Thanks for that...I'm using Firefox and the link worked for it, but forgot to check using IE and of course, that didn't work.

Really nice shots set to good music. For my taste I would liked to have seen it be shorter, perhaps about 2 minutes long because some parts were a little repetative. Also some more car interior and motor shots would have been nice. Also some shots from inside while driving down the road. These are just suggestions to consider. I liked it very much. Also nice flash compression.

Regards,

I liked the video a lot. I only thought one of the shaky shots took away from the relaxed feel. Thought the music was great for it. Where did you get the music from? I watched it on full screen mode off your site and thought it looked pretty good, but I'm sure the full res looks better.

Yeah, I flew up there for the weekend for a family reunion and only took 2 carry on bags which I could not fit my tripod in... as for the music, I got that song from http://www.shockwave-sound.com.

I film paintball... in HD...

Yep... paintball... the "sport"... where we shoot little .68 caliber balls at 200mph and 15-20 balls per second... yes... per second... although I don't really consider it a sport, it's hard to understand but I've been playing for 6 years and there's nothing really like it... it's not so much the equipment we use or how we play... it's just the feeling that when you're at a field playing or even watching, you're in a completely different place. You honestly forget about everything that has been happening in your life, good or bad. Nothing else matters, and the only people that really understand it are the ones that are out there every weekend playing... there's nothing else like it...

Now that I'm done with that speech, I'll show you guys some stuff...

First videos were shot with a $25 tripod and $700 Canon HV10... pretty amazing camera for the money...

** Explicit Language... probably ** (I have no clue what videos or what songs do have language, but I'm 99% sure it's there)

Sweet 7 Video... it was raining... a lot (Washington weather)
http://www.lousyheros.com/videos/sweethq.wmv Pretty compressed unfortunately

Battleground Practice Video... raining a bit
http://www.lousyheros.com/videos/bgphq.wmv

Battleground Practice Video 2... Sunny!
http://www.lousyheros.com/videos/bgp2hq.wmv

Sweet 7 Video 2...
http://www.lousyheros.com/videos/sweet72hq.wmv

Now these were shot with an HDR-FX7 and 501HDV Manfrotto Pod (Forgot which legs)... My new setup :)

This is the "Smooth" slow motion feature, unfortunately it's at 1/4 the normal HD resolution
http://www.lousyheros.com/videos/xpslslo.wmv

This is a 2minute clip of some shots thrown together, I have 10 tapes of footage to go through so this is just the start
http://www.lousyheros.com/videos/xpslpat.wmv
*** My favorite stuff so far... ***

The 2 HDR-FX7 videos were not edited as much as the other ones, they were just to show off the new camera...

I have more videos... some aren't worth posting but if you want more I'll see what I can find

Yes both cameras have been shot, in the lense (with UV Filter ontop) and in the front/sides... both work fine... the HV10 had rain damage through the microphone ontop which canon fixed, and the HDR-FX7's tripod fell over and the LCD hinge cracked, sending that to Sony tomorrow :) Paintballs are brittle enough that they don't do any damage...

You have posted 300megs clips! that's a bit large for my internet account, (Here we are limited in bandwidth) therefore I just looked at one of the fx7 samples.
Must say the image lookes pretty amazing, at first it looked like a digital animation film, really sharp and very nice colours. I heared that the fx7 is not so good in low light, a problem more hd cams have. If it were good in lowlight I even would have bought it as a "weddingcam", it looks quite similar to a vx2100 which I use now, only my vx can't produce images like this.

When your fx7 fell, was it unattended? you take a lot of risk which such camera's in those conditions, I would never go in there unless I had a special cover for the camera and something that I could put in front of the lens.
Also for rainy conditions you have special covers which keep the camera dry.

Rainy conditions I used cardboard and duct-tape, I bought a Kata cover for the FX7 which has already been shot multiple times, does a good job.

Then you just get a couple UV filters, 1 for the camera and then an extra as a backup in-case the other one breaks... just a risk you take with filming paintball... the cameras stand direct impacts just fine, I caught one on the inside of the lenshood which sprayed on the filter, but no direct hits on the lens of either camera.

If you want smaller files, just replace the "H" with an "M" I posted the 1280 x 720 files, but I have 720 x 408 uploaded which are half the file size or less...

Those are the "high" quality files... if you want "medium" quality... just replace M in the filename... I have 30something vidoes on there...

Cultus Lake in High-Definition

720p60 actually...

http://stage6.divx.com/user/jackvanc...ition-(720p60)

Shot with an HDR-HC7 on manual settings on a Manfrotto 190XB tripod with a 701RC2 head.

If you can't play the video in the player, you should press the download button next to the play button in the viewer box before you start the video.

Are you on drugs? Seriously. Keep taking the medication.

I must admit it made me laugh just by virtue of its complete inanity. What the hell is going on. Genius !!!. However, although I loved the ridiculousness of it all and laughed my socks off, the film wasn't the best representation of what the dvx is capable of. The audio was pretty poor and you need to invest in some lighting (youtube doesn't help).

Long Beach, BC and Tofino in 1080p

http://stage6.divx.com/user/jackvanc...nset-(1080p24)

No, it's not razer sharp 1080p and the source is HDV, But it's my first attempt at 1080p encoding and 60i to 24p with the pseudo motion blur famous in many films in the past.

Shot with an HDR-HC7 on a Manfrotto 701RC2 head.

As always, if it doesn't work in the player, click the download button next to the big play button before you start the video. after the download is finished, rename the file extension to .avi to view in windows media player.
