Here's a video I just completed:

YouTube - HCR Racing Long Travel Kits Compared to Stock

It was filmed using the HMC40 in PH720/60p with the following setup:

- Panasonic Wide Angle .7x Lens
- No ND Filters
- Rode Videomic with Dead Cat for Sound
- Matthews M25 Tripod
- OIS On
- Slow Motion is 25% of normal speed
- Edited with Adobe Premier CS4 on a Macbook Pro 17"
- Outputted using Mainconcept H.264 Youtube HD preset, but changed the fps to 59.94 from 24 fps.
- +1 Chroma

Any pointers, comments, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello -

Have you tried viewing your video using the playback capability of a Panasonic HDTV? If so, is there any difference?

I also have the HMC-40 and I've been playing around with it a bit - not much yet as I'm working on some older projects - but I did confirm that my Panasonic plasma HDTV will play the HMC-40 videos "natively." Meaning that I can take the SDHC card out of the camera, pop it into the SDHC slot on my Panasonic plasma HDTV and just start viewing the raw movies/stills. From the fairly limited testing I have done, I'd say the results have been very good.

If you don't have a Panasonic HDTV, you could probably "test" one at BestBuy. I saw a beautiful 65" Panasonic plasma HDTV with the SDHC card slot in the "home theater" area of the store.

Just an idea for a quick check.

Best,

Lee

Hey Chris

Awesome video!! That would sell the product, no question about it!!!

Gosh, those shocks certainly work pretty hard don't they???

Despite the CMOS sensors, there is certainly no evidence of any motion problems either!! The mag wheels might have displayed some odd traits but no-one would notice it!!!

Nice work and a great sales tool for sure!!

Thanks Chris...never got an email notice that you replied to the thread...sorry.

Here's a quick vid I put together of my bachelor party weekend, mainly just to show you guys what 1080/24p looks like out of the camera. I shot it entirely in auto, and it picked a 1/50th shutter speed I believe most of the time. Keep in mind it's a home video, not edited much at all. :)
