My first clip

Hi,

I'm a new XH-A1 owner, and last night I got to go out and video a local jazz group a friend plays in.

This is going to sound strange but the youtube compressed version looks much better. I had problems with focus on the original, and the compression helped that a bit :).

I also did some image tuning in compressor. I really loved the camera preset I used on this one, and white balancing does make a difference!

I'm still learning the camera, and I'm completely new to the whole video thing, but I really had a blast doing it! Anyway, any comments appreciated.

Thanks for watching!

New short made with A1/RedRock M2...

Here's a short I made with a couple of friends. I wanted to do some tests in terms of editing a scene with dialogue. There wasn't as much light as I would have liked, but it was kind of a last minute thing. It was shot on the XHA1 at 1080 with a RedRock M2 35 adapter and a Nikon 50mm lens. Thanks for watching!

Until I can get a high quality version uploaded, YouTube will have to do. Hang in there.

Car show montage

I shot some video at a Hot August Nights Show-n-Shine event.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dGifbhHAd0

Specifics:
Used a monopod for some shots. Good for crowded events, but not rock-solid. Set the camera on the ground for low angle footage.

Shot at 60i, 1/60, ND filter at 1/32. Used the OUTSIDEN custom preset. With zebras set at 85%, I dialed in the shots to where I had just a little striping on the subject. I think they're still a bit underexposed. With bright sunlight and glossy paint, it was a challenge.

Interview Frame Grabs (Panalook preset)

I was in Rochester yesterday shooting B cam for some interviews. Got some decent shots of people and some other random things.

http://www.revolutionmax.com/frames/frames.html

Using the Panalook preset for the A1 and SD 16x9. I'm a little bummed because I completely spaced having the gain at 6 so there is a bit more grain than there would be otherwise. Still even in SD this thing always suprises me more.

- Kyle

A1+fast zoom+Fluo light footage

I have recently bought a sigma 24-70mm f2.8 (constant) because I thought it could be a practical solution for when I can't take all my lenses. Before I tried it I was a bit afraid how it would work with low light, but after today all my problems vanished. This was shot with 2 small portable "fluo bars" and nothing else. The lens was always at f2.8. I don't really remember which preset I used. All I did on post was to mess with the levels.

More eclipse footage

This was fun...

I've messed around with different compression methods for YouTube, but I give up. It's still way darker than the original. Any suggestions for better hosting solutions?

Anyway, for the bright shots I used 1/6-ND, 1/60, f9.5. For the dark period I was at 1/4, f3.2. (no ND)

Couple Videos Done with the A1

Hey all!

Finally got my site thrown together and content actually hosted on it. I have a music video and a short film for an old contest up there that I shot on my A1 (as well as a second short music video that was done for fun), if you're interested.

www.rhapsodistproductions.com is the site, check under Portfolio and click either "Confession" or "I Can Feel Free". I Can Feel Free is slightly lower quality because I uploaded my youtube render for that, and I still need to recompress a higher rez version. Let me know if you like them!

Grainy image/Noisy

I just got my A1. Did some low light and natural light tests. More grainy than I thought. Especially in the background. Usually most noticeable when I pause the image on my computer. Any suggestions on tweaking the settings to get a smoother look?

You would probably get more responses had you not posted this in the clips section.
