Who would be interested in this....DVD**Read Update**

I hope I don't offend Chris. If I have please kill my thread, but I ask that you leave me free to post.

I'm thinking of building a DVD of sample footage that would contain:

HD1 vx FX1 in Side by Side tests
FX1 vs XL2 in side by side tests

FX1 in it's various frame rates shooting several subjects - skin tone, wide angle, detail, close up, poor light, outdoor, etc.

XL2 in it's various frame rates, shooting severl subjects, as above.
In short something that would be 10-12 minutes in length in SD on a DVD - BUT contain the original files for you to view in their native formats on the DVD.

We sell it for $14.95 plus $5.00 shipping for a total of $19.95. You would be welcome to a $10.00 rebate on the release of our future products on the XL2 and the FX1.

If you would be interested in this - or want to make a suggestion, please email me at dkelly@masterworks.bc.ca.

Chris & the team - I hope this isn't too commercial. I decided to post it after being reminded of how many people wanted to see footage like this when the HD1 was a new baby lasat year. I do not mean to break the rules. A sample copy would be provided to you for review.

If my posting is offensive, please remove it, and accept my apologies. I just thought this might be a help, and if enough people are interested, we would produce it in the next 7 days and get it out fast. I don't see it as a huge money maker, but a service to our community of users and enthusists.

I await your input.

Cheers

DBK

Give the old 1'chipper some respect and make it a HD10. We don't need consumer grade EE for a respectable comparison like that.

Well there seems to be enough interest.

I started the project today. It should ship on Tuesday. I encourage pre-orders, especially the ones to the US as I am in the US on the 9th and would like to ship them all out on the same day(atleast the first orders)

Send a paypal payment to dkelly@masterworks.bc.ca Amount is $19.95 US$

An update for you. I also got hold of a Sony DXCD50WSL
Widescreen. This camera head sells for $19,000 then you can add another $10K for the DSR1 back and this broadcast lens is another $15K - so we will be comparing the following cameras:

Sony FX1 ($3600)
JVC HD1(I no longer own the 10) ($2200)
Canon XL2($5,000)
Sony DSR300($10,000)
Sony DXCD50WSL($44,000)

Lastly, I have some Cine-alta footage that I can use in the comparison.

We'll show outdoor, indoor exsisting light, simple studio light set up, close-up, flowers, skin tones, low light outdoor too.

Variable frame rates on the XL2 and different settings on the FX1
SD and HD from the two HDV cameras.

This will be in SD mode but you will also receive the HDV and dv files in RAW. A windows and mac player will be included.

Ships Tuesday, November 9th. Please Buy now to avoid shipping delays.

All for $14.95 plus $5.00 for shipping. (Coupon good for a $10.00 discount off our future FX1 and XL2 DVD's)

Paypal only: dkelly@masterworks.bc.ca

Thanks and please post any suggestions you might have. I hope to make this the definitive tool for reviewing these new prosumer cameras with the big guns.

Hi Darren,

I'd definitely be interested in this dvd you're planning on releasing. I want to buy an XL2 for indie film projects and documentaries and curious to see the quality of footage it generates. Just a thought: if you could include a DSR570WSPL in your comparison that would be excellent.

DARREN:

I want one disc, but I just don't know how to use or how to get that PAYPAL in my country (Panama). I do have a P.O. BOX in Miami where you can send it, so don't worry about shipping. But I really want to know how can I pay you? We use US dollars as our currency.

We had terrible weather, and I couldn't shoot the outside scenes I wanted. It will be done tomorrow, and shipped Monday.

BUT.....Only 2 people have purchased it. Come on guys, is this all I'm doing this for?
