HV30 Test Footage in 24

I currently have been shooting everything with my Canon A1 but just recently purchased the HV30 and WOW what a cool little camera. I just did some tests with it this past weekend and I wanted to show a little video I put together from the footage. It was all handheld except for I think two shots and it was shot in 24. I edit in sony vegas and did all the color grading with magic bullett. http://vimeo.com/1425840

The footage looks excellent.

Did you edit on a 60i timeline or did you process the footage first?

I edit in Sony Vegas. I shot it all in HD 24f and captured it in HD 24f and then edited it in a 23.976 1440x1080 timeline and then rendered out an .M2T. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Nice, very film like, this little camera still shocks me at what you can achieve, quality wise, from something so small.

Did you play around with the speed of the footage (slow motion etc ??) as where there is movement you seem to have excessive ghosting ?

You also seem to have got quite a bit of nice depth of field going on in your example which really adds to the filmic look, here is some test footage from the HV30 I shot with a DOF adaptor a few days ago:

Like I said on Vimeo, you must inverse telecine, then edit to eliminate ghosting.

Final Cut Studio doesn't do that automatically in 24p 1080i easy setup? Or was another software package being used?

I'm thinking about a HV30 as a 2nd camera to run with my JVC HD110. Looks like nice footage if the shutter speed and ghosting could be fixed.
