XDCAM HD music video

Hi all,

This is the music video I shot with the F330. All shot in a day. First XDCAM HD production in the UK?

I will eventually upload a HD version if people want to see it. Though just waiting for the software that will allow me to read the MXF files!

Yep, we had a dolly and a light jib.

I've put up a few photos from the shoot up on http://xdcam.com.au/modules/xoopsgal...umName=album07

There should be more in Showreel which you guys should be able to get hold of at NAB.

I want to get the HD version finished. But of course the NLE compatibility thing reared its ugly head. Hopefully it won't be too long.

Very nice--what lens did you use? Also, someone posted that Sony will be announcing support for the XDCAM HD in the next version of Vegas---Suppose to make the announcement at NAB--Have you heard anything.

Thanks David,

Sony supplied a Canon HJ17 lens and the 2/3" adaptor. So I used that most of the time. Although for some shots I tried out a Canon J11 for more width. The trouble with the 2/3 adaptor was the increase in focal length.

Strangely I noticed more chroma abberation on the HJ17 than I did on the J11, a standard def lens!

Thanks Simon, for sharing that.

Which of the Gamma curves did you use? Was there much grading/CC in post?

Hi Alex,

I used the STD gamma curve. I thoight about using the Cinecurves, but I didn't have confirmation from Sony as to their precise characteristics until after I had finished the shoot. If I was to do it again I would probably have used one of them, perhaps Cine 4.

Grading was only very simple. I warmed up the highs ever so slightly, and gave a green tint to the blacks. And that was it. Originally I wasn't going to grade at all. But I gave into temptation :) Oh, yes, I did make a slight s-curve to the curves, as well as legalising levels for the DVD version, of course.
