SG35 - XM2 : 1st Test footage

Well here is a sample of the SG35 i just sent Wayne.. shot indoors with a canon EF 50mm f1.8

nothing fancy just a H264 20sec clip messing around in the kitchen, as it gets dark here at 4.30pm, not had a chance to film outdoors, will be tomorrow (sat)

Let me know what you think..

Seriously impressed. that was some clean footage. very crisp. And in low light! I couldn't see any grain, or aberration, but Mr.Kinney being a perfectionist probably will. Nice one Quinn.

Feeling Blue

Wayne, the image looks sharp. But have you any idea where the blue comes from, when there are bright reflections? Doesn't it bother you a bit? Much of the footage I've seen with your adapter has it, or is it because it's a 1ccd camera?

It's a detail from the lamp.

All in all, very nicely done!

Kurt,
Yes, that is a slight bit of colour abberation going on there, due to the condenser system used. It becomes apparent on over exposed area's of the frame. All is well with well exposed shots.

OK,
We should have some HD100 footage and pictures up on thursday/friday if all goes well.

I have also phoned a DVX100 user, that lives in the next town from me. Im hoping to meet up with him either at the end of this week or next week.

Will keep you all posted

Awesome Wayne. Good to know you got a hold of a HD100 for tests, I've been waiting for that. What type of subjects are you shooting with it?
What ever happen to that FX1 test?

Hello Micheal,

Its not actually me doing the HD100 tests, but my customer. I will keep you all informed of how that goes.

I did in fact meet with the FX-1 guy, but there was a problem with the baseplate on the day which needed some modifications so we could'nt get any good footage.

However, my friend is coming down with his z1 (just like fx-1) at the end of this month. We are planning on getting some great footage along Brighton beach.

I still need to find an XL user to test the SG35 with.

So there are HD100 users who already bought the SG35? Why haven't they posted footage yet?
Where will the footage be filmed? Can we make requests?
