HDR-FX1 stills from recent shoot

Hello all...

Please accept my apology if this isn't the right forum to post...didn't know if this one or the "Show your work" forum would be more appropriate.

Anyway, I wanted to share some HD stills from a recent video shoot I did down around Coos Bay, OR a few weeks ago. I do event videography in the Seattle area and recently migrated all of my DV equipment to HDV (the FX1 to be exact) and this was my first location shoot with the new camera.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/5880964...7594235737072/
(if you click on each still, then click on "All Sizes" you can see a 1280x800 sized version of the image)


The environment in the area we were shooting was very hostile - constant 25mph winds, sand/surf spraying around, cloud cover changing every 15mins (from clear to 100% fog)....I'm surprised no sand got into the camera (it got into just about everything else!) BTW, the images have had the contrast cranked a bit, and the Magic Bullet vignette filter applied.

Those are very nice! Reminds me a bit of some shots I did on the beach in New Jersey several years ago, although they were standard definition with the Sony PDX-10. It really is a challenge to shoot out on the beach with the sand blowing everywhere! My tripod and camera actually blew over when I left them unattended for a few seconds.

Glad you like the shots Boyd! Wow, the wind must have been even worse during your shoot if your camera blew over. I liked the shots/angles in your production (those some day-for-night shots too?)

On a side note, I was really hoping to shoot the footage with the SGpro 35mm adapter, but didn't make it to me in time, so I had to get the best DoF I could with the base camera.

Actually those were night-for-night shots - it was really quite dark and I shot at 1/30 sec shutter and +18dB gain :-)

Funnily enough on that same short film we were shooting on a rather windy beach. I left my z1 on its sticks for to grab something out of my backpack and down they went. Luckily enough they were in a Kata rain jacket and it was also on the left side of the camera with no LCD open so there was no chance of damaging that, the mic holder, or getting sand anywhere.

I've learnt though, haven't left my camera on sticks on their own since, no matter what the shooting condition.

Very cool stuff, guys! Boyd brings up a good point--never leave your camera unattended on a tripod! I teach my students to watch out for that, esp. if an actor or crewmember is walking around. Don't want to accidently bump it.
