New Full Res XL2 footage online

I've posted a few more clips online at full resolution.

All were shot in 30p 16:9 with camera settings on default. Typically I used manual focus, white balance and exposure. Daytime shots around the convention center, (cycling, wide shots, stairs) were on a tripod, All other footage is hand held.

Dusk shots were shot with a polarizing filter mistakenly attached to the lens, so you can expect 1.5 stops more range than what I'm showing here. Most of this footage was shot at 1/60 f3.2 gain 0-6.

This clip is shown in 720x480 dimensions...if you want to view it in 16:9: Open quicktime >movie properties>video track>size. Click adjust. Grab the corner of the frame (should be highlighted red) until the dimensions read 480 x 960. Click done.

The previous posted clips are now at:

http://homepage.mac.com/barrygoyette/FileSharing15.html

This is the same file as before except that it has been compressed (see below). It is stretched in preview to 16:9...if you want to view it in native dv format (it will look sharper): Open quicktime >movie properties>video track>size then click normal.

Both files have been compressed minimally from the native DV. I've lost very little in the process, although some of the finest detail appears crisper in the native dv file.

Kevin,

I used the mpeg4 codec on this...so if you haven't upgraded to QT 6.5....now would be a great time!!

Are you using qt pro...if so make sure you are in the video track submenu..(there is also a "size" in the parent menu).

Thanks so much for the footage, Barry. I literally check back every ten minutes hoping for new tests, and just know that we all appreciate them VERY much.

And of course, it looks great. And just makes me want to save my money faster (if that is possible).

Holy crap. I'm at a loss for words. The footage I've seen until now looked great but this is absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous, stunning, amazing, magnificent, spectacular, awesome...you name it. This is it. Thank you Barry for this...I feel slightly more complete after seeing that footage and finding out what my next video camera will be. I see an advantage of owning an XL2 along with my XL1s.

Barry,

Thanks for that footage. I feel much more comfortable about what tomorrow's UPS man is bringing. For some reason, I couldn't get smooth playback but the images were nothing short of breathtaking. I even noticed the insects near the floating flowers. I have QT Pro ver 6.5.1 which is the latest. Maybe my mpeg4 decoder isn't up to snuff. Running on a 1ghz P3 may not be quick enough.

Again, breathtaking, stunning, and all those other adjectives that I can't think of right now.

Thanks again,

-gb-
