Hosted by pro storm chaser Alister Chapman, our FS5 Fiesta brought some of the hottest Sony camcorder kit to Soho. Guests got the lowdown on the cameras and learnt some handy techniques and tips to boot, all while enjoying tapas and a few beers.
First off, we’d like to thank everyone who made it there on the day! Alister kicked off the event by imparting his filmic wisdom, dropping his knowledge on lens options, variable ND, clear image zoom, super slow mo, picture profile settings, gamma curves, Cinegammas, S-log and S-log2 and much more. As a storm chaser and someone who’s been apart of the Sony ecosystem for years, Alister knows all about Sony camcorders and the intricacies of using them and we’re confident our guests will be making use of the cool tips he was dishing out.
Alister wasted no time showing the audience how to get the very best out of the Sony PXW-FS5, and demonstrated some impressive footage of the Geysir in Iceland where he’d made use of the super slow mo and end trigger settings. The Sony PXW-FS7 also made an appearance, as guests had the chance to get their hands on both of Sony’s video cameras and put their questions to the expert. Atomos brought along their Shogun 4K recorder and monitor, while Rotolight brought their NEO lights kit along to the event. In addition, we had some top of the range lenses from Zeiss on display, which work perfectly with Sony camcorders – remember, every top quality camera is only as good as the lens attached to it!
As I’m sure you’d imagine, the tapas went down a treat and our guests walked (or stumbled) away with some extra camcorder knowhow they can put to the test themselves.
Here’s what some of you had to say about our FS5 Fiesta:
