Sony a9 4K Video – Las Vegas at Night



I’ve been using the Sony a9 since its release and I love it.

It’s an incredible camera.It’s converted me to mirrorless for stills.

But I also shoot a heap of video with it.

While not its primary function, when you nail it, the vision is pretty damn good.

When I was in Las Vegas last week I took it for a lap on a Crane 2 gimbal near midnight.

The low noise levels are impressive but the highlights and lows can get lost, especially with the challenging range of Vegas lights.

The basic settings are 4K, 25p, ISO 100 to 1000.

Recorded internally with no external monitor.

There has been no correction applied in the edit.

Essentially if you don’t get it right on the night you won’t have much leeway when it comes to corrections.

Not a bad thing when it comes to shooting video.

Now this was a rough and ready shoot but interested what you guys think.

Samsung’s second generation QD OLED TV is brilliant. It improves on the impressive S95B with increased brightness and more realistic colours.

In this review I show how it performs when displaying challenging films and TV programs.
Sport and Gaming are two huge reasons why the S95C should be at the top of your list when shopping for your next TV.

In the video you’ll see the 77 inch model with Q-Series Soundbar.


At the time of publication the S95C was reduced massively in price. This must be taken into account as the competition is extremely fierce between the TV makers.

Let me know what you think of the S95C 77 in the comments below.

Sony a7S III: Making Steel 4K Slow Mo



If you love slow motion and the glow of making steel – this clip is for you. Sound up! To see the sparks fly head to 5:00.

At Sydney Steel Mill they recycle scrap metal into new steel products.

This video was shot with the Sony a7s III and Sony FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS full-frame power zoom lens – autofocus was used.

The camera was briefly supplied by Sony Australia for review.

The aim was to record 4K 100p with audio to capture the atmosphere of the ‘melt shop’ in all its glory.

It was edited in Premiere Pro and slowed to 25%. There was no grading.

Audio was recorded with Sony shotgun mic supplied with XLRK3M hot shoe adapter.

I’ve been using Picture Profile 1 with some minor adjustments. I generally shoot ‘as is’ for fast turnaround. It also give some flexibility when saving blown highlights.

When used with the FE PZ 28-135mm power zoom lens – this is a beast. I’ll be buying one for sure.

More videos soon.
