Most of my other YouTube videos were converted to Divx because I liked the small file size and quicker rendering, but now with Vegas 9 and running 64bit, Divx no longer works so I tried the Sony AVHD internet 730p preset and I'm very happy with the result. Check it out

That looks very clean David.

I'm always amazed that I have an EX3 and yet other uploaders with the same camera just blow my video away with the amount of clarity and sharpness of their videos. I just kinda gave up after a while and assumed it was because they are using nanoflash or final cut pro or something...

This is probably the sharpest video I have ever been able to upload and it was in direct sunlight and I used some ungoldly high bitrate Blu Ray mpeg2 format.

YouTube - Barrett M82A1 .50 caliber BMG in HD 1080p

I might have adjusted the saturation a little but I don't really mess with the picture too much. I use the day time HQ picture profile that I got from the EX section for the camera too. It looks fine but look at this!

It's not on youtube but this is the same camera! I can hardly believe my camera could produce something this sharp and clean!

I must be stupid or something... ha ha.

Youtube is constantly upgrading itself so I just upload the best quality I can (10Mbps wmv).
Though if you need your video to look good NOW then 720P is the best

I just wish I could replicate the clarity of that vid. I see it all the time. I can never figure out what I do wrong. ha ha. My videos on vimeo or youtube look about the same so it's not because he is on vimeo.

Hi Erik,

Try using a neutral density filter to get your f numbers down below f8. I found that almost no matter what lens I am using, it is sharper below f8. Anything I shoot in the f16 to f22 range almost always has that slightly hazy look. Also in post, you might try bringing your blackpoint in a bit more. Finally a hair of sharpening in unsharp mask -- something like 20 or 25 certainly helps mine.

Erik,
I thought the Barrett videos looked really clean. I'm shooting with an FX-7 and what you might want to do is look for settings on the web. I found some settings that other people have posted and have started to play with them. I know you have a lot more options with EX3. There are a couple schools of thought. Tweak your camera to get the shot you want or shoot on the main defaults and tweak in the editing software. Or you can find a happy medium between the two. Definitely look at your ND filters and try to get the f-stop down a little, again depending on the look you want.

I tried an experiment. I actually paid attention to what F-stop I was at...LOL, Even on a very overcast day with full ND engaged I had to use -3 gain to get it to F4 but you could instantly see a difference in sharpness. Then I could click off the ND filers and watch as the sharpness went away as the F stop increased.

I didn't upload anything to youtube but it seems that was the reason for the softness. Thanks guys!

I know this is vimeo but I don't really use different settings for each site so it still applies.

I did this one and made sure the f-stop never went higher than f4. I think the video will speak for itself. I uploaded it in 1920x1080p as a really high bitrate blu ray mpeg 2.

Thanks Erik I love it.... I thought i was seeing the beginning of an old western movie or the new show "the Defenders" at the beginning. Question for you...Did you hand hold your panning or have a tripod. The last minute the video sort of stuttered as it was panning... perhaps it was my computer.

Also after seeing your video I am going to have to get a new 16:9 widescreen monitor! I was atching it on an older CRT (4:3)

Great Job

Thanks David. I was using a crappy best buy tripod. Good thing too because it was hard enough to lug that one up that hill, let alone a heavy expensive tripod. :)

1080p on Vimeo is pretty hard on computers. I will upload it on youtube to see if that helps.
