At least according to JC Conklin, whose recent credits included Director’s Assistant on Walking Dead and Office Assistant, then Runner on ABC’s Quantico.
Ever since I was a kid, I loved to act. I used to put on plays in the basement of my childhood home and by “put on”, I mean I was the Director, Actor, Producer, Costume Designer, Production Assistant, you name it. This was a stage play, but when a camcorder was involved, I guess you could say I was the Director of Photography, but I think my skills might have been lacking in that department at that age. Although my father was more qualified, I handed that role over hesitantly as he knew nothing about the arts and this “show” (who are we kidding, all of them) was destined for Hollywood.

First off, let me preface this review by saying nothing brings me more joy than getting a camera to try out and review. Some of the cameras I get are good and others are (in my mind) fantastic, great and all that. The Sony FS7II falls squarely in the second category. The second and maybe the more important set of questions are simple. I always ask myself, what would make me want to buy this camera? Secondly, what would compel (you) want to go out and buy this camera? Lastly, when it is all said and done, does it fit into what I am doing production-wise?

Irregardless, now that I’ve had a look? I ain’t ever going back. Our client, Go RVing, needed a wide-range of marketing video content for Broadcast and Web use, and they brought me in to direct a 4-day shoot on Michigan’s West Coast.

The fourth day was a practice in planning, logistics, and highway patrol as we shot seven vehicles on a large stretch of a US highway, through rolling vineyards and driving on wooded country roads.
