    Thanks for the observations Mark.

    The entire file structure was transferred in both incidences of the problem, so it is a puzzle.

    We seldom shoot single clips of 2 hrs in length, which both of these were, though we had a couple others that were nearly that long, with no issues. Hopefully will not run into this again (2 hr clips). The boredom factor rises exponentially for anything over an hour.

    Yes the entire root folder was transferred to the hard drive.

    I instructed him to use the media browser. Did he…not positive we were off shooting while he transferred the files.

    Is there any chance he could have corrupted the file on my XQD card as he was transferring it to his hard drive, before I was able to transfer it to my hard drive with my MacBook Pro?

    Been using this camera for about 18 months now and have never seen this, but also have never had anyone data wrangling files using a PC. Always a MAC.

    Producer used my card reader and imported the entire folder. Then I used my Mac and did the same thing.

    For the most part the sequence was rendered, however there were two clips on which I used the Neat filter to reduce noise and one of them also had Warp Stabilizer on it. There were also dozen clips or so that had the Warp Stabilizer applied.

    FYI the three exports all completed and are fine. The last time I saw before I let it cook over night was over 8 hrs. The time actually increased after it started exporting.

    Here are my export settings. For the most part the sequence was rendered, though there were two clips, about 15 seconds each that had a Neat noise reduction filter that weren’t rendered.

    Essentially I used the timeline settings: QT, ProRes 422, 1920 x 1080, 24 bit, no limit on data rate, none of the boxes in the bottom panel were selected and Time interpolation was set at Frame sampling

    Can also try Resolve 12. They’ve added editing features that work pretty well. Not as elegant as Premier Pro CC, but I edited an hour program with it recently and it worked fine.

  • Pat,

    I and most of my friends who are using FS7’s don’t use support for the 70 X 200, though I do use one if I use the doubler and also for my sigma 50 X 500, but it’s a beast and the weight concerns me that it would be an issue. I doubt if the 70 X 200 weights more than the Sony kit lens the 28 X 135.

    From what I have been told by the Sony techs, the lense mount on the FS7 is very robust and can definitely handle the Canon 70 X 200. I use mine frequently and other than the one problem I had with a stuck pin, have not run into the issue again, though I’m constantly on the lookout for a stuck pin, at least when I have the luxury of time to examine the pins, which quite frankly isn’t all that often.


  • Hi Pat,

    I certainly understand how you feel. When this happened to me, I had just had the camera and lenses for a couple of days and had a shoot for it in another couple days, so I was a bit panicked. Fortunately I had a friend who had the same issue and he pointed out that it was the second or third pin in the lens mount that got stuck in the down position. I used a small pin to pick at it and it sprang back out.

    Since then I’ve used the Metabones adapter 50 or so times and have never had a repeat of the incident. My friend on the other hand had to send his camera to Sony since the sticking pin issue seemed to occur pretty frequently.

    On the high side, it sounds like you have had your camera repaired and I think you really have nothing to worry about. I haven’t had the issue again and neither has my friend. Have fun and enjoy!

    It is easy if the option is in the keyboard shortcuts menu. It’s not.

    The folks at Adobe have acknowleded that it is a bug in PP CC 2015-2.

    If you know another way to create the shortcut, please share that wisdom.
