Solomon I am really impressed with this - awesome stuff!!

How did you construct a cover for the cam? Have you got a pic of it?

Did you use Vegas for the slow mo from 60i?

Did you colour correct any of it/how did you get the effect witht he headlights?

How did you steady the cam? was it all handheld or did you use a steadicam?

What settings did you use when recording? Did you use cine mode? If not could you explain any other manual settings? - shutter speed, contrast, 24p?


Thanks

I am really impressed - looks great! Just velocity to 50% in vegas or how did you make the slowmotion sequence. Did you use the cinemode?

This makes me want to:

A Sell my HD100
B Buy a Canon A1 for work
C Use the remaining money to buy an HV20 for PLAY!!!

Seriously though. Looks amazing. How do you did the color correction? What way were things swung? Great work.

Wow.. amazing. Apart from being the most beautiful footage I have seen from the HV20 so far, that was also the most stable footage I have seen from the HV20 so far. I can't see any rolling shutter distortion anywhere in your footage. How did you stabilize it? What's your secret?

Sorry I forgot to post my settings!

No steadicam etc.. Just a tripod. There is some rolling shutter artifacts if you look for them. Mainly the lightning.

My Camera Settings:
Shutter Priority Mode
Shutter Speed: 100
Exposure Locked: -2

Custom HV20 Settings
Col. Depth -1
Sharpness -1
Contrast -1
Brightness -1

Color Correction:
Color Curves (more yellow in highlights)

Slow motion was done with vegas. :)
