Re: AC90 Sample Footage

I found some footage from a wedding done with the camera:
The indoor stuff looks great but I don't like what I see outdoors.

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

Here's a short video of the game footage. I made a quick one for one of our players that broke the all time scoring record at our high school.

I'll try and get some of it up on Vimeo soon as I can.

I'm not at my editing monitor but on work monitor so I can'r t say for sure. I wonder if there was any color correction done. In some or the outside stuff the sky looks greenish, in other shots more blue.

I do know in that sun if an nd filter was not used, it would be hard to get it right. I have my irish level set to -10 on all scene files but one also.

Hi Tim

Were you not shooting a wedding on last Saturday??? Did you use the AC-90 ?? I'm itching to see if it handles weddings well or not??

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

My next wedding is Dec 15th. I can't wait to give it a go.

I can't see the 90 doing bad. At the basketball game I was real impressed with how fast and seemless the auto iris/gain works. I think it's going to be a run and gun dream to use if the images look good. I can't even begain to imagine following a bride in from outside to inside and not have to touch one button......well maybe WB.....that would be fantastic.

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

Hi Tim

If you inside the venue simply let the cam do an AWT on a nice white tablecloth and it will be balanced for the interior and compensate for the external light too. I'm assuming it works the same way as the HMC's??? That's the way I do bridal entry from outdoors to indoors and it works fine. The AWT in auto just needs around 10 seconds to sample and it will get the lighting right...I seldom need to do a manual WB!!

Looking forward to seeing how it handles a wedding...Is the ceremony in a Church or outdoors...My AWT of the AC-130's was very poor but my HMC's in full auto are deadly accurate!!

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

The wedding is indoors. The ATW on the 90 seems accurate but it will shift which can be noticed....but it also has ATW lock, which I like very well.

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

I think every camera will have a shifting WB if you leave it in auto, what is this atw lock? Is it a in- or outdoor preset?

There was one thing I wanted to ask as well, does the ac90 has the synchro scan function to eliminate flicker that you see on monitors or banding that certain led lights cause?

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

ATW lock is really cool. After you set ATW, if you push ATW button again it will lock on that WB setting. I see this being useful at receptions when there are bands or DJ's that have different color lights. Lock will keep ATW from shifting once it's set. Only bad thing is you lose it when the cam is turned off.

Haven't seen anything in menu about "synchro scan"

Have you already downloaded the pdf manual?

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

Do you know what the download link is for the manual? Synchro scan is a feature that's usually on a bit higher end models, I guess the 130 and 160 should have that but the 90 fals a bit between consumer and semi-pro so it could be they left it out.

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

Thx! But it doesn't seem to have that, there is a small part referring to the banding issue and they just state to switch either to 1/50 or 1/100 while clear scan allows you to dial in with much smaller increments. Me no like.

What worries me most when doing events is that LED light is being used more and more and those can cause serious banding in your image (dark grey lines moving from top to bottom of your screen.) I Had this issue at a wedding a few months ago where all the venue's light where small led spots and setting the camera at 1/60th shutter didn't help (tried several shutter speeds but none solved the issue), eventhough I was not able to test it I"m almost sure with clear scan you can make the banding disappear. The footage I got then at a reception looked quite bad and the banding is not possible to remove.

I encountered it a few times as well when the DJ have led lights but then only the dancefloor is affected. Will have to think real hard what to do now :)

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

My on cam light is led, will that cause the banding. I could do some testing if you think it will.

I've only encountered banding with flourescent lights.

Re: AC90 Sample Footage

Noa, here's the test I did with some white cars in sun and shade. Not sure if this is anything you were wanting to see or not.

Scene settings were Detal Level -2, V Detail -2, Coring +2, M Ped -2, Auto Iris -8, Gamma Cine-Like V, Matrix Cine-Like, everything else 0.

Had to upload to youtube, only 1 HD video a week on Vimeo.
