"Sunday Woods" - Nature short, EX1 + Letus

Another beautiful day. Went to the woods again today. This time with the Letus35 Extreme. Most shots are with a Nikkor 50mm F1.4. Graded with Magic Bullet. Please post comments on how it looks on your screen. Iím suspicious that my Dell 24″ has too much saturation. Everything except the interval recorded shots are shot in 720p. Used 1080p to get the extra pan&scan pixels on the interval shots.

Comments and critics are well appreciated.

Looked very good. You have a nice collection of some very well composed scenes. By chance are you also a still photographer? Each camera angle looked very well thought out and photogenic. Interesting choice of music. Also, visited your website. It is well laid out and you have some great videos posted.

Beautiful images, really brings the ex1 to life. I love the saturation and the composition is very filmic, many shots make me feel as though im halfway through a movie.

Very beautiful; almost Asia- cinema style

Your video looks very good on my screen, both Apple MBP 15" and on main screen, EIZO ColorEdge CG241W LCD (Spyder3 calibration). Beautiful naturel colors, very much almost "mood creation."

My humbel opinion (not critic): At one time, repeating scene style was noticed: slow pan down, fast cut to next scene, slow pan down, cut to next scene, etc etc etc. Perhaps more variation camera moves in scenes makes less noticed; also I (personal opinion) like nice cross dissolves between nature scenes, but see you have timed cuts to music chording. All very good, and much better than me.

Composition is much like good cinematography in high-style Asia films, as "Crouching Tiger" & "Hero"

I very much enjoyed and wish very much to take my (new) EX1 also to the woods.

Regards,

I really enjoyed that. Nice composition and colors.

This was only the second piece of video footage I've seen from the PMW-EX1 and was very impressed.

Nice work.
