"Hi, I'm Andrew Young. Before we begin, look all these really big lenses. They're really big, and there's a lot of them. I put them here so you know I'm very important and I'm really a real professional."
a grand total of $1,825 and can't afford to pay a dime more.
I work my ass off and the only thing I pay for other than camera gear is gas for my 15 minute commute to and from school every day.
Granted I'm only 18 and work for slightly more than minimum wage, it just doesn't quite make sense to me. Where are you guys getting the money to afford all this? Do you look for local freelance photo/video work? Summer jobs? Parents? Savings over years?
If you're doing client work how do you connect with new people and network (Understand that my work/knowledge isn't currently at the point where it's good enough to be worth anything. Speaking in terms of the future though...)? I've only ever done work with people I know or people that were refereed to me through people I knew.
I understand that this is probably the wrong thread for this, the thought just popped into my mind though.
I blew pretty much all the money I made last summer on camera stuff. I had some money already invested in gear so that was put towards what i had. But I worked 40hrs a week at 8,50 for almost 5 months.
Noise handling - FS100 is probably the BEST low light camera out there. The 700 is noisier at higher ISO's
Dynamic Range - seems to be slightly less, could just be some of the pre-production model tests not attempting to perfect it
Image sharpness/resolution - I have an untrained eye but watching some tests I could tell, especially at higher fps, that the image seemed soft and not as crisp as some of the fs100 footage i've seen
Compression of 120fps and above - well, looks pretty bad. Probably vimeo or my connection, but it looked blocky and very typical of AVCHD.
I guess for skiing and a 15k budget it would be alright, Resolution issues mean very little for web delivery, and the high fps/built in ND's are nice to have (but please dont overuse slowmo, for the love of god)
