Horrible Sony fs5 autofocus issue
by Todd VanSlyck 4 years ago
Out of the box, I've had an issue with the stock lens autofocus. I'm not sure if it's just mine or it's a common issue. It's constantly trying to catch focus, creating a flicker type effect. If you re

I found this problem to be resolved with the latest firmware update. The kit lens is not parfocal. I tested it on a Sony still camera. My suspicion is that Sony compensates for this using the autofocu

Dear Jim, you were lucky to not have the problem. What you describe is the expected upgrade procedure. When the camera is bricked nothing will bring the LCD or even power back. Between this site and t
Focus issues with FS5 and kit lens

Curious to see if anyone else is having these problems. In manual focus when zooming out using either the rocker zoom on the grip or the one on the top handle, especially in a short burst, the 18-105
Sony PMW-200 Audio Channels 3 & 4 TURN OFF!
by Scott Goddard 8 years ago
I desire to not record audio to ch3 and 4 at all. This is especially frustrating when I am sending signal out over SDI in a live setup over satellite or to a MCR studio etc. I really don't want to con

I agree completely about "design flaws." I've been a reluctant Sony user for about 30 years starting with 3 4" and the two-piece betacams. There always seems to be a poison pill either in the design o
Conversion to 25P or 50 Hz
by Alan Barker 11 years ago
Any opinions on which of the HPX170 formats will best convert to 25p or 50 Hz for broadcast in the UK We are currently shooting in 30PN. Alan Barker

by Jeremy Garchow 11 years ago
24pN is easier. With 30pN, I would recommend running it through a prefessional standards converter such as a Teranex. Also, i wouldn't change frame rates in the middle of the project, stick with 30pN

by Eric Jordan 11 years ago
Hey all, Trying to achieve some close-up macro shots for a shoot using the HPX170p. Wondering if I need to go with an expensive 72mm diopter like Century Precision's achromatic diopter ($334.95 @ B&H)

scene files and a HDX-900
by Michael Shugrue 11 years ago
Can I use a 4gig sd card for scene files - the manuel says up to 2 GB can find them anywhere to buy The camera is a HDX-900 but would use the card for HPX-500 and HPX-300
Re: scene files and a HDX-900
by Alan Barker 11 years ago
Hi Michael, No, you can't. I tried, it causes the 900 to crash, no functions will work not even the on off switch. You have to remove power to restart. Alan Barker

Operation Type

Greetings, I'm testing the HPX170 for an upcoming documentary. It's my first leap into P2, please excuse if this is a dumb question. We plan to shoot in 720P 24PN. According to the AVID P2 reference g
Re: Operation Type

I guess it was a dumb question. I see that shutter speed OFF is 1 50th, not the 1 48th I expected. Thanks, ab
