Some Frame grabs from my HD110u

Thought I would share some frame grabs. I shot a wedding last weekend, well, it was more along the lines of filming the photographer shooting the wedding. However, I will shoot just about anything, so I shot the wedding as well.

To get this quality my setup is..
HD110u
Format matte box, no barn door
Truecolors V3 scene file
Shutter at 60
Iris was F4
I was 2 feet from the girls, and using natural light
White balance was 3K
I did no post work, this is straight from Mpeg Stream Clip

Am I missing an option to post an image in this thread?

Looks good.

You mention you shot the girls at 2'.
I thought the minimum focus distance was 4' unless using the macro?

I adjust my backfocus as I need to.
I had, or have footage somewhere of me recording a 100.00 bill some 3 inches away. I did that when I first got the camera and had nothing to do with it but film the cats fur and money around the house.

Don't you mean macro, instead of back focus?! I'm not sure that messing around with backfocus is adviseable at all!

I remember another guy that posted here (Marty Hudzik?) about doing that trick with his Canon 16X manual lens. It's not unheard of, and if you mark the back focus ring position beforehand, you can get it back to where it should be.

Consider it an 'advanced' lens maneuver, not to be done by the faint of heart.

I adjust my back focus, not the Macro. I adjust it for depth of field all the time.
When I got the camera, I did not understand the back focus, it is my first camera with a man lens. So I got used to adjusting it not only on the fly, but for a specific look.

Call me weird i guess. However I am comfy with it.

Back focus is easy enough to re-set that I wouldn't hesitate to use it if I needed that look. I can set back focus in the field just about anywhere, just give me a scene with some detail in it and a viewfinder with peaking turned up. Star charts are only really necessary for film cameras with reflex viewfinders where you can't use peaking.

stephan, i'm trying to get a handle on this back focus thing. can you elaborate on using peaking to set or reset back focus? in what situations would one adjust back focus and what exactly does it do?

thanks!

edit: ok, i found some good info on what back focus is and how to adjust it. still unclear on the peaking part though.. thanks!
