New XL-H1 speed clip

Here's a clip of a timelapse/undercrank I was going for with the H1. It's called "FountainsSpeed". There's also a PhotoJPEG version that's 53.7MB. It's higher quality and easy to step through frame by frame.

Lemme know what y'all think...

Thanks Barlow. I assume this is the HDV mode.

Thanks Robert! Oh, for PhotoJPEG you can thank Graeme Nattress for that. He told me a while ago that it was the best all around codec for HD intermediate work as far as what was actually available in QT currently. I had to finally get around to really testing it before I could confirm it for my own work.

Cineform someday in FCP may change this, but PhotoJPEG is a killer bang-for-the-bit rate codec.

btw, hope your trailer/feature shoot's going well.

Barlow, I'm just curious: Is that magenta tone in your basket ball footage the same tone you actually saw while taking the footage?

The reason to ask is that it seems most of the XL H1 sample footages people have posted --such as Kaku, Pete Bauer etc.-- seem to share this same (unnatural) magenta tone. In your footage this bit coldish magenta tone pops up, for it does not seem to match with the warm reddish sunset. However, this may well be in the eye of the beholder.

Nevertheless, it would be interesting to know how big are the individual variations between different XL H1s. The custom settings I've used to avoid the magenta bias are:

RGN -2
GGN 0
BGN -2
RGM 0
RBM -1
GRM -2
GBM 0
BRM 2
BGM 2

Could you please try the same settings and tell whether the image became more neutral or not?
