I guess this kind of footage is more rare than I first thought.

How about some shepherds in a field at night?

Kadir,

Really great and thanks for sharing! I will try your recipe and see what it looks like on the screen.

I've always done color correction using contrast & brightness, another nice touch is changing saturation but not necessarily hue. You can see a trailer I shot with the VX1000 which had correction done to it on my site or here:

Quicktime: www.starcentral.ca/trailers/sophie.mov
AVI www.starcentral.ca/trailers/sophie.avi

I also shot long (usually 20 feet or more from the subject) and the effect of "depth" was achieved on some shots like the close ups at the funeral scene.

Check it out and let me know what you guys think.

Thanks.

What is this!?

I edited some footage from a thing we recorded a month ago. While looking for dropout I saw something flash by.

I don't know what it is, but I would guess it's some kind of insect.

What do you guys say? Anyone ever seen this pheomenon before on your own footage? I know some call them "RODS"
or "Flying Rods"

It almost looked like dirt being thrown from the man's shoe, in the way it originates from his spinning kick. Some might say it was the spirit of a departed person. It certainly wasn't an insect.

UFO, or secret Black Ops jet fighter. Either way, you'd better dissapear before the MIB's show up for you.

I suspect it is an insect or a hummingbird. If you look at the slow motion version you can see the object change direction. Dirt can't do that. Hummingbirds reach speeds around 70 m.p.h. (112 k.p.h.). More than fast enough to produce the flash seen in your footage.

To Keith: It's not dirt, if you look closely in the beginning it changes direction several times.

To Dylan: Yeah, You never saw me!

To Jeff: I live in Sweden, We don't have any hummingbirds here. It's to cold for them.

I'm still puzzled. After som serious viewing I know it travles between them and the camera. (Not behind them) so it has to be small.

Sorry, I thought Sweden had one species of hummingbird. But you do have several species of bee-eaters and rollers that are also very fast flyers and only slightly larger than hummingbirds.

Perhaps we do, I'm not sure about that. I'll look in to it if you want?

I'm quite sure this thing passes infront of them (and not behind)
A bird (any bird) should be quite a lot bigger passing infront of them?

Let's say this thing passes behind them (and is a bird) I have a friend that's good with math, he calculated it's going at a rate of
1600 meters per second. (That's 5249.6 feet per second)
or 57600 km/h (35792 mph)

His math is off. There's 5280 feet in a mile. Your calculations say the object is going a mile per second. Your camera never would have recorded sequential frames of the object.
