Broadband users only - WIP

I'm putting some scenes together representing some of the nicest shots I've gotten so far with the XLH1.

This work in progress is an absurdly huge m2t file for those interested (almost 600mb). Music and some shots are proxies only at this time but it has a nice hypnotic vibe to it.

I haven't tested it so it may stop abruptly towards the end if the whole file didn't upload properly.

It is presented to you "as is" :)

Looks great Steve! very nice shots! Framing is excellent!

What were some of the settings you used and what did you capture it on?

Thanks Lowel. Captured in Premiere Pro 2.0 via Cineform's Aspect HD. Exported as a Cineform avi and then output to tape using Vegas 6d.

Cineform's HD Link has some funky bug regarding motion rendering when sent to tape and Premiere Pro 2.0 still isn't compatible with the XLH1 for printing to tape. Apparently that will be remedied in June when Adobe will provide an update to Premiere Pro 2.0 supporting native 30f and 24f that will be available as a free download from Canon's site.

Looks great on the PC. I will put it on a DVD and play it on the Linkplayer2 in the morning. We'll see how it looks on a 60" screen.

Sasa,

Are you right clicking and 'save target as'... This one is a long download but it's great to see the rez and detail this camera is able to deliver.

Steven,

Continued nice work, This medium lends itself well to land/seascapes, Nice to see the shots that those previous frame grabs were from.

Ken.

As is is pretty darn good. I put the M2T on a DVD-ROM and played it on the Linkplayer2 attached to my 60" Sony WEGA.

Very nice. Very close to the way film looks on the same system.

Well done. That is certainly something for many of the rest of us to aspire to.

Still nothing!!!!
I did everything and I am really frustrated...
It keep saying: Getting file information... Forever!!!
I normally have no problems with downloading anything else.
And I would like to see Disjecta's work with H1...

Another great job. I'm guessing, though, that you could make a fine film with my old digital eight. I've seen your other films. This shows you've taken the time to frame and set up the shots, to expose them right, and to present them in the breath taking format...

How do you do the smooth tilt?

Steve:

On the clip where you are at the dock and tilt from looking at the water up to the horizontal (mountains in background), how do you do those very nice smooth, slow tilts?

Also, very nice assortment of m2t clips you have on the forum. I have reviewed most of them to see what the XH-A1 video might look like. They can be a little glitchy on my JVC DVHS though (3/2 pulldown problem or something).

Thanks!

Thanks Jeff. Regarding the smooth tilting, it just comes with practice. I tend to use the weight of my body and the camera to achieve the smoothness. I slowly move my body in towards the downward handle of the tripod.

Imagining you are moving a huge 35mm camera also helps too :)
