Seems pricey (lowest price is $70 at B&H), but what do you think of this case?



Found additional images at the Japanese Ricoh site

Thanks for the suggestion, crewl1.
I'm not familiar with all of PF.
I just posted it in the price watch forum.

Did a search no twitter for the Q7 and that led me to a tweet in Japanese. The link was also in Japanese. I finally realized it was for a "premium" kit that had the 08 lens.

A Google search turned up this English version of the press release on DPreview:

Thanks for the welcome. I believe I had an image stabilization function turned on when I shot the video.

To synch up the audio and video you look for something that stands out audibly in the video and then look for the resulting high mark in the visual representation of the audio track. They use a CLAP-board when they make movies because it creates a distinguishable mark for editing purposes (the "clap").

The guy who did the editing said he uses MAGIX Movie Edit Pro to pair the sound and video together ("it was cheap at Best Buy"). Amazon reviews indicate the "Plus" version is much better.

The rig isn't too ominous. I chose a monopod because I thought it would be easier to use in a crowd. With it retracted I could hold it against my chest and easily move through the audience. I actually arrived late and worked my way towards the front. I chose a spot near the center for video recording purposes but that turned out to be the optimum spot for the audio recording (device has two side mics and one center mic).

This was a free show in the city next to Haley's hometown, so I guess security wasn't too concerned about filming. The event organizers later estimated the crowd for the show to be 15,000 people and many of them were recording.

Below is the same audio paired to a video recording shot from the front row by someone using a Canon dslr. Through trial and error, we have found that while the best camera shots come from up close that doesn't seem to be the the optimum place to record audio.

It wouldn't be practical to hold such a heavy camera above your head on a pole. The Q and the Zoom are light enough together that it was no trouble at all - and I have a bad rotator cuff.

^^ Video of Haley Reinhart performing a new song last weekend using this setup:



The audio is from the Zoom H2N recorder. It and the Pentax Q are mounted on a Manfrotto MMC3-01 Monopod that I held over my head. The Monopod is 57.28 inches in height.

The video is shot with the Prime lens but a little blurry. Quite possibly due to operator error. I didn't really know what I was doing and lifted the camera over my head several times to record and it would shut off due to inactivity. At some point I accidentally hit the right buttons and the recording button began flashing. That was just before this song.

Someone paired the audio and video for me. I have some video software and once I install it I may post a link to the original video and audio as recorded by the Q alone.
