Fantastic!

High-color saturated images.
High-luma contrast images.

Overexposed scene. Fill up a room with as much light as you have.

And to make it really cool to compare, the DV versions.

Don't remember if this was ever asked. This will all work at 24P, 24PA, 30P, and 60i? How does it handle this sampling rate?

Peter, in the process of putting some test frames together. Will have to wait until tomrrow to take some outdoor shots, but for now i'm just re-taking the last shot i posted without the speckles.

Yes, it will work on every mode, although there is no difference between 24P and 24PA at the RAW level, because there is no pull up/down whatsoever. you get the actual 24/30 frames.

Here's a quick and dirty(not any more) frame. It's very dark, and i'm so happy i got rid of the speckles i can't color-correct straight...so i just uploaded a PSD file with the raw R,G,B layers for you to color correct(align?) at will:

Next, i'm gonna try some different lighting and up-rezing....

If anyone was trying to download the .RAW film strips for the 3-second clip, i apologize because i went over quota and had to remove them. I will put together a clean clip with no dummy pixels...

Why are the frames your posting tilted?

Because the camera casing is still open, and that is the position that puts less stress on a flex cable which units the main body to the LCD half-shell.

Very clean image. There still are some speckles though. Not many, just a few. Must still be some noise in the lines.

Yeah, i forgot to note...since radio shack was closed, i had to borrow a couple of capacitors from my lab and I just grabbed a couple of random capacitances...

There is so much I can do with the few i have, so this is the closest i can get. I need a capacitor a bit smaller than this to get rid of all of it, but i'll get it tomorrow.

Mark,

Yes, and actually i'm going to try one right side up tomorrow if I can get it to sit right.

I figured the angle wouldn't be a problem for assessing the color and clarity of the image...

Fantastic Juan! I've been following this thread very closely. What impressed me most about your last image (the noiseless one) was the latitude it had for correction. I've had to master a lot of footage over the years and this grab was impressively forgiving when correcting for levels and white balance.

Count me in for a mod as well! I trust you'll keep it reasonable =)

Test Chart

If you can get it upright (or even if you can't) it would be great if you could shoot a few different test charts. I'm particularly interested in the gain in resolution that seems pretty obvious by this image and the test HD upres I did of it. If I remember Scott's book correctly, he compared two images side by side of that focus chart... one that was after DV compression and one if a person could "hypothetically" pull the image straight off the chip. Looks like he's gonna have to put out a 3rd edition, huh? Anyway, the book has some sample color charts, (and that focus chart could give us an idea of resolution if you can't find a more detailed pro chart). Record it to DV tape to so we can see the difference.

This is my first try and very bad, but i decided to post it anyway since i need to go back to studying.

I'm having a lot of trouble focusing with the tiny DV viewfinder. Even a small change is evident in the RAW R,G,B frames, but until i build a method for pre-viewing the raw footage in real time this will have to do.

The frames are unaligned in adition to being slightly off focus and the rez chart is not perfectly aligned since I can't see the entire frame of the CCD in the viewfinder...

And yes, those few red speckles will be gone tomorrow when i find the right cap size. :)

Focus

If you capture 3 seconds worth of frames while you slowly attempt to focus, you should be able to find the frame in your sequence that is most in focus. Its probably only four or five focus points in question, so just focus slowly through them on the viewfinder.
