In Topic: Sony a7 series with 28mm and clip-on fisheye

Sony 10-18mm covers the full-frame sensor from 12-17mm. Has anyone try this lens on an A7 underwater yet?

Just wait a bit for more options. Reportadly several affordable 4K cameras will be released before the CES (Jan 6-9) and CP+ (Feb 12-15) shows.

 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed on an affordable APS-C 2K 60p or better yet a 4K 60p option.

Yup, GoPro 4 is amazing for the cost - 4k 30p, 2.7k 50/48p, 1080 120p, a super wide lens and an UW housing!

 

James Cameron on why high frame rates are the future: "A 2K image at 48 frames per second looks as sharp as a 4K image at 24 frames per second ... with one fundamental difference: the 4K/24 image will judder miserably during a panning shot, and the 2K/48 won't."

 

Seeing is believing! 48p is also better for slow motion than 30/24p when capturing something unexpected!

would be nice if the new Go Pro 4 has some manual control.

 

In Protune Hero 4 offers 5 white balance settings: Auto, 3000k, 5500k, 6500k, & Native.

 

The slowest shutter speeds for video is 1/frame rate - 1/30sec for 30p, 1/60sec for 60p and so on - and this can be used to limit the amount of motion blur in video frames when one chooses to.

 

I think Hero 4's 2.7k 48p is very exciting because 1/48sec shutter is plenty good for most situations, 48p is silky smooth, and tests show it's not easy to tell 4k and 2.7k apart during playback at native speeds in theaters.

Thanks for the answers! Good to know that you shot it in 2.7k.
