Clips from Las Vegas

Well, I'm back from a 10 day vacation in Denver and Las Vegas. I'm happy to say that the HVX and FS-100 performed admirably. By the weekend I'll post more clips on my website, but this is just a quick h264 clip from the MGM Grand Hotel where the Lions were proudly on display. The video is good considering the Lions are on the other side of a thick glass or plexy wall.
But the videos that showed what the HVX can do with some tweaking are forthcoming. I've confirmed alot of what you've been reading here all along about the HVX. I didn't try to duplicate any test that others here have put alot of time and effort in bringing good information to us here in the forums. I did, however, get loads of real world video in a vacation type presentation. I filmed the Vegas Strip day and night, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon from above, below, in a helicoptor, on a boat on the Colorado River, Denver, Estes Park, The Stanley Hotel (Where the Shining was filmed) and more. Great Clips from inside the Bellagio, Ceasers and others. Anyway, more info next week after I get it all sorted. I was also doing comparisons on 2 DSLR's, the Olympus E500, and the Sony A-100.

Here's the Lion Clip. By the way, I couldn't think of music that would go with the clip so I decided on content rather than beats.

Yeah, that video looks really clean. I can't even see plexi sheild. I think it would be perfect if not for all those flash photographers (they'll wish they hadn't used flash when they get home and see the lousy pictures).

I'm wondering though, did you have any issues using that camera in the casino? Did you go to any other casinos? I've been thinking of filming some indoor stuff like that but figured they'd just kick me out.

Oh yes, they will definately escort you and your camera out of the casino. All of them have signs in areas that you cannot film or take pictures. But there are many areas in the hotels that have awesome displays where video and pictures are allowed. As you will see, the Bellagio, for example, has an indoor garden where all the structures (miniature buildings, lush gardens, train bridges, etc.) are made of natural materials. The Wynn has lobbys with very exotic lights and other things hanging from the ceiling.

Lot's of things in Vegas to film. (Although I couldn't bring myself to strap the HVX to the roof of the van)

I got one of these. It works way better than my stickypod and it was cheaper. It has an indicator on it that lets you know when you're losing suction.

Dee, nice footage, I've been there recently, it's a great lion cage. The video looks true to how you see it live and in person. Nice job.

Also, a correction on the Shining movie. Stephen King wrote most of the book while staying at the Stanley Hotel. It was the inspiration for the novel. The Stanly Kuberick film was not filmed there but the 1997 Stephen King miniseries was shot at the Stanley Hotel.
