HM700 Example Footage - Interviews
 
I'm going to give you two links.

In the first link I may have gone overboard in boosting the chroma of the picture.

In the second link I reduced the chroma in Final Cut.

Tell me which you like better.

I like the second one more, but still (imo) skin tones are too pink.

The reduced chroma version looks very good on my scree calibration. Also - good resolution & clarity - gives the feel of HD :-)

Don,

I like the reduced chroma better.

Have you worked with the skin color adjust, detect, color range found under camera process menu ... page 78 in the manual? With the corect settings here the chroma might be a little stonger to let the colors pop around the subject while smothing out the skin details.

I've read about the skin detail. Good idea. I'll investigate that. Thank you.

Skin Detail
 
Don,

Actually skin detail function is discussed on page 102 in greater detail.

I put up a new example.. this is shot at 1920x1080 60i in Cinema Vivid mode and Color Gain set to 1. It's a simple shot of my un-smiling wife on our front porch, in the shade.

Soon I'll put up a clip with these settings and add crushing the blacks a little.

I would strongly urge you to take your wife out to dinner with a big thanks from you for being a gracious subject :-)

Looked good to me.

NEW VIDEO!

QuickTime Pro - Export for Web - studio

I did a live shot for CNBC out of NBC's Dallas affiliate KXAS and rolled some footage on the HM700 to see how it looked under studio lighting.

Camera is set to Cinema Vivid and Color Gain =1. Original resolution is 1080i.

Just shot the non-food parts of a pizza ad with my HM700. Here's a link:
