HD Wedding Footage!!!

I have been really disappointed with the lack of footage from the HD100. Seems like there is more problem posts than good clean footage. Anyways, here is some basic unedited footage from my latest wedding in HD.

I used the Truelike 2 preset from Paolo.

Hope you like.

Have you seen much footage of the HD100 and the M2 adapter or the Letus XL Adapter?

I have seen one piece of footage with the Mini35, and it is your footage from "Twist of Fate". By the way it looks totally awesome. I just want to see more of the same. Compared to the HVX Forums, there is not much footage to compare with. That is why I decided to post this footage...

I Really Like this camera coming from the DVX. For those of you out there that are scared of the problems you heard about this camera, I have experienced none of them yet.

Steven,
Have you seen Nate Weaver's use of the mini35 in the Static-X music video? www.nateweaver.net

Or the original mini35 tests on the HD100.

I've seen several music videos that looks great. I agree that more should be posted, which I will once I finish editing my second short and third one too. Casting for my third this week =)

PS I would ease back on the close up of the bride. They don't make her look flattering. Its HD, remember =)

Steven:

Thanks for posting that footage. I'm and FX1 user, and have been curious about the comparison. Very nice.

This is first time I have actually seen raw footage from the camera.

I assume this is 24P stuff, right ? I note a more "juttery" effect on the faster pans. This is what people are talking about that makes 24P more filmic, right ?

Out of curiosity I put this on a 1080i time line with some FX1 footage. I had to rescale yours to the 1080i frame. It actually came out decent, but certainly not as nice looking as the original. ( I'm sure I committed some kind of heresy here. :) )

Nice video footage.

What song was that in the first clip?

Thanks for the reply. This will most likely be downconverted to SD to mix with the DVX during the ceremony. Hopefully next year or the next we will be putting HD-DVD's out. This footage is 24p with Paolo's Truelike setting number 2.

Brian, I agree with the closeup remark. I love closups and sometimes they can seem larger than life on a big screen. Maybe not such a good thing for everybody.

The song is called See the Way from artist "Misty Edwards".

Just to be a HD100 cheerleader, I got the weird red frames and dropouts, and JVC and TapeworksTexas immediately replaced my camera.

I've shot a fair amount since then, and I've had no problems.

Cheerleader? Good thing I don't have my own picture posted here.... otherwise the mental image would drive all to madness.....

not video but negative film

Congratulations Steven
I can`t believe this shots weren`(at least) super 16mm telecined negative.
This camera (and your skill) is really incredible!
I got mine two weeks ago and couldn`t try it in HDV yet, but even in SD the images that the HD 100A produces are phenomenal.
Please let me know your workflow in post production to get these super nice and filmic shots.
Best regards
Ron

Thanks... This is just unedited footage.... Hope to post a more polished version soon..

I use Cineform - Sony Vegas- Compressed to HD - WMV.

The Cineform HDLink is a little ticky sometimes, but the codec works good.

I am trying to get used to no OIS and Manual Focus. Really does take lots of practice.

Anybody else have some wedding footage to post?

colour "contamination"

Today I made a HDV720 30p test.
I saw it in SD ntsc and, despite resolution loss in some moviments, the images are beautiful and surprisingly very filmic also.

One thing has called my attention since the first time I used the camera:
even after I white balanced the camera (no auto) I have noticed that is easy whatever surrounding colour refleted in the main subject to "contaminate" it.
It happens much more frequently than with other cameras - most broadcasting - I worked in the past.
Anyone with similar experience?
Best
Ron

Would you post some of your 720 30p footage?

Steven,

Just wondering if your settings are stock. To me it looks like the footage is a little washed out. The camera work is great, but it's just the colors aren't as vivid as they could be. My H1 looks like this on the factory settings but I now use Steven Dempseys (aka Disjecta) settings for the H1 that he calls Panalook. I've compared the two directly, and the difference is huge.

He is an old DVX user as well, and I find his settings bring out some rich, vivid colours. If you look on the H1 forum you can see some of his footage, most recently Friday Harbour - San Juan Islands. The colors in the outdoor footage on that and several other clips of his are far superior to what the H1 records on the default settings.

I'm not trying to offend, or provoke an H1 v HD100 ruckus, just thinking that you could probably get more out of this camera with some preset adjustment.

Ken

I thought the footage was kind of greyish. Maybe I am color blind but I see a lot of hd100 footage that has kind of a grey tingy look. Maybe compress the blacks?

I am a complete newb when it comes with color. I like my footage to be bold, with crisp blacks but obviously not super contrasty.
