Is there anyway we could get some DV footage (or even a hi quality .mov file) so it can be viewed on a TV screen?

Ok, it's as I thought, somehow you have an old version.... You sure you cleared your cache?

The sample footage up is 3000Kbps MPEG4, which to my eye looks better than 9500Kbps MPEG2, and is very difficult to differentiate from the raw DV. Once the production units are done (CNC work as we speak), I will post up some more, including raw DV. I wanted them up as true to the raw DV as possible, while keeping downloads manageable, so that there would be no surprises for the beta group.

It should be noted that other than rotating the footage right side up, this stuff is coming right from an NTSC GS400 in 16:9 frame mode. There's no CC, noise reduction, nothing. In fact, the last clip is zoomed 10% as I didn't zoom in enough to cover the overscan area. I hate doing that with SD DV as the resolution is nothing to write home about in the first place.

I will also have XL2 and XL1s footage as these cams are lined up for shoots as soon as I have the final Brevis versions in my hands.

Wayne, I wonder if your ISP uses a proxy server? If so, the old cached site should be refreshed shortly.

XL2 footage

Hello Dennis,

Well, I apologize for missing your entry into the adapter market. Your product looks very interesting. It seems you have put a lot of thought into your adapter. That is much appreciated.

I look forward to seeing some of the XL2 sample footage!!!! I'm currently downloading one of the GS400 samples. Sadly, I only have dial-up.(sloooow)

Congratulations!

Thanks Brian! If it wasn't for encouraging posts like that, I'd have a great adapter for myself...and the Brevis project would be dead. Frankly, I've been stunned by the great response. The first 11 units will be going out in a few weeks, and there will be a lot of footage to look at. I'm pushing very hard to have a production model in my hands by week's end. I have an XL2 and XL1s owner here anxious to do some shooting!

Sorry about the download size. I wanted to post footage as close to the raw DV quality as practical..so 3000Kbps full frame wmv (MPEG4) is as good or better than MPEG2 at 9500Kbps.

It should be a direct "screw on" proposition. There is a frame test that will deternmine if you'd a mild macro or not. Based on testing data so far, no Sony cam's will require a macro or spacer. pmail if you'd like to try the frame test.

Footage is upside down, but a flip module is in CAD stages as we speak.

All of my energy is in the adapter...so the flip unit will need to wait a bit. It's done in CAD already and pretty much ready for CNC programming.

I have designed a rail support unit for the Brevis itself, and if there's a demand for the same on the flip module, it will be simple to do.
