I have a shoot coming up that requires a specific shot on a train (the LA Metro 25 to 30 mph)(see pic attachment below). The only dilemma I face is deciding which format to go with. I can choose to use an A7S 2 w/ shogun w/ zeiss primes (8 bit prores 422) or a Sony Fs7 w/ fujinon 19-90 (10 bit 422). The issue is that the camera HAS to be handheld (no easy rig/no gimbal) and the shot has to be somewhat smooth. Clearly the fs7 is the better option (due to the compression/quality) but I'm worried about seeing the movement/swaying/micro-jitters of the train. The reason for the A7S option would be for the internal image stabilization and the small form factor, BUT i'm wondering if the rolling shutter will be an issue for the background movement. I plan on being at around a 50mm about 5 ft away from the subject. Does anyone here have experience shooting on trains and what issues entail?
