I am a little bit confused why Obin show us this DXV100 clip ? Why to hell in this thread? Its just a clip from a ordinary video cam. Ordinary video look, no cmos look, no 35mm look, no 4:4:4, no 10bit, so tell us why?

Obin, on what design you working now? Is it this old FPGA story, or your PC 4:4:4 10bit thread design?

Well frank this is no normal dvx video clip but, a dvx100A with a direct Pipe from the CCD's to a usb port on the side..I am also beta testing for reel-stream.com

jsut thought you guys would like to see it...it's 1280x720 8 or 10bit with NO compression..IMHO it's much better then the Panasonic VariCam.....

we are working a a big CGI shot using this "mod" on our dvx100A...I will post when it's done...looking VERY good, you could NEVER do what we are doing with standard old video like dv or dvcpro!

This is very encouraging...the video on the reel-stream site is very choppy. I didn't think the progress was actually this far by now. Very nice looking footage.

Okay, i understand, but it is still a ccd and without 35mm dof.

But realstream is a big step in the right direction. COOL !!!

Work it with or without a PC?
Can you record direct to HDD?
One or two HDD?
3.5 or 2.5HDD?

Question to all.
Why most of the people complain about CCds ??

Hi Obin, I just checked out the video and it looks amazing! Is there a thread discussing this mod or is this something that you have worked on without mentioning in detail on the board? Is the mod difficult? What kind of ccd's are you using and did you install them yourself? Anyhow it looks great and is a very exciting development.

thanks,
Omar

The video looks awesome!

For your new device, are you using the Rockwell Altisens CMOS chip? I read that JVC is using it in their next camcorders and it looks amazing: 2/3'', 1920X1080, and with unusually good dynamic range.

Am I stupid, or it's me almost the only one that understood that video was made using a PANASONIC DVX100 MODIFIED by REEL-STREAM (which Obin bought and is really happy with his great decision)????

I am probably the one who is confused....is the video clip shot in sd and then rezzed up to 720P? If so that I am shocked at how good it looks.

Nope. The guys at reel-stream manage to get a HD signal from the DVX using pixel shift that already exists in the chip setup!

www.reel-stream.com

For info, you should go to www.reel-stream.com to find out all about this mod.

Obin: would it be an idea to post your results at their forum as well? People are dying to see some results there!

Steven

ps: footage looks super-clean!

Obin, I think 1280x852 would be the correct size to use.

Dvx 100

Hi all
that was Juan did is the best thing so far.
CCD or CMOS is religion, CCD is better with low light, fact.

No 35 DOF, rubbish no -HD even build up from an
industrial cam with Altasens has WITHOUT any adapter 35 mm DOF, FACT.

There is no CMOS nor CCD out with 25 f/ps equivalent to 35mm film, fact.

IF yo do have the money go for a Viper with a Grass Valley Venom Flash Pak
that's a 4:4:4: RGB signal over dual HDSDI conection from the Viper in the flash pack. 10 minutes the same as a 1000 feetfilm reel. You should have three of them, nice pack.

There is Blu-Ray, data transfer rate max 36.5Mb/s Data capacity 23 GB.

Sony has Professional Disk with data transfer rate 72Mb/s (one head)
144Mb/s (two heads, write) 170 Mb/s (read) Data Capacity 23Gb.

Sony XDCAM family will use this disk, BUT different Media formats could be a repeat of the VHS/Betamax debacle, no thank's no need for.

So disk based is the only open and cheap way to go.

To be dependend of the P2 card is no good idea.
An USB disk connected to your Laptop and
your footage is just there as with P2 or any BLU-PROFESSIONEL-HD disk.

Resolution is one thing, low light, good optics, good handling, and colordepth is important, very important too. To upscale the Juan DVX100 pics should be easy. This cam with an decend simple to use, dead simple but genius 35mm adapter, WOW
