Spoon Footage - Comments?

Would anyone like to comment Pro/Con on the footage from the SiliconHD cameras?

According to one viewer: "That last clip was seriously impressive, would love to see a comparison in the near future with the viper."

I was a critic of the previous demo footage, which looked a bit soft to me. But I have to say, this is downright awesome! You guys did an excellent job with this camera and codec, and I will be SERIOUSLY considering using it on my next feature. Well done. I would be very interested to see how this footage looks projected on a 35mm film transfer.

I have one question: What was used for the color correction?

The SiliconHD has a built-in 3x3 color matrix embedded in the file. During editing, you can elect to apply it to the output footage, modify the matrix or diable it complete and use 3D color correction tools such as Color Finess.

Here is the pop-up window of the control panel

I will ask Francois to confirm what or was not done to the footage.

Either way, we are pleased to hear you positive feedback. What is your next feature?

I'm aiming to do a comedy, but it is WAYS away. You'll probably have about 20 more features shot with your camera before mines is done (I must shoot mines next Summer in 07'.)

The footage HAS NOT been graded . . . he mentioned that in the blog.

So you're seeing stuff *straight* from the camera.

But, as Ari mentioned, all the footage is RAW, so you can modify the color matrix to what you desire, or apply your own color-correction in post . . . all non-destructively.

Wow,...

It's gorgeous. It's not video,....but not quite film either. It's the FUTURE!! dun dun dun. No but seriously,....amazing looking footage. I wish that this system would be available sooner. I'm not sure if we can wait until the November release,....might have to go with HD100. We'll see. Some of the clips are a little jittery,...but that's probably on my end, yeah??

Depth and color are ridiculously good,.....and the movie looks pretty interesting!!

That's gorgeous footage Ari - a big step up from the heavily compressed 1/3" ccd hd cameras. To my untrained eye this looks like the quality I've seen from the SDX900, which of course isn't hd. I look forward to seeing your progress.

Shocked

I added my comments to the blog, but literally my jaw has dropped and I'm speechless. It's unbelievable that this is here, now, within price-reach and almost ready. There's no going back.

That footage is nothing short of amazing. How come you guys have been so silent about this camera? Never heard about it before.

There's not enough of us to-do the shouting :)

Frankly there's a lot of work to be done for the product launch, and there's only so many of us, so the more people that see images and pass the word, the better :)

Ari - Right here on DVi.

If I hadn't checked this thread and go to the website to look at the footage I would still be unaware of this camera.

Also, I love your idea of using RAW, although I hope using it PP2 will be totally transparent, ie, just like any other format. Although I'm a PP1.5 user so maybe Vegas people won't fancy the idea.
