Looks like my prayers have been answered

My interest is to pair up with the FS700, however Convergent Design have also said the 7Q will support the Sony A7S, and presumably therefore the GH4.

Its a monster! Crieky!

 

I appreciate that the 7Q 'will' work with other 4K/1080 cameras, which is great - but I think strapping one of these to a Nauticam housing will be a odd looking contraption!

 

Looking forward to seeing it Stuart - can't believe you won't be getting one ;)

Yep, it's big. Not sure that any offering for the Shogun would be that much smaller, they both starting with big units, and you need a bit of space to get the connectors in etc... so both are going to look a bit oversized when paired with the GH4 or A7S (but then you do get a glorious 7" monitor to look at....)

 

What we really need is for someone to come up with a 4 inch monitor 4k solution ;)

 

But in the mean time, it's taken pole position on our wish list... soon as I get my sweaty paws on one, I'll fire up a review...

 

I'll try and get some more info from Subal on specs, functionality, dimensions etc

Ninja4k - thats what we need!! Same form factor as the Ninja2 (saves buying another housing!), the same screen tech (so the rubber buttons work) but 4k, and a nicer screen.

 

I'm torn now with the GH4....! do I go 10bit 1080 422 to the Ninja2, or do I forgo the 10bit and get 4k 8bit 420 to the SD..... so yeah Atomos - get a hurry up on a 4k Ninja!!  :bye:

:) We can hope, although I'm sure the demand for a 4" EVF recorder for all of these 4k recording devices is going to go be quite encouraging to the manufacturers!!

 

As for you, I'd still say get the Ninja 2. First and foremost, the monitor is almost 50% bigger than on board. I'm not too convinced about the colour reproduction but for framing and focus it makes life a lot more comfortable. I'd also say that 10 bit HD may sometimes be a better option than 4k 8 bit... what you give away in res you gain back in scope of data.

Hello Stuart I was speaking with Joe from amphibico today and he said that you were using the FS700 with the 7Q with their Amphibico housing do you have any footage that you could share that demos this package?

 

Thank you,

 

Norman McMillan.

Hi Norman,

 

Sorry for the delay in responding, only just back in the country! I've only used the 7Q FS700 Amphibico combo in a studio based environment, I've not managed to get my hands on the 7Q as yet, so I'm having to run that top side linked with HD-SDI cable.

 

I did a review in December, details here:

There's also a link to short clip on Vimeo, showing the grading potential of the raw files. 

 

http://www.vimeo.com/82280380

 

My overall opinion, very impressed, can't wait to get a housing for the 7Q so as I can free myself from the top side tether!

Has anyone tested out the S7Q with the Subal or Amphibico housing for the FS700? Impressions? Really interested on how sony raw works for underwater footage, given the general negativity towards the fs700's internal recording when it comes to underwater.
