Mark McCarthy rigs up a top-end second-hand Sony camera and is delighted with the results
It’s been a little while since I last wrote an article for RedSharkNews, but I’m back! Business is going great guns for us at Sparky Media Productions with lots of interesting projects going on, a new Assistant Producer, Dan Keeble coming on board and I simply haven’t had much time to sit down and write – but I thought I’d take the time to share something we are working on, that I hope you might find of interest.
With all the current conversation and buzz based around 4k and the need for it (it’s not something immediately on our radar at the moment), we have taken a sideways but certainly upwards step in terms of picture quality with the investment of a Sony F35 camera to go with our Sony PDW-700 and Sony F3. I started to follow the story of a couple of guys who had purchased the camera and had modified it to work for them with amazing results. I decided to take the plunge and within two weeks I purchased a used one from the States and had it sitting on my desk!
