looks very nice. I may want the women to come with the shoes though ;) My only grip is the women are all in action shots, but then the shoes are %80 filmed 'static', kind of throws the flow of it off for me, especially since their legs are usually wide stance, then the shoe shots the feet are always together, and don`t seem to be in the same locations as the women. I personally would have included at least one shot connecting the legs to the women as well, as a shot either shows the upper part of the body, or just the feet, again feels disconnected to me.

Very nice! Congratulations!
While we can debate over the content and direction, sometimes the client wants it his way, that shouldn't take us from appeciation for the quality of the camera and good work of Director of Photography!

Just curious of how did you encode video for the internet, the quality is amazing for file size!

Thanks, Oleg!

The file is encoded by quicktime 7. It is a H.264 file, the best that I know.

You are right, Nathan. But it was planned to be like that. Its a very common language among the commercials here in Brazil. The product and the model doesn't have to be connected all the time. We call it "pack-shot". The client gave us 9 pack-shots to be inserted in the 3 commercials. Each commercial has 15 seconds. Making a connection between model and shoes would take a long time, and we would miss a lot of beautiful images, breaking the mood.

;-)

interesting, so did they give you footage of the feet and just have you film the models and scenery? (sorry it seems a little unclear to me if a 'pack-shot' is something preshot, or a 'must include') The camera work and image quality are great, I was just looking at it as a whole production rather than just marveling at the H1`s ability. A great tool doesn`t make great productions, great people who use them do.

No, they didn't gave us any footage. Sorry if I didn't explain the process very well. It is a "must include", like you said.

I completely agree with you. A great tool doesn't make great productions.

Andrea, I am taking your advise and will get a rain cover for my XL-2 prior to heading down to Brazil. I will be there last two weeks in June. Thanks for the advise. Bob

Hey Bob!
One more advice.
You should bring a very good insect repellent as well.
Sometimes you are gonna need it.
Hope you enjoy your trip to my country.
:)

And Mike,
Feedback like your keeps me going.
Thank you so much.

:))
