EX3 website for accesories: lenses adaptros, external hard drives, etc...

Recommended Posts

Where can I find information for getting the best results out from the EX3 to record a new TV series here in Spain?

 

* lenses, 2/3 adpators, tests

* external hard disks, wire settings...

* remote control over signal, iris, etc...

* hand held configuration...with all that stuff...

The DVInfo XDCAM EX forum would be the closest. Search there.

Unless you already have a bunch of 2/3s, I wouldn't bother. EX3 comes with a 1/2 adapter, Fujinon and Canon make ENG lenses that will bolt right on.

 

The Sony HD is worthless. Get one of the new USB SSD setups http://mxmexpress.com/?page_id=15

 

Lens control depends on the lens you end up getting. A stock EX3 lens can only have the zoom and stop/start remote. Or get the studio setup, NIPROS. http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/micro-xdcamex...prosIntro.shtml

 

For shoulder I like this one. http://shop.dm-accessories.com/products/ex3-shoulder

and I stil think that going to 2/3 lens adaptor will get us more cinema looking depth of field... at least more than a 1/2 inch one...

 

am I wrong?

Detail is really subject to personal taste. I have shot a few low budget features, and have seen some 35mm blow up tests done that looked quite good using these detail settings-

 

level -20

frequency +45

Crispening +20

White Limit +80

Black Limit +80

Knee Apt +10

 

Using CineGamma 1 mostly, and Matrix set to Cinema, Level +30. That shoots flat, great for post grading.

 

Change as required of course, depending on conditions and scene. Avoid CineGamma 2 as it limits range to 100%, the other are 109%. 1 stretches highlights, 3 is average, 4 stretches blacks.

 

A 2/3 lens does nothing for depth of field I'm afraid. The only way to change that would be to get a 35mm adapter setup like the Letus, Redrock or Brevis.
