HV10 is amazing... 15 minute Video...

A few raw screencaptures

http://www.lousyheros.com/videos/sweetmq.wmv

That is medium quality

I'm uploading high quality (1280 x 720) as I speak... it's 300 megs so it'll be a few hours...

All filmed with the HV10... it was pouring rain so I used a garbage bag, cardboard (for LCD and Lense Hood) and duct tape ... camera survived :)

Sony Vegas for editing... some of the zooms you see are done with vegas... but a lot of it was done with the HV10... you can ask and I can let you know if it was digital/optical

I'll have a "super" high quality... 1440 x 1080... later

I did one version but set the bit-rate lower so it doesn't look as good as I wanted...

I think I just went with auto, was too lazy to mess with it...

On my old Elura 2 I would set the shutter to 1/2000 and run progressive

http://www.lousyheros.com/videos/fpsfinal2hq.wmv is from the Elura 2

Hmm bag and foam on camera. When I shot some Airsoft stuff, I used a different approach. I told them if they hit me, I was going to get my friends .45 AGP and shoot back. Nothing came close ;)

I put a UV filter on just to protect the lense, tripod got hit about 20-30 times but never got hit in the body...

Going to make my own plexiglass case for it though :)

Screencapture squished to 50% of original size...

I still can't believe it came out of a video camera... let alone one I got for $900

Nice video! For the most part, I like your cuts and subtle effects. About 45% of the way thru you start a steady "on/off" thing where the vid cuts in and out. I think you can do with out that. In my opinion, its not aesthtically pleasing, just distracting. Also, you started the video like it was an account of a tournament by displaying "Sweet 7, event 1" But you dont really follow up with anymore information as the vid goes along. Lastly, a little more variety in music would go along way, I think.....unless you work for Rise Against. ;) Just some small nitpicks.

The action was great and the picture was clean, the editing and pacing was good. And it made me wish I hadn't sold my paintball gun!

Nice work, man!

Haha don't work for them, just like them ;)

And what you mentioned about the cutting out, I look back on it and think I could have done something else, a few other people mentioned that as well...

Could have said more about the event too, but didn't really feel it necessary...

Thanks for the suggestions

Also going to try shooting in a higher shutter speed, should come out a lot cleaner for the motion/paintballs :)

Also looking for any feedback in terms of technical/what you liked and what you didn't like...

I know you can see the ghetto lense hood at the corner of some of the shots... it was cardboard and ducttape ;) I'm making a full shield/cover out of plexiglass sometime soon...
