Another xf305 vid


Am I see it correctly that the videos are not very sharp ? Probably default auto mode was used, like at the slashcam test, i guees.

Nice Images. Very nice color and the bokeh on the lens is pretty creamy.

Thanks for posting.

I see what you mean. Possibly the in camera detail level was set really low, a good thing, as it allows better alteration in the grade. Certainly it's not a focus issue, as there is a definite plane of sharp focus in the CU shots.
Also colours and contrast are pretty washed out, again as you would have with BBC type settings - flattening things out to extend the dynamic range and preserve highlight and shadow detail, you then selectively boost it in the grade.
