Footage from Tallinn, Estonia

Here is a clip taken in Tallinn, Estonia (Eastern Europe) for your enjoyment. All effects were done in camera (blurs etc). Color was adjusted in camera as well so this is raw stuff. The camera resolved dust on the ND filter during the macro zooms but that's life when your shooting docs, Right!? The Doc these shots belong to will be complete in Feb 07 for your viewing pleasure (if you watch PBS).

Tallinn Estonia Old Town wmv .

Enjoy and keep shooting!

Very beautiful stuff, Stephen. What lens and camera settings did you use?

What tripod did you use?

I don't watch PBS that often but I just put that date on my calendar. I can't wait to see it. I'll tell my dad: "yeah, that was done with my camera"; he is a PBS whore.

Your footage looks great!

Stephen,
What was your primary recipe for the nice colours?
Also was this shot in 720 30p or 24p

Thanks

That was awesome, a bit shaky sometimes, but very beatiful.

Hi guys,

Scott, the principal scene file was Panamatch. I used ND2 + 0.6 ND filter and higher shutter speed on the stock 16x lens to get the images where I wanted them (color wise). Steven, it's a 30fps project (no film). Johnathan, the tripod was my ultra light Libec M20. Some shots in that piece were at full zoom like the weather vane and bell tower etc.I'm in the market for a new ultra light tripod since the M20 is a little too light for the HD-100. Jordi, you're right, I'll get around to correcting the nuances later.

The camera does make a beautiful image. Enjoy.

Stephen,

Beautiful! Great latitude and very nice compositions and angles. I am so happy I own one of this cameras.

Yes - superb Stephen.
You could worse than try the new (ish) Libec LS38 - perfect for the HD100 and brilliantly made.

"higher shutter speeds"

Stephen, yes beautiful looking footage. I notice you used the onbooard ND filter and then added another 2 stops of light reduction and adusted shutter speed. How does manipulation of shutter speeds affect colour?

Shutter shouldn't affect color at all, it just increases or decreases the raw amount of light that the chips register. If you're using a scene file in which a color will change hue or saturation the brighter or darker it gets, then that's the only way shutter would affect colors.

Stephan,

Doesn't he mean that he used the higher shutter speed to get less light, in combination to with the ND filters, to get bright, but not washed out colors.

On a side note, in some circumstances, wouldn't a higher shutter speed on video give a "crispness" to the image that would enhance the vibrancy of the colors?

Amazingly crisp images Stephen, the front side of the church, toward the end, jumps out of the screen! :)

ND = Neutral Density, doesn't affect color saturation or hue at all. All that ND and shutter do is cut down light to let you open your iris more and in shutter's case, strobify motion a bit.

I'm not sure how the motion characteristic of the video affect color rendition. Might be worthwhile to try it out, but I've never noticed a visible difference in color rendering when I kick in shutter.

When you have an ND filter on the lens you can open more the iris without overexposing your image.

The more open the iris is the more saturated the colours will be. This is what you learn in the first year of filmschool. :)

So, Neutral Density filters DO affect color saturation. You can try it yourself at home. Lock the camera in position and take the same shot with the iris almost closed and wide open (adjust exposure with ND). When you compare the two takes you will see that the one with the Iris open has obviously more colour saturation.
