200a good for documentary work?
on Jun 19, 2008 at 8:56:19 pm

I have a couple documentary style projects coming up in the next few months and getting ready to purchase a new HD camera to shoot them with. Has anyone used the 200a for documentary work? and if so how were your experiences? What accessories do you recommend to go with it? I'll probably use my laptop to dump footage on. Thanks for any input.

The 200 is solid for docs- lots and lots of them made with the 200. So as the 200A adds improved low-light capabilities it can only be better. Trick is getting a handful of 32GB cards so you don't have to bother with the quirks of the Firestore for those long takes.

Works well... BUT you need adequate storage... The ability to get it off quickly.

Be sure to calcualte how much storage you need.

Perfectly fine for Doc work. We primarily use it as a B-Camera to the varicam, but it is fine on it's own.
