Chris, I take you're not seeing the weird vignetting that was seen between 10-25mm with Paul's camera.

Thanks a lot Chris.
I'm praying I will have mine mid next week!
Looking forward to your clips file.
Good news on the keying. I'm not surprised.
Looking at those 1080 30P still images posted a day ago or so, I was surprised how well the red car looked. I guess high rez pays off.

I have not seen that but that was one of the clips that wouldn't import for me I'll have to redo that with different settings and see if that makes a difference.

It looks to be Apple XDCAM 35mbps VBR 1280x720 wrapped in mov.

You may need Final Cut Pro with XDCAM codec installed to play these.

Quicktime will read the files IF you have that codec installed.

Maybe it is using some kind of proprietary FCP codec?

Thanks Chris. It looks great, it's also clean.
If you get a chance, try a scene with someone that displays the tighter DOF.

I'm diggin' it, Chris. Looks like the 720p under/overcrank is going to be a lot of fun to play with.

Thank you very much for sharing. :)

Chris,

If you're interested in doing some extra testing, I'm local. I have an HD-SDI capture workstation. We could actually test the output and see if it's "real" 10 bit or not.

Enjoy you're new baby and please keep us posted on your findings!

Kein problem, sobald meine Kamera eingetroffen ist, werde ich ein paar testshoots durchführen und berichten, wie sie ist.
Wollte mir zuerst eine Panasonic AG-HVX200 anschaffen aber die qualität von DVCPRO HD , ist mir im vergleich zu XDCAM EX nicht so besonders überlegen in sachen farbqualität, usw.........

Chris, is the EX1TEST.mp4 stright fromt the camera, or did you recompress it somehow? The reason I'm asking is that it's not recognized by the Clip Browser ("unknown format").

OK - it certainly is not a raw clip, the data rate hitting 43Mbps! Also, it plays with Quicktime (no audio), I guess you prepared it a bit for us:)

Funny thing is it can be opened by Vegas, as well...

Hello Chris, i have a question, do you have problems with the wievfinder and the lcd screen (Death pixel)?

Do you buy the camcorder by BH photo video?

When someone gets a chance, it might be fun to test a standard ExpressCard in the EX1 and see what happens. Hopefully, something good!

It is less sensitive when over cranking . . . but the exposure was my fault I was actually running both ND filters with the iris set to about 4 - 5.6.

I didn't buy my camera @ BH I believe local service is worth so much more. And we have a great place here in Salt Lake called TV Specialist. They are the best.

Yes the MP4 is not straight out of the camera. It was compressed with mpegstreamclip. For my windows friends.

Yes I do have a dead (stuck) pixel on the LCD. It shows as bright blue. But it is usually covered by the Icon that indicates which card your writing to and it's within .25 mm if the top edge of the screen so I am not to bothered by it.

Id love to try a non-approved Expresscard but I don't have any maybe monday I'll see if I can find one @ compusa.
