V1E Clips

I managed to make some fast clips from my low light footage of the other day.
here are the links:

Guys playing with burning torches, no smear visible when looking at the flames:

A Zepter neon ad with full zoom in:

A low light scene of a shop entrance, quite some vivid colors even in dark:

This is taken of a face with zoom - quite good skin color even in very low light conditions and from far:

Finally shots of color projection over buildings:

The reports of poor low light performance have been greatly exaggerated!

Nice footage Zsolt.

What types of settings did you use with this recording?

Looks pretty good for low light.

Thanks Tony, some more to come. I posted the first one to illustrate the lack of the "smearing" effect. Look at the flames on the torches.

I'm not sure why you feel the need to kill so much fine detail by using 3. Loss of fine detail kind of defeats the point of HD. :)

Are you using a test chart to really see at what point EE appears? And, have you calibrated your HDTV's Sharpness correctly?

Lastly, are you using HDMI or component?

Well, I have got these settings as advice in this forum, so why not give it a try? The purpose was to avoid noise in low light.
I use HDMI and a 50 inch plasma. No test chart has been used.

Could you recommend some cool (maybe tested) settings?

Well, not so big head:) if you look at the German article that you had sent yesterday, they showed the V1 mounted on the same head.

My Redrockmicro M2 also has arrived, so the head soon wont be big at all!

IF I wanted softer P video, for some reason, I would use 5. Otherwise I would use 7 -- the same as for I.

If I couldn't decide, I would use 6. :)

The point is not to remove detail, but to prevent adding too much edge enhancement. So you need a chart to see where an edge appears. You can't do it based upon "advice" as its a matter of judgement on YOUR HDTV.

I saw, but Redrock had special promo, so I got the bundle together with follow focus and some other stuff with a nice Xmas price cut. So I went for that.
It is a very delicate and precise baby. Tomorrow I will try to assemble it.

errm...guess we are off topic here.

Zsolt,

Did you purchase the shim kit for the M2? If you didn't, you will need it. I have the V1U and had to shim the rails and the camera. However, the V1U is SO MUCH better than the Z1U with the M2. The rails slide under the camera, and the M2 slides closer to the achromat (I'm talking about the V1 over the Z1).

I also like the way the V1 monitor sits. I can flip the monitor back into the body and view both zebra and peaking as a reference to my main HD monitor (I'll be posting pictures of my setup as well as video soon).

You can't go wrong with the V1 and the M2.

Todd

Hi Todd, yes the shim kit is included in my bundle. Looking forward to study any info you post on the M2 matter - although I think it will require to start a new thread some place else.
