Sony's FS100 with the Hyperdeck Shuttle

We're often asked how to make the uniquely-shaped Sony NEX-FS100 production ready. While we've discussed several options in our FS100 Lenses and Accessories article, I thought it would be helpful to illustrate a few of the options with a short video.

In addition to some new accessories, I also discuss the recently released HypderDeck Shuttle from BlackMagic Design and how it can be used as a field recorder.

Edit: I've received several questions about some of the gear in the video, so I wanted to expand here. I mounted the HyperDeck using dual lock on the Zacuto Zwiss Plate, which is attached to the Zacuto Mini Baseplate with the Manfrotto RC4 quick release. The HyperDeck has internal batteries, but I was using the Switronix PowerBase and Switronix P-Tap cable to power the HyperDeck, TV Logic VFM-056W, and FS100. I really like the new Shape Quick Handles which are super quick to change position and lock.

In this article, we present the many different lenses and accessories that can be used with the camera.

I'm over at the Blackmagic Design booth talking with Jason Druss about their new affordable control surfaces for DaVinci Resolve: the Resolve Mini and Resolve Micro panels. Both panels feature a subset of the functionality available on the full-size Advanced panel targeted but at different user levels.
