Hi
I have a shooting for a feature film in six days and iam going to use sony's f 23 for first time in my life.
The suport from the sony is very good but i am shooting outside of my country and i am having a small
problem with the language.BTW Ican't fint the markers 1:165 or 1:185 or even 1:239 for the vf. Does any one knows where are they and if the camera is able to do that. The is no Vista1 or Vista2 like cinealta or
i mist it.
Thanks.

Per the manual I have (which is only a couple of weeks old) and from my playing with the camera recently, I don't believe that Vista 1 & 2 are available. So, I would suggest that you - as you'd likely do for every project anyways - shoot a framing chart and set the variable markers to that. The VARIABLE setting is under the ASPECT setting in the U04 menu.

I would recommend that you do actually shoot the chart and hand that footage over to post so that they know what you were framing for in camera. Hope this helps.

I will do it as you say with the framing chart.
Thanks alot for the advice.
