Interesting! Are you getting something else? Or going camera-less?

Re: For sale F55 AXS-R5 complete package kit

yes Nez I might go camera-less, or wait for PMW-F9 as suggested by Paul. Smiley Tongue

 

The C700 looks quite interesting as well.  Smiley Surprised

 

But jokes aside, I might also keep the F55 depending if I get any offers and where things land. I'm good either way, F55 is great camera and it was definitely ahead of its' time when released over 3 years ago!!!

Re: For sale F55 AXS-R5 complete package kit

Indeed. What, if any, benefits do you see in the C700 over your F55?

PMW-F9... hmm. All it would really need imo would be better in camera LUT support, S&Q to use the full sensor at all frame rates (no need for 2K Full Scan), better S/N ratio (cleaner higher ISOs), Cache during S&Q, maybe XOCN in camera (?), faster boot time, better in-camera debayer, maybe another 2 stops of DR, and heck, why not a higher pixel density sensor for better 4K or non-bayer full RGB sampling Smiley Very Happy

Sorry, got a bit carried away! Didn't mean to hijack your sale post!

Re: For sale F55 AXS-R5 complete package kit

As for the C700, this is purely speculative since I haven't tested the C700 yet, but on paper it has a 0.5K extra resolution sensor going for it, one extra stop of dynamic range, and surely perfect support for EOS lenses.

 

Form factor is a big one for some people as they move towards drone and gimbal use. Also the C700 comes with ProRes 4K recording built-in. I don't know if the C700 has 3D LUT support, but I reckon it will. If not, then it will at least have some default "preview" mode look option when recording in log.

 

As for a "PMW-F9" it's true there is not alot to improve upon the FS7/F5/F55.. especially now with the AXS-R7. Sony really killed it with this model, moreso than any other model I can think of, and it was first announced in October 2012 remember! Kudos to Sony!

 

I'm moving into more specialized and commercial work where the camera is provided, and even chosen for me. These days I'm paid more as DP for my lighting, not the camera, and shooting with a variety of camera's.
