Music made me want to drink a margarita, so that is what i'm drinking now while writing this. (good thing btw) :) I have never been to this location, but the fountain is beautiful. I remember seeing it somewhere though, I think in some discovery channel special about a wake-boarder who jumps over it on a ramp. I do agree with your statement about it being just a hair too dark.

I like the panalook, but the greens may have popped out a little more with VividRGB preset or TrueColor. I'm a fan of both. :)

As far as the shooting, your pan's were smooth and the focus transitions were clean. I too still have a lot to learn myself, but my recommendation, is keep playing with it and doing little practice scenes like this is very important when it comes to getting ready for that big shoot day. :)

New York Night & Day

I haven't posted anything in the year I have had the camera. I use Vegas 7 and don't do much more than fit my clips to the music. I know I have interlacing problems but need to start somewhere. As you will see, it is mostly hand held. Enjoy.

Paso Robels Trip

Hi Everyone,
Here's my 1st video with the XH-A1! You gotta love this camera.
I took it with me to Paso Robels, CA this weekend while wine tasting.

Here's the 1280 X 720 version: http://www.vimeo.com/956274

Comments welcome!

Thanks,

Hi Greg,

I see this has been up a while, and no comments, so I'll chime in.

Nice effort, good instincts, some nice shots - the UN, the Bridge, and even the pullout on the park, minus the wobblyness.

My .02 - work on your composition, fill up the frame, try for some more interesting angles as opposed to generic wide shots, and shoot more close ups. Consider a monopod, make sure OIS is on, and try holding the camera tight to your body sometimes, kind of like a football. Don't be afraid to put it on the ground and angle it up, and use whatever's available as a brace.

Man, hard to go wrong shooting in NYC on a nice day.

XH A1 Color test

This was shot with Steven Dempseys DISDVX preset (Thx Steve!) I think the colors are very true.

Newbie withi A1 + microX + M2

Well, I took the plunge and decided on the M2 + microX combo. I'm not an expert but I finally got to take some pictures with it. Take a look at my clips. Any tips or advice would be much appreciated. Especially if you are an M2 owner as well!

Here's my vids.

Hi Dave

Not much to say technically - it looks pretty sharp. Obviously you'll want to shoot scenes where there is more of a balance of light between the darkest and lightest areas (a bounce in the woman's face in the park would be a good idea, and some additional background lighting behind the book in the second clip would help too).

Congrats


Brian

Shots from South Urals national park

Hello!

At last weekend I traveled to Mount Iremel, which is in the South Ural Reserve (national park). This is only 250 km. from the city. Just two days in this area with my Canon XH-A1.
Some scenes can be very dark when viewed on the TV, apologize, in this video was not done cc.

Hope you enjoy this video. ;-)

Newbie with 2nd video: Bonfire Video

Hey, This is the second video I put together. It just some shots of a bonfire we had at my grandparents house. I think this one's camera work is alot better, but still needs some work. Also, the video kinda follows the musics dynamics. Again, let me know what you think, I need lots of constructive critism... Thanks!

Enjoy!
