Hi All

I'm looking at picking up a Scwem Gyrozoom FP-1 60-300mm which I've used for 4:3 before many years ago but I can't find any info regarding 16:9 shooting without vignetting, etc.

Has anyone had recent experience with this unit?

Cheers
Norbert

Hi Norbert,
are you still looking for a Schwem FP-1? I have many experience in shooting with a Schwem but also just in 4:3, i remeber that i did some test shootings in 16:9 with my Schwem and a DVW-700. DidnĀ“t remeber that i had problems with vignetting. Generally the Schwem have some shading problems, but you can adjust this in the shading settings of the camera. No big deal for a technician. Compilled lens specific setups for all of my lenses, according to lens file settings of up-to-date hd camcorder.

Cheers
Ole
