Some really good looking shots in there, but a lot of others were not so hot looking. kind of grainy, and lots with blown out highlights and invisible blacks. Might try tweaking your settings to not loose the information in BOTH the highlights and blacks, which i know is hard since it's very high contrast situations. The shot at 1:00 and another one, on the same beach i think, a few shots later looked proper for sure.

Yes, thanks for the input. A lot of that footage is older when I didnt know what I was doing with the camera, so the good looking footage is the newer stuff

It all looks great. Very tough to center the frame on a fast erratic moving target and much of the footage is right on the bullseye. The heck with 'perfect color footage' 110% of the time. Get the action and tell the story. Volcom takes 'perfect footage' and has a couple of 300 lb wrestlers take it to the back room and stomp on it, make it look old, add grain and hair and scratches, puts it back in their movie, and makes millions. That's what the crowd wants. For surfing footage, always totally perfect color and focus means you've sold out, might as well get a suit and tie and get a job on Wall Street. This video could use a little audio interview with the subject, some background. Otherwise it looks like about a year worth of clips and some very good surfing.

Bill,

I like the pfvision a lot better.

I sure would have liked to have seen the truecolor vs pfvision vs your modified pfvision. Could you do that at your next shoot and post?

Thanks for sharing,
Michael

Michael,
I don't use the original truecolor because I find it too soft. I was trying this one out, so that's the only reason I even used it. I don't necessarily like it, but in the dark it was brighter. I find the colors in the NLE to be a little too much. I might use it if I get in this kind of situation again...
Bill

Also, you can't really see the difference once it's rendered. I just watched it from here. The NLE shows a radical difference between these 2 pictures. Very interesting.

Thanks for sharing! That little extra bump in brightness has saved me a few times since putting together this preset. Granted it's not a HUGE difference but I believe the presets can only do so much in such a harsh situation.

I like to keep NR2 off as I like a sharper image. It's all personal preference. :)

"Come What May" Feature Film Shot On The XHA1

This new movie was shot on the A1! I just purchased the DVD and I must say , they did a great job! They used the M2 adapter. On our summer trip we visited the campus where it was filmed. Their website tells how is was made. Groovy Marsha!

Home

Enjoy

Basketball and the A1

Footage from the Tennessee vs. Gonzaga Basketball game on 1/7/09. I got to sit court-side, which was awesome.

Shot on the Canon XH-A1 with Letus Extreme and Redrock MicroMattebox. I mainly used a Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens.
