Nice Chris, thanks. Couldn't find those guys no matter how I searched the site.

More Canon HV10 footage - bucket loads of detail!

http://blip.tv/file/get/TheCreativeL...In720HD465.mov


I guess it's primarily because I've moved up to the HV10 from an old Canon camcorder, rather than down from a high-end HD video camera - but to me the HV10 produces amazing results! This Macro footage poses wonderful subtle tones and huge scoops of detail, it's the perfect camera for this kind of 'close up' product shot.

I'm heading out to Hong Kong in a few weeks and I'm wondering if I should pick up an HV20, but will it really be that much better than what the HV10 can produce?

James,
Very beautiful footage. Very sharp too. What worries me are those interlace artifacts whenever there's movement - those are not so nice... I wonder if they'd go away when shooting at 30F?

HV10 and amazing results....you better believe it! I love my Hv10 too!

Image quality wise I don't think you'll see much difference between the 10 and 20 in daylight/brightlight recordings. In lowlight situations is were you will see the difference from what I gather.

Anyway, I'll be very happy with my HV10 for some time to come.

Thanks for another great looking vid.

btw, what's with the Rally Racing game footage at the end? Did that sneak in there on ya? :)

HV20 raw 24p (60i)

HV20 raw 24p (60i) sample (not mine!) without with the cine preset - just automatic:

http://www.youngsterproduction.com/v...hv20%20raw.m2t

If anyone can tell me how to render as true 24p in vegas I would appreciate it
(remove the 2:3 pulldown)

The interlacing is because of standard pulldown added to the 24p for 1080i standards compatibility.
What will be the case with 25p PAL raw footage? Will that show interlacing? Will VLC be able to play it as true 25p?

Thanks for this. But what I'd really like is a side-by-side comparison of some raw video.

Although I'm not a big believer in derterming quality soley by still grabs, the HV20 is obviously sharper in those pictures.

I totally agree. Having said that, the low light comparison (the pic with the snooker table) was a lot clearer on the HV20. The HC7 was very noisy. I'd love to see the original video of those caps.

Although I returned both the HC7 and the HV20, my vote
would definitely go to the HV20.

The HV20's pictures(video or still photo) had a lot less noise
when compared side-by-side in low-light situations. The room
where I did the comparison only had one 100W bulb.

HV20 Clip (24p) FULL RES 1920x1080

http://447productions.com/HV20_24p_1920x1080.mov (115mb)

here it is.... before posting this link, I downloaded it from the above link onto my 13" Macbook, which is alot smaller then the "Actual" size of the QT movie. It looked alot more pixelated the the same QT file on my desktop, even at that size.

After 8 minutes or so it was downloaded, and I clicked on the screen which the movie on it and right clicked to get a small dropdown window which gave me a few options. I selected "SAVE AS QUICKTIME MOVIE" onto my desktop and when I double clicked the newly saved movie, everything was exactly as the original file that I uploaded. And of course for those with a smaller screen, the best option is under the Quicktime menu, View as "Half Size." From there, I suppose DVI out to a larger 1080 HDTV? Hope this helps.

New HV10 footage - low light and digital zoom

Wow! Have you noticed how many people are viewing this corner of the DV Info right now, 47 at the time of posting!

I guess it must be all the interest in the HV20

Anyway, here is another sample from the HV10
