Re: Amsterdam

Kevin - are you sure that the upload is okay? Your videos looks very unsharp and extremelly compressed.

Re: Amsterdam

Hmmm. Look at this. Where are the details?
What lenses did you use? It looks, like the left size of the picture use to be softened by wide angle.
I added just a little saturation to the night scene - to show how much noise and compression artefacts are there.
Maybe is you output editing format too compressed? Colors are very on the "warmish" side. On the attached pic i did just correct colors to make the snow white - an i think it makes a big difference.
A7s delivers so much sharpness and details - i do not understand why not on your films.

Re: Amsterdam

Thanks for your comments. I agree the night time pix do have more noise than I would like. I haven't really found a setting which has barely any at night. Out of the 3 shots at the ice rink the other two have whiter ice. I'm not sure why there's a difference as they were filmed within a few minutes of each other.
I've been using a setting from another forum that has found favour with others. I'll have another look.

Re: Amsterdam

They look soft and noisy for me too. Are you shooting XAVC or one of the other codecs?

Re: Amsterdam

The footage looks soft to me also. If it looks good on you timeline it might be how you encoded it (codec and bitrate) for Vimeo upload.

Re: Amsterdam

XAVC and I uploaded to You Tube at 1080 at the supposed better quality setting rather than faster encode.

I've been having a problem or two with my laptop, so I think the two things may be connected...
