New Video/ Canon XHA1 & HV30

Here is the latest video I shot using the two Canon's. Let me know what you guys think. I had fun and most importantly learned more stuff. Enjoy!

Morgan, the video looks excellent. I'm very green with editing. How did you get it to look so film like? Why did you use an HV30 instead of another XHA1 or another 3 chip cam? Did you do a lot of color correction and other effects? I'd love to pick your brain, man!

Hey Patrick,

Thanks for the complements. I used Magic Bullet Looks for coloring. Also, I shot in 60i 60fps and exported in 29.97fps. Those have a lot to do with the film look. Those are the cameras I own. The HV30 happens to shoot just as well as the XHA1. I don't have access to another one unfortunately. We use the HV30 mainly for close-up b-roll. As far as effects, other than coloring, not much. I knew I wanted something right before black and white and played with a couple of frames until I got it right and colored every clip. Hope that helps some.

"60i 60fps"

Did you mean 60i and 1/60 shutter? If not, what was the shutter speed you used?

Looks good except for the fact that it looked like the auto-iris was on because scenes kept getting lighter and darker.

That's because the auto-iris was on. My color grading was not perfect either. Thanks for the critique. That is definitely something I can look to correct.
