Orange san francisco 2 review

Just as with the stills camera, outdoor movie shooting needs good ambient light if the Orange San Francisco 2's video camera is to perform well.

Our video of a moving train is sharp and clear - this was taken on a bright day. On a dull, rainy day, though, the camera struggles to capture enough light to take a photo. And, because the lens sits flat on the backplate rather than being recessed, we found it often got splattered with rain, producing shots we couldn't use.
