I am looking to purchase cameras and capture stations shortly and cut the field down to the F950 or Viper. I like the ability to get a 2.37:1 aspect without degrading or using anamorphic lenses.

The F950 has proven itself in a number of productions, and has a larger experienced cinematographer base. Robert Rodriguez up the road from us has had good results, particularly in his green screen work.

I was interested if someone has used both cameras, and could share comparative experience with cameras.

We are shooting a historical, drama, action, feature production in Baton Rogue and San Antonio with little green screen, but mostly ext practical and sets, and another feature production almost back to back.

Thanks

Well, that just leaves the Viper then -- only it has that unique CCD design of pixel sub-groups that can be arranged to allow a 2.35 image to fill the 16x9 HD recording.
