Tom Guilmette shoots a documentary with ENG lenses and has this to say about the Sony F55:
I wanted to shoot this mini-doc “ENG News Style” using a 2/3 inch Fujinon broadcast high definition television lens. I shot the project as a test to see what this cinema/broadcast combo could do before using the system on paid gigs with my television clients.
My sports clients are use to the ability to pick off lots of shots in short amounts of time using shoulder mounted television cameras with ENG zoom lenses. I need to be able to move quick, either solo or with a very small team. But these clients want a “Cinematic Look” including shallow depth of field and slow motion. The idea of carrying and changing prime lenses is not always an option in the fast paced unscripted sports world. The F55 is my dream camera, it can do it all. Digital cinema and television.
