Slow Motion News Update May!

Slow Motion News Update

There has been some news on the slow motion front that we would like to share. While nothing is a new product announcement for budget conscious consumers; there is good technology being released that shoots high frame rates very often.  We are expecting some new cameras before the end of this year that should push the technology envelope further while still being widely available.

Some slow motion camera projects are maturing like the Chronos 1.4 and the fps1000HD which seem unstoppable now.  While both of these cameras are 720p resolution; sensor technology has advanced leaps ahead of what was available just 3 years ago when it comes to fairly priced CMOS Global Shutter designs. We expect the first 1080p camera that shoots very high frame rates to be announced in the next two years as technology has finally caught up with budgets.

Sony a6300 Rolling Shutter for Slow Motion?

Sonya6300rs

There has been a lot of talk lately about the Sony a6300 horrific rolling shutter performance.  Most early adopters are crying foul at the skew and jello movement artifacts when hand holding, panning or using a long telephoto lens.  There is however a big question that has been answered concerning 1080p;  that is how bad is rolling shutter in the 1080p modes including 120fps? Sort answer is about 1/10th to 1/6th that of the 4k mode.

Mark Puckett of the Photo /Video Show set out to find out about the rolling shutter in the Sony a6300 first hand using panning motion while testing the different modes in the camera including 4k 24p, 30p nad 1080p 120fps and 60fps.

Sony a6300 delivers 4k Plus 120fps FHD Slowmo!

Sonya6300

The Sony a6000 was a good middle of the line performer with pretty competitive performance. The new a6300 is a refined version with some pretty robust improvements in the video area.

For starters the 4k 30p, 24p, 25p video internal mode records in the robust XAVC-S video format at up to 100Mbps which is comparable to what the Panasonic GH4 and a7s II cameras record 4k into.  It also has S-Log3 Gamma for a flat profile for creative grading and LUT application for editors and colorists.   If you were looking for a Sony 4k alternative in an S35 crop sensor then this is the camera for you.   Furthermore the 4k mode is using the entire S35 frame and correctly down-sampling the image for extremely crisp looking 4k video from a 6k original sensor source.
