JPEGS are better than nothing. Just set compression quality to the highest setting. We will still be able to see how well the XL2 performs.

You know instead of registering with some service or whatever, why not just email 'em to me, we have tons of storage space and server bandwidth for this sort of thing, and I'm happy to host them. Thanks,

wow.. then u're lucky all I could download was the tiff file and 40 megs of the clip (pretty close). It didnt go very fast but at 95kb/sec from the dvinfo server the speed shouldn't be the problem. Well I wish myself luck in the future :-)

Okay, here are some frame grabs from the DV Expo's film noir scene, that my brother (Mark) promised. I managed to upload them to my old Aol webspace. We came across the fact a couple of the frames became interlaced.. due to using 2:3 instead of 2:3:3:2.. we believe. On clips you can try a 3:2 pulldown to fix those frames.

As far as settings are concerned, everything was done in camera, of course, with the CineGamma on and I believe the Black setting set to press. The setup levels and pedestal were also tweaked, don't remember the exact settings. The b&ws were done with the color gain all the way done and the colors were done with the c-gain still down a couple notches as well as the red gain down a bit with the CineMatrix on. All of the shots were done with the film grain on.. forgot to take some with it off.

Oh yeah, incase anyones wondering... the color images were taken when one of the Canon guys went a little overboard with the fog machine. ; ) One of the Canon guys rushing into the set to help clear out the fog was the guy who shot all the XL2 demo videos from the Expo. Which is what the XL2 intro clips on CanonDV.com are of.

I'll be looking into posting some of the video on a pertinent threat.

I should probably discuss this with you offline -- but this is quicker -- the ones you sent, I couldn't open. But I can grab the ones you just linked to and upload 'em to our house to take the pressure of your server if you want. A short video clip should be no problem either.

I was around when the fog machine went bonkers -- talk about a glitch, I think people were convinced something was seriously wrong when they thought it was smoke and not fog. It was a laughable moment after it finally cleared.

Sounds good Chris. Lemme know when that's done.

Here's a link to a short b&w clip I put together from the scene.
It's compressed with mpeg2 so it'll fit on my webspace. I preadjusted the aspect ration and did the pulldown in after effects first before rendering it in premiere.

Since the audio was just a garble of background noise, I threw in something else to set the clips mood :}

I'll post a color clip soon too.
