Re: FS5 - Kit Suggestions

You are asking too much of the lens you are using. A typical setup for trackside motorsports would be a 2/3" sensor camera (giving greater DoF for slightly less critical focus) with a good quality ENG or EFP zoom.

If you open the clips in Catalyst Browse you should be able to see the metadata which will contain this information. You must have the full original file structure including the XML files for this to work correctly.

Re: SxS adapter for PMW-F5

The only cards you can use in an F5/F55 are SxS or XQD cards with XQD-SxS adapters. Nothing else can be used.

Re: F5 Recording XAVC S-Log3

Raw is better than S-Log3, but the files will be larger. But recording raw opens up more options as to which codec you can use in the camera. So you could use Meg2 (XDCAM HD) which is an Avid native codec for the edit and then use the raw for the grade.

Re: In EX1R, make two, three or four cup of same clip

Use Content Browser to import the clips in to a single folder. Content Browser will re-join the clips into one single clip.

This is due to the 4GB file size limitation of the FAT format used for the cards.
