Raw sample videos

Hi,

I have uploaded a set of raw MTS files from my recent shooting trip to my Vimeo account. You can download the .MTS files from these pages:

Mike Beckett's videos on Vimeo

They show the camera being used in a vaariety of situations, including high detail (windy trees), handheld, and water reflections and ripples.

Re: Raw sample videos

Thank you for taking the time to post the videos. Very much appreciate it.

If you plan on shooting any more test videos, could you zoom in/out using the LCD (not the rocker)? I'd like to see how slow the zoom is. Thank you!

Re: Raw sample videos

Here's the funny thing... I can't find anything on the LCD that will let you zoom!

Maybe this is the CX700 only?

Re: Raw sample videos

Try the following:

Touch anywhere on the LCD screen (that's not a button) to see if the zoom in/out and record buttons appear.

or

Keep pressing the "DISPLAY" button on the camcorder (located on the side of the camera, below the battery door) until you get a detailed display on the LCD. This should make the buttons appear for zoom and record.

Re: Raw sample videos

Andy,

Got it! I had cycled through the Display options before, but didn't tap the screen (or maybe just missed it). Excellent, thank you!

I will try some footage soon. It certainly seems very smooth, and might do at a pinch if you can't carry a Lanc controller (or if it's raining).

I have taken some new footage tonight to show the Tele Macro in action, and also some slow zooms using my Libec Lanc controller. I hope to get those online tomorrow.

Re: Raw sample videos

A sample of the zooming is shown below:


With the Lanc control, I can do a wide-tele zoom (or vice versa) in 20 seconds, nice and slow.

With the LCD panel, The zoom is around 10 seconds. Still quite usable.

The Vimeo playback may be a bit jerky. Download the original video from Vimeo to see it in its 1920x1080 50p glory!

Re: Raw sample videos

Mike,

Terrific, thank you for using the touchscreen to zoom as part of your test. I was a little concerned that it would be too slow, like some other camcorders I've tested.

When using the zoom rocker on my current cam, I sometimes apply too much or too little pressure, so I just use the buttons on the LCD because of its one speed zoom.

Re: Raw sample videos

On this site we allow Vimeo embedding only... not YouTube.

Re: Raw sample videos

I think you should only allow Vimeo Plus.

Oh, I'm a snob. Just kidding!

Re: Raw sample videos

Hi Mike, How do you upload MTS files to a computer and then to Vimeo? When I bring them to my Mac I can't read them. Need to use ClipWrap and they become .mov

Thx

Re: Raw sample videos

Hi,

It's possible that your editing software doesn't like the MTS files, hence the need to transcode using Clipwrap.

I use Premiere Pro CS5 on my PC, and can import the MTS files directly and work with them. I sometimes transcode to Neoscene, but that doesn't bring me a lot of benefit.

The clips I put on Vimeo are straight from the camera, without any editing, so it's just a matter of directly uploading the MTS file I copy form the camera.
