Flickr HV20 photo group set up, for photos and frame grabs

http://flickr.com/groups/hv20/

Just letting you all know I've set up this photo group on Flickr specifically for HV20 photos and frame grabs. So come along an join up. There are no restrictions, so members are welcome to upload as many photos or frame grabs as they wish. Flickr use very minimal compression, so your photos will always look great. Be aware if you join for free your photos will be reduced to a maximum width or height of 1024.

I essentially set up the group as being somewhere to visit and see what others are doing with this camera. A source of inspiration I guess, and quick to view without having to download any huge video files.

So far all my clips are frame grabs from video as I don't yet have a Mini SD card. If you have a copy of the VLC player, these are easy to grab. Play your video, pause it on a frame that looks good, select 'snapshot' to save that frame as either a jpg or png file, upload it to Flickr, add it to the group and you're done! Where the photos are saved from VLC player can be set in it's preferences.

None of my VLC Screencaps looked that good (I don't think atleast)

Maybe because you compressed them down to such small photos... when I see the fullsize grabs it looks like crap compared to the video

Glenn, your compositions are really nice. I see you've got the SGPro. I'm interested in that setup with the HV20. Would you please post some footage with a 50mm, 28mm and a small tele 85mm, if you don't mind ? Could you please not open too much the lense, T4.0 is fine !

It would be very nice of you ! A kiss on the cheek for your help (I know, I know it's not a lot...) !

I open my M2T streams in MPEGStreamclip and export unscaled TIFFs, open those in Photoshop, resize to 1024x576 and save JPEG 100% and that comes out pretty nice with Flickr.
