Can't download and play your clip for some reason, but as I have spoken about before, as well as the codec hitting its limits, you are also getting the rolling shutter effect from CMOS chips with the flash running over three or four fields.

I do wedding videos and often use slow motion which makes this effect stand out like a sore thumb!

Am hoping the XDCam EX will have CCDs, but have not heard anything definite yet.

Cheers Vaughan

I joined this forum just to comment on this. My V1 takes great pictures, BUT, if you are going to be in situtations with lots of flash photography, buy a camera without the cmos chips. The resulting video is mostly unusable.

Removal of offensive frames?

Can you remove the offensive frames? In the past, with DV, if I had a bad frame, I simply copied the good frame next to it and pasted it over the bad frame. It actually looked fine. With HDV, I'm not sure that it is possible. I use Avid Xpress Pro and can convert it to Avid's HD codec, which is completely editable like DV, so I'm sure it would work with Avid.

Hehe, you asked for it. Well, if 'event' coverage you mean weddings and such, there are things you can control and some you can't. I have a specific line in my contract about photographers intruding on the video. Sometimes it can't be avoided, so the flash photography just becomes part of the video. So with exception to a slingshot to his flash, (which would not be professional, but very funny) you could go into the video and slice the frame darken that frame and maybe you wouldn't notice it so much.

Hi Curtis -
I feel your frustration...

I'm just going to bring a tranquilizer gun to the next wedding... anyone other than my wife (photog) shoots off a flash or stands up and blocks my shot, they're going down...

I have a couple cams running so I've got a cutaway angle in most cases...

The FX7 looks incredible to me, as does the little HC7 - both just knock me out, so what if there's a little problem with the flash, still looks better than what a flash did to my old TRV900s...

Editing out a frame or two is an option, slo-mo presents a problem, but like anything else, you learn to work with the challenges as well as the plusses...

Now, anyone have a slightly used tranq gun I can buy cheap?
