Re: Sample clips discussion

Footage of squirrel slowed up to 80%! In ETC mode. Still acceptable footage, IMO.

Re: Sample clips discussion

Great! Assuming that you were using the long end of the 18-55mm f/2.8 the 35mm full frame equivalent lens would be 55x2(MFT crop factor)x3.9(720p ETC crop factor)=429mm. A Canon 400 F2.8L lens costs about $8000!!!

Re: Sample clips discussion

Wow, that's cool Nigel!

I can't imagine what the mm equivelant with my 135 using ETC would be, around 1000? Pretty neat!

No intention to try it handheld, that is for sure!

1053mm

I have a Canon FD 200mm F2.8 that on the GH2 1280x720 with ETC becomes a 1560mm 35mm FF equivalent & you cannot even buy a lens like that.

Re: Sample clips discussion

For my work a 135mm x 2 is not even usable much of the time as it is, but it is nice to have the option.

Re: Sample clips discussion

Jewelry store footage shot with the GH2. Much easier than a wedding. Not perfect, but is it watchable.

Re: Sample clips discussion

Shot and edited a music video with my church's youth group in about 6 hours total.

GH2 was handheld throughout, except for two skateboard dollies and two gorillapod "lock down" shots. Available lighting throughout.

Shot 1080/24 at 80%, which was SUPPOSED to sync with a suitably sped-up audio track, but what I thought was the kids' sped up track was actually normal speed... so there's lots of odd flicker going on due to speeding slow-mo footage back up to normal speed, along with numerous other imperfections. Oh well.

Lenses:
14-140 (all outdoor shots)
20/1.7 w/ .5x Wide Angle converter (most indoor shots)
Oly Zuiko 50/1.4 (kids at the mic)

Anyway....

Cute video. I just deleted a criticism I had written of the rapping, after all they are kids.

Re: Sample clips discussion

Yeah, the whole thing is straight-faced clowning - intentionally so. None of them are planning to supplant 50Cent anytime soon.

Even though it was just fiddling, I did like the results of the 20/1.7+0.5WA. Plenty of edge aberration wide-open, but still useable in the right situation if I really, really needed a fast wide-angle.

Re: Sample clips discussion

Are you sure you're not seeing artifacts that have to do with the SD conversion? That's what I see.

Re: Sample clips discussion

There's lots of that, too :D

The original footage has a ton of blurring at the corners, which isn't so much an issue when focus is in the middle anyway. If you stop the lens down to about f5.6, most of it goes away and you get a nice clean wide-angle shot - of course by then, you're not that much wider than the kit lens at 14.

I'd had this WA adapter in a yard sale box (convenient, considering I'd gotten it at a yard sale), because it absolutely sucked with my HV30. On a whim, I plopped it on the 20 and... well, maybe it'll stay around a bit longer. Next step is to try it on my wife's ELP1s 14-42 lens and see if I can't eek out an actual 14mm on the cheap.

Re: Sample clips discussion

I see, I didn't read your post completely so I didn't realize you were using a WA adapter. Yes, it no doubt compromised things a bit.

Re: Sample clips discussion

I recently shot some fly-fishing footage with my GH-2. Amazingly, a huge bull elk came down to the water while I was filming to drink from the same pool my guide was fishing out of. Simply amazing...

The video was shot in 720p and was editing using Sony Vegas. I used some film-type effects on the footage.

The underwater shots were done with a GoPro cam.

Jerry, I don't know how much things were the results of the film effects you used, but your video was beautiful. Really nice. Great work.
