Hallo Giovanni

Nice pictures not difficult with such a model.

It would be nice if you tell us which preset(s) you have used .

Thx

VIDEO ONLINE!
It's an 156MB HDV so maybe it's better to download it (right click, save as)

download it here! (Quicktime HDV native mov 1080p25)

WMV 640 x 360

Arnold
I used a mod preset which i will post soon. It's name is HDV2SD, and it's conceived for HD shooting for SD. High sharpness, no blacks, for cleaner image and easier CC.

Wild Florida - Panalook2 test

I shot this with my A1 this morning to test Steven Dempsey's new Panalook 2 preset. I was looking for something more natural for outdoors and something that would hold up to high contrast. Shot all manual settings with no CC. 1080i/60 1/60 sec.

Some of you might think Florida is all beaches and Disney World but there is still some Wild Florida just outside of Tampa. I decided to take a 2 hour walk to visit some favorite places. Nothing fancy, and I was alone, so I had to shoot my self to get any movement - sorry.

I think the Steven's preset worked great! Thanks for all your work on this Stephen.

I think this video is really one of the worst case scenarios for the A1 and the HDV codec... It seems to have held up very well in spight of compression and potential artifacting from the strobing lights...

Nicely composed...

Nice shallow Dof-shots Jim, did you use an 35 mm adapter?

No adapter, just the stock lens

I was very happy with results considering the changes in lighting and constantly being over/under exposed... the quicktime file is much cleaner than vimeo because of all the black. Here that is...

This was a nice little video, Jim. I'm still working on my craft but I appreciate clean pieces like this.

First shot - Autocross Race

This is my first time actually using the XH A1 out in the field. I played with it a bit inside of my house, but this is the first time outside.

Also, I picked up a book on Premier CS3 from Adobe Press, and after going through half the book, I was able to edit this video.

I still have a lot to learn, and still need to save up to buy some nice equipment.

This is a video that I shot at Gainesville, FL at the Gainesville Raceway. It's an autocross event hosted by Martin Sports Car Club, held on April 13, 2008.

Please let me know what you think and I'd appreciate some constructive criticism.

A1 macro with two stacked diopters

Litepanels Micro lighting a wasp on the wall, with two stacked Century achromatic diopters, 3.2x and 2.0x. Need to use a tripod, still experimenting with the setup.

you need to mark it 'unprivate' to view.

At least for me anyway
