Thanks to everyone who made it out to our Sony User Group Event on August 28th.  Here's an overview of what was covered, and some photos from the evening.  Hope to see you at the next one!

Band Pro gave an indepth review of the Sony FS700 and new SR-R1 Recorder.

Sony’s New FS700 Camera

What’s all the fuss about?  How about combining a super 35 4K imager, 1080p onboard recording, 4K off-board recording in the future, 1080 at up to 60p, 120fps & 240fps in burst mode.  This camera has incredible dynamic range, and addresses some issues from the FS100 (built in ND wheel, HD-SDI output). Band Pro discussed file-based transfers, transcoding, working with external recorders, etc, as well as setting up custom camea profiles to create looks.

Band Pro also debuted our FS700 demo reel, available for viewing here:

Sony's New F3 R1 Workflow Solution

Ready to streamline your F3 workflow?  Sony’s new R1 lets you record 4:4:4 on SR memory and record XD Cam in the camera; edit the XD Cam and easily conform back to the SR Memory, because all of the metadata (time code, file name, etc) are transferred between the camera and the SR memory.  Footage recorded in SR compression is nearly indistinguishable from uncompressed at a fraction of the storage space, and allows for full implementation of the S-Log capability of the F3.  Band Pro gave a complete overview of the functionality and workflow improvements.
