Steel Mill Footage

Guys....I have posted some stuff on our website...I'm hoping my web admin doesn't "bust" us due the the amount of bandwidth downloading...

Maybe Chris can give me access to upload these files.

Here's the deal...

this footage was shot both HDV and DVCProHD at the same time. We used the HD-SDI output and ran matching TC also.

There is a PDF file you can read about how we did this....Canon did a little article on us...so just download the file.

Also...all the shots in this QT are DVCPro100 except one. I know it will be tough to tell which in a compressed QT....but I'll tell you. The last shot is HDV.

We edited this on an Avid Adrenaline...ingesting the DVCProHD AND the HDV.

There are several scenes in this video (ultimately a 28 minute plant tour and a 4 minute tradeshow video) where we COULDN'T power or tether the DVCPro HD deck....so we just shot HDV. We thought it would be a good test.

It was...we can see the difference of course....but cutting the footage together matched nicely...and ultimately...downcoverting it to SD and playing on a DVD in letterbox mode....no one can see the difference.

I was seriously impressed with the white hot whites...and the grays and blacks and keeping the chroma colors. Contrast is not an issue with this camera.

Also...we used a N6 ND filter in the matte box for the pouring shots, in addition to the ND on the camera.

Camera was set 1080i and shooting 24f.

Enjoy.

Hi Kevin, thanks for posting. I think you meant to post this in the XLH1 forum because this is where we post footage from the XHA1 and XHG1.

Here's the XLH1 forum:

I'm sure Chris will move it.

My first clip

Hello,

here my first sample clip of my A1. Shot in 1080/25f for my current project on bouldering. CC done in AE Pro 7.0. Compressed with Sorenson Squeeze 4 (1280x720 25fps).

Criticism is welcome! ;)

A1 35mm adapter test

Hi Gang,

Check this out:

http://rapidshare.com/files/22913178...media.wmv.html

I used a 10+ macro attached to the Canon A1 then at about 5cm from the macro I had a 7+ macro and then about 5cm from the 7+ macro I had a nikon lens.

On the second shot I twisted the 7+ macro a bit to try to get a kind "tilt and shift" effect going on. On the last shot you can see a lot of dust.

Anyway, let me know what you guys think. I'm far far far far away from having any knowledge on how to build a 35mm adapter. This was just a little test.

24F at night

This is my first day with my new xh-A1, I was testing how this cam was at night with available light. Shoot at 24f sd at 0db using one of the cinegama presets. One question , I was trying to upload one of the presets I download from here to the cam and the card to cam option was gray out , how do you upload from card to cam?.

New Footage.

Just received my A1 last wednesday. Cracked that thing outta the box and wow!!. I was impressed with the size, the look, the texture, the overall build. It's almost worth the 3,250 just to be able to look at it.

Had a chance to play around with it last night. Shot a few close up's of objects from about the house. Shot a sun-set as well.

The video I've posted here has its fair amount of problems. Some shakeyness, some graininess, some blurriness. All my fault. But there are a couple of good shots, showing the close-up, detailed, capability of this camera.

WARNING: the file is 190 megs.

That was spectacular. The coin shot and salt(?) into the glass was beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.

looking for a video

Hello all; Just wondered if anyone recalls a clip/link that was up awhile back, possibly late last year, showing a musician playing guitar on a railroad trestle, in a warm sepia like tone? Could have been a band video.
Sorry, can't remember if it was in the A1, H1. or G1 forums. Now that I've rebuilt my computer, I should be able to view that video, and all the other great contributions here without the player stuttering. Thanks for any help in advance, and all the great pointers to using the A1 to it's fullest

25f pans and close ups

Did a little more testing using the 25f on the A1. Panning seemed a lot smoother and the close-ups using manual focus gave great results. Shot with 1/50th shutter, auto aperture and 1/32 ND filter.

Vids 44mb

Music Video (inspirational) with XH-A1

The worship minister at my church wrote a song for a father/ daughter that attend: he's an artist, and she a ballet dancer. We had interviewed the artist for a video segment to act as an intro to this live dance segment featuring his daughter dancing to the song, performed at a Christian conference we had last Tuesday at our church. We also were lucky to have a local string duet, Acoustic Eidolon accompany the live set, and I filmed it all, along with one rehearsal, to cut this music video, that we later used in worship services Sunday.

I shot everything on the PANALOOK preset, 0db gain, tungsten WB, and all hand-held (some shakily so) except for the interview segments.

A hi(ish)-rez version, 1024x576 90MB WMV file is here: http://www.browncowvideo.com/kennedy/jitd.htm

A low-rez Flash version is here: http://www.browncowvideo.com/kennedy/jitd_lo.htm

The intro/ interview of the artist, Scott Kennedy, is here (also Flash):
