Samples using LitePanels Micro and diffusion filter

this short 1080i video used the litepanels micro led light on hotshoe from about 4 feet from table with the micro's diffusion filter attached to led light.

the effect is what some on forum wanted with a medium level of softening.
similar to the effect between a zeiss softar 1 and 2 filter.

for products shots, this diffusion filter maybe too much.

Zylight Z90 runtime on battery at full blast

Just got a Zylight Z90 and a Tekkeon MP3450 battery friday and ran it at daylight and full power on a fully charged battery.

after about 100-105 minutes at near full power, the lights went out. poofed!
lucky for me, i had the litepanels micro as backup, although the light from Zylight Z90 with the anton bauer softbox was so much more pleasing.

anyone has this battery and can share you run time?

FCP audio synch

shot 720/25p, editing native, changed audio in some sequences to stereo pair, pulled all sequences into a new master seq, added some text graphics on top, when unrendered, audio goes out of synch after a graphic - just like a DV sequence..... but unlike a DV seq, where the audio is synched once rendered, this audio remains OOS in exported FCP ref file, and thus in WMV transcode in Episode.

Exported sequences' audio was not set to dual mono - would this have been the problem? Any other checks to ensure synch?

Do you have EX1 in NY/Northern NJ? Lets' jam!

:)

OK, I'm taking a delivery (probably one of the first?) of this Decklink HD Extreme capture card on Fri Jun 27th:

http://blackmagic-design.com/products/hd/

Will test it with Sony V1U over HDMI, as well as analog in.

If you have Sony EX1, join in and we'll test the HD-SDI route as well.

Green screen set up is ready, it'll be especially interesting to see how EX1's footage stands against V1U for keying.

Email me from this forum, or from here:

http://primehd.net/contact.htm

Cheers!

Does P+S Mini work correctly with EX-1?

Does anyone know if the P+S mini adapter will work with an Ex-1?

By work - I mean does it have an achromat that is designed for the EX-1 lens and will stay sharp at wide open apertures.

New Picture Profile in Recipes

Just posted a new balanced and saturated PP in the Recipes sticky, for those that might want to give it a try.

Real Color 1 and Real Color 2 are color matrix settings to raise saturation to or near maximum while holding all vector angle as much as possible.

These settings give a fully saturated look without color shifts on my EX1. YMMV. Let me know how it works for you.

(It does not, unfortunately, address the reddish black problem)

New User Questions

I am finally starting to use my new EX1 and I noticed that the first 30 minutes contained a lot of wavy footage when panning. I set everything to default and auto mode and noticed that the images waved when panning - even slow panning produced this. It happens sometimes when tilting but not as bad. Anyone know why.

I also noticed it here on this person's video:

http://hawaiigoesfishing.com/videos/hgf_103_ulua.mov

and this one's:

http://www.vimeo.com/1230454

Is it normal for the image to wave when you pan? Is there any way to set the camera to avoid it?

Could it be normal when OIS is on?

Also, when using Clip Browser, I can't find a setting to play all the clips in the preview window. Every time I start and stop the camera it creates a new clip folder that can only be played one at a time in Clip Browser as far as I can tell. That is really annoying.

EX1 LCD settings

I thought for sure I'd read some recipes for improved LCD settings on this board but can't seem to find them anywhere. Can anyone point me the right direction and/or repost?

Thanks.
