Great job, Adam. It looks very smooth and I can't detect the flicker I've seen on other samples. My camera's coming tomorrow... Hope to do lots of testing as well.

Excellent. Really smooth. Next year, the HD 200 will be able to accomplish this at 1280x720!!!

It's true... such a sad bike ride.

It just occured to me that next time you'll want to set your shutter a little higher to account for the slowdown. I think for 60p > 24p the best shutter is around 1/160th or 1/250. This way your cars will actually have the look that they were shot at 24p 1/48th shutter but moving very slowly. Can anyone confirm a good shutter to use with intent to slow down?

Nice looking slomo, I can definitely imagine using that for the "NFL Films look" for shooting sports.

Is there any particular reason you were having trouble focusing?

EDIT: In terms of shutter, 1/120 should work fine, it'll simulate a 180 degree shutter for "film look" purposes. For sports I'll go up to 1/250 in order to give good freeze frames and to isolate fast moving objects like hockey pucks a little better (makes them easier to follow too).

I hadn't set the back focus and I'm new to this "real" lens. My old DVX100a was a lot different.

Don't worry about it, you'll get used to it. The trick is just remembering where you're focused and pulling focus depending on whether your subject gets closer or further away. Get used to the focus assist feature, it'll help you "lock in" a lot easier.

Adam, you might be the first person to equate bike riding with "Platoon".

Resolution loss

What sort of visible resolution loss is apparent when watching it on an HD monitor? That's assuming you have one, I still don't.

Otherwise, that was a great clip. The rider must be the most depressed bike messenger ever.

Transition?

Looks great, and promissing for something I have in mind.

What program did you use to convert the 60 > 24 fps?
Can you do a smooth transition from real-time to slow-mo?
Mathematically shutter of 1/120 should equate to 1/48, is this what you used?

And the music - William Orbit's "Pieces in a Modern Style", Handel, I think? Lost the album so I can't check.

I'm glad you included sound. So many people post clips w/out sound and it just doesn't feel right.
