Re: Pixellation in 50P/60P mode

It's night time here as well and it's pouring with rain!

The clip looked very over-exposed to me Serggio ..was that manual exposure cos with auto the image should never be so washed out, with no profile it really crushes the black level down to zero or even lower so if anything with no profile at least the blacks should have been very solid and I see none of that.

I checked out the clip in Sony Vegas Videoscopes and the whites are blown out over 120% ...if you drop the gamma curve down 50% to try and correct the levels the shimmering has virtually gone but the overall image is still over-exposed.

Try a clip again with correct exposure or run the camera in full auto ... In progressive mode you do need to keep the shutter a LOT lower either with ND filters or smaller iris otherwise the highlights will still blow out in such bright light!

Re: Pixellation in 50P/60P mode

Hi Serggio

Nope, I'm in Perth 4000km to the West!!

I looked at some of my wedding footage when the shiny limos arrive and there is a tiny sparkle here and there. In 50P especially you do need to keep your shutter speed low and if the camera iris cannot close any more you need to put on an ND filter to reduce the light and shutter speed. At weddings I sometimes just don't have time to do that so I put up with the odd bit of aliasing ... When you shoot in auto make a note of the aperture and shutter speed in the sun, then move the car into the shade and test again and you will see the difference!!

At weddings I have no choice where the car stops so I usually shoot that with a manual lens so I can stop right down so my shutter is at a decent speed ...At 50P try to keep it at 100 or lower ..in 50i you can usually get away up to 1/400th but in super bright sun in auto you still might get a few sparkles.

If you want to shoot and expose manually then use zebras at 90% and make sure ONLY stuff like skies have the stripes on them ...if the car is full of stripes then you need to close down the iris!!

Re: Pixellation in 50P/60P mode

That's aliasing but I have to say I have not seen it this bad before, I"d take the camera in for service.

Re: Pixellation in 50P/60P mode

This is the closest I could get to replicating Serggio's shot:

PP4, 1/50, f16, 0dB: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rgc7lv50ob...00002.MTS?dl=0
ND filter, PP4, 1/50, f5.6, 0dB: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6sndyr69fb...00003.MTS?dl=0

There are no signs of moire or aliasing that I can see, although there isn't anything in the shot that would really test that (except maybe the trees?).

I've never noticed before, but the ND filter seems to create a yellow tinge. I was using auto WB so maybe a custom WB would fix it.

Re: Pixellation in 50P/60P mode

Sounds like the camera has an issue...If my shutter is high and it's a very bright day I will get a tiny bit of aliasing on shiny chrome strips that the more vintage wedding limos tend to have, but nothing to cause any distress!

Yellow cast seems weird ..normally ND's give me a red headache and that's due to infra-red contamination.

Ok, so Serggio's camera is going to Sony for repair and hopefully all will be well when it comes back

Re: Pixellation in 50P/60P mode

One thing I noticed about Serggio's footage is that it was hand held or on his shoulder. Jody's seemed to be on a tripod which may minimize the moire.
Serggio, what framerate were you using? 24P? 50i? So maybe 4 variables combine to make bad moire:
1 frame rate
2 shutter speed
3 exposure
4 camera movement

Re: Pixellation in 50P/60P mode

Hi Steve

He was shooting rate in 50P as my original post was all about why profile PP3 causes posterization on the image that Pete Rush was experiencing. Yep you can see it's handheld when the zoom gets tight.

I don't think the over-exposure helped either so maybe the camera does have a fault?? With the clip exposure as long as Serggio had zebras on the whole frame would have been covered with zebra lines as it was blown out 120% according to my vectorscope.

At weddings sometimes you just don't have time to use a tripod but I can keep the camera almost as steady using my support rod.

We will see what happens after Sony have taken a look at it

You're welcome.

Yes kit lens. I started zoomed out at 18mm, then I zoomed in, not all the way to 200mm but close to it.

I'll have to try again tomorrow, as it's night here now.

I have the EA50UH, which is the North American version. But in terms of hardware, it is exactly the same as the EH.
