Here are a couple of half-size .jpg's which show the color difference Martin is talking about. The 8-bit version is on the left (or top, depending on your browser) and the 10-bit version is on the right (or bottom).

Barlow,

Since we're on the topic of filters... are you using a matte box or threaded 72mm on the front end? If a matte box, which one?

Thanks,

Ken

That 1/8 pro mist is a nice subtle effect BTW.

I downloaded ahhcute before it was pulled.

Barlow, my apologies... I didn't even look at this thread until now. Sorry about that.

Just a reminder -- I'm happy to host video clips here for anybody. Plenty of server space and bandwidth available.

Rain short - Reposted!

I reposted this. Thanks to Chris Hurd for hosting my file. It has been raining all week so I haven't been able to do much with the camera so I said to myself "Self, why not shoot the rain?" :)

http://media.dvinfo.net/xlh1/rainfinal.m2t

It's a big file (357mb) Right click and save as...

I don't seem to have editing privileges for the first post but I made a few changes. Disregard the link in post #1 and use this:

Thanks for the update Steven... the post editing privs expire after 24 hours I think, so a corrected follow-up is always the best way to go. Much appreciated,

Very nice. Never figured rain could be that amusing. I noticed some artifacts but I figure that has to do with the compression of the file? And how did you do that with the clouds? Is that the feature called "interval timer"? I am looking to do that and I want to know how.

Thanks Fredrik,

The artifacts are as a result of multiple compression passes, they are not in the original. Cineform and Premiere Pro combo is still very buggy but it looks like there will be a fix very soon.

The new timelapse at the end was done in real time and then sped up in post. There is not an intervalometer on the camera. Even though the DVX100a (my other camera) has this, I rarely used it, preferring to do it in real time.

oh, that's odd since the XL2 has it. But I am going to give it a try and see what happens.

Lighting Test

I was watching "21 Grams", a great film by the way, and was inspired to do some lighting tests and added a little Magic Bullet Bleach Bypass. I think it looks pretty good.

500w softbox for keylight, 250w Lowel pro light for fill and another 250w Lowel for a backlight (need to better position that one) for the first closeup.

Night Footage??

Does anyone know where I can find any city night footage shot with the XLH1? I've found one shot, but it was too dark to be a good example.

Thanks,
Paul
