HD200 - Wedding Stills

Hi ,

I rented a HD200 for a personal test - here are some stills of the wedding.

http://www.media-in-work.de/fuer_vvf...200/hd200.html

It was

HD200 + STd. Lens (TH16x...) + Fujinon WA converter (0.82).

720 50P captured with Sony Vegas.

No postpro yet, straight out of the cam.

Settings: Blackstretch (+3 I think), Knee ~85%, Detail -5 , no matrix settings.

Black Stretch at +3 tends to make the picture a little washy and low contrast for my tastes. It also adds a far amount of noise to the picture.

You may need it for a certain purpose, but even in low light, I think it is best to stick with standard gain.

I liked the shots Uli.

The black stretch is a must at the reception and in run and gun low light situations. I can see it made a big difference at yours. I don't use it for anything other than the reception, but that's just because I try to shoot for the final output. I think that the ceremony footage will look really good when you compress it in post.

Looks like it was a great wedding for you.

I used to use black stretch in low light but don't now because I found it made the blacks so noisy, especially when combined with gain. It means that only lower gain settings look acceptable. I also don't mind leaving the blacks black.

Hi ,

thanks for all those replies!

I used BS to bring down the iris a bit for wider latitude in the pic - perhaps it was too much, but I wasnt satisfied with the pic out of the cam - it looked Blackcompressed to me - so I went a bit "against" that look. Perhaps that was wrong, I know that IŽll bring the blacks back in in post again...

I must admit : On the TV screen the pics look much better than on the computer stills... CA and noise is less obvious with moving objects...
