Nothing you can do, balls are going 200mph out of the guns... shutter can only capture so much :P

I'll look at the exposure too, It's pretty much "stock" besides adjusting WB, Gain, and shutter...

300fps/200mph...but with a fast enough shutter, you'll capture them. But were it me, I'd only capture a few shots at high speed shutter for slow motion sequences/cutaways. For delivery to the web, I like the contrasts you've set up; removing gradients and keeping a hard contrast in your frame means that your encoder has less work to do. For delivery to broadcast, it would be a different scenario.
[edit for bad math.]

300 fps is 204 mph ;)

It was 1/2000 shutter for most of the video... some shots were 1/60 because I didn't know how to lock it (first time out with the FX7) but I think all of that video is 1/2000

You should be able to slow some of that down, if you want to see paintballs coming from the barrel. 1/2000 should slow nicely. Looks like there are particles from the compressed air, or maybe dry lubricant from the paint balls too? Might be a sexy cut?

That's why I don't like LCD monitors. Everything except for very contrasty scenes look horridly grey.

Here's my take on it. I pushed the oranges in the mids and the blues in the blacks, then pushed the saturation and twiddled with the mid level to get rid of the fog without blowing out the whites (Final Cut Pro 3-way CC):

That looks really yellow... and the aspect ratio is off...

Sure you uploaded the right file?

I'm using an FW900 24" Widescreen CRT and a Princeton 19" LCD... Both calibrated properly, the footage looked bad... now colors look right...

only file I have of it, I deleted the originals...put a hand on either side of your head and squeeze...that's what they did before they invented anamorphic projectors. ;)

Um, I used quicktime export to make it a jpeg, I didn't change any settings, so it probably defaulted to 640x480.

Could push it more towards red and away from orange a bit..I found that much more overwhelming than the yellow sunny look. It also made the reds blend in and the whole image just became monotone.

Technically, you could push it anyway you wanted, I was mostly showing that you could get rid of the gray wash in the mids without sacrificing your whites to the 100% monster.
