Loving the K-01 For Video

I've been using my K-01 for B-roll, My main camera is a $5500 Sony FS-100. But usually I really love what comes out of the K-01. I think I am going to buy another one. This video was shot with the K-01 with 50mm Pentax 1.4 full frame prime lens that I have had for about 30 years. The K-01 is winner in my opinon.

Very nice - I am sure someone in the know could tell this wasn't from the $5k camera, but it looks excellent to my eyes.

None of the people I shoot for have yet fiqured it out. The shot does have a few advantages - I color match with the output of the FS-100 which is almost always perfect, and the primary sound channels are off the Fs-100 which has a stereo XLR direct off the the Mixer (it helps to control the enviroment when you are also the sound engineer). I use the FS-100 for a wide shot, and the K-01 for closeups but often I love the richeness of the closeup to much to bother with the wide shot.

Here's another a sample I rather like:

I did find one thing that seemed a little odd with the K-01. When using it at a rather loud concert once I noticed some vibration in the picture. I disabled all the antishake stuff and I haven't seen again. Perhaps it was responding to all the bass vibration. Don't need antishake anyways.

It actually reminds me of the output of my little Q but with quite a boost in the darks. I think the Q is wonderful for its size and price and that says something about the K-01 for video!

Looks good. Do you mix footage from both camera's into one clip?

This clip is the K-01 only. I also had the FS-100 running on wide shot. What I generally do is switch back and forth as appropriate when the act requires a large field of view as in a band (as opposed to a soloist). I mix footage for up to 4 different cameras into some videos, using a Pentax K-01, a Pentax K-X, the Sony FS-100 and Sony HC-3.

I record the main mix off the sound production mixer board direct into the Sony FS-100 via dual XLR Cables. I also have an external 5 mic Zoom H-2N recorder an on arm off the Sony FS-100 main tripod to record the sound live in the air and to pickup audience reaction. The sound on the K-01 I use only for syncronization purposes. I could feed the sound in from the mixer to it, but is much easier to feed it to the FS-100 with it's XLR inputs and onboard mixer control.

In post production I mix the FS-100 sound from the main mixer such that it contributes about 80% of the final mix and the forward and back stereo channels in from the Zoom H-2n at 20% of the final mix. This adds some room atmosphere and natural reverb into the sound while maintaing the integrity of the higher quality mixer board sourced sound.

I will take a picture of my setup at the next show in couple weeks so you can see what it all looks like together.

In comparison the clip below was shot under similar lighting and post production conditions with a Pentax K-x. It may be limited to 720P but upresed to 1080p under the right conditions I got some results I really liked but not as clean as the K-01. The sample below was made on the standard 18-55mm kit lens (while cheap still not a bad lenses although not particularly fast).

Nice work allknowingeye I'm shooting a concert photo/video(fairly small venue) with 2 K-01s, with a friend on a Sony Vixia hf s100. We'll be using a Zoom H4N and a couple mics for sound(one shotgun mic and an instrument mic). Still not sure if there will be a mixer to plug into for the main sound or not, or if we will have access to said mixer if it is there. I've never shot video before only photography so this is all new to me with about two weeks to learn and prepare. Do you have any tips for mixing the two different kinds of cameras or setting you like on the K-01 in low light video situations? I know to double check and make sure they are shooting at the same fps, and video format/quality, but is there anything else I should be wary of? Thanks for any help you can provide.
