Well... i don't know if it's really that good :-). The colours came out by themselves, if you ask me they're always coming out too rich, so i rather desaturate in post ;-). I don't really remember but it could be PANALOOK preset on, and maybe the WB a little off :P. As for shooting, it was 25F with shutter speed 1/50 with ND 1/32, and the iris open as much as it could be - that's the way i like to shoot :-).

P.S. Please adres me by my first name Przemek, my second doesn't really sound that good ;-).

You were using that "snap zoom" feature on the camera weren't you? Liked the quick zoom-in and zoom-out moves.

Hehe... i hope the guy who shot this will never read it... ;-)

The quick zoom is done by using the focus ring on the pro broadcast Canon lens on the Panasonic HPX500.

My friend who shot it is always complaining about zoom speed on his Sony Z1, so he was happy to have something that works faster... unfortunately he forgot about what he was shooting... ;]

XH-A1 - Ellwood Bluffs

Shot with Panalook preset, the image is fairly dark (-3db gain, i didn't boost any colors in post and it is an MP4) Is that normal for Panalook?

It doesn't look too dark to me. Your post in Vimeo says that you added some contrast and color boost. In some of the scenes with a lot of white (like the white shirts) it looks like there may be a touch too much contrast which will also darken the blacks. Is that what you mean?

Hi Marcel,
I replaced the video on vimeo with newer one (thats why the conflicting descriptions...) By too dark, I meant the image just felt dull and dim. I had the 1/32 ND on and -3db gain. Would it be a bad idea to go with 0db or +3db gain in bright sunlight?

Wildfire Video - XHA1

Used mostly the REALITY PRESET (does anyone know if REALITY uses Type 2 NR? How would I check?)

NR settings aren't part of Custom Presets. However, you really need to have a sitdown with the manual to learn how to see what settings a particular preset has.

Lordy! Let me get my foot out of my mouth!

You're right Jerome. I have no idea what I was thinking. I think perhaps lack of sleep has fudged my judgment. I stand/lay corrected.

The REALITY Preset does not use either of the NR settings.

Very nice. Made me see that the possibilities are only limited by the imagination.
