EX-1/EX-3 raw footage?

Can anyone please upload some raw footage shot with an EX-1 or EX-3? Doesn't matter what it is, just full HD cause I'm just planning on buying an EX-3 (unless my budget won't allow me, then I'll settle for the EX-1) and am wondering if my PC can handle raw 1080p XDCAM stuff...

I tried searching for a similar thread but I didn't find anything... If I missed something, apologies in advance.

If you're wanting to see a variety of shots, this is a short excerpt of a 2 hour documentary that I am currently working on. It will show you the poorest of locations . . . empty hotel banquet rooms with just a plain white wall behind the talent. This is an example of the very worst of locations . . . The EX-3 certainly helped make the locations tolerable to the eye.

or is it possible the request is for RAW HD-SDI footage off the EX? If this is the case, then and ftp server would be required to make a full HD sample clip available for download. An full HD-SDI frame grab into Photoshop comes out to a 16.7MB file size. Please clarify what your expecting by using the term RAW. Cheers!

Jon,

I ordered an EX3 yesterday, so I downloaded your samples, too, to see what to expect. I noticed in two of them that they change their brightness about two seconds after they start.

Is this the standard behavior of the EX3?

Thanks for the answers guys, but as Jon pointed out, I needed this footage to test my PC, I know what the EX-1/EX-3 can do image wise, hence why I'm planning on buying one, I was just curious as to how my computer would "react" to the raw footage it produces.

Thanks Jon, I've downloaded your files and played around in Premiere. Seems to work fine, which is a relief. I use both Premiere and After Effects CS4 so as long as I can work with it without any hassle on those two programs, I'm a happy guy.

As for my definition of "raw footage," I don't know, I guess whatever comes off the camera at full resolution? I am not much of a DoP so my technical terms are very limited, as I'm more focused on writing and directing and letting my small team handle all the camera work, unfortunately I have to be the one investing in equipment and then doing the post-production work, so that is why I have to do all the research involved, but once the letters and digits start to appear in debates, I am, for lack of a better term, severely limited.

By the way, I can probably make a FTP account on my server if some of you have more footage to offer, like Barry was suggesting. And maybe more people can benefit from it and not just me...
