Having trouble Smart Rendering

A little tip if the smart render does not appear to work, e.g. you do not get the “No recompression Required”

1 , Make sure you are using the right file type that allows “Smart Render”

2, Make sure you use the same render template as per original render

3, Make sure the “Stretch video to fill output frame size 9do not letterbox)” is unchecked for the smart render

Sony Z100 4K Camera Edit

HXR NX3 Review

I was given the privilege of review a yet to be released camera for Videographers and a chance to see if any of those previews reviews and suggestions had worked there way back into Sony.

Well I can tell some of those suggestions have made it and it is


On opening the box of the pre production model, it comes with an AC adapter, power lead, Remote control, lens hood, eye piece, additional cold shoe and the European model comes with an ECM-VG1 microphone.  It does not come with any battery , so you will need one of them if you want to take it out to film or perhaps you have a F950, F970 in your kit box already.  Personally I would have preferred the battery then the microphone, but not worth losing sleep over.a pleasure to see that.
