That looks really good. Some of the shots are quite filmic, others can't avoid the usual overexposure.

Probably the best I've seen from FX1 so far.

Personally iv seen a lot of footage shot with the FX1 but when I came across this it really amazed me of what this camera is capable of delivering in terms of picture quality and colour and depth. Itís a 200mg file but well worth the download like already said the footage is just stunning.

Actually, this didn't really leave an impact on me as FX1 footage. Some of the best I've seen is here:

which was shot under water with the Amphibico Phenom.

cool

This was some really nice footage, what stunned me the most is the wmv encoding, normally i've personally disliked wmv as a format. The reason that i disliked WMV is that it always tend to make footage soft and "mushy", but this footage has given me some new hope, I shall revisit wmv again.

I have seen some footage of the FX1 + G35 adaptor and it was the best i've seen, it looked exactly like 35mm on SD DVD (dont know about the HD version, since I only watched the web compressed version and upscalled and CC to SD DVD it stilled looked great!)

For Steven White, I edited your post... we had the same thing as the other site you referenced, so I replaced it with our own link. Thanks for understanding,

Hey, thanks Chris - I hadn't seen it here.

WMV really is a good format. The problem is, most people try to take too much advantage of the compression, and bit-starve the codec. Reports are that H.264 is significantly better, but the encoding times get ridiculous fast.

Steven,

Happy to report that I have transfered a minute of these underwater footage to 35 mm. It was cropped to Cinemascope AR and was superb on a 30ft screen.

I have sent a copy to Paul Wags, who send me the raw footage and I am waiting for his responce.
