Heinz Contest Entry Shot with HV20 and Letus

As a lark this weekend, I shot this for entry into the Heinz Ketchup contest with my granddaughter as the talent:

Very nice. Nice concept. I hope you win. What did you use for a lense adaptor? m2, Brevis?

Thanks David. Used Letus35a and HV20... Used Nikkor F2.0 100mm for frontal shoot. Nikkor 50mm F 1.4 for rear shot.

Duh...!! I feel stupid. Your post title says "Letus". Thanks for the info and not pointing out my stupidity.

What ASA are people generally rating the HV20 without lense adaptors?

ASA 400, 320, 200???

Again looks good Chris.

Looks super clean :D

Go little Canon, go! It's like it was *made* with the 35mm adapter in mind with it's latitude and 24P function, eh?

David, I've looked for the ASA answer with google - what I've found is people saying it's between ASA 100-200. The consensus was ASA 120, so that's what I'm going to go by for now. By all means, I challenge someone to contest this number and prove a higher ASA number - and supply proof ;)

Interesting.

ASA 120 is much slower then what I was hoping for. That means that with a lense adaptor it would rate at ASA 50 or even less. Hopefully I can rate it at ASA 200. I'm still looking at the HV20 as a companion "b" camera to my JVC HD 100 which I normally rate in the ASA 250 - 325 area. I was hoping that the HV20 would be in the same ballpark.

Of course shooting with the shutter at 48 at 24fps helps with more latitude.

In the end it's an $1100 24p camera which is amazing, so I'm still ordering one. Next week I'm planning on testing it with a dsc chip chart to see what kind of latitude I can pull out of it.

Thanks for the info Robert.

David:

Be sure to shoot it in Cine mode, for the latitude test. We are seeing "perceived" wider latitude in that setting, and I am curious whether it really is just a shift in exposure, or if it truly widens the cameras latitude.

Answering Martin's questions.

Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of what I was shooting in. I was messing with my normal settings, looking for something to do a bit different on a 48 Hour project for this weekend. While I normally shoot in Cine mode, I'm pretty sure I was in TV mode, and I was shooting 24p. Shooting at 1/48 second at F2.2 in the camera. The 100 mm (frontal shot) was wide open at F2.8. The 50mm, from rear, as I recall, was about 2.8, also. Lighting was from the window, with a hand held white reflector at subjects right side. With the bottle shot, used a light with barn doors to brighten it up a bit. White balanced from the Window loight. I captured for my Vegas using Cineform NeoHDV, doing pull down on the fly.

Other than adjusting contrast and brightness, these edits have had no color correction. If I was to finalize for actual delivery, I certainly would be doing a bit of levels adjustments.
