Norway Scenery #1

I would like to share some scenery from Norway with this community. I'm a wildlife videophotographer situated in Norway. Recently I upgraded my gear to Canon XLH1. I'm very impressed with the quality I get out of this camcorder. The details is stunning.

This file show some of the beautiful scenery we got i Norway in wintertime. The footage is shoot with the 20x HD lense provided with the camcorder. In most of the footage a pola-filter is used and in the sunset scene additional ND-filters is used.
I have used Lauri Kettunes NOMAGENT presets in all shots. I find this preset very suitable for recording nature this time of year in my country.

More info and downloadable file in this link:

I appreciate any comments.

Enjoy

Hi Per Johan, "det e so r°yte gale". This was just a local speach ;)

Trying to download your videofile, but it stops every time I reach 110 mb or so. It's a huge file, I know, but I've got plenty of room on my PC. Can you make a smaller fil, please? I looked at the piece I get to download, and in the end it looks the same as the tapewheels (I dont know the right English word for it) hasn't been cleaned, though I know you wouldn't film without a cleaning your camera :) Maybe it has to do with the downloading problems?

Geir Inge, the file is Mpeg2 rendered stright out from the timeline in Avid Liquid. If you try to view this file direct from Windows Media Player you will most likely get artificats due to the large filesize.
My intension with this file was to let people get "a best possible quality file" and import this into their own NLE's or Compression Units to get whatever fileformat their want in the other end.
Don't know if this is a good idea, anybody?

If there are a problem downloading this file I'm sorry for this. I had to use a server at my work. I've emailed Chris Hurd for storing this kind of file on the DVinfo servers but I haven't got any response yet.

I've wait sometime to hear what other comments I got on this. It this going to be a big proplem for others to view, I curtenly change it with a more suitable format.

I'll try to download it again, later today, Per Johan.
Last time I tried, I get about 50 sec down on my PC.
PS
Today I had plans going crosskiing and take my XLH1 with me, but it's too windy. Your scenes from the "peak" was just stunning, so I thought i should try copying it :)

Per, I had the same problem myself. The file quit downloading around 100mb. I was only able to watch a little of the film but what I saw was truly spectacular. Really nice shots. What a wild place.

The quality was excellent so I would encourage you to keep the file in the format you have it. Chris will get back to you so just be patient.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your comments. I will try to put up a new version of the same file tomorrow whan I'm back at office. I might be some corruption in the present file.
Stay tuned!

I just want you to watch this footage on a HD-monitor, it's so nice to view, lots of details.

This footage was shown today on a exhibition in Oslo, a trade show for sound- and videoproduction business. Lots of wow's from the visitors :-)

I think the problem is that the server is timing out after a certain number of minutes of connection time. I have managed to download 186mb when I got a fast connection.

Updated!

The footage is now updated with a smaller mpeg2 file. You can also download a mov file of approx. 94MB wich should play fine.

Go to my website: http://www.video-film.no/snutter/XLH1-download.html

Nice to get some feedback about the quality between the two files, but also the subject matter.

Enjoy!

Very nice.... You and I have a similar shooting style.

I'm impressed that you were able to shoot directly at the sun in that sunset shot and not get any vertical smearing.

I also enjoyed visiting your site and reading about your adventures and viewing some of your other footage. Keep sharing!

Thanks Steven!
I'v admired your work for a long time. I think I learned a lot from you by studying your films. You got a very very nice touch in your camcorder moves. I have been practising a lot to get the same feel, but I'm not there yet.

How was it downloading the large mpg file? I'v heard from others that the server timed out before completed.
I'v check what other opportunities I have to store those large files, my own website is far too small.

Have you heard from Chris? He is usually quite responsive and accomodating for large files.

The new file is good but not as sharp as your original. I had no problems downloading the new file.

Here's my theory about your server problem. It is cycling through some kind of time frame and then, regardless of who is connected to it, it severes that connection. It has nothing to do with the size of the file someone is downloading. The server simply doesn't give enough time to download something so big. I tried downloading the file from two different computers. The first one began downloading about a minute before the second one but they both timed out at the same time.

You may not care about this but I thought it might be helpful :)

Thank you for the compliments. I'm very honored that you would be inspired by me because I think you are doing some really good work.

Take care.

Nope haven't heard anything yet, emailed him yesterday (thursday).

It would have been nice to upload large file here. In about two weeks a friend and I going to a place called Flatanger. There we are going to film two of our biggest bird of prey, the White-tailed Eagle is Northern Europe largest with a wingspan up to 2.40 meter. The Golden Eagle a little smaller about 2 meter wingspan. We going to sit in hides special made for beautiful shoots of this fantastic birds.
We are both equiped with Canon XLH1 camcorders and we are going to use lenses from the stock 20x up to Canon 500mm 4.0L.
I think those shots are going to be something to look at!

Here's a link to the site:
