"V1 Action Movies"


Monterey Bay, US
          

Will the V1 keep up with an Action sequence?

My main purpose for getting this camera is to use it where the D5100/D7000 fails.
If it cannot do this, I should spend the money on groceries or rent instead of wasting it on a Toy.

I suspect we will have to wait for some independent tests before we know the answer to that.

With the V1 delivery dates ranging from Oct 18th to sometime in December,
there has been a real shortage of "Hands On" tests.

Perhaps someone can link us to something relevant?

Hi Roger!

I wrote Thom Hogan about the video capabilities and he seemed to think the focus speed on the video was really fast on his sample.

I saw these test videos and found the focus fast without a lot of hunting.

If it is speed for focus and frame rate, it seems like this little dog can get out and fetch 'em.

I liked how you said it, so

I checked the Video (?)
Looked more like a slide show, but
the focusing was pretty fast.

Thanks, I am sure more and better demos will be coming.

I noticed that the expected first shipments have been moved from October to Nov 15th.
But, I just heard that some are expected for tomorrow.

It would be real nice to be able to get "Hands On" locally.

I got my V1 and it works fine for Action Movies.
The FullTime AutoFocus is very fast and accurate even in the dark.

Problem is that anything needing more than 1600 ISO (not always) is often subject to moire and orange cast.

It really depends on the lighting.
This was taken at AutoISO 3200

Not bad at all Roger and you are getting super sound with your unit! Thanks for sharing.

And thanks Rick for those other samples, the high speed video was especially informative.

Best regards, SteveK
