Absolutely stunning! It doesn't just look great. It feels great. You didn't just show me the place. You imparted, to me anyway, a sense of the spirit of the place. No small feat that.

Muy bueno!

I really liked your video. The editing was clean and well paced, and the footage itself looked fantastic. People and places were well lit. Recently I was starting to have some doubts about the A1s image quality, especially dealing with fringing, but your footage showed me what can be done in the right hands. I'm jealous of your skills ;)

Christopher, you're not alone. I've been looking at the EOS5DMkii and for the short term, after watching this video, I'm going to instead invest in a wide angle lense (WD-H72) on the A1. I wish I could buy talent and experience!

I have this camera and not one thing I've shot looks as good as yours. Great looking stuff. I'm gonna try your preset.
I'm curious did you shot the clouds in the beginning or are they from videocopilot?
Did you use a crane or dolly some shots are really smooth. If so what did you use?
Sorry for all the questions. I just want my camera work to look as good as yours.

Thank you Ramon, Roger, Jason, Dennis, Edwin, Mick, Tripp, Christopher, Matt and Tom. Your comments are really kind and make me do my job better and better every day.

I would like to ask you permission to quote (mention) some of your comments and use them for some promotional materials I'm trying to publish on a production magazine here in Mexico and in my hopefully new website.


Answering to your question Tom, the time lapse cloud at the beginning I shot it with the still camera Canon Xti with the EF-S 18-55mm lens.
The jib I used is the Kessler Crane 12ft and the dolly spider from portajib.

Thanks again!

Manuel, feel free to quote away on anything I've said. If you could post a copy on Vimeo.com or other HD server and make it downloadable, it would be helpful to analyze it better in a larger format. I believe we could watch it then in 720x24P wmv (or equivalent).

Superb job! Forget about selling the vacations, you can sell a few thousand A1's with that!

Your use of perspective is marvellous as well - it is like watching 3D much of the time. Normally I'm hard to please with filter effects but these are spot on too. The overall effect of all the elements is excellent.

Incredible video.

Recently I've been stunned at the advent of P2 cameras and thought the XHA1 was being left being in the shade. This video has reaffirmed my faith in my XHA1!

Well done.
