Q! We won’t bore you with specific details, but trust us, 4k slow motion is amazing!
The only thing we need now is some form of stabilising solution…
