Still Frames by Charles Papert, SOC

Discuss this topic in our GY-HD100 message board.

For those readers who would prefer to have a quick look at some sample frame grabs instead of downloading the video clips, a selection of frames has been provided below. All of them match in order the various sections discussed in Part Two: The Shoot. A little bit of text from the article is included below each frame for orientation.

“Our first setup was to intended to
demonstrate the effect of the Mini35.”

“We then recreated the setup with the Fujinon
16x video lens that is standard with the HD100.”

“…a more exaggerated demonstration of the
selective focus that is possible with the Mini35.”

“…the Fujinon maintained focus from the
foreground to the background, no racking available.”

“…you can see the background slowly drift
into soft focus, again drawing your eye forward…”

“Now, have a look at the close-ups.
These were taken on the 100mm lens…”

“…it’s quite a filmic image quality, but not
overly sharp and tangy as some HD close-ups…”

“This is a bonus clip which was not discussed
in the article, but is provided here.”

“Finally, we did a magic hour shot…
more challenging and gear-intensive.”

About The Author

After completing my degree in Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas, I managed a video production studio "back in the tape days" while waiting for the digital video revolution to arrive and for the internet to become mainstream. Things started to get interesting in November of 1997 when I launched The XL1 Watchdog, my first web site dedicated to digital video technology. In January of 2001, that site morphed into DV Info Net — the Digital Video Information Network. More than fifteen years later, the longevity of DV Info Net is exceeded now only by its popularity and reputation as one of the leading technology information resources in the broadcast and professional video markets.
