Okay, Here is my delema.
I have a shoot coming up for a short film. We have access to an HVX and SDX900 for free. If we could out fit both with P+S technic 35mm adapter, matte box, rods, follow focus, etc....(same exact rental package) which one would you choose and why.
I would be shooting the HVX in 720pn mode
This Question is in regards to the cameras, not what adapter, primes, mattebox, followfocus, monitors, etc. Just the Cameras Mano e Mano with P+S technic.
If you have worked with these cameras Please give me advantages and disadvantages of each.
My feelings are:
2/3 inch chip.
10bit sample rate
straight to chip through adapter, not through lens then adapter, then to chip
No tape stock
Immediate viewing on laptop
Our post workflow would be the same for both.
Master to HDcam and then color correct.
Please give me your insight, into which you would shoot with a 35mm adapter and why.
Also please enlighten me into any thing I am missing in the advantages of each.
I'm not the one making the decision. I need to convince the producers which is the better choice. I own a HVX200 and want to shoot the best thing possible. I have shot on the SDX900 many times, but never shot on either one with the adapter.
My goal is to make the best with what I have available.
Please answer ASAP, they will be making their decision within a few days.
HVX200 Vs SDX900 with P+S
