Chris: For footage to play around with, anything fast, like the dirt explosions that were mentioned, would look good. However, it'd be more safe to play around with water splashes.

I have sat on my front porch and recorded rain splashes hitting wood, and was pleased with the results. As far as settings(using a GL2, by the way): Frame Mode, 1/300 shutter, almost full telephoto on the zoom

you know, since then i have had some fun with very fast shutter speeds (water fountains are fun too). I have gotten some nice results in frame mode, its what i shoot everything in now... I have not shot anyting in normal "interlaced" mode in about a year.

I hear ya. I got my camera a couple months back and haven't shot anything interlaced yet. I hear it isn't true progressive (supposedly does an interpolation type process on the fly, according to a technical article I read), but when you zoom in and examine each pixel to see that it isn't just duplicating fields, but instead giving distinct individual lines, I don't know what to call it, but I like it.

Camera settings? Software? Filters? -->>>

A litle late, I know:

"Filmic Warm
Takes the filmic look and warms the temperature up a bit to make the image feel more friendly and vibrant. "

Adobe has a plug-in that looks like it can make some nice imagery.

Intersesting. I can see that effect working very well in that situation.

The most interesting effect in my opinion was shot using a 45 degree shutter (I believe that was the angle they said???) which gave that slightly choppy effect which looks soooo cool!

too bad the XL1s doesnt have a button for that....

Chris

Are you referring to the SPECIAL EDITION ? I have the originally released BHD, but have been debating on getting the SPECIAL EDITION for the "film school in a box" purpose. Is it worth it?
