XH A1 mini movie

White swans meet other waterbirds. Strong music.
A little 1,5 minute movie 'stresstest' to find the MPEG2 critical moments shooting with the XH A1 Canon.

Outdoors with the Letus Extreme

I love the Canon A1 with the LetusEX. I got outside today to get some footage and it came out so gorgeous. What a great combination. This is all with an 85mm Nikon Prime. No CC, straight out of cam using Panalook preset.

Comments? :)

Looks absolutely gorgeous.

What model is that 85mm prime? I'm searching for one on eBay but there are a lot of re-issues of it.

I'm not sure what model but I got it from keh.com They have a big selection and their rating of used lenses is much more creditable than ebay. Look there for one...prices are great too.

I don't know about the Beta state exposureroom is running on, I received this message if you hit the movie:

'We're Sorry, there was an Error Attempting this Operation
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.'

But mostly it is running.

XH-A1 High School Play

Hey guys,
This is just a short 2 minute clip of a high school production of "Beauty and the Beast." I shot it with no presets, AWB, +3 gain.

www.vimeo.com/1076159

I used IAF, which worked okay for most of it, but I did have a lot of moments where focus went soft for about 2 seconds when panning or when lighting would change on the stage.
-Steve

Do you think normal focus setting would have worked better?

Vasquez Rocks

I've been working on a new preset based upon the REALITY preset and came up with something I named REALSHP. The intent is to have natural looking colors that don't require a lot of color grading but can be made to "pop" with a slight saturation boost in post if desired.

To test this preset, yesterday, I shot some footage at Vasquez Rocks, located in North Los Angele County, CA. Many of you will recognize it as the backdrop for a multitude of motion pictures and television shows.

Here's the result of the experiment. No color grading was done in post.

The video was edited in NewTek's SpeedEdit. The audio was created automatically in in Adobe Soundbooth.

Newbie with 1st video, around town... Check it out please...

Hello all!
I just recently got a XH-G1 and am trying to get back into the whole video thing. Its been 6yrs since I've done anything, but I learn pretty quick.

Anyways the video is just a montage of shots around downtown Valparaiso, In and Ogden Gardens, Valparaiso. Let me know what you think please. Any feedback would be nice. I'm learning everything I'm doing right now on the fly...

Thanks for posting; I also find the effect with black level boost interesting. If you can recall your settings, please do post them.

Hi neighbor

Not bad at all. Practice alot and it will all come together. This forum has been a tremendous help learning from the pros. Are you planning on doing any video work with your cam? I may need some help at times with another XH-A1. I got my first job tomorrow using it. I also will be using an HV30.
Rich

I noticed the shot of the sun in the beginning. I've been a little paranoid of shooting the sun because of the warnings in the manual. Does anyone know what kind of damage, if any, pointing the lens at the sun can cause?

Nice video btw, the colors look good. Did you use a preset?
