Just a look at one of the ways we are using the HPX300 on "Good Eats".

Are you using a wideangle adaptor or is that one of the new "wider" zoom lens from Fujinon for the HPX300?

cheers,

Hi Greg,
This is the Fugi 3.5 w/a and not the stock lens.

As you can see we remove the ENG zoom control and add 3 motors controlled by a wireless Preston FL+Z3. To minimize lens torque we add some Zacuto lens support to the front of the lens. Without it these motors (designed to work with heavier torqued film lens will noticibly move the lens during a shot.

So far, happy with this lens. I ususally use Canon but they did not have one ready to test for our W/A close focus requirments.

This looks great, We are currently the only camera rental company in British Columbia that rents this camera. Its amazing what Panasonic has done with this system.

We have done a few workshops with this camera along side the 3700 and the 500. When I tell them the cost of the 300 they are very suprised. Its a hidden gem that people have realy not looked at too much. We hear about other cameras coming, but for the price and for whats out their this camera came do many things, We are working on a underwater housing for this camera at the moment.

Yes, for what is on the market it is a nice surprise. We are getting some great atmospheric shots and great composites in Intra mode.

Looking forward to a 1/3" lens conversion to cine/Nikon/Canon.

Thanks for the menu tip.
