My detailed report, which is based on almost two months with the camera, is finally here! This is, of course, a check of the video functions, not the still image functions.
I wanted to have this review live the day the camera was announced, but the two videos I had to make for Sony and Atomos at the same time just wasn't enough time. Cutting my videos in long form usually takes between 3 and 5 weeks. There was a HUGE amount of work to be done over many weeks, far more than the Sony FX9 test. Somehow I worked it out in 10 days … 10 very long days with ridiculously long hours and little sleep. Hopefully it's worth the effort! It's informative, fun, silly, educational, has lots of cameos, and contains BTS from both films of the opening day.
A rating can only be a real rating if you are unbiased and not paid for by the manufacturer. While I was paid by Sony to make these films, that was all, not my opinion about the camera. This is a review. My ethics are clearly stated at the beginning of the video.
There are chapters for review on the YouTube page, but I highly recommend watching them from start to finish as many of the features are discussed throughout. You will also miss the joy and the process as a whole. 🙂
If you liked the review and would like to thank you by buying me a drink, that would be very nice! You can do this at gopb.co/buymeadrink
